Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, the script profile accurately reflects the book.

Draw of Story

The story begins with a reincarnation of one of Mary's twin sons to a baby in Michigan. It stirs many questions about where the story is going and what ideology it is following.

Possible Drawbacks

The story following Matt's time in the military feels overly long. There are point made that connect with what Matt discovers about himself but much of it is filler. There should be more focus on the good deeds he accomplish after he realizes who he is instead of the mundane details of his life leading up to it.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES A LITTLE BIT ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that Matt is one of the fraternal twins of St. Mary and has a special connection with her and God. He receives signs and visions that allow him to help others. The unique view on Catholicism would push me to watch this film.

What’s New About the Story

The story is original because it deals with reincarnation in the Catholic religion which normally is tied with Eastern religions. Matt is seen using his connection with God and The Virgin Mary to help solve crimes. That is not original.

Lead Characters

The lead character does not stand out. The characters are very two dimensional. They dialogue is very predictable and gives little character distinction.

Uniqueness of Story

This is an average story that needs a more clear ideology and plot. It is made more complicated for it without enriching the story.

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

This is a work in progress because as is, this will not appeal to a wide audience.

Tips for Improvement

The story should focus on Matt learn about his past life quicker. There are too many moments shown before that time in his life that do not connect or enlighten that story afterward.
