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 »

Second Chance! that we all search for...First Class Drama Movie
3 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is very rare that I will give a full ten out of ten for a movie but in "Abel's Field" this is so strongly deserved.

A most excellent strong drama something that many of us will identify with the problems that we meet in life and how we cope with them from the eyes of a young guy to an older guy so different but both facing similar situations and able to give support & strength to.

The Producers have adapted the script to well, used an amazing small town in Texas called Thrall all real sets and they all add to delivering a great movie.

But the two leading actors both deliver first class roles, from the older guy Abel played by Kevin Sorbo who many will recognise from his many party to the young guy Seth, Samuel Davis one of the best upcoming young actors that I predict a great future for. Kevin Sorbo may not have a lot to say but he works so well with Samuel Davis as Seth, Samuel really is spot on with his portrayal of Seth a young guy that many will really identify with and one that you will feel for in his position in life that has come his way.

As I started we all look for a second chance so often in life, for that redemption "Abel's Field" is so strong and delivers from start to finish!
