This is a Christian propaganda movie...you should at least know that
7 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I love sport movies and therefore i was looking forward to that movie, that i didn't hear anything about. Well, i don't wanna summarize too much, i just wanted to tell you, that you get the message pretty soon: Believe in Jesus and you can achieve anything. Well...nice to know, but do i need to get that message in every minute of that movie? What the fu** is the "jesusrevolution" that gets the fattest credit I've ever seen? Do i really need i character that says:"this city is a wonder, so much, i want to get baptized". I mean really? That direct in your face? For me this is bad writing.

However, i'm Christian myself, but i really do hate that assimilation thing some religions do.

The movie gets one point for the main character, one for some nice sport sequences (although they in fact repeat themselves over and over again) and a third point for being a sport movie.

Anyone not living in the bible belt or having a radical Christian attitude should be warned, it is really a pathetic piece of propaganda.
