Courageous

Christian-based drama following four law enforcement officers. Despite their effortless ability to stand up against the dangers of their civic duties, one vital duty still alludes them: fatherhood. With an ever-increasing sense of disconnect between them and their children, these four men strive to maintain God's promise to "turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers."

Courageous is the fourth release of Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Church in Albany, Georgia. Their first release since Fireproof, the No. 1 independent film of 2008, Courageous joins Facing the Giants and Flywheel in touching and impacting lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope.” (Official Synopsis)

Moviegoers devoted to faith-based fare will flock to megaplexes for Courageous, easily the most polished production so far from brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the prolific and increasingly accomplished filmmaking pastors at the Sherwood Church of Albany, Ga.

Courageous, proves a particularly clunky, tunnel-visioned vehicle whose overbearing, overlong script nearly smothers the movie's quibble-free message.

Courageous reveals the duo's growing expertise as filmmakers with its skillful blending of moving drama, subtle comedy and several impressive action sequences, including a well-staged foot chase and a harrowing shootout between the cops and bad guys.

Courageous literally preaches to the converted, delivering ham-fisted messages of responsibility to the most receptive audience possible.
