Facing the Giants

Critics Consensus

The tropes of both football and evangelical movies are gracelessly on parade in this banal, insipid drama.

Movie Info

Grant Taylor, a Christian high-school football coach (Alex Kendrick), gets some very bad news. Besides his and his wife's (Shannen Fields) infertility problems, he faces the attempt of local parents to force the school to replace him. His team, the Shiloh Eagles, has never had a winning season in the six years that he has coached the boys. Following a visitor's message, Grant tries to inspire his team to use faith to conquer fear and opposing teams.

    Practically a Christian-based remake of Remember the Titans, yet still drives home a powerful message

    Predicatable plotting along with religion being shoved in our face repeatedly make this 'drama' near impossible for non-christians to enjoy.
