Ray Comfort’s 180 Movie: Ray, the well-known evangelist and writer (and the atheists’ worst nightmare), has recently released his short documentary titled, “180.” In this short film, Ray takes to the streets to ask some interesting questions about Hitler, the Nazis, and also….abortion. So is this movie worth it? What is my opinion of his movie as a Christian? How are others reacting?
Ray Comfort 180 Movie Review
I happen to like Ray Comfort. I also like his partner in his “Way of the Master” ministry, Kirk Cameron (who didn’t appear in this film). I like them because they are funny, talented, and also have a passion for spreading the gospel in an “in your face” style. Of course they aren’t perfect (who is?), and I don’t necessarily support every statement they’ve ever made; but I generally enjoy watching them online, in debates, and so forth. I’ve also read some articles online that were quite interesting, and only after the fact did I realize that Ray Comfort was the author.
Anyway, Comfort has released his new 180 movie online, FREE, for all to watch. My wife and I both watched the movie, and we both enjoyed it. It has some moments that made us laugh, some moments that surprised us (basically the way people can rationalize killing a child in the womb amazes me), and it was entertaining and somewhat educational. Overall, I would definitely recommend you watch it if you have the time.
This is definitely a “pro-life” movie. Ray cleverly starts the movie by asking various questions of Hitler and the Holocaust. After people talk about how wrong it was and how much they cherish life, he then flips the topic (does a “180”) to the topic of abortion. It’s surpising to see so many people who were totally against killing innocent people in Germany, now suddenly begin making odd rationalizations for killing a child in the womb–seemingly with no emotions involved at all. It is clear to see that to some people, a baby in the womb is something that can be discarded like moldy food that you forgot was in the fridge.
Ray then tries to uncover their bad arguments, provides some counterarguments, and so forth. At the end of the documentary, a few people appear to have changed their minds on the issue of abortion (did a “180”). It was definitely interesting watching other people’s views on this and to watch them try to reason it through in person. It was visibly uncomfortable for some of them.
What Do Others Think of the Movie?
One thing that surpised me was that it is actually getting very good reception among people online. Many of the comments on the 180 video were positive. I even asked some atheists on a forum what they thought. Of course, some atheists still can’t get over the “banana” incident Ray had a few years back, and try to bad mouth Ray over anything he does (and any Christian for that matter). But generally speaking, many of them actually said it was a good movie, and some atheists (who were also pro-life) actually said he did very well with it. That shocked me.
I shared it with a few Christian relatives, and they also enjoyed it as well. Overall, it seems to have received very good reviews. Don’t get me wrong, there are bad reviews as well. But from what I can tell, the only ones giving it bad reviews, of course, are the staunch “pro-choice/abortion” people. But that doesn’t surprise me a bit.
Generally speaking, it seems most people who were neutral on the issue seem to think this movie was very good. Some even have a change of heart after watching the film, and switched to supporting a more pro-life stance.

Conclusion: Ray Comfort’s 180 Movie Was Interesting
Again, I did enjoy the film. It is only about 33 minutes long, and it is free to watch online. I will embed the video on this web page, but you can also find it by googling it or going to youtube.
It also made me laugh in one part. Ray pulls one of those mind tricks on this guy. He asks this one guy, “Spell shop.” The guy spells S.H.O.P. Then Ray asks, “What do you do at a greenlight?” The guy goes, “You stop.” Ray then says, “At a greenlight?” Then the guy realizes Ray got him (you go at a greenlight, not stop!). I got my wife with that joke later (she didn’t watch the film until a few days after I did). I’ve had a great time getting people with that joke the past week. I’m snickering to myself right now…
Anyway, this is an excellent pro-life movie, and I’d like to publicly say that I fully support Ray’s effort in making this film. I hope he keeps up the excellent work in these projects, his writings, and his passion for spreading the gospel.
