Action Packed True story

Something to watch with your pre teens, I dont think little ones will understand the concept. This is a true story about desperation and seeking God for help.

Great role models

True Grit in the Jungle

Very intense movie with emphasis on relationships, regret, male comradery and NEVER GIVE UP themes. I was glued to the screen as was my husband. I think Radcliffe deserves awards for this one. Scenery in the jungle was beautiful and frightening.....seems realistic for anyone considering hiking in the off the beaten track places.
