Trivia

Olivia says to Benjamin at one point, "Shall we accept good from God and not trouble?" This is a reference to Job chapter 2. God gives all of Job's status and health in the devil's possession. His wife tells him, "Curse God and die!" Job replies, "You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept only good from God and never trouble?" See more »

Everyone should see this movie! Outstanding!!!
13 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am SHOCKED at the negative messages on this board. This movie was incredible!! Fireproof was incredible!! Facing the Giants was incredible!! It opens up dialogue and reassured my children they are never alone and they can get through hard times without turning to alcohol or other things. Stay positive, have hope, know peace! Take your kids! My 9 and 6 yr. old loved the movie. My 6 yr. old son has already had 3 open heart surgeries, 7 heart procedures and will be facing another open heart due to a heart defect. Spend a few hours at a Children's hospital and you will see the THOUSANDS of family members affected by any terminal illness not to mention their friends at school, co-workers/friends/neighbors of their parents, relatives.

My son never cried in the movie, he wasn't afraid, he was proud to see another with a large scar, going through similar things he has, being called God's Warrior in the movie gave him the biggest smile. You never want your children to be afraid or feel alone! This movie gives people HOPE! LOVE! COMPASSION! It helps sibling relationships.

After the movie, he gave me the biggest hug and said, THIS WAS THE BEST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN! He loved it, we all did. It is not a movie of death or cancer but LIFE and what you do with it while you are here! Your choices in dealing with difficult days which everyone has. Reaching out to people, friends, neighbors, relatives, even a church.

See it and go open minded.
