Volunteers, from the Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia, made this film. It has a strong Christian message that is told in an entertaining film. Even with the untrained talent they give believable performances, which is help by a script that you believe is coming from this characters.
The Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia made “Facing the Giants” to benefit a youth center for the church. It also does a good job of spreading the values of Christianity. For some the Christianity message may overwhelm them and come off a little too preachy. If you keep an open mind you can accept the message and the story being told.
Aside from the Christian message this is a predictable but entertaining film as well. The untrained talent pulls this film off. I think its because they are untrained that makes this film believable. You’re seeing everyday people make a film with passion that is lacking in many major blockbusters. Personal I don’t think Hollywood could have done a better job.
“Facing the Giants” is a film that everyone should see but will not appeal to everyone, for a number of reasons. The acting in this film may put off many viewers. The Christian message may put viewers as well. If you can over look the unpolished actors and the preachy Christian message you will find an entertaining film that the entire family can see.
I give it 3/5 Gs.
