I had the chance to review the movie Hero for Family Christian. This movie contains no bad language or elements and is best suited for ages 10 and up.
A father leaves his family for 7 years to pursue a dream, leaving his family waiting on the sidelines. While he is gone his wife passes away.
This movie is about mending broken relationships. The father, played by actor Burgess Jenkins, must work to fix everything he broke when he left, including his relationship he had with his son.
I can't even imagine having a parent leave for 7 years. Can you imagine the hurt you would feel as a child? As the parent, can you imagine missing 7 years of you kid's childhood? That's not something that I can possibly imagine.
The father and son reconnect by starting their own baseball team. The father makes a point of trying to get all the dads involved in their sons lives. He changes the community in doing so.
I am not perfect and neither are any of God's children. The beauty in this movie comes in when you see forgiveness slowly working. Forgiveness does not happen instantly. It is a long process of learning to trust again.
"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers."
I give Hero, 3 out of 5 stars. I love the grace and forgiveness in this movie. Some of the movie is predictable and a bit far fetched. I really enjoyed that there was no foul language. In today's day and age, where you hear bad language on network television, this movie is refreshing.
Hero has a running time of 94 minutes. To learn more you can visit HeroFamilyMovie.com. To purchase Every Boy Need A Hero click here
