An unpolished gem amongst all the clutter...

Since Clark Gable uttered the first bit of profanity on the silver screen, Hollywod has been in a race to present some of the most offensive tripe imaginable, and all in the name of "art." Thus, "Facing The Giants" won no Oscars and it was panned by some reviewers who were, perhaps, a bit convicted by not only the movie itself, but also the volunteers from the Baptist Church in Albany, GA who produced this masterpiece. Yes, "masterpiece." Some of the acting is a bit stilted, perhaps, and the sets are sometimes rather simple, but the fact that this film came together in the way that it did earns it a "masterpiece" rating, alhough I'm certain that the church members would say to "Give the glory to God." Lastly, for those concerned about the "PG" rating: Supposedly, this was for "thematic events," or some such. However, "Giants" is certainly less offensive or worrisome than some of the stuff that somehow ends up with "G" ratings! (Any more, "down" is "up," "up is "down")...

it's not about how well the actors did

someone said this movie needed better actors -- just keep in mind these were all volunteers mostly members of the church that produced this movie -- they are not actors - they are just regular people that God used to deliver a message . the movie is not about how wonderful the " actors " were or how good the sound track is or how well the lighting was done -- . it is all about how God can enter into someones or a group of people and change lives and the world . for a better understanding of the production of this movie and the others "FLYWHEEL " and "FIREPROOF " be sure to watch the special features including the directors comments

At face value

If you are looking for a typical, stale sports movie, this is not for you. If you are looking for a movie that carries that scandals and dark side of sports, this is not for you. If you are looking for a good movie with an open Christian perspective, or a movie that teaches simple lessons such as to persevere through trials, this is for you. This movie never tries to sell you what it is not, only what it is. Some of the points in this movie are so perspective impacting, that they have been placed on youtube and other sites by the fanbase who what to share the experience. I have seen sites put this movie down, but those reviews almost always just focused on it being a Christian message based movie as the main reason they didn't like it. If we all took that approach, then 90% of the movies on the stands would be banned by anyone Christian. If we can have SciFi channel taken over by horror, and have every other approach sold in movies and music, what is wrong with a good story with a Christian base. After all, this story is about a Christian High School and its football teams drive for the championship. So, having a Christian message only fits with the base storyline. For me, I rate it as a good motivational movie for anyone.

An Excellent God-Glorifying Movie

This movie is absolutely wonderful for everyone who desires a movie that truly glorifies God and encourages one's faith! Very family-friendly and a great movie to watch with sports fans! Well done!

Don't Miss This One

One of the most incredible and life-changing movies I have seen. Amazing that it was made by non-professionals.
