Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: By preaching to the converted so heavy-handedly, the filmmakers fumble an opportunity to reach beyond their target demo of devout churchgoers.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: The wholesomeness of the message and the movie's cast make it feel 1950s retro.
This is a great film! It is a great movie to watch with your family.
Great movie!!! Every family in America should see it!!!
Great movie, questionable acting
Great movie, great message. Surprisingly good when you realize the actors are not professionals, but regular people. With that lense, this is a great movie with excellent points on life and success principles.
