Chariots of Fire meets The Karate Kid in this coming-of-age story about Jonas "Jobe" O'Brien (Alex Fechine), a quiet 16-year-old struggling to reach his full potential in his running career and his character. After the death of his mother, Jobe faces considerable odds both at home with his alcoholic father and at his new school, where the popular jock Damon (Jack Matthews) is threatened by his presence.
As Jobe begins to draw the affection of Damon's girlfriend, Grace (Laura Benson), Damon takes their rivalry to a new level, threatening to destroy Jobe's reputation, his track career, and even his faith. Featuring the song "Blue Sky" by Christian singer and songwriter Melissa Otto, 1500 Steps is a powerful drama about surrendering to God and embracing His will in our lives. Approx. 95 minutes.

We totally enjoyed this movie. I was not sure about it when I ordered it but it was much better than I expected.
Ann W1 Stars Out Of 51500 stepsDecember 23, 2016Ann WQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Overall, this movie was probably one of the worst I have ever seen...It was extremely disappointing. Not sure why it would be sold on a Christian website, as I could not spot any Christian values, and God was only mentioned one time in the whole movie. The actors/characters also didn't portray good examples of godly stewards.
My first impression was that the music was overpoweringly loud, and seemed to be inappropriate for the scene. I thought it would die away, but no, through the whole movie, the soundtrack was not only bad, but completely overwhelmed the dialogue, making the words even harder to understand (the actor's words were already difficult to comprehend).
The storyline was weak and I didn't understand how/why the father suddenly just changed his actions, and the transitions were rocky. No clear theme throughout, and quite a lot of scenes seemed unnecessary and not connected. The characters were flimsy and fluctuating, not likable at all. The acting was also a bit off...I couldn't see much genuine emotion. A story supposed to be centered around the transformation of the main character, but I didn't spot any visible change.
The only message I got was never to attend public school in Australia. I wouldn't recommend it for younger children as there were some drug use, "blind" romance and fighting scenes. I rarely say this, but it was a waste of my 1.5 hours. And, I'm still not sure why this movie is called "1500 steps."

I would not recommend the movie for younger children as two of the main characters kissed on a first date like they were married and then the movie alluded to them going further. The story line is fine, but I didn't find much "Christian" in the movie. (It would have been much better if you could have understood everything the actors said.)
