A new level for Christian Cinema - Great Film!

"I was unsure of what to expect from Hometown Legend. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. In fact, this film marks a new standard for Christian Cinema. The story was very good. I did not find it to have any major unexpected twists, but it was different from many of our modern "feel-good" movies that solve all the world's problems in a couple of hours. In fact, the movie ends surprisingly. I'll not ruin it for you. Even though all the world's problems don't get solved by the end of the film, the viewer is still left with a wonderful feeling that the important things in life have been realized. This movie reflects masterful storytelling. The characters were different than in many movies. The whole movie is from a Christian world-view, so that makes a big difference. I cannot recall anyone smoking in the film and there is no sex (not even implied sex). I was a little surprised to hear the acronym S.O.B. used. Also, one of the coaches from an opposing team uses one curse word. So, this film is pretty much squeaky clean. The quality of this movie is why I claim it takes Christian Cinema to a new level. This is a feature length film with great editing, wonderful camera work, and fine acting. I have not seen another Christian film that was filmed this well. Except perhaps "Chariots of Fire" - in it's day, that film was a benchmark. I would even say Hometown Legend is a higher quality production than the Left Behind movie. I am very impressed with film. I rented it tonight. It is going on my Christmas list. I want to own this one. I think most people will enjoy it."

"I'm pretty critical of movies, but this movie definitely ranked as a 5-star movie for me! It's got great moral fiber throughout, has a compelling storyline, great character development, and has a great--but not unrealistic, sugar-coated--ending. My favorite lines from the movie are when Elvis (the star football player) and the Christian girl who is paired up with him to pray for him are at her house together. Elvis says, "I'm surprised your dad trusts me to be alone with you." She responds, "He doesn't. He trusts *me*." She's a character I hope will inspire my own daughter when she hits her teenage years. I'm definitely buying a copy of this movie."

"If you like sports related films and Drama then your gonna find it in the New Film "Hometown Legend" this movie has heart and deals with losing faith...when a towm and its high school football team which has'nt had a winning season in 12 yrs lost it's faith not only in themselves but also lost faith as a team. in the long run they begin to to work together and come together as a team.

"I'm the producer of the film, and while I don't mind negative reviews, I do want to say that the uniforms were real, and the football players were real. And we did have people in the stands. Just FYI."
