What a beautiful story of the goal to be a better dad and what to look for when searching for the right partner.

Honor begins at home.
Quatre officiers intègres font de leur mieux pour exercer leur rôle de policier. Mais quand un malheur personnel frappe l'un d'eux, ils remettent en cause leurs places de pères et de maris dans leurs foyers, et décident de passer un pacte devant Dieu pour être meilleurs.
Voici un film typiquement américain qui dénote complètement du cinéma habituel local. Le début passe bien et est relativement classique, mais après 20 minutes la tournure pro-Dieu devient flagrante et plutôt exagérée. Rien d'étonnant quand on sait que le réalisateur est un pasteur dont la volonté est de faire passer la bonne parole de Dieu dans tous ses films. N'empêche, le message est positif et leur volonté d'être de bons parents est tout à fait respectable. Si on enlève la prestation de serment avec les mots Jésus Christ et Dieu tous les 5 mots (et les dérives cathos sur la société patriarcale et l'abstinence avant le mariage), le film reste appréciable. Prosélyte mais innocent.

La pelicula de la paternidad critiana contada desde el punto de vista de 4 policias de un pueblito que se enfrenan al reto de la paternidad de diferentes maneras.

Desafortunadamente la manita del director es tan pesada que el mensaje verdaderamente positivo y cristiano se siente tan forzado que es en verdad dificil de tomar

Even if it has positive themes Courageous will probably make an old man fall asleep.

Definitely a tear jerker! A bit too long and a somewhat preachy, but also a really good story with great values. Every father should watch this movie!

Courageous is a spectacular film of family and faith. Its centerpiece revolves around the role of Christian fatherhood in the home, of the man's place as the spiritual leader of his household. It's a picture of discovery, of tragedy, of faith in something greater for the betterment of oneself, one's family, and one's community. The picture espouses positive, uplifting messages that will speak to all comers, Christians or non-Christians, those seeking to reaffirm their own faith and values or those merely in search of something positive on which they may build upon and in some way incorporate into their own lives. The film is well made and looks and plays well beyond its budget. Strong acting and steady direction round Courageous into form as a fantastic, must-see movie fit for all audiences.

This movie has some script holes and it does not always flow the greatest. However, the action combined with the message make it a worthwhile movie to watch.

It's well-produced, and has some decent acting and humor, but the overbearing message will be off-putting to the non-religious.

Different/Not Bad/Kinda Liked.

definitely gotta say that I like this movie. I can't say it's for everyone though. definitely a christian movie that provides some pretty intense police action, emotional drama, some good humor, and of course, plenty of talk about being a good Christian, a good husband and father, and overall, being courageous, and being a MAN, man. If that's not really your thing, then that's okay, but I found myself to watching it and enjoying it.

I have never seen a movie that is not cheesy and does not outline the role of a man in the lives of his home. This is the best of Alex Kendricks' films. Boo on all the critics that have a problem with the responsibility that is put to the forefront in this movie. Grow a spine and watch this movie. VERY uplifting, VERY encouraging, and VERY VERY hopeful in spite of all circumstances.

This film does a great job at getting the message across about what it means to be a real father in role and not strictly in title. If anything, I only found one primary problem- each cop has a one-dimensional backstory based on their ethnicity (the popular football jock getting his cheerleader girlfriend pregnant, the Hispanic worker looking for work, the black cop not knowing who his father was, etc.).

Amazing and inspirational. May be a lower budget film but the message is clear. Men stand up and lead your families, spend time with your children and serve God!

The critics say overplotted. The critics miss the point. "Stand up for what is right". That is the point.

Just not my type of movie. I have nothing against the message, but it's not what I'm looking for when I sit down to watch a movie.
