However, the tragedy that ensues on a cruel battlefield will change everyone's life forever: Tom Revere is laid to rest, paying the ultimate price for freedom.

Bob, who is both a pharmacist and the mayor of Mount Columbus, realizes that some of the freedoms his son fought and died for are eroding.

Trivia

In 2012, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee took part in a telemarketing campaign that involved making over four million robocalls to promote the film. This was considered to be a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, as it was in the guise of a political survey, and a class-action lawsuit was later filed. Originally, it was ultimately dismissed in 2014, but in 2015, that decision was overturned by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the lawsuit was able to proceed. In 2017, U.S. District Court Judge E. Richard Webber ordered AIC Communications, the company involved with the campaign on behalf of Veritas Entertainment, to pay the sum of $32,424,930 in damages.

Christian Persecution Fantasy
4 February 2016 | by gunslinger19See all my reviews

I know lots of Christians and they really don't seem this dumb or confused about how logic or the world works. This movie is insulting not just to all other beliefs and non-beliefs but it is insulting to Christians by painting them all as drooling morons who don't understand how laws, lawyers, wars, teenagers, plays, politics, or the government works. Fine it is a movie and it isn't suppose to represent reality but if that is the case this movie has the exact same amount of truth and facts in it as Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles, but it is somehow less entertaining than any of those movies. The movie actually probably deserves 1 star, but in this case I am rewarding this movie for its production value being better than the average Christian movie. Some of the acting was competent and the cinematography seems competent. Now if the Christians can find someone that can write a decent story they may make a movie that will appeal to people that don't even believe in the magical sky daddy.
