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 »
Goofs:
Crew or equipment visible: When Nathan falls off the truck while the thug crashes the truck in the tree, a stunt double is seen in the truck (wearing a green shirt/goatee) instead of the thug.See more »

Great Movie - Must see, 2 October 2011
Author: tammyblake from United States

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.
