Trivia:
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 »

Quotes:
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:You act like you gonna miss before you even kick the ball. See, we're gonna have to change your whole kicking philosophy. Now see, you kick it wide left, or wide right, but that ain't gonna get you home. The ball has got to go through the middle.
David Childers:I know, coach.
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:No, no, no. You don't. Now what does scripture say about this? Scripture says wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction. And many that be there find it. Now to us; that's wide left, and wide right. But narrow is the gate and straight is the way that leads to life...

Finally...a movie of value!!, 15 September 2006
Author: embo_1999 from United States

I was invited to preview this movie and took my family with me. Even my youngest son, who is 4, came home reciting the message of the film. If a four year old gets it, I am thrilled to think of how many lives could be changed by going to see it. My children laughed at me because I cried like a baby. It evoked so many different emotions! It has been a long time since a movie has touched me like "Facing the Giants" did. The message was awesome and what was more amazing were the non-paid "servants" that starred in this film. This movie has the ability to make an amazing impact in this world. To God be the glory!!! I have been telling everyone to go see this movie, you will not regret it.
