The New York Times
Startlingly direct if unavoidably preachy, The Second Chance takes aim at Christianity's racial divide and the corporatization of faith. Its message is simple: being a Christian requires more than just dropping a check in the collection plate every Sunday morning. Full Review

The crisply made feature delivers an involving if not always persuasive portrait of religious leaders in conflict. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
A movie-of-the-week treatment of race and class, the film credibly portrays the day-to-day workings of an urban ministry. Full Review
Lou Lumenick
New York Post
Its message is sugarcoated in a schmaltzy, clichd story line about Smith's conflicts with streetwise black minister (Jeff Obafemi Carr) - and sabotaged by hackneyed dialogue, sluggish pacing and a listless performance by Smith, who only springs to life when he's singing. Full Review
