Directed by Michael O. Sajbel

The ultimate gift is a subtly movie that plays with the human sensitivity and leaves you wanting more, I did enjoy this movie more than I expected to. After seeing the bad ratings it got, it took me more than 6 years to see this movie but after seeing it I wonder why I waited so long.

The movie had something I did enjoy, which is the beautiful scenery it displayed although the plot is quite predictable, as you can guess from the start how some events were going to end, but the scenery and the shots will take you by storm. The cinematography of the movie was nice enough to make you know that a considerable amount of money went into this movie’s production.

The movie is based on a bestselling novel of the same name written by blind novelist Jim Stovall. The movie was funded by a financial group with the intention of busting customer patronage which actually worked for them.

The movie/book is about 12 gifts that a man wants his grandson to acquire, the gifts were work, friends, money, family, learning, problems, laughter, giving, gratitude, a day, loving and dreams. The aim of this, was because Jason (Drew Fuller) was a spoilt brat, who has never worked a day in his life and doesn’t know the value of the 12 gifts, so his grandfather after his death decided to take him through a life lesson that he will not forget easily, with the hope that at the end Jason will come to value and understand those gifts.

To help him along the way, Jason met a friend named Emily (Abigail Breslin), who helped to achieve his grandfather’s goal.

Drew Fuller plays the lead Jason and to be honest, the moment I saw him was like “isn’t that Chris Halliwell from the television series Charmed” because I have to be honest after Charmed I don’t remember seeing Drew anywhere else. Bill Cobbs is getting old but you can see from the movie that old age has nothing to do with talent because he did deliver and the movie gave him a sweet assistant that was just like the mother to the protagonist, since the protagonist mother was busy with her younger lovers.

Ultimate Gift can be seen as a cheesy film that plays on your emotions, but it is a nice film one many should watch and enjoy.
