Trivia

The Tazer gun used in the arrest was real. It wasn't fully charged so it wouldn't hurt anyone, but while filming, it actually recoiled and shocked Shane Fuller (Kevin Downes), not the gangster. He then fell down and cut his hand on a brick. See more »

The worksite where Javier went to for the new job is the same construction site that he was fired from. See more »

Great Movie - Must see
2 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie was excellent and far surpassed my expectations. There is a definite message to it but it does not feel like a lecture. There is lots of action and lots of emotion. Everyone in the theater was both laughing and crying throughout the movie. The movie was well written and well acted. The movie addressed difficult relevant social issues without being judgmental. The role of fathers in today's society and how many fathers do not live up to their responsibilities was the main theme of the movie. Although this is a Christian movie there is lots of action and does not come across as preachy. Recommend seeing it regardless of your faith and beliefs in God.
