I’ve been following Creed of Gold for awhile so I was excited when director Daniel Knudsen contacted me about reviewing it. It is an action adventure story unlike any of the other Christian films I’ve seen.

College student Adam Smith (TAYLOR LINDSEY) faces off against the entire international monetary system in a saga that begins with his father Professor Dostoevsky in Moscow. Russia and ends with Adam in New York City. What began as a simple term paper on the United States Federal Reserve becomes a fight for their lives as Adam and his research partner Kirsten (ELLEN LAWRENCE) seeks to expose international corruption.

Creed of Gold is a beautifully shot film. Kudos to Stephen Higginbotham on his cinematography. The camera work gives this movie a high budget look. Also, Rebekah Franks and whoever helped with locations did a fabulous job of lining up some incredible locations. Great locations but for the Russian period scenes as well as the contemporary scenes.

Director Daniel Knudsen is a young man, but he obviously has a natural ability to visualize scenes and bring them to life.This is his fourth film to direct. I can’t wait to see what he does as he continues to gain more experience.

The writing and acting often felt stiff, but after checking it out on IMDb, it appears that this is a first film for almost all the actors. With that in mind, the acting was not bad at all.

If you’re looking for something a little different than the usual Christian movie fare, then Creed of Gold may be a good choice. Check it out!
