This story focuses on being ready for the Lord’s return and primarily features characters David and Lori (husband and wife team David A.R. White and Andrea Logan White). In the story Lori becomes a Christian who is ready to meet the Lord but David, her husband, has been resisting. He focuses on his detective and police work and when he takes a long awaited vacation with Lori he can’t seem to stay away from talking with his boss (Eric Roberts). He begins to have dreams which vividly seem real and in each one Lori leaves him and he panics each time, not knowing what has become of her. When some Christian friends (Who are along on the boat trip) witness to him, he doesn’t want to hear it…at first. But he soon believes there is something to the dreams and that he is not ready to meet the Lord.
This movie is entertaining, with a few fights and police work thrown in to boot. It is also a bit of a mystery as the viewer must wait to learn what is happening when David first believes Lori is coming up missing, and when he struggles with what he should do regarding Lori’s Christian beliefs.
“In the Blink of an Eye” fortunately takes more time than the blink of an eye for the plot and character development, and we happily recommend it for viewers twelve and above, due to some violence. In one scene a woman is shot and blood is seen on a wall. It is realistic looking but brief and doesn’t cross our violence level of three, which would disqualify it from being awarded our Dove Seal. There are some mature themes in the movie. However, this is an important Christian film and definitely worth seeing.
