I just preordered this movie because my family saw it in the theater and it is a cut above most movies. It is really the story of an African-American high school football player in the newly integrated South, and the powerful role that Christian faith played in the interpersonal relationships and larger social structures surrounding that explosive moment in time. The goals and aspirations we desire for racial reconciliation and a just peace in society are not going to happen with fighting and denigrating each other. This movie shows a better way, and, being a true story, a realistic option for everyone who wants to have real prosperity in their family, community, sports team, business, etc. The production quality and entertainment is second to none, and it will fill you with hope and joy. A must see!
I loved this movie. Those were some tough, terrible times, but the way Christ was received and was allowed to show His glory and Love in these players at such a time in history was magnificent. This is one I will watch again and again, like I do with my Kendrick Bros. movies. It touched my heart, made me cry, made me shout out when he ran, and made me proud to be a human being. I felt the fear, the pain, the violent times - I wanted to put myself inside the movie and stand in front of that house during that terrible scene and tell those thugs they will have to get through me first - a 5'1" petite white woman!! I will stand in front of any of my brothers and sisters in Christ any day. John 15:13.
However, I have a big problem with the actress who portrayed Tony's mother - Sherri Shepherd. To me her presence in this movie discredited Tony's mom. This movie was about finding hope and Love in the midst of such horrible hatred and to cast an actress who went all the...
This is a wonderful movie -- well acted, beautifully rendered on the screen, and relaying a tale that keeps your attention from beginning to end. Even if you are not a particularly religious person, you will enjoy this story -- based on a true one - that takes place in Birmingham in the awful early 70's when blacks and whites were at each other's throats. Young Tony Nathan wants to play football and is supremely gifted, but until a series of unexpected events occur he probably will not get the chance. This movie is right up there with "Rocky" in suspense and just plain good storytelling, with a dose of American history thrown in for good measure. Sean Astin ("Rudy, Rudy!!!") inherited his mother's genius (he is superb) and Jon Voight -- well, when did young, handsome pretty boy Jon Voight become such a marvelous, mature actor? It is such a pleasure to see a terrific movie without sex, violence, and filthy language. I recommend this for everyone, but...
