'Breaking The Press'
(Drew Waters, Farah White, et al / DVD / PG / 2011 / 20th Century Fox)
Overview: A contemporary retelling of the parable of the prodigal son set in the world of Texas high school basketball.
DVD Verdict: "It's a blessing, God want's this." A high school basketball coach (Waters) on the hot seat tries to get his son to be a team player. When he thinks he is better then the small town team he leaves to play in the big city. When life comes at him he must make a choice.
I will begin by saying, not to start an argument, my biggest problem with the Christian movie genre is that nothing ever seems to go wrong. While this movie had much more problems happening to the main characters then usual this is still unrealistic and very predictable.
This is much better then the last few Christian movies that I have seen but I haven't seen the 'Grace Card' yet - which I badly want to. While this did have more obstacles to over come then 'Facing The Giants' I would compare this to that movie. Overall, not a bad movie, but with some bouts of quite horrible acting it is a miracle that it even made its way to DVD, sorry! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs with the Special Feature of The Making of BREAKING THE PRESS Featurette.
