This movie is a travesty
14 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thise movie is an insult to anyone living with a spinal cord injury. To say that Dennis Byrd is walking because of God is a joke. Dennis Byrd had an INCOMPLETE spinal cord injury, meaning that his spinal cord was NOT completely damaged. Saying that he walked again because of his faith in God is a joke. This movie is a piece of religious propaganda and has no redeeming qualities.

Almost anyone with an incomplete spinal cord injury will have a partial to complete recovery. Dennis Byrd did not even have a complete recovery. Guess he didn't have quite enough faith, did he? He has said that he still has paralysis and chronic pain in his hands and arms.
