WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
When a young girl is raped by her motherís boyfriend and then banned from the house, she leads a tough street life. Now, sheís made it to death row and it seems only one man can help her, Bishop T.D. Jakes!
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
For the longest time, Iíve avoided reviewing this film. The subject material just didnít seem to interest me in the least. After being pressured from Joblo many times over, I checked it out. My final report is that this film is NOT entertainment. What it does serve as is maybe an answer to a problem supposedly a lot of women have Ė which is molestation and rape. Call me very uncomfortable watching this film, but I could see how church and T.D. Jakes might help someone thatís gone through such trauma Ė just donít ask me to like it.

This is a Christian film that deals with issues, nothing more. The performances were very realistic, so much so that the film was really hard to watch during some scenes. I also could appreciate how real the characters were. Here are churchgoers cussing, killing, smoking pot, etc. Thatís not something you see in a Hollywood type film everyday. In the end, the film is just not entertainment and I would point you in a different direction, unless you are a female whoís been through such trauma Ė only then might you appreciate this film.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
I canít believe I actually reviewed WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED but there it is. Itís a Christian self-help flick STRICTLY for women that have been molested or raped Ė which Iím not one. For what it is, itís not too shabby but neither is my job.

Props 2 > Action films with explosions and consensual sex

Final D >> Abused Women Ė Check it | Everyone Else Ė Donít
