“Creation” Reviews

Creation opens today in the U.S.

Creation opens today in the U.S.

While Creation is already on DVD in the UK (and here if you like to download stuff), the film opens today in select major cities in the U.S. (the NCSE has a list of those cities and theaters or on the film’s Facebook page). I will keep adding reviews or interesting coverage of Creation (IMDb, Yahoo!, RT) to this list as I see them:
