Editorial Reviews

In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage.

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!

A football coach who is facing being fired and having trouble conceiving a child with his wife feels overwhelmed and turns to Christ to help him through the tough times in his life. The message of the movie is that while you can't control what happens in life, you must give it your all anyway. He decided that whether or not his team wins, whether or not he keeps his job, whether or not he can have children, he will do his best in every endeavor in his life and glorify God regardless of the outcomes.

His wife is played by a sweet and lovely actress who faces her own hardship as a woman who wants children and is having trouble conceiving. Many of the teammates have personal issues they must also overcome.

This is a great family film, very uplifting, and I'm glad I came across it.

Where can I begin? This movie is awesome. Christian or non-Christian, you can't helped but be moved by this movie. The plot, the characters, the message, everything is just great. God truly had a hand in this movie. I can't wait to get the DVD so that I can watch it over and over. My eight year old son sat and watched the movie as if he was glued to the screen. Get the movie. Watch it with your family. God will change your life. Check out Flywheel as well.

Some may say this story has been done before. There is a long history of "underdog finally triumphs" films that show how, through hard work and determination a team can work together to accomplish unsurmountable odds and come out on top. These are "feel-good" films that bolster our beliefs in the human spirit and the man-vs-man/man-vs-self struggle that is, we hope, a metaphor for our own lives. If this is the template, then on the surface, Facing the Giants falls into the mold, but that mold is quickly broken with the following lines:

Coach - "What's the purpose of this team?"

Player - "To win football games?"

Coach - "What happens next?"

Player - "We win a trophy?"

Coach - "Then what?"

Player - "People talk about us?"

Coach - "For a while, then what?"

Player - "I don't know, we go to college, then coach little league?"

The point is then driven home that football is too small of a thing to live for, which is most certainly true, but not in the minds of a teenager who perceives the future in seemingly infinite terms impacted dramatically by a winning football season. The victorious win is generally not too small of a thing for a moviegoer to experience at the end of a two-hour viewing, as evidenced by so many similar movies. The flaw in other kinds of "triumph over odds" movies is that, while they embolden the human spirit, it's a temporary victory. Also true is the fact that for every winning team, there is a losing team. While winning should be a goal, it should not be the be-all-end-all of goals. If this were the case, then what of the unmentioned losing teams whose hard work and determination are never mentioned?

Format: DVD
I just watched this movie and it brought tears to my eyes. The central theme of the movie is that with God, all things are possible. It tells the story of how a Christian school had a revival after someone had been praying for that revival for a long time, and the revival came through the school football team, and God took the team all the way to the state finals. It also tells the story of the coach and his wife's infertility and that with God, all things are possible!

It is reported that the cost of this movie is $100,000, and majority of the cast and crew were volunteers. It is also reported that it raked in $10,000,000 by 1 Jan 2007. This is truly the 100-fold increase!

Eventhough the production may not be as polished as Hollywood productions, but the values that it portrays are better than some G-rated movies and cartoons. This is a great family movie, a must watch for all Christians... truly... WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

What made the movie so good?
I think those that are critical of this movie are missing something. The main character appeared to be doing things his own way at the beginning of the movie. Things were going wrong in his life, and at that point, he responded in brokenness to God. He yielded himself to whatever God wanted. That... Read More

What is christian about tricking people into buying a putrid movie?
So what exactly didn´t you like about this movie? Because you seem very good criticizing other people´s opinions and yet you don´t give one yourself to contradict them.
