Goofs

After Seth evaluates Netty's Chevelle, he tells him, while holding the radiator hose, that his transmission is shot and then proceeds to tell him that to fix it, a used block will cost him around $800 or $900. When mechanics refer to the "block" they are referring to the engine. The engine and transmission are completely separate. See more »

Evangelizing kept to a minimum
22 May 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

With overt evangelizing kept to a minimum Abel's Field is not too bad of a family film produced under Christian auspices. Kevin Sorbo has the title role in the film playing a janitor and an unlikely role as mentor to young Samuel Davis. Davis is all of 17 years old and the unlikely guardian of his two 7 year old twin sisters.

Working 2 jobs and then three courtesy of the football team and their idiot coach Davis becomes an assistant to Sorbo as they fix up the sprinkler system for the center of the town, the high school football field. All over the bible belt high school sports, most of all football is the other religion these people follow.

I was actually pleasantly surprised that a film marketed for this area could portray high school sports so negatively.

Sorbo and Davis have some nice scenes together. Abel's Field is good family entertainment.
