'facing the giants'

Released: Jan. 30 on DVD

Plot : This inspirational film follows the story of a struggling high school football team and its coach. The team has never enjoyed success, but this season the football coach has a new tactic: a strong belief in the power of God.

The verdict: I was inspired and enjoyed this film greatly. The acting was superb, and the storyline was good. You could never tell that it was produced by Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., for just $100,000.
