{FishFlix Movie Review:} Courageous

We're doing things a little different today! FishFlix was so gracious and offered to send me a Christian DVD to review. 

About the Movie (from FishFlix):
Courageous is an inspiring and action packed film that presents an important lesson for fathers. The storyline revolves around four police offers, each trying to juggle their demanding job and their family life. Things in the police force are intensifying, as gang activity keeps cropping up in their town. Each of the fathers handles parenthood differently, and each has their own battles to fight at home. Courageous is a wonderful fast-paced movie that teaches the important lessons of fatherhood and leadership.

My Review:
First off, my sincerest apologies to FishFlix for taking so long to get this up! Thank you for your patience.

Secondly, let's talk about Courageous. The film was created to encourage fathers to take an active role in their families' lives, something that is desperately needed in today's culture. In the movie we have five fathers; each are working through their own problems and circumstances with their families. This offered a nice broad look at some of the different kinds of families there are, as well as a different perspective from each. Unfortunately, a tragedy rocks the boat for one of these fathers and it prompts him to start taking fatherhood seriously. It's a call to action.

This movie is powerful, y'all. It's emotional, spiritual, and meaningful. But it's qualities are not limited to that, the movie packs a humorous punch as well. For all of the movie's serious moments, there are several scenes that will make your sides hurt when you laugh! The moviemakers do a fantastic job of handling real life without giving the viewer too much to swallow. While I'm sure critics would be more harsh, I think they managed the story very well.

Overall, my husband and I really enjoyed this movie together. Courageous is a great film for older teens and their parents, or couples looking for a clean action packed flick. The movie does host some rather intense moments, which may be too much for younger children. It's rated PG-13 for a reason. This is a Christian film with Christian themes and messages. :-) Another big THANK YOU to FishFlix for sending this flick our way! If you're interested in getting this movie for yourself, you can find it here -> Courageous DVD.

I received a DVD of Courageous from FishFlix in return for an honest review of my opinions, which I have done. Thanks!!
