Critical reception[edit]

The film won the 5-Dove Award from the Dove Foundation, their highest rating for a "family approved" film. Some secular critics did not like the film. For example, Gabe Toro of The Playlist wrote: "The ideas behind the film are laughably primitive, and it’s startling to see an actor of McDowell’s caliber swept up in them. At the point where Satan begins taking credit for gangsta rap, it’s clear that the ignorance that powers this film is borderline dangerous. . . In short, it’s embarrassing on almost every level, poorly written, shot, scored and edited and bereft of a single idea, interesting or otherwise." Mr Toro gave it a Letter grade of F.[1]

In contrast, Suing the Devil received a 38% audience approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. No major critics reviewed this film.
