Movie Review: Facing the Giants

Facing the Giants is not your average movie.  There are some things you need to know up front about this movie.

  You need to know that it was produced almost entirely by volunteers–very few paid professionals worked on this movie.  They did it out of a love for the Lord and conviction about spreading the message of this movie. 

You need to know that this movie received a PG rating.  Why?  Because it usues the name of Jesus Christ without taking it in vain.  Because this movie shows people living daily, submitted lives for Christ and the people who rate movies thought that might be offensive to some movie goers. 

You need to know that Hollywood is probably not going to give this movie any awards for its acting, writing, or special effects.  If that is what you’re looking for, I don’t want you to be disappointed.  But if you’re looking for a movie that goes beyond being safe for your kids to watch, a movie you can use as a springboard to talk to them about living for Christ in the midst of hard times, a movie that spurs you on towards more holy living…then this is the movie for you.
