Facing the Giants Delivers the Goods and the Word

"There are basically 10 reasons "Facing the Giants" is a movie that every family in America should watch together:
#1. This is a movie about overcoming great obstacles, something every family faces.
#2. This is a movie that does not rely on sex, violence, or profanity to carry a weak or boring plot.
#3. This is a movie that examines the relationships between family members, and offers sound Biblical advice on how to make those relationships more successful.
#4. This is a movie void of famous actors with large egos to build upon, which means cast was able to focus on the overall production and not worry about the performance of one actor or actress.
#5. This is a film that stirs all kinds of emotions and can definitely clean out clogged up tearducts.
#6. This is a movie with some great football action scenes that rival any larger, Hollywood, big-budget film.
#7. This is a movie written and produced by Christians dedicated to their work of reaching out to a lost world with the message of hope and love.
#8. This is a movie that celebrates the power of the human spirit to rise above what we think is possible.
#9. This is a movie that just seems to have the Lord's blessing on it throughout the post-production, production, and distribution.
#10. The DVD has many extras that give the viewers a taste of the amazing character and the pure hearts of the people who helped make this film a success!
I've just listed 10 very good reasons to purchase "Facing the Giants". It is not my goal to write a review of this movie that spoils the plot, declares one actor better than an other actor, or compares the storyline to another movie.
My review is to let anyone who reads it know that this is a movie worth owning and sitting down to view with the family.
See ya next review!

"A football coach who is facing being fired and having trouble conceiving a child with his wife feels overwhelmed and turns to Christ to help him through the tough times in his life. The message of the movie is that while you can't control what happens in life, you must give it your all anyway. He decided that whether or not his team wins, whether or not he keeps his job, whether or not he can have children, he will do his best in every endeavor in his life and glorify God regardless of the outcomes.
His wife is played by a sweet and lovely actress who faces her own hardship as a woman who wants children and is having trouble conceiving. Many of the teammates have personal issues they must also overcome.
This is a great family film, very uplifting, and I'm glad I came across it."

"Where can I begin? This movie is awesome. Christian or non-Christian, you can't helped but be moved by this movie. The plot, the characters, the message, everything is just great. God truly had a hand in this movie. I can't wait to get the DVD so that I can watch it over and over. My eight year old son sat and watched the movie as if he was glued to the screen. Get the movie. Watch it with your family. God will change your life. Check out Flywheel as well."
My Favorite Movie of All Time

"I laughed. I cried. I was genuinely moved to get my life closer to God. It is an awesome movie with an awesome message. Anyone who claims to be a Bible-believer or a Christian must see it. It was a totally clean movie - something sorely lacking among today's movies (no foul language, no fornication, no alcohol, no drugs, and no criminal violence). It just goes to show that you don't need big name actors or a huge budget to make a great movie. If a small church in south Georgia can pull this off, then hopefully it will inspire other non-Hollywood, family friendly entities to do the same. Don't let the PG rating fool you - just some secular progressive liberals upset about "too much God" in their opinion. Anything that puts Biblical Christianity in a positive light will be offensive to them."
