Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Hillsong: Let Hope Rise

For a Christian rock band that allegedly spends so much time writing songs, it's stunning that most of their music sounds the same as other like-minded schlock of the genre. Nevermind that, the long-delayed Hillsong: Let Hope Rise is a weak look at a band that, despite passion and inspiration, can't overcome the typical woes of simply sounding and appearing ordinary in both content and their cinematic presentation.
