Should do well on the Christian circuit
10 April 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Josh McDowell Christian motivational speaker has lent out his life story and narrated this film Undaunted about his early years growing up in rural Michigan. After service in the Air Force, McDowell went to Wheaton College and became a minister. The story here is how he became a minister after overcoming a really lousy childhood, an alcoholic father, an abused mother, brothers and sisters who sound like white trash and even a farm hand who sexually abused him.

There will be no one in the cast you recognize and the film was nicely photographed in the locations and I have to say in terms of costume and sets they did manage to recreate the Fifties era quite nicely.

It's a good film of its type and should do well on the Christian circuit.
