Oh, how I love a wholesome family movie with a bold and meaningful message! The Kendrick Brothers have produced another influential and uplifting film!
tells the story of several police officers and the importance of their roles in their children's lives. Watching their lives unfold and the progression of their faith and responsibilities put me through a rollercoaster of emotions. There are light and comedic moments sprinkled throughout the film that provide a valuable balance to the numerous heart-pounding, heart-breaking, and heart-searing scenes.
The acting is great, and I easily connected to the main characters. They are each flawed with their own unique shortcomings. Alex Kendrick (playing Adam Mitchell) plays a key role in displaying the internal and external obstacles of fatherhood, as well as the importance of genuine faith and obedience. I especially sympathized with him and loved his example of strength, yet each of the men’s stories are instrumental.
The police chases and action scenes are intense and realistic without being foul or vulgar. The more personal scenes are thought-provoking, tender, and sweet without being cheesy or insincere. And the message is clear, firm, and biblical without being smug or preachy. Overall, this film is exciting, significant, and full of heart.
I highly recommend . It's so good! It surprised and satisfied me. (I loved the ending!)
