JIMMY is a beautifully filmed television movie and DVD. It’s about a 14-year-old boy who’s mentally challenged and deathly afraid of water. Jimmy tells the truth, even to his own jeopardy, and he sees watchers or angels with whom he communicates. Jimmy’s father is a small-town attorney. His grandfather is a retired power company lineman who suffers from a heart problem. His stepmother loves him dearly. Jimmy overhears a man paying two high school football players to throw a game and trying to get them to sell drugs. The man discovers Jimmy and kidnaps him with the intent to kill him. The remainder of the movie is an exciting attempt to find Jimmy in the Alabama woods.
JIMMY is a well directed movie. It’s well acted, especial by the boy playing Jimmy. As with many low budget movies, the script has some plot holes when it tries to rush the ending. There are two strong Christian conversion scenes, including a poignant scene where Jimmy witnesses to his dying grandfather. Because of the thrilling jeopardy and beautiful cinematography, MOVIEGUIDE® commends the filmmakers behind JIMMY.
