At the movie’s start, a group of surfers looks for their friend Shane Badman on a beach in Los Angeles (John Terrell). The next thing we knew, he was taken to the emergency room of a nearby hospital. He’s already dead, which is a shame. Is he going through all this, or does he have a terrible dream? The worst way to start the day possible.
Here’s the Trailer:
The inside story
Shane gets a promotion, but Hannah goes to him because he seems to be in a bad mood. When she asks him why, he says, “I’ve worked all my life for this moment, but I’m still not happy.” “I’ve worked hard all my life to get to this point.” Shane says he still wants more, even though he was given a promotion, but he doesn’t know what that “more” is. Joseph says no to Hannah’s suggestion that they provide some extra money to the Lord. He’s too busy to worry about small things (although he does have time to hang out with his buddies).
When Hannah brings Shane to church, Minister Bill (Jeffrey Grinel, who looks like a real pastor) likes to preach about Hell. Many Christians don’t believe in Hell because they haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. In his sermon, Pastor Bill talks about this. One reason is that people want to be in charge of their lives instead of letting Jesus lead them. Shane makes snide comments to Hannah about the pastor’s sermons while they are at these services or keeps rolling his eyes.
The movie goes back and forth in time to show Shane’s rich life and his hard work in the afterlife (nothing bloody or gory, though). We see him in Hell with other imperfect people, like Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung, and the Zodiac Killer, or being told by one of the devils in charge of all the wrong people why he’s there and what he did wrong.
Shane Badman’s friends from the Los Angeles area are looking for him on a beach near their home (John Terrell). The next stop is the hospital’s emergency room, where Shane is terrible. Since he’s already drowned and passed out, there’s nothing we can do to save him. Shane’s ghost is starting to move again after his wife Hannah and their friends die and are buried. Since he doesn’t believe it’s real, he feels like he’s in a dream rather than entirely in the present. This happened without my expecting it.
The ending, says director Timothy Chey, is “extremely uplifting” and “satisfying.” “Unlike Bunyan’s story, ours ends well. So, we show Hell as it really is to make it scarier. No one should be able to go to Hell while we are working without our prayers and warnings. Chey says that this is the case.” Spurgeon’s theory says that heaven is full of people so close to being saved. “If hell is going to be filled, let it be filled while we’re working.”
