For a movie that won’t even open until September 30 to already be labeled “Best movie of the year,” you might think is merely marketing hype.
When you hear that the one who called it “Best movie of the year” is Pastor Rick Warren, you might think it’s a churchy movie.
But you’d be wrong.
I had a chance to see Courageous and I can tell you that this will be the best movie of 2011, and that it is definitely NOT a churchy movie.
Set against the backdrop of a city battling gang-related issues, four sheriff’s deputies struggle with being good dads and good law enforcement officers. In the process they learn what it takes to excel at both: it takes courage.
Courageous opens on September 30.
