It was awesome

by Rachael on 3/9/2007

This movie really moved me and it inspired me to give the glory to God in everything that I do and that nothing is impossible with God.

Great for the whole family

by Tom on 12/18/2007

I saw this movie and loved it so much - I bought 50 copies (one each for every member of my staff) as a Christmas present. What amazed me is how much the women and their young daughters loved the movie. If you enjoy movies which raise your spirit and speak to hope - no matter the circumstances = this is the movie!!

ReviewSource Variety
Review For those who felt insufficiently uplifted by "Invincible" and "Gridiron Gang," here comes "Facing the Giants," an aggressively inspirational drama about a born-again high school football coach. Financed by the congregation of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., pic was made by brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the church's media and teaching pastors, and features a cast described in press notes as "all volunteer." Technically polished but dramatically tepid, it might score in the niche market for Christian-themed entertainment...The complete lack of dramatic tension throughout "Facing the Giants" makes the thoroughly predictable pic seem much longer than it is.
