Movie Review - Facing the Giants

Just watched a great movie on Saturday night, Facing the Giants.

This is a great movie with biblical values and a good story line. The actors aren't polished Hollywood types, and it shows sometimes, but it is much better that most of the "Christian" movies we have been exposed to over the years.

Good movie to watch if you like football. Good movie to watch even if you don't like football. It is available to rent from most major rental chains.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars. (I've always wanted to say that....)

Here is an description from Christiancinema.com

FACING THE GIANTS is the heart-warming story of a downtrodden Christian high school football coach who turns to God when everything seems to be going against him. Trusting God to do the impossible, Coach Grant Taylor and his Shiloh Christian Eagles soon discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.

This new, action-packed drama from the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL has had theater audiences laughing, crying, and cheering. The best family-friendly film of the year is now available on DVD!

Oh I absolutely loved that movie! I can't wait to share it with Quinton when he gets out of that cartoon phase. I think it is comforting to know that we have movies to chose from now. Praise God!

I show the movie at Temple Heights and watched 75-80 year old women scream out loud every time the kids did something great on the field.They also got a great biblical message from the movie with so many themes centered around the Word of God.
Watching the wind change directions while looking at the flag was powerful.Kick it NOW.
