  • Unplanned, 2019 - ★★½
    (”Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    Unplanned does a lot right. The women, often young, who resort to getting abortions—they’re treated sympathetically and with love.

    But I wasn’t sure what to expect. There is an unfortunate shot at the opening of the film as our protagonist enters a building. After she enters, the camera does a slow, dramatic pan over to the sign out front— “Planned Parenthood,” it ominously proclaims. Now, the shot may be appropriate; I personally think every time you pass a PP facility it would be appropriate for the sky to darken, thunder to clasp, and organ music to play. But the problem is, right off the bat, the filmmakers assume the audience is on their side. They assume the mere sight of the words Planned Parenthood will elicit a shock. Those who are sympathetic to PP? They’ll put up their defenses immediately. 

    And then when, in the first scene, we get a shocking portrayal of an abortion, complete with ultrasound and blood-filled tubes, the abrupt, upfront shock factor may further alienate those viewers who could potentiallly be otherwise won over with a different approach. Why start upfront with the abortion? Why not place it where it should have been, after we have come to know and sympathize with Abby Johnson? After all, Ashley Bratcher’s portrayal of Johnson does elicit sympathy. It’s the strongest performance in the film. 

    The truth is, I don’t agree with the approach the movie took. I could totally see someone complaining that it “preaches to the choir.” If you’re not an Evangelical Christian you may feel that the “Churchy” tone, common to all Pure Flix productions, is akin to jargon. I am not an Evangelical; I’m a Latter-day Saint. The tone doesn’t resonate. I imagine other Christians like Catholics or more traditional Protestants would agree. And if we don’t really get the tone, how will those entirely outside of Christianity? A few shifts in tone and focus could have done wonders. Last year’s Gosnell from director/actor Nick Searcy, with a screenplay by Andrew Klavan, is a pretty good example of what I mean.

    But I started the review saying it does a lot right. And it does. It treats women getting abortions with sympathy. It tries to show that some ways of protesting abortion aren’t effective. It doesn’t show everyone working in PP as evil. And yes, its portrayals of abortion are factual. In the Ultrasound abortion scene , the nurse and doctor are real pro-life converts in the medical community who used to do that type of abortion. They act out their jobs as they would have in real life. And Abby Johnson, the person on whom the movie is based, was a consultant on the film from the start and has confirmed the veracity of the portrayals.

    If someone knows these things going in, they will see something of the grotesque horror of abortion and the profit-based reality of PP’s business tactics regarding it. 

    I welcome anything that sheds light on these realities.

  • ‘Unplanned’ Shows That Witnessing An Ultrasound Can Change Everything
    (”Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    The story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life activist, should remind us all that abortion hurts living babies.

  • Can ‘Unplanned’ Actually Convince Pro-Choicers Abortion Is Wrong?
    (”Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    This isn’t your typical cheesy Christian film but, given the message, it's likely to attract a niche audience that already knows the truth about abortion.

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
