Plot Summary

In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage.

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. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – William Lobdell, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

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. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The wholesomeness of the message and the movie's cast make it feel 1950s retro. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, May 13, 2009

Great movie!!! Every family in America should see it!!!


This is a great film! It is a great movie to watch with your family.

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.
