    No it doesn’t. Those are the average reader reviews.

    You’re right Dane. And I have no interest in seeing the movie. BUT – check out Rotten Tomatoes. At the moment it has a Fresh rating of 63%. That’s very impressive for this kind of film.

    Thanks The Dane. Fixed.

    Man, having seen Facing the Giants, I have a hard time believing this movie is any good. I suppose I should be hoping all things.

    Yeah, I just helped host a seminar for teens called How to Watch Movies and the speaker showed clips from Facing the Giants (among a trillion other things) and it looked so very very bad. He said it was leagues better than the company’s prior effort (which I find hard to believe).

    If reading the producers’ synopsis hadn’t already made me think that Fireproof was just going to be straight-up dreadful, watching the climactic scenes fromFtG certainly did.

    Amazing. Where is the liberal bias we’ve grown accustomed to? :)

    Alan, I was bored out of my mind for the first 15 minutes of Facing the Giants, but you must admit, it got much better towards the end. Sure, it’s a Disney style movie, but it packed quite a punch for such a low budget.
