Great family film

This is a great family film about broken people helping each other to get better. Also , examples of how to treat each other with love and humility.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This quiet, low-key sports drama is a cut above most faith-based movies, but suffers from a split personality. The first hour plays like a character study of a disgraced Olympic athlete, and the second hour plays like a fairly typical high-school sports movie. The outcome of both storylines is pretty predictable, but there is genuine suspense and uncertainty during the championship match sequences.

The emotional tone stays pretty even throughout, contributing to the sense that nothing's explored in any very deep or meaningful way. Teens will especially enjoy the second half, with the charismatic cast of young actors coming to the forefront. A beating with bloody injuries shown and mature themes make it best for teens and up.
