  • Its hopelessly stodgy execution will test the patience of even the most enthusiastic audiences for faith-based films. show more

  • Despite some fine production values, lovely photography and smart casting of a range of British stage and screen actors, The Christmas Candle can’t quite move beyond the weary metaphors. It has the feel of a slick television movie. show more

  • Ultimately, this throwback, made-for-TV-style film takes the easy way out in a cheesy climax, but its resolute quaintness may appeal to the kind of viewers who regard electricity as disturbingly newfangled. show more

    This was the best movie I have watched in years, it is 100% family! and shows the real meaning of Christmas . I can\'t wait until it comes out on DVD . I would go watch it again. I loved it. Need more movies like this!!!

    I loved this movie - beautifully filmed, beautifully acted - incredible message. I wish movies like this were in wider release so more people would be able to see them.
