This movie is rated PG. Please see the review below by Focus on the Family’s Plugged-In Movie Review website:

In an interview with the Catholic News Agency, Last Ounce of Courage screenwriter and co-director Darrel Campbell summed up what he hoped to accomplish with this film by saying, “I believe in this country, I believe in the people, I believe in freedom, I believe in my church, my religion, my faith. This country is based on faith, family and freedom, and that’s what the movie is about. … It is very rare for faith-based film to be about our country and our people. This is really a movie about all of us.”

Campbell’s motivation for writing the story—which is very similar to Bob’s onscreen motivation for bringing Christmas back to Mt. Columbus—was triggered by real-life stories of heroism in his own family. His father and uncle fought in World War II, with the latter paying the ultimate price. Set against the backdrop of American soldiers’ courageous sacrifice to preserve our way of life, Campbell hopes the film will be a catalyst for renewed conversation revolving around the question, “What can I do to make sure their sacrifice is not in vain?”

Many viewers will no doubt feel a renewed sense of the cost of freedom, as well as the importance of not taking our religious liberties in America for granted. The film will also serve as a guaranteed conversation starter regarding how we as Christians should best defend our ideals and convictions in the public square.

Sincere and conscientious Christians will reach different conclusions about what that kind of storytelling accomplishes, and how well it explores the relationship between our spiritual convictions and our political ones. But nobody will miss the point that we remove God from our public places at our peril.
