A great feel good movie. I have always loved football movies but this one is my favorite. It has a great story and message that can appeal to people of all walks of life. You will cheer, laugh, cry and above all learn that nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself.
This is a Christian message driven film. My choosing it was more interest in the football aspect.
I have no qualm about the intent, but the weight of delivery here isn't gentle.
Predisposition to method and the message, will likely help enjoyment.
Likeable folk, finding comfort and fulfillment. Fair enough!
outstanding movie. This is the second movie of Kendrick's brothers. It is a must see for the whole family.
Great movie with a powerful message. Interesting, keeps your attention (particularly for sports fans), and funny at times. We all loved it!!!
This is the independent film, made by a church using one camera, that succeeded anyway. What's "Facing the Giants"? It's about football and life. A failing coach, inspired to continue, changes course and decides that maybe winning football games isn't enough. They choose to play for the God, instead. A fine family film. Rated PG, likely for its theme of infertiity. If you don't watch football or even like football, you may still like this movie. Languages are English, Spanish, Portuguese, Thai, and and French. Subtitles in all those languages, plus Chinese.
Alway Remember: Never Give Up, Never Back Down, Never given up, Never Lose Faith for all things are possible with G-d!
Inspirational Family Film
This is a great movie! Will make you laugh, cry and everything in between. Loved it!
People of all ages can enjoy this movie- its definitely not jut for football fans.
Good – Facing the Giants (2006) 111 min. Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "For human beings this is impossible, but for God, all things are possible." This is another of Alex Kendrick’s Christian-based films. The others are Flywheel (2003) and Fireproof (2008). The message comes loud and clear in this very family-friendly film about a high school football coach’s life disappointments and how he tackles each one. The message is simple: if one’s focus is to serve God and only God, life is so much more meaningful (whether one fails or succeeds). In fact, failures are much more bearable when one submits to God’s love. The film explores how Coach Taylor (played by the director himself, Alex Kendrick) transforms himself and his team from focusing on themselves to focusing on Christ Jesus. Well-intentioned film and much better acted than the follow-up Fireproof (2008).
