This film strikes at the heart of America's growing decline but if also gives us hope. (by Shane-468)
This film's message is true and is a real glimpse of the country we have made for ourselves and our children in these trying times which we find ourselves in . I wish Kevin and Darrell good providence with this film...This film's subjected matter is one that should be taken very seriously or all our families memories of the Christmas we grow up with will be just that. Just faded memories.While these low budget films are not the next super hero powerhouse that we have all come to know and love for their massive FX and Budget, The meaning and what we take away from a film with real <more>
content and heart is here in this film in abundance. It's got heart and its got truth...
My wife and I took our two teenage grandchildren to see this new movie "Last Ounce of Courage" tonight, I can't speak highly enough about this movie and suggest that everyone from adolescents through adults go and see this moving and inspiring movie.It took me back to when movies actually made you think and feel and did not just entertain you with action scenes. It's about freedom, family, faith and values. Those same things that built this country into the great nation that it once was and can be again. The film addresses the concerns that many of us have about the way our <more>
individual freedoms are being taken away from us ever so slowly until one day we will wake up and find them all gone. It is a must see!!!
This movie shows every American why they ARE American. Anyone who has anything to say negative about this movie is the Biggest Problem With Our Country. The very ones who want to suppress our freedoms, from which this country was founded. We are losing our freedoms, the very essence that has made our country the place for so many to want to come to and "make it." America was built on the freedoms for all to have the opportunity to become what they want and the freedoms for all to not be suppressed by their Government. Our country is losing this essence and will become just like all <more>
other socialistic countries if continues on the same path. If you are a True American Citizen and Love Your Country, then go see this movie. All others, go vote Obama and God help us all.
Our family was given the amazing opportunity to be at one of the premieres of The Last Ounce of Courage. I found the movie to be more than something to consider - but a call to action regarding the civil liberties that are being challenged and that have been lost in the tireless assault of political correctness and the perceived "need" to not offend.I did not find the movie to be heavy-handed in national or religious sentiment but these are certainly a thread through the movie courage, character and conviction are the core elements of the filmmakers . We learned at the premiere <more>
that this is the second largest opening of an independent film behind Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ .Our family has recently learned that as private citizens it impossible to violate the Constitution of the United States - the Constitution serves as boundaries of all government officials - a rare protection of citizenry of a country. The truth is the United States IS different than other countries in the world. This is not something to take for granted or to apologize for.This movie calls to action its citizenry, taking into account the cost for that freedom as well as the price of not doing anything. I am hopeful that you enjoy the movie and are moved - as my family is - to not only learn of our rights but our responsibilities as a US citizen.
This movie is a must see if you believe in the American Way! (by nannameff)
Hubby, Mom & I went Friday night. I am anxious for the video release so we can watch it again and share it with others!EVERY HOMESCHOOL FAMILY SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE! EVERY VETERAN SHOULD SEETHIS MOVIE! though some scenes may be especially difficult for our combat vets, like my husband EVERY FAMILY OF VETERANS SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE! EVERY PERSON WHO LOVES America SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE! EVERYONE WHO LOVES FREEDOM SHOULD SEE THIS MOVIE!This is not about super-cinematography or Oscars. I am no judge on that, since I judge a movie strictly by its content. It's about our freedom, our <more>
country, and what is happening while we try to deny anything is wrong! IT IS TIME TO WAKE UP AND STAND UP!
Outstanding Representation of Majority in this Country (by captwampler)
Wake up America. Our FREEDOMS are eroding right before our very eyes and the lame-stream media is NOT there to tell us the truth. Only to spoon feed us the canned propaganda of the government machine... the monster that we have allowed it to become.I do not even recognize the country that I risked my life for in the service of this country 40 years ago.If you have read the reviews of actual viewers and those of "professional" movie critics, you can see where the problem lies within this country. You see, the problem with the main stream press is that they are the product of the <more>
liberal indoctrination of academia. It has no soul.It is a shame that jurists portend that the Constitution protects us not "of religion" as intended, but rather from religion. There is not a small in town in America that, in putting up a nativity scene has refused those of another faith from putting up their religious symbol s . Yet it is those of another faith who are the complainants. Are the tenants of religion so far apart? Except for whomever "brought the message of God," does not God wish us all to follow a path of righteousness?A late 2009 online Harris poll of 2,303 U.S. adults 18 and older found that "82% of adult Americans believe in God", the same number as in two earlier polls in 2005 and 2007. Another 9% said they did not believe in God, and 9% said that they were not sure. It further concluded, "Large majorities also believe in miracles 76% , heaven 75% , that Jesus is God or the Son of God 73% , in angels 72% , the survival of the soul after death 71% , and in the resurrection of Jesus 70% . Less than half 45% of adults believe in Darwin's theory of evolution but this is more than the 40% who believe in creationism.In closing, I saw this movie today with about 60 other patrons. During the rolling of the end credits, you would hear a pin drop... no one got up to leave. At the end of the credits, the entire audience stood and applauded. Walking out, strangers commented to one another what they just witnessed.A thirty minute drive home and the time to write this review, and I still have butterflies in my stomach. How rare in this society of "entertain me" and instant gratification that a movie reaches inside you, grabs you by the spine and makes you think!An absolutely MUST SEE movie... if you have an open mind.
