    By preaching to the converted so heavy-handedly, the filmmakers fumble an opportunity to reach beyond their target demo of devout churchgoers.

    Facing the Giants feels like an overly earnest church sketch of the type many evangelical congregations use as a teaching tool on Sunday between the worship music and pastor's message.

    Those looking for an evening's diversion will find it an amateur exercise that has the feel of a film-school project.

    The wholesomeness of the message and the movie's cast make it feel 1950s retro.

    The separation of church and cinema amounts to a long yard at most in this high school football sermon from Georgia-based Baptist pastor Alex Kendrick.

    Earnest but amateurish.

    Deseret News, Salt Lake City

    December 15, 2006

    In a season in which Invincible and Gridiron Gang already have laid claim to the title of inspirational football movie, this looks like an also-ran.

    Austin Chronicle

    Its feel-good storyline, shopworn message, and bottomless sermonizing would have played better in Sunday school than on the big screen, which is -- let's face it -- Babylon's turf.
