As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.

While they consistently give their best on the job, "good enough" seems to be all they can muster as dads. They quickly discover that their standard is missing the mark. When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a new found urgency help these dads draw closer to God...and to their children?

Filled with action-packed police drama, Courageous is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moving-making ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the type of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.

DVD Features:

  • Commentary with the Kendrick Brothers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Outrageous: Outtakes and Bloopers
  • Courageous in 60 Seconds
  • The Making of Courageous
  • The Heart of Courageous
  • The Story Of My Father

True and Spot-On by AnnieO on 9/6/13
Rating

I had been in civilian law enforcement for 10 years and military for another 10 years - combined 20 year experience. I have not seen a more true or spot-on movie about personal ethics and faith combined before this movie.....it hit the right topics and attitudes about policing and being a family leader and keeping ethics with faith/morality a focus. How I wish this movie could be played as a requirement for every police academy class in the nation and world! It sure would help those who become police officers and who need to see how to remain humble and responsible and not turn their family and their cohorts into victims. Thank you for making it so perfectly! I will pass it on to my students as a police ethics video.

This is the Kendricks best film yet!!! It is wonderful in the action department, the opening scene is one you would expect from big money films. The message is very strong and challenging. It is very uplifting, you feel encouraged after watching it. It showed the consequences of compromised lifestyle but the forgiveness of sin.

This movie showed strength, faith, and healing. This movie started off with determination of a father risking his life for his child and others discovering their faith as a father and time to think of mistakes and make it right.

It is a movie that must be seen and appreciated.

It is a great movie. by foxxy on 5/18/12

This movie makes you think how we should treat everyone. We don't take the time to love each other and our kids, and others. It also tells us that we should be liable to what we do and choices that we make.

A God directed movie for Father's! by Kimberly Sue on 5/16/12
Rating

What an awesome God directed movie for fathers and families to see! This is how God intended for fathers to be. To stand up and be a Man of God in their family. To love, support and show how to follow God with all their heart, mind and soul. It's a tough and challenging responsibitlity a man has to lead his family. This a must see movie for the whole family to watch. Our 9 year son watched this movie with us. I wanted him to see and understand the responsibility he will have someday when the time comes to lead his family to follow God. If the children don't see the example in the home as they grow up then where will they learn it? Thank you so much to all inviolved in producing this movie to help inspire and encourage us all, not just for men but for us women as well! Check out the Resolution for men and women and the great Bible study available too.

I would recommend this movie for ALL to see. by Jessica on 5/7/12

I watched this movie with my family and I must say that it moved all of us. Very inspiring and I would recommend all to see, young and old, man or woman, religious or not. Growing up in an "inner-city" we know of many who can relate to such a movie.

So I finally got to watch Courageous last night. I admit I have my faults but this movie makes me relieve just how many I have. I have a lot to learn and things to change. But with the grace of God and the love and support of my family I will achieve. Going to a dads only camp next weekend, so excited about that. I Love my wife and my daughters

Awesome A Must Have by Man of God on 3/27/12
Rating

Just when you thought that you were the father that you needed to be, here is this movie putting you to shame in a positive way. All the small things that we take for granted. Hold true to the things that your kids ask, and when they want you to do something rather it is simple to you or not, just do it you never know how important it is to them.

Just what our country needs. by Volleypopas on 3/4/12
Rating

This movie is fantastic. It addresses the overriding issue our country is facing: deteriorating families. Most of all, the deterioration of the head of the home--the father. This movie defines what characteristics a true family should have and what happens when those values are not present. Absolutely loved it!

A movie that every parent should watch! by Jennifer on 2/25/12
Rating

All parents should watch this movie. It gives reflection to our roles as parents and tells us of our impact as a family leader. This was one of the most meaningful movies my husband and I ever watched. More people should take notice of their responsibilities as a parent. The world would be a much better place if parents took active roles in responsibilities.

