Storyline

In February, 2006, young Luke Abbate accepted a ride home from a fellow student following his high-school team practice. In a severe case of irresponsible and reckless teen-age driving, and over the objections of Luke and the other young passengers, the driver lost control of the car at nearly 90 miles-per-hour, spinning off a narrow road and landing in an embankment some seventy feet below. Luke suffered irreparable brain damage, and died in the hospital two days later - just four days before his sixteenth birthday. Written by anonymous

An inspiring and uplifting true story about dealing with loss. Bad acting hurts the movie but still worth watching. I say B-
21 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"For the entire history of mankind everyone is born and everyone dies. You think we'd have learned to handle it, but we don't." After a car accident changes the lives of the Abbate family forever, older brother Jon (Merriman) has a tough time coping and want to give up playing football. After his teammate talks to him Jon decides to give it one more try. This is a true story about the tragedy of the Abbate family and the 2006 Wake Forest football team. More then a sports movie, this is more of a Christian themed film about dealing with loss. This was a good movie overall. While I enjoy a feel good type movie like this one, the big problem I had with this is that (like most Christian movies) everything seems to perfect and when the main character begins his quest there is not much that stops him. This movie is very heart-wrenching in parts, but the poor acting takes away from the emotion. Overall, this is a good movie, but the fact that everything works out a little too well and the bad acting makes this a little worse then I wanted it to be. I did like it though. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I will *Also try - Facing The Giants & The Perfect Game
