    Great Movie! It guides us to be Courageous when called upon to do Gods will in a crisis! It inspires me to care and help people in life and death situations!

    Any caring father would love the message that is given from this movie. As a retired social worker I have seen the worst side of life, children without fathers, homeless, ex cons, violence. I bless God that I have two wonderful sons, now grown with families of their own. They are both wonderful fathers, live for the family and love their family more then anything else. This movie shows that not only are you are father for your own, but if you care about others and trust in the Lord, you will be a father to those who need you.