AMAZING!!! by Val on 2/16/12
Rating

My family and I watched this movie together, and it was truely amazing. It motivated us to change the way we view the everyday little things. Each conversation, each second of everyday matters, especially when there are kids watching. It encouraged us to make changes, to stand and become the people God called us to be. We are all called to stand and be courageous, be excellent, be examples, we are not called to be okay, or just good. "God help us all to stand and be the leaders and examples You have called us to be"

A must see for all Men by Eric-Lee on 2/12/12
Rating

As a Husband and Father I always thought I was doing all the right things, going to work to provide,going to church 2 days a week,telling my wife that I love her and just doing the things a man is suppose to do. But after watching this movie I relized that I have a long way to go before I am the husband and father that our GOD wants me to be. So I plan to do my own resoultion. I think ALL Men should see this Movie and start living the lessons on learning what it is to REALLY be a MAN

Outstanding doesn't come close! by Godswhisper1 on 1/24/12

Watched this movie with family and friends. Not a dry eye in the room. Absolutely the best example of what the fathers in this world need to strive for. If we had more fathers willing to step up and not just play the game, yet live the life, this world would be better for it and so would the families, children, communities, and upward! Are you willing?

A legacy that can change the future of your family by Chaplain's wife on 1/24/12

This movie has everything, action, drama and valious that can seriously make you think about the purpose that God has for families, especially men. In a generation where many of us come broken families or know many families and children who are hurting... this movie is a must. My husband is a Military Chaplain and we know this message could help many young families that need the leadership of Godly Fathers. Share the message with your family, neighbores and friends :o)

Movie of the year!!!! by Charity on 1/22/12

I haven't cried or laughed so much during one movie, in all my life! This heart-wrenching movie contains some of the most important moral lessons taught in life... and it shows us all we should never be afraid to honor God, no matter who, or where, we are. I could only hope my daughter's absent father get's the chance to experience this movie and it touches his heart like it has mine. I will be buying this movie on DVD and highly recommending it to family and friends!!!!

God if only! by Mother - "SON" on 1/20/12
Rating

This movie brings such a powerful message to life. As I watched it I found myself weeping not along with the movie, okay I did that too, but at the sheer reality that this is so true now, yesterday, and in the future if something doesn't change. We as Christians must pick up the banner and make our own "Resolutions." By continuing to pray to our "Father" above to give us the wisdom to live our lives as he would have us to do we can set an example to others in the teachings of the ways of our Lord, Jesus Christ! I was taught from a child "To lead by example" and "To help others less fortunate than me". This I have done and if I have helped one I will have helped a million! You can help in so many ways that you are unaware of if you would only say hi. Encouragement is a wonderful thing to have and can be done with only that one little word.

Stop watching trash and watch some truth. Children need Godly families and if we don't provide one they will find a poor replacement in the form of a gang. Fathers step up now or lose your kids. Everyone needs to see this fantastic movie.

I went to see this movie in the theater, but am going to buy the DVD because it is one of the movies (Christian based) that touched my heart beyond measure. I am going to buy it and invite my son over to watch it. I want him to see the effect he has in his children's lives and this movie really shows it. Thank you for making this type of movie available to the public. We need it.

AMAZING!!! by Sammie on 1/17/12
Rating

Courageous was by far the best of the three - it really hit home for me. The message of not regretting the times you didn't get to spend with a loved one, but remembering the times you did get to spend with them and cherishing them. I am a child from a broken home and didn't have a dad like the one's portrayed in the movie. I'm now married to a wonderful man who is like the men in this movie and I pray everyday that he has the strength to stay that way. When we have kids and they watch this movie, I want them to be reminded of their family - not what they wish their family could have been. And yes, I cried way too much in this movie.

I went to see this simply because it was the only movie playing at the same time as another that my daughter was going to see. I never expected to feel so emotionally spent and drained by a movie in my life, as i was that day. I felt every emotion under the sun. Meeting up with my daughter and friends after the movie, they could all tell that I was changed in some way. IT IS A LIFE CHANGING EVENT...I could say movie, but it was more than that for me! God Bless!

