7 Days in Entebbe

Based on true events which took place in 1976, 7 Days in Entebbe is a trip back in time, with bated-breath moments of terrified hostages, guns pointed at them with the threat of death a real possibility. Two Palestinians, part of the Liberation of Palestine group, Brigitte Kuhlmann (played by [...]

Gone Girl

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Jack Reacher

This movie is witty and features an interesting plot but the language and violence crosses our acceptable levels of family-friendly viewing. A man accused of murder asks for Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise), an ex-military investigator. Reacher winds up working with a beautiful defense lawyer and the [...]

Wrath of the Titans

This is a visually stunning film and the dramatics in the movie hit just the right notes. Kronos, Hades and Ares join forces to overthrow Zeus. Zeus's son, Perseus, must defeat Ares and protect his own son Helius. Enlisting the help of Queen Andromeda, Perseus has much to overcome in rescuing Zeus, [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Get ready for some laughs when you see this movie. And it is nice to see a movie, a new major release, which doesn't contain a lot of strong language. It has a few innuendos, but it is not gratuitous, and the physical humor of Rowan Atkinson is worth seeing. I get the impression the filmmakers made [...]

Surrogates

This is a dark picture, set in a dreary world of earth's possible future. People live vicariously through the surrogates while they remain in the comfort of their homes. Considering how much some people stay at a computer screen, it is not a plot impossible to imagine. Bruce Willis stars as an FBI [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

The rolling green hills and period costumes make this film beautiful to the eyes; the unoffensive dialog is easy on the ears; but it’s the classic story of family and love that makes it a feast for the soul. Set in the 1700s, we see a time where people were courteous and refined, sometimes to a [...]

Pride and Prejudice (2005) – Filtered

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is the best film I have seen in a long time with great acting and a great love story. This film makes the viewer long to have lived in the 19th century. Ms. Elizabeth kept this reviewer smiling, waiting for her next remark, This was a very clean film with only one kiss, at the end of the film [...]

Doom

February 7, 2006
"Doom" was one of the first "first person" shoot 'um up videos games for computers. The player sees everything from the gun barrel point of view and works their way through a hi-tech maze shooting everything in sight. Over the years, as computers have become faster and graphics have improved, you [...]

Doom – Filtered

February 7, 2006
Nothing can make "Doom" family friendly. The story follows a marine corps in the future which is given the task of securing an archaeological dig on Mars. The cast, including The Rock, do an excellent job of being psychotic and disgusting while upholding the banner of a military operation. [...]
