One of the readers of this blog sent me this review of Courageous.
Its was great! Â Honestly, I was really surprised. Â Christian movies are
typically bad… Â Bad, acting, bad writing, bad production. Â Not the case
with courageous. Â The acting was great. Â I actually found myself emotionally
identifying and relating with the actors/characters… Â That’s the evidence
of good acting. Â The writing was amazing. Â And the storyline and charter
development was extremely well thought out. Â The production was on par with
any police drama (TV or movie) I have ever seen.
One of my favorite parts about the movie were the scenes where they
discussed spiritual matters. Â In most christian movies these dilogs come
across as being forced, cliche, and cheesy. Â This movies was wholly
different… Â The conversations were very natural and relatable. Â I felt
like it reflected the types of conversations I have in my own relationships.
The other thing I really liked about it was the development of the five
guys… Â I think that any father could relate to one of the five… Â One guy
was pretty much a great Dad. Â One guys was a pretty good dad that need to
make some improvements. Â One guy was a dead beat died who turns everything
around. Â And one guy was a dad who “let go of the wheel” but is not without
remorse and the potential of redemption.
Overall… Â I thought it was great!
