When I first saw this movie I had thought it was about John Newton the man who wrote the hymn, but it is so much more. Based on the struggle of William Wilberforce to end slavery in England, this is powerful movie about morality, force of character, and God's Grace. Superb film making. I would love to see more of this kind of cinema!

This movie was incredibly well-acted and the story astonishingly well told. I went to the movie expecting it to be some dry old documentary reenactment, and I was pleasantly shocked to find that this movie about Wilby Wiberforce sucked me in and took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. This movie is powerful and really advocates the grace of God. This movie is my all time favourite. I recommend it to anyone, even if you're not into God. Amazing Grace is a fascinating historical piece, and draws you into its wonderful presentation of past events that have helped to shape our modern world. Amazing grace, was, simply Amazing.

Amazing Grace is the true life story of Sir William Wilberforce who spent his entire life and much of his fortune to end slavery in the British Empire. A rising politician, by 1807 British ships were banned from catering to the slave trade, and in 1833, slavery was banned in all British territories around the world. Wilberforce's final success ocurred just days before he died. The title of the movie comes from the hymn Amazing Grace, penned by John Newton, a former slave trader who saw the evil of his ways, and a friend of Wilberforce. This is a beautifully photographed movie, delicately produced and directed. It is of great historical value.

If we could keep the story aside for a moment, which in and of itself is very powerful, the components of the movie: music, cast, acting, and direction are brilliant.

You will be glad you spent the time watching this film.

We saw this movie first in the theatre. Since then have had it home from the library. Finally I bought a copy for our church library. This is the story of Wilbur Wilberforce and the abolition of the slave trade in Britian and North America. Excellent viewing!

I loved this film. It is difficult to find films these days that are entertaining but not superficial. This movie had a great balance of comedy and seriousness. Very uplifting. Great family film although there are some parts that may be too much for young children (i.e. descriptions of the treatment of slaves).

I think this is a must have DVD for every family. In a world where real heroes are hard to find, the story of William Wilberforce shows us a man of courage, character, and resolve to do what is right. History books do little to show the struggles it takes to make changes for the betterment of all people. The story shows us that we can use our talents to promote good in the world. War is not the only place where heroes are made. This man spent many years fighting for the abolishment of slavery at great person sacrifice. We sometimes forget the price that was paid for what we enjoy today.
I greatly appreciate being able to watch stories like this where there is no nudity, sexual content, profanity, or excessive violence.

Ce film par les réalisateur de Pride and Prejudice est très bien écrit et a de très beaux paysages et costumes. Les acteurs sont des visages familiers des films anglais, sinon les plus célèbres, mais l'acteur qui joue Wilberforce est plus beau que le personnage historique.

Le film est très inspirant et évite les pires scènes de abus des esclaves qu'on a vu dans d'autres film sur ce sujet. C'est le fun de voir le premier ministre William Pitt qui était si jeune quand il est venu au pouvoir. L'histoire d'amour est un peu prévisible, mais l'actrice est très jolie et intelligente.
