Here is movie number 6 on my list of "Top 100 Movie's I Think You Should See Before You Die" Facing The Giants. This movie was made by the same production team as Fireproof and is another movie that has religion as a major "focal point."
For this review I'm actually going to borrow a review that I found on Amazon about the movie. I hope after reading these reasons to see this movie.....You will want to see it too.
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!
