Courageous - my review!
First of all, it's GREAT to see a movie that has no sex or violence or foul words, but even more than that, a movie that has a great theme, a moral, and talks freely about God and the Bible. All in all, I thought the movie was pretty good. It kept my attention, had great drama and action. Hey, I even cried!! On the down side, the acting wasn't superb and the plot seemed to wane in the beginning. But I could set that all aside due to the fabulous theme of Fathers stepping up to be Leaders, the Protectors, the Instructors, the Providers, and the Spiritual Guides of their wives and children!! We see so little of that in this culture. I, for, one grew up without a Dad so I understand first hand the horrible effect that can have on a child's sense of belonging and value.
The Movie is an appeal to Fathers to step Up! To not be ashamed to be Men of God. To be courageous enough to take a stand against this culture and say I am a man of God. I will be faithful to my wife and cherish her! I will spend time with my kids and instruct them with Biblical principles! If even half the Christian men in this country would do this, we could change the next generation and quite possibly save our country from its present course!
So, I highly recommend you grab your neighbors and friends and go see this movie. I truly believe that those men who open their hearts to its message will be forever changed and will leave a legacy of honor and integrity after they die.
