Why “Courageous” is a great movie for everyone (not just Christians)

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews


This movie review is a bit biased (for reasons you'll see when you watch.)

However, Courageous (2011) is still a compelling, well-crafted film by the Kendrick Brothers, whose unique approach to moviemaking is diametrically opposed to the one Hollywood uses to decide which projects to back.

The movie's overarching theme is fatherhood, but even though this is a Christian film, it isn't preachy. The Kendricks understand that "theme" isn't the same as "story," and that movies aren't Bible devotionals. That's one of the reason their series is so successful — in fact, the total gross of Courageous (over US$50 million) compares favourably to that of this year's big secular "indie" movie, Three Billboards... (US$75 million.)

Ben was only talking US gross:

“in fact, the total gross of Courageous (over US$50 million)”

But since you mention it, there is no international numbers as it didn’t play anywhere else according to Box Office Mojo, so the grand worldwide total is:


Are you ever right about anything?

James go cry about Peter Rabbit like your peers.

James Hollywood is a shitpool of scum and they do not make many good movies anymore. Why do you kiss their ass so much?

James go lie about Rob Ford like a good stooge lefty. Now go lie about Trump like a good butthurt lefty.

James learn the difference between domestic and total liar.
