Plot: David Taylor (Boris Kodjoe) is a dynamic young R&B star whose chart-topping albums have earned him fame and wealth, but whose decadent lifestyle has estranged him from his father (Clifton Powell), the Bishop of his hometown church.

external linkIf the plot wanders through several predictable situations, and it does, the movie never lingers too long on those developments before cutting back to the best gospel music I've seen on film since "Say Amen, Somebody." Like an Astaire and Rogers musical,this is a movie you don't go to for the dialogue. 3/4

external linkEven with moments of soul-pumping, hand-thumping, hallelujah-shouting bliss, ``The Gospel'' does for film about as much as a monotone monkey can do for music. 1/4
--Chelsea Bain

external linkThe movie's worth seeing if you're moved by the music, but bring some patience, too. God's eye is on the sparrow when it should have been on the script. 2/4
-- (Boston Globe)

external linkOne of the joys of this film is its soundtrack of excellent Gospel music, energetically choreographed. Set within worship services as well as a special concert, we enjoy the music of Yolanda Adams, Fred Hammond, Martha Munizzi, and the “American Idol” finalist Tamyra Gray. 4/4
--Denny Wayman and Hal Conklin (Cinema in Focus)

external linkThe Gospel doesn’t have the mass-audience appeal it ought to. As it is, the gospel performances recommend the movie most highly; otherwise it’s not due for much praise. 2/5
--Marrit Ingman (Austin Chronicle)