Ethically, Morally, and Spiritually Resounding - A true American story dating back to the foundation years. by Hanni on 12/15/11
Rating

Each day, we visit or are visited with different infractions and sometimes, blessings, in our lives. With each one, whether they make us smile or laugh, happy or cheerful, sad or alone, we are better for them. We are wiser with each passing day, each passing experience.

This movie starts out as if the actors and actresses were going to display their amateurish selves, but very quickly the level rose to a certain quality that made it one of my most real ones. This movie, Courageous, will always have value even until and after we return to God’s ways and expectations. Families are created and strengthened and some recreated yet strengthened by certain unwanted behaviors of some of its members. Throughout, the intention was to show that a family without a strong father/husband image generally fails. The intention, also showed that perseverance in the things that are right and good far supersede those that are aimless or more so, those that without love and concern for people and their feelings. The movie, Courageous, encourages the male figure in the family to stay the course in sound and Biblical fatherhood and husbanding and to trust in the end result more than in one’s wish for a desired outcome/answer. It pushes the families to believe in God’s hand in all matters and allows them to trust in miracles. This is a beautiful movie with only real live truths about lives that believe in and trust in God. God’s word and work only come alive to those who seek Him and Courageous shows this so subtly, yet reveals it very vividly in some areas. Beautiful, and as a man that is filled with the love of Christ and love for people and family and all life, I am eager to tell you too that this movie brought tears and sniffles to me on several occasions. My wife, who is normally sober for things such as these, found herself several times saying, “this was a truly good movie”. This is unusual for her, especially when it comes to spirituality – she withholds from easy-to-believe scenes that have been proven on so many occasions to be hoaxes or played out by “wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing”.

I loved this movie, it had all the elements - it made me cry, laugh, and cry again. I agree with so many out there that every man married or not should see this. Our country is falling apart and if men took the responsibility where they need to as well as women we can start putting this country back together. It was not intended to have so many single moms & dads out there.

MOVIE TO BE SEEN BY ALL!!! by Rice on 11/26/11
Rating

I just saw this AWESOME movie yesterday as a surprise double-date with my husband and my cousin and her husband that we are visiting in Rochester, New York! What a REAL EYE-OPENER! I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT! So thankful for the laughs in between the serious issues that could make you cry cause I think I cried about 3/4 of the movie! Funny thing about that was the 3 men who were in line before us were seeing the same movie and I half jokingly told them I better not see a dry eye from them! I am however disappointed that it wasn't showing in every city cause we are from southern Maryland and I had high hopes of wanting my church to have a private screening to invite our friends and those who are lost to see this movie! I hope we can still do that when this movie comes out! As mentioned in an earlier review, this is a movie that wives can benefit from as well as we need to encourage and be the anchor to uphold our men in being accountable to be the leader in our home as well as in the community. It also explained better how I was trying to tell my husband that I wanted him to be a father figure to one of my son's friends who's young single mother I've been witnessing to since the spring.

This movie is the best the Sherwood Pictures has put out yet. They got so many things really right. The cinematography is really well done the acting is on the whole much better But what really shines in this is the story. The characters ring true and you really connect to them. The story moves from hilarious moments that my kids are still quoting to heart ache to hope and joy. As we were leaving the theater my kids (14 and 15) looked at me and said we're buying this when it comes out right Mom? Yes kids, yes we are!

I'll be buying several DVD's when they come out and sharing them with families that I know will benefit from the message and the call to action. Not only does this movie encourage & challenge men, but there is also a strong message to encourage wives to be the women that God asks them to be... to stand with their husbands, supporting & encouraging their men through the tough times & the good times.

My wife and I were able to see this movie at a pre-release event, and we both agree that it was every bit as good as Fireproof - in fact maybe even better. Good humor in the right places, great actors playing their parts in a believable way - strong message. We own FlyWheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and now we'll own Courageous. Well done Sherwood Pictures, keep them coming!!

This movie will take you through every conceivable emotion you have, even those you weren't aware you had. It pulls you from one emotion to another keeping you guessing and reflecting while still maintaining an excellent story line.
