Did You Know?

Trivia:
The "Death Crawl" Exercise was something they came up with themselves that to their knowledge had never been done before. It was very strenuous, not just for the person on the bottom, but also the person on top. Most of it was filmed on a very hot day- 98 degrees. The sweat dripping from Jason McLeod's face at the end was real. He said that he lost about 8-10 pounds that day and was in pain from it. Alex Kendrick and others had to keep going under tents to stay dry.See more »
Goofs:
Miscellaneous: 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 »
Quotes:
Grant Taylor:Scripture says to honor your parents, and all you do is complain.
Matt Prater:All he does is boss me around. He doesn't even try to understand me.
Grant Taylor:Matt, you can't judge your father by his actions and then judge yourself by your intentions. It doesn't work that way. You're not responsible for him. You're responsible for you. You honor God by honoring your authority.

Absolutely incredible!, 15 September 2006
Author: miked-61 from United States

This movie touched every emotion: joy, sadness, anger, confusion, peace, humor...but most of all HOPE that is found in Christ alone! People in the theater interrupted the movie with applause, MUCH laughter and most cried at some point! An incredible and exhilarating story of hope! It is incredible to realize that this first-class movie that is so well-done was birthed and produced by a church in south Georgia!! If you know someone who is struggling against the giants we face in life, or a couple who is struggling to make ends meet, or struggling to have a child, or just someone who needs to be encouraged, GET THEM TO THIS MOVIE! We need MORE movies like this! Buy some tickets and give them away...you can affect a life or a family FOREVER!!! My church has committed to buy 1,000 tickets! We are GIVING FREE tickets to every varsity football player and coach in our area! I challenge others to do the same in YOUR area. Spread the word! This film is a MUST-SEE!
