A very predictable Christian movie with bad acting but a good message. Not bad, but nothing to rush and see. I say C
17 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

"It's a blessing, God want's this." A high school basketball coach (Waters) on the hot seat tries to get his son to be a team player. When he thinks he is better then the small town team he leaves to play in the big city. When life comes at him he must make a choice. I will begin by saying, not to start an argument, my biggest problem with the Christian movie genre is that nothing ever seems to go wrong. While this movie had much more problems happening to the main characters then usual this is still unrealistic and very predictable. This is much better then the last few Christian movies that I have seen but I haven't seen the "Grace Card" yet. While this did have more obstacles to over come then "Facing The Giants" I would compare this to that movie. Overall, not a bad movie, horrible acting. I have seen worse though. I give it a C.

Would I watch again? - No I won't.

*Also try - 5th Quarter & Facing The Giants
