I just watched Sherwood Pictures latest film - Courageous - with Hyacinth and Lily and I LOOOOOOVED it!!!! Released on September 30th 2011, this movie is, I am proud to announce, my new favourite movie! :D Written by Steven and Alex Kendrick, directed by Alex Kendrick, and starring Alex Kendrick (wow, he must have been super busy!!), Ken Bevel, Kevin Downes and Tony Stallings, Courageous is an inspiring story of how four ordinary men made a promise that would change their lives forever.
Flywheel was good, Facing the Giants was great, Fireproof was amazing (what is it with all the names starting with "f" haha?) but Courageous was incredible! Sherwood Pictures, an independent Christian movie company which was formed by a church in Albany, Georgia. They have come a long way over their four movies, and wow, am I glad the Lord called them to make this film!! Courageous is a fast-paced, cleverly written, morally sound film - presenting a message which needed presenting. It is 100% clean, having received the Dove Foundation's Family Approved Seal, and is thoroughly enjoyable for people of all ages.Younger children may be scared by some of the high action scenes, but that is all! It covers serious issues, yet it also has some of the funniest scenes I have seen for a long time in it!
That is all I have to say about it - I don't want to spoil any of the story line for you!! :) Highly recommended - watch it, buy it, share it with your friends and family - this is a movie everyone should see!!
