When young Jay Moriarity discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson to train him to survive it.
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
An action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Written by
At the start of the final game, both teams run through banners that were designed for it. The one for the eagles is easy to see, but the one for the giants isn't visible until after it's partly torn. This is because it read "Support The Giants" which they thought was really cheesy, so they decided not to show it until after it was torn enough that it couldn't be read. See more »
The shadows on the title sequence are backwards. If the letters in the name "Facing the Giants" were truly back-lit by the lights in the stadium, the shadows would be upside-down, not right-side up. See more »
this movie es completely awful as a movie. the dialogues are all bible based, same as the music, is a constant preach, cheesy as hell, unwatchable if you don't believe the Christian story, and if you are a Christian that doesn't live by the bible in every way (let's say,if you believe that dinosaurs existed). the movie is pretty bad, the acting is horrible, the dialogues are just old and new testament verses and that's makes disgusting the way to "spread the message" this movie has... in fact, this movie is, before anything else, a preach, second, a bad movie.
the only way that you can enjoy this is if you already are a belligerent Christian or if you are in desperate need for salvation.
don't be fooled by the rating, this movie is, with luck, a 4... most probably a 3, but i will give it a 1, because i really feel disgusted by it...
and sorry for my English, is not my native tongue.
