Bookended by a pair of Ronald Reagan quotes, "Last Ounce of Courage" is pure preaching-to-the-choir poppycock.

... sort of a Red Dawn for those who believe that Christmas is under assault by secular forces. It is the very first movie that comes with "The Chuck Norris Seal of Approval."

This is bigotry masquerading as leadership, thuggery claiming the banner of freedom, braggadocio pretending to be strength.

A good reminder that storytelling clichés and inattention to narrative detail can detract from a movie's message.

It's a call for the faithful to rise up if they, or any heathens who stumble in the audience, can wake from their naps or their fits of helpless unintentional laughter.

The problem with this numbskull travesty isn't that it's fatuous and smug (which it is). It's that it's slack and dull.

A Christian themed movie that needs better acting and definitely a better script.

The patriot-packaged "Last Ounce of Courage" has been made with the conviction of true zealots, but also the competence of amateurs.

It's a bait-and-switch that masquerades as inspirational drama while pushing a political agenda.

Filled with flawed ideas, subtle bigotry, and amateurish technique, Last Ounce of Courage tested my last ounce of patience.

This religious-themed drama about a small-town mayor's personal crusade against "the war on Christmas" is about as subtle as the character's name -- Bob Revere.

Politics aside, the hamfisted melodrama, amateurish acting, a tasteless finale and a cameo by either God or a ZZ Top cover-band refugee make "Last Ounce of Courage" laughably awful.

It takes the joy of Christmas and makes it bellicose. I'd rather have a black licorice candy cane, thanks.

The sheer volume of what I like to call "eyebrow acting" -- in which thespian intensity is directly proportional to the angle and depth of one's forehead furrows -- is staggering.
