mj5 Stars Out Of 5inspiring filmDecember 7, 2019mjQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was an inspiring, sports-centered movie, produced by a Christian film-maker who didn't want to make another "bible-thumper" movie. While many of the settings may be secular, the themes in this movie are Christian, especially grace, forgivess, repentance and brotherly love. You're not going to "hear" a gospel message in this movie, but you will "see" one being lived out in these players lives as they try to teach these Christan values to a selfish, spoiled rich kid who only thinks of himself. It falls short of being a great "Christian" movie because I don't believe the film-maker was aiming for that, instead, I think he wanted to point to a better way of living through these Christian values (i.e. loving your neighbor) I can see where the message could get misunderstood because this is not a theologically-based movie, but as a whole I believe the film-maker did a great job of telling a "true to life" re-enactment of a great rugby team. If you are struggling with your beliefs then maybe this film isn't for you (I don't believe we should be getting our theology from movies anyway). If you want a highly entertaining and inspiring movie to watch, then I highly recommend watching this one and then go share the good news of God's grace. This may help start the conversation.
Seamstress605 Stars Out Of 5Forever StrongMarch 12, 2019Seamstress60This boy seen what it was when he wrecked his car and hurt the girl that was with because of drinking and driving. I was glad that he was sent to juvenile prison instead of the actual prison. There were men that were leaders and they really worked with this boy. He came out of there with a better attitude.
Pen of a ready writerKansasAge: 45-54Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Christian BewareOctober 16, 2018Pen of a ready writerKansasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I LOVE sports movies because sports are the canvas that great stories are painted upon. "Forever Strong" depicts a true story with many good elements. HOWEVER, I was shocked that this movie is Dove Approved (& sold by CBD) as it contains traditional Maori dance and song, which quite honestly is akin to some sort of war dance or pagan worship. A description of thematic elements of drug & alcohol use are mentioned, as well as "disturbing images," but none of that was as troubling as these "dance" segments. I understand that this material is part of the true story, but as committed followers of Christ, we felt this was NOT the sort of entertainment that we wanted in our home. We actually prayed to cleanse our home of any evil that might have been unwittingly unleashed, and threw the DVD away.
Dianne4 Stars Out Of 5Great youth movieAugust 28, 2018DianneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Great movie - what a change love and good morals can make in a rich but deprived of those things young man. The change also brought the "depriving" of love to the adult as well.
