HIGH STRESS OCCUPATION? YOUNG PARENT'S? YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I can but only say that I wish something like this had came along in 1983 when I began a family of my own. I was already a nine year seasoned police officer, 6-1/2 of those with three prior agencies before finding my home. I went on to retire at 22 years and still on the job else where with a total of 38 years altogether. This movie is especially important for those in this line of work and should be required as mandated training in any L.E. agency. Perhaps it could have saved us a whole lot of grief including a child a victim of homicide in 1994 which took half of my wife with him may as well say and still on going this very day. Just may be I wouldn't be sitting here getting ready to put a postage stamp on a letter to my oldest son in the county jail right now. Of course having out law in law's who also manage to exert their interference by telephone if nothing else to this very day as well doesn't help either. In fact I would HIGHLY recommend this movie to ANYONE who has to work a full time job especially young adult's and the "children having children segment of society" just starting out. It could very well SAVE YOU and more importantly A CHILD a whole, WHOLE, lot of GREIF,GUILT,AND REGREAT. This movie resonated with me because I have been there, done that very job these actor's did an outstanding job in portraying. That blank look on their faces in the beginning of the movie I know all to well. EVRYONE becomes suspect and for those who stick with it for any length of time what's even worse battling these very type of crooks on the street is trying to figure out the crooks from with in. It doesn't take long to get really jaded. I was so fortunate though in that I managed to get a very coveted position on a motorcycle where I stayed for 21 years setting a record but still came home exhausted after jockeying a big Harley around all day in the South Texas heat 6-7 days a week at times and still getting drawn into this crap one way or another but not as often as them poor guys in those radio cars.I happened to have worked for a department of 160 sworn officer's in which the crooks dealt with in this movie was an endless every day occurrence. I've been gone for 11 years now with a much easier job still classified as a police officer and so glad I got all of that behind me. Anyone one with a high STRESS induced job NEEDS TO SEE THIS MOVIE. You won't regret it. Thanks for this opportunity.

This is well done quality movie. I believe it will give the viewer a refreshed way of looking at life...and getting you to step outside selfish ways and start to see that you have the ability to positively affect those around you. I am going through some difficult issues within my marriage right now. My wife and I watched this together. It provided a nice break from concentrating on our issues...when nothing else worked. What the movie pointed out to me, among other good insights, was that each day we have the ability to do something different, something more positive, something in a way you did NOT do the day before. The past is real, it happened, but it does not have to define you today.

I am mid-40's, believe in God, and have many flaws and dealing with an imperfect life, I love my family and my wife. I think that sentence is important to this review...give the reader a little background on me as a person. Most of the time the script and acting is of good quality. I like the fact that no major stars are in this movie. I find it refreshing to watch a movie without big stars in them...lets me focus just on the story line. There is one noteable exception....the dinner scene between a dad and daughter. I understand the INTENT, but the whole scene is just to unbelievable to me. Oh, I wish a conversation like that could take place between a dad and a daughter so quickly on the heels of the dad being firmly against a boyfriend...but it just could not happen. I felt the director tried to put too much in this film with that scene...it is the only scene that, in my opinion, should have been left out of the movie.

I hope you found this review to be helpful to you. I would encourage you to watch this movie...certainly worth 2 hours of your life.

STUPENDOUS EXPERIENCE! ENERGIZING!

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

WELL, SHERWOOD PICS HAS DONE IT AGAIN!! THIS FILM IS EXCELLENT! THEY JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER AND BETTER! EACH FILM THAT THEY HAVE MADE HAS A RECURRING THEME AND THIS ONE IS NO DIFFERENT. IT IS GOD'S MANDATE FOR THE HUSBAND AND FATHER OF THE HOUSE TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY AND SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP FOR HIS FAMILY. TOO MANY FATHERS OPT OUT OF THIS AND CONSEQUENTLY OUR FAMILY UNITS ARE NOWHERE NEAR WHAT GOD WANTS OR INTENDED THEM TO BE!AFTER SEEING THIS FILM, I (AS A MOTHER) FEEL THAT I CAN DO MORE TO HELP AND GUIDE MY CHILDREN (EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GROWN). WE(FATHERS AND MOTHERS BOTH) NEED TO PUT MORE TIME INTO MAKING OUR FAMILIES COMPLETE UNITS. WE HAVE, FOR TOO LONG, DONE WHAT MAKES US (AS A PERSON) FEEL GOOD AND NOT WHAT WOULD BE BEST FOR OUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND COUNTRY. IT'S TIME FOR LESS OF SELF AND MORE FOR OTHERS. WE NEED TO START THINKING OF WHAT WE CAN DO FOR THOSE AROUND US INSTEAD OF FOR OURSELVES. I WOULD THINK THAT THIS FILM IS A MUST-SEE FOR ANYONE WHO WOULD WANT A FUNCTIONAL FAMILY UNIT.

Want a life without regret? This movie will give you answers.

Every young man would be wise to watch this movie. Today's "reality" shows encourage young men to remain or become nothing more than large, undisciplined, childish boys. Courageous shows what it is like to be a MAN - one who is not ashamed to look in the mirror; one who knows from where his real strength comes. By the time men become fathers too many have made mistakes they wish they could undo. I would encourage teenagers to watch it so that they would be challenged to avoid mistakes instead of spending a life filled with regret.
