Movie review: Courageous

Courageous is a wonderful story about the importance of fathers. The movie addresses the question of “What does it mean to be a father?” This is an important question in our society today when a growing number of children are disconnected from their fathers. The movie shows us some of the harm that comes when fathers don’t take their role seriously and we’re reminded of the great strength good fathers can give their children.

The movie focuses on five men. Four of them work together in the local police department. The fifth man gets adopted by the group. We watch them as they struggle to meet life's challenges. One of them has a wakeup call which shakes him to his core. He decides to be a better father based on what the Bible teaches and asks the other four to hold him accountable. They decide to join him.

My family loves this movie. It is very well done. We watch fairly often; when it isn’t loaned out.

If you like good wholesome movies with a powerful message then give this movie a try.

Lynda - You are right. It is a great movie. I'd love to know how many fathers try harder to do a better job because of the movie.