I learned of this movie while watching Monday Night Raw. As an avid follower of all things out-there, I had no problem picking up on its heavily veiled intentions. When I looked it up online and saw the full trailer, I felt like I had struck ideological gold. Add the presence of Fred Williamson, introduced as The Hammer, no less, and I had all the motivation I needed to order a ticket for a Patriot Day screening. The movie is a lot of fun, for reasons both intentional and unintentional. Some of the things that got me laughing were all the images conflating religion and patriotism, <more>
particularly the American flag with the cross on the top on the back of Bob Revere's motorcycle. There's some pretty hilariously poor CG involving exploding Christmas bulbs. Occasionally there are odd establishing/transition shots that are held way too briefly. I particularly enjoyed the David Barton moment of awkwardly identifying the son's bible to be a Gideon Bible. The broadly drawn stereotypes of the tyrannical liberal lawyer and flaming gay theater director were amusing, and I loved the absurd nightmare world they construct with the Winter Odyssey play, and would have loved to see more of that.My strongest criticism of the movie is that it didn't go far enough. There's too much disconnect between the world of the school, which is a hyper liberal alternate universe in which children in a conservative town are completely unfamiliar with the Nativity story, and the rest of the town. Kind of like the Apocalypse series from the Lalondes, there's a certain inability to see their ideas through to their necessary magnitude in a manner that's truly believable. The moments that are blissfully irreverent, such as the alien play, stand out too starkly against the rest of the milieu. I'm still waiting to see one of these movies understand that they're essentially working with a comic book concept and truly build a consistent fantasy world in which all of their worst fears are projected and then overcame. This is far from a poor effort, and I hope it performs well enough that there might be more films to follow in its wake.In a curious bit of trivia, when I was reading the credits I noticed the name of Gen Fukunaga. As a massive fan of the Dragon Ball franchise, that's a name I'm very familiar with. Who knew that all the money we've given to them over the years would yield such unusual fruit. I look forward to a new faith friendly DBZ in which the trials of Goku and company are presented within the framework of spiritual warfare and Vegeta does not seek to destroy the Earth but rather prevent people from reading the King James Bible.
Strong message about current issues (by amypeter-4)
This movie has it's finger on the pulse of many issues facing America today. It dealt with death and the way a family can choose not to deal with emotions which then continues to cause additional pain and hurt in other ways. There are many who are not willing to "see" the freedom that once made our country strong is becoming corrupt. By stuffing anything religious shows that our "freedom" has serious boundary issues that are often lopsided. Unfortunately, the boundaries have gone so far that things that are allowed and are damaging which are seen as freedom of speech, <more>
but other things such as Christmas symbols are considered unlawful...this movie brings this painful reality to the screen. There were times during the movie where acting wasn't as realistic as a 10 out of 10 movie, but the multiple themes and positive message made this a great family movie! Sometimes people can be overly critical of the small stuff that they miss out on the big picture...don't allow yourself to do that when you go to see this! This can bring about meaningful discussions within your family and circle of friends if you talk about the forgiveness issues, pain, and unjustified restrictions now facing many in our country today. Some movies can be good to watch and you just walk away from them. This movie can bring about change in people's lives and leave an imprint that is powerful on your memory. I will be recommending this movie to MANY people as it brings a renewed sense of Pride for America and families. I hope it will bring some positive changes on personal, family, local, and national levels as well!
Reality of what we're facing, like it or not (by coastdaze)
Talk about timely...folks, if you don't think this is really what's happening to our country, you need to get your head out of the sand. This movie really hits the nail on the head and gives us a glimpse of what many families have faced. There are poignant moments and shocking moments...and for me and my pal, tears. I did not know a lot about this movie before seeing it today; it was quite different than what I expected. I was inspired by the theme and spurred on do more than sit and watch my country change into something I don't recognize. The acting was not academy award caliber <more>
in my opinion, but it was good enough to keep my attention and get the message across. Jennifer O'Neill did the best job, I believe as the "mom" character. The photography was good for this type of movie and was not a distraction. For me, everything "fit" and this story of a town where the people stand for freedom is timely and important. Any naysayers can go eat worms because if you listen to the whole message you'll see how we've been asleep too long. Time to wake up and smell the freedom! I'd say go see it and take your kids.
