Film Review: ‘The Investigator’

Variety gives a generally positive review to a new Christian film called The Investigator here. The publication says, "This odd duck of a Christian evangelical production, written by Rich Romano (brother of Ray).. has grossed a respectable $100,000 and should continue to play well to its target demo as it expands...for much of its running time, it’s possible to lose sight of the movie’s agenda and get caught up in its hokey machinations." Find out more about the film at its website here.
