Movie Review: Courageous (2011)

Movie summary: The movie opens with a father chasing after the thief of his car, risking his life. Then the onlookers realise that his baby was in the car. This father is a new member of the police force in a town. A few of the other members of the force are Christians and fathers. The new guys asks: where have all the good fathers gone?

The daughter of the main character passes away in a car accident and the father blames himself for not being there for her. They realise that having the lack of a role model and a fatherly figure is largely causing many problems in young people. These men make resolutions to love their family and to train them to love God and others. Pursue justice love mercy. Work diligently to provide for my family. As for me and my house, we will serve the lord.

They stick to their resolutions even if meant putting their jobs on the line, their friendship on the line.


My thoughts: Another good Christian family film by the team. I would encourage men out there to spare some time and watch this film.

Families are so important in the upbringing of a child. Being a parent takes responsibility. That's why my research looks at the roles of families in the development of substance use in young people. Preliminary results indicate that family conflict is an important and preventable risk factor for children. We also know that monitoring - knowing where your kids are is also very important.

The bible calls for the man to be spiritual head of the house, to lead his house to serve the Lord.

Where are you men of courage?
