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

When the thug is put into the back of the squad car with Javier, the boom mic is reflected in the car's rear window. See more »

Quotes

Pastor Hunt: I have heard many people say, who have lost a loved one, that in some ways it is like learning to live with an amputation. You do heal, but you are never the same.

Faith, Family, Fatherhood - all in one
2 October 2011 | by dmhonanSee all my reviews

This is quite simply a superb movie about faith, love, family and what is really important in life. A must for all fathers and would be fathers. The movie weaves real life adventure and problems into a compelling police-based story and delivers solutions to those problems that can be used in our lives. Sure, some of the jokes are a little corny, but they are all in good taste - a rare exception to Hollywood's sex, sex and more sex mentality. The acting is really pretty good - there's no Brad Pitt here, but there is plenty of heart and soul from the entire cast. Hard to believe a movie with this much drama, acting and pathos was created with only a one million dollar budget! It is not only entertaining and funny but didactic as well. Don't miss this one - do it for yourself - do it for God!
