Never give up in what you believe.
4 October 2003 | by (San Antonio, Texas) – See all my reviews

Can there be a movie without sex, chase scenes, mayhem and killing? This was just such a movie. A great family type movie with a moral; if you believe in something, then be willing to fight for it. I enjoyed watching this one a second time this evening, having seen it over a year ago. While some may snicker at the tale as fool hardy and unbelievable, it has a ring of truth to it. Look around and see how many times one person with determination has made a difference. History is replete with such individuals of tenacity and plain old guts. The acting was excellent by both the newcomers and the "old heads." Worth the time to view, even with your family and friends.
