When the Game Stands Tall Movie Review

Mom Among Chaos had the opportunity to check out a pre-screening of "When The Game Stands Tall" last week at the Novi Emagine.  I was really excited to see this movie.  I was expecting something along the lines of The Blind Side, but boy was I wrong.

This movie is about a high school football team in California that had a 151 game winning streak over many years.  The movie is based off a book by Neil Hayes.  You can purchase the book on Amazon

I liked that the movie had a Christian theme.  I also loved the main character who is the football coach.  He was soft spoken and kind.  The movie had a great moral of working together as a team. 

My husband loved this movie.  He thought it was the best movie he had seen in a long time.  I even caught him crying during a few emotional scenes.  I personally thought the movie should have been shorter.  I kept waiting for it to end, which is a bad sign.  If you are a football fan, I would highly recommend checking this one out.

I personally would give this movie 3 out of 5 stars.  I did not fall in love with it, even though my husband did.  So, if you're looking for a good christian based movie or just love football, go see it.  It's playing now.
