At the theater I was sitting through the preview of coming attractions and applying my special ratings system for each one: that one is stupid, another ridiculous, next one raunchy, finally juvenile; wondering why all the effort goes into production and so little goes into story. Then the main attraction started.
From the first scene I knew this movie was different. It focused on story. It featured four men carrying out their duties as police officers and fathers in a small city in Georgia. The plots and subplots were carefully interwoven to produce a unified theme, crafted to inspire and entertain. It unashamedly portrayed men as men, taking responsibility and leadership in their families and in their communities.
To go even farther away from the mainstream, the film portrayed Christianity in a positive way. The Christians were not weirdos, greedy, or secret perverts. They were normal people who were living out their faith through thick and thin. The message of responsible fatherhood is told in a compelling way that will stir all but the stone hearted. I recommend that you see this film with some friends, you will be glad that you did.
