Great message - a little heavy on the religious end

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

The ones who believe in Christ will love it. The ones who believe in themselves or something else will mock it but there are so many good lessons in this film on how to be a man, a father, a leader and an example. It takes a lot of courage to do the right thing.

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.

From the same ppl who made fireproof, one of the best Christian films I've come across. That one liner: where are you men of courage?
August 24, 2014
It's well-produced, and has some decent acting and humor, but the overbearing message will be off-putting to the non-religious.

Fantastic film every father should watch.

Horrible preach to the choir and so ridiculous in its police scenes. Did they think that just because they mass the main characters were officers, that we would associate that with real men?
Embarrassing to police and believers in Christ

Simplesmente gospel.
Simplesmente Descartável.

A movie every family should see.

Courageous calls upon fathers to step up and take the responsibility for the spiritual

leadership in the family. Families are failing without fathers in their intended role.
