Being a good dad

Courageous is the story of four deputy sheriffs from Albany, Georgia and a Hispanic day laborer who all agree to become better fathers after one of them loses a daughter to a drunk driver. One of them doesn't quite make it all the way, the four deputies are Ken Bevel, Alex Kendrick, Ben Davies, and Kevin Downes, the laborer is Robert Amaya.

The notion here is that fathers ought to become more actively engaged with their kids and the nuclear family is at all times paramount and preferred. Now as we well know families can be derived from a variety of sources and arrangements. This film certainly leaves out same sex couples. But as this is a Christian film we know what the stand on that is.

Some decent performances and nice location shooting are Courageous's strongest assets. But I fear this one is for church audiences only.

Cheap movie about policemen who do believe in a deity

I made the mistake of watching this movie a few years ago, and I felt I had to write this review to state that even this may be a flattering film for Christian people, but as a feature film, this is a bad one.

The filmmaking is shameful, made by a guy who seems to only have seen bad films. The story may be interesting, but the shots, the acting, the music, the editing... Everything is cheap in this film. Maybe the director was too busy directing himself instead of being in his spot watching the monitors. Definitely not a multi-task dude.

I must say I laughed a lot when the main character "dances" with(out) his daughter. It's not just a campy, tacky thing that you would do alone by yourself when no one's watching and make sure to not show it to the world - It's also they way it is actually shot.

Do yourself a favour and avoid this film. If you believe in a deity, go to the church instead and do your share of good deeds. If you like watching good films, watch others, there are a bunch of them, believe me.

I reckon the effort, but they should have got a higher budget to hire a better director, a better cast and a better crew.

I only recommend this movie if you want to know how a bad film looks like, whether it's Christian-themed or not. Nobody is going to remember this film after a few years.

Excellent Movie

This movie tells the story of four men, with divers life challenges which at some point brought them together. With the multifarious difficulties they live with, they are presented with a message to get up and become accountable, responsible and courageous fathers.

This movie quickened my understanding of what true fatherhood represent and how much of an impact the presence participation of the fathers in the lives of their children. The story was was written, decent and covers divers cultures. The simplicity with which such a broad topic was presented was so impressive. The story also describes how much fatherhood could mean to such an extent that any other things becomes, perhaps, secondary. I like the action and suspense, it keeps you at the edge of your seat. I think this was a very good work done by the Kendrick Brothers.
