    Synopsis


    Facing the Giants
    A failing high-school football coach finds that in order to succeed he must convince his team that there's more to sports than fame and glory in an inspirational tale of courage on the gridiron and the power of God's word. Grant Taylor (Alex Kendrick) has been coaching the Shiloh Eagles for six years, and he has yet to realize his dream of a winning season. When the team's star player transfers schools, the first three games of the new season show no promise for improvement, troubles at home begin to take their toll, and a plot among the player's fathers to have him fired finds his future in football looking bleak, Coach Taylor is faced with the prospect of either cutting his losses and admitting defeat or turning his life over to God in an attempt to test the true power of faith. With his job on the line and nothing left to lose, Coach Taylor convinces his determined team of underdogs that there's nothing they can't accomplish with a little faith -- including the miracle of a winning season when all hope seems lost. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I can watch this movie over and over and never get tired of it. When I first seen this movie on TV I was at a point in my life like this story is to a point. So it really hit home, and in fact since my life has taken a different turn this movie has really helped me make it through some of the tough times I am having. My mom watched it just after I purchased this and she loved it. When you think of a religious movie you think of preaching, or other items but this movie is more about life lessons or people in these daily situations and teaches you how to turn to your faith. I have recommended this movie to several people and now awaiting for them to watch and give me feedback.

      This is one of the most or better yet the BEST movie i have seen in years, The main focus to me is no matter what you face dont give up or quit keep pursuing towards the VICTORY. I have Seven Grandchildren and each one will view this movie and be Blessed, Encouraged, and Challenged to Face their own Giants and be Victorious. The first Grandson a Senior in High School and on the Football team, thought it was excellent, needless to say quite approate as in Football there are Giants all around. I really do hope they make more movies like this and that we will get back to more reality and less non meaning hollywood junk. Thank you Best Buy you "Rock in every area"

      This is one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time! It's full of faith and hope and I loved every second of it (even the bloopers and goofs in the extras was funny and great!)! It also portrayed a wonderfully healthy, respectful, God centered marriage for the main character as well. You are drawn into the story right way, and even though they had a small budget, you absolutely don't notice it at all. We need more movies like this one!!!!!! Even made my husband shed a few tears at the end...that's talent!

      If I could rate this movie a 10, I would. It's better than OUTSTANDING! It clearly sends the message of what the movies about, Honor God in all things, under all circumstances. This movie does Honor God! I watched this movie on TV and I was so moved by it that my wife went to Best Buy when she got home from work and purchased it for me. I got to see it again when she got home with the DVD and she felt the same as me. This movie is clearly, Glory To God movie! Rating **********

      A straight story of a coach with misdirected goals getting his personal direction straight so he can lead his football team correctly. This has a positive effect on not only the team but the whole school and the Lord blesses him, the team and the school for this. We watch this over and over again!! Good for the whole family.

      The movie is inspirational and the storyline is awesome! You don't have to be religious to watch it because even though it is Faith based it relates to how everyone should treat each other. Its about working hard to get what you want or need. The Kendrick brothers do it again!

      The moral of this true story is perfect, that no matter what happens God is there for you and that NOTHING is impossible without God!!!!! Oh, also love hearing Third Day's music throughout the movie.
