The Grace Card – Movie Review

The Grace Card - Movie Review

The Grace Card — movie released on 2-25-11

Witness The Power of Forgiveness

Director David Evans’ warm-hearted, unobjectionable message movie celebrates the transformative power of Gospel values. Starring Oscar winner Louis Gossett, Jr., and newcomers Michael Joiner and Michael Higgenbottom, The Grace Card is played well.

The Grace Card Movie Theme

Mac McDonald is a miserable person. 17 years ago, his young son was hit and killed by a car. Today, his anger is still impacting both his family life and his job as a cop. His surviving son Blake is hanging out with a bad crowd and flunking out of school. His wife is seeking counseling to cope with their unhappy life. His supervisor at the police dept. is also concerned about his attitude and assigns him a partner, which Mac is not happy about.

His new partner is Sam Wright, who is a part-time pastor who would like it to be full-time. He is a cop in order to provide for his family.

It was actually disturbing to see how Mac impacts those around him: his wife, his son and his partner. Both Mac and Sam are missing something in their life; Mac has shut God out of his life for a long time, and Sam begins to doubt his calling as a pastor.

Sam relies on his faith, and guidance from his grandfather George (Louis Gossett Jr.), but it takes a tragic incident to provide the impetus for change that Mac needs in his life.

I’ve reviewed quite a few movies that emphasize forgiveness, but The Grace Card brought it to a whole new level. The ending is especially emotional, and unexpected. A must see movie for all. Watch it.

Courageous – Movie Review

Courageous Movie Review

Movie Review of Courageous (2011) 

Honor begins at home – – – This film, starring, written and directed by Alex Kendrick, is a beautifully presented as a clear call to action for men to step up and fulfill their duties as fathers and leaders of their communities and households.

Courageous Movie Theme

The story follows the lives of five friends, four of which are police officers, who are all fathers dealing with various issues in their personal lives. When tragedy befalls one of the five, it forces him to take a close look at the kind of father he has been to his children. Bothered by the fact that he only felt that he had been “good enough” by his own standards, he begins to seek out God’s standards and is heavily convicted by what he finds in God’s word as it relates to a father’s duties.

Driven by the desire to be a better father, he creates a resolution and presents it to his friends so that they will hold him accountable to be the man that he promises to become in his resolution. After reading the document the other men decide to join him in his pledge.

This action sets off a chain of events that tests the faith and resolve of all the men, while forcing them to deal with their personal issues of loss, abandonment, forgiveness, financial hardship, guilt and integrity.

Courageous Movie Trailer

Courageous is a movie that is definitely worthy of Oscar attention because it is the best movie I’ve seen all year. The story’s message is one of critical importance to our society and the acting was outstanding. And to see a movie that openly proclaims God’s Word and message of salvation through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is nothing short of a blessing.

Rust – Movie Review

Rust Movie Review

Rust, an inspirational film starring Golden Globe nominee Corbin Bernsen, was a nice surprise. A little fed up with many of the plot-poor movies of late, I found myself browsing the shelves at Blockbuster not even hoping to find anything worth watching, when I stumbled into this title.

Rust Movie Theme

Rust tells the story of James Moore, a former pastor going through a midlife crisis of faith. Unable to come to terms with his doubts, he returns to his hometown seeking answers he hopes to find at the old church where he initially felt his calling as a child.

Upon his return, James finds the place quite changed, and he learns of a local family who perished in a fire apparently set by Travis, his childhood friend and local loon. James goes to visit Travis in jail, and while he is a little surprised about his friend’s implication, he can’t but accept the man’s own rendition of what happened the fatal night of the fire.

A few days later, a disturbed local youth takes his life, and the town mourns the loss while collectively shaking its head at what could have motivated the young man to go through with such an unthinkable act. James continues to visit Travis in jail, and time after time, he becomes more and more convinced of the man’s innocence, even if Travis himself accepts his fate as it is; his memorable words at some point: “My mother is fine; I am fine. It’s all according to God’s plan – He creates the plan, we only have to play our part.”

Mindless of Travis’s acceptance of whatever plan may be at play, James begins to dig deeper to find out what truly happened. Friendship and an unquenchable thirst for justice set him on a path of discovery sometimes at odds with the will of the rest of the town, only too glad to have someone to blame for the deaths. The plot continues to evolve in a crescendo of events interesting enough to stand out, yet average enough to be credible.

The film makes many excellent points. One of them is James’s growing awareness of each person being connected to everyone else.

Rust Movie Trailer

Rust is one of those rare movies with a story so compelling that it stands out on its own, without need of explosions or foul language to capture one’s attention. Rust is heartwarming and profound; definitely a movie that can be enjoyed by the whole family, and one filled with powerful lessons that will likely stick with the viewer for a long time to come.
