Sherwood has come a long way from their humble beginnings.
Courageous is about a group of men who are struggling to be good fathers and husbands in their family. Though all have many trials in different walks of life, they band together and make a pact vowing to live their lives for God and family. However, doing good is always easier said than done. The story is very complex with multiple lives involved. I can’t adequately describe much of the story because it would give away things later in the plot. I can say it is about fathers attempting to live in a way so they are not only “good” by today’s standards, but due to a tragedy, strive to become “great” men of God.
Courageous gathered a PG-13 rating. It most definitely deserves it.
It is good to see the rating system does still have some use. Instead of being rated for sexual, language, or other sinful content. The movie is rated PG-13 as it contains some intense violence, many emotional moments, and some mature themes younger kids would not understand.
Things I Liked
Also, many of the main characters are officers, so there are some highly intense fight scenes, fist fights, gun fights, etc. we see some blood, a few people get shot.
One scene shows a guy in the middle of many Huge guys kicking him while he is on the ground. There is a purpose, but is there.
If ever a movie was needed about biblical manhood, now would be the time. I believe this movie is for everyone who is approaching, or has approached an adult age. It shows What young men should strive to be, what men should be, how wives should act in times of adversity, what young women should look for in a young man. The list goes on.
No, it doesn’t have tons of special effects.
No, it isn’t Grammy winning acting.
And No, it isn’t fun to watch in the sense of entertainment.
Whoever sees this movie will start to appreciate the daunting task of being a father and a man. They will see the power of God in one’s life and what it is like without him. They will see what a true man of God should act like.
They will see a movie, that is Courageous.
