3 out of 5

I am a Christian and believe in Heaven, but I still have a hard time believing this story. I believe that people may “see the light” and still not die. However, I have a hard time believing that Colton was in heaven long enough to see and meet everyone he claims. When people go under they have more unique dreams and being raised in a Christian family and having a Pastor as a father the dream he could have had makes sense. Most of the information he gave could have been overheard and his parents asked leading questions. I felt the movie was better, but not necessarily nonfiction. I felt there was also more facts in the movie. I enjoyed the story, but as a fictional story.
