By preaching to the converted so heavy-handedly, the filmmakers fumble an opportunity to reach beyond their target demo of devout churchgoers.

Facing the Giants feels like an overly earnest church sketch of the type many evangelical congregations use as a teaching tool on Sunday between the worship music and pastor's message.

Those looking for an evening's diversion will find it an amateur exercise that has the feel of a film-school project.

The wholesomeness of the message and the movie's cast make it feel 1950s retro.

I'm not about to argue with the message, but the delivery system sinks below the level of after-school special, and the acting matches.

The religious proselytizing in this football movie is about as subtle as a blindside hit by a 300-pound defensive end.
