Facing The Giants movie review


Facing the Giants

From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL & Fireproof comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team and himself.

In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.

However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories.

  1. in our Parish there is someone who is ALWAYS asking “Is that approved for Catholics”… no matter what it is, a song, a discussion, movies…. is there a list of “Pre-approved” movies for Catholics out there somewhere?

    1. Hi Teresa, we are not aware of a listing of Pre approved movies for Catholics. Movie reviews are so subjective which is why we added this disclaimer post:

      “Movie reviews are always the opinion of the person writing them and does not represent the views of the Catholic Home Education Network. Please conduct your own research via some of the links below and make up your own mind.”

      This is a link to a Catholic news service which offers some reviews http://www.catholicnews.com/movies.htm

      Though some of the Christian sites listed on our above post are also very good. We always recommend using more than one source.

      If there was a “pre approved” movie on our site it would have to be The Song of Bernadette http://chenaustralia.com/2011/09/26/the-song-of-bernadette-1943/

      We hope that helps.

  2. Great movie! This was the first of the Kendrick’s brother films that I saw, and I really enjoyed it. I have now seen all of their movies, and they’re all awesome! 🙂
