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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a must-see, but a must-OWN! March 4, 2007
By jaylake
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is not just a must-see, it is a must-own! Made by a church in Georgia, the actors are volunteers (and regular people). I appreciate the genuine Southern accents compared to the sore attempts at drawls most professional actors have when trying to act Southern. :o) If you are from the South, the characters will remind you of people that you know. It is evangelistic and well done. I hope Sherwood Baptist will produce more movies. And be sure to watch the special features!

5.0 out of 5 stars Facing the Giants Delivers the Goods and the Word February 16, 2007
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie and Very Inspirational March 3, 2007
Format:DVD
I am with everyone else in saying that this movie is a must see. It was not only inspirational but entertaining and interesting as well. I first felt like a previous reviewer stated when he said that he did not think he would be interested in the movie due to the sports content. But when I saw it, I was so glad because it was a great movie with a strong message. I was also impressed with the quality of the movie that it did not seem like one of those cheesy christian films. I don't despise those beginnings for christian films(in fact I have a few in my library)for they used what they had in their hand at the time and it still ministered, but it's good to see improvement in the quality in regard to the acting, scripts and overall production without compromising the message. Just think, all this done by a church. It's simply incredible to me that they pulled this off. It just goes to show you that there are no limitations with God when it comes to getting His work done. I definitely give this great movie two thumbs up with my 5 star rating!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie February 7, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars With God all things are possible December 2, 2006
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie with great values! May 27, 2007
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.
