(CCC, BBB, VV, A, DD, M) Very strong evangelistic Christian, moral worldview about a gang member coming to Christ; no foul language; strong violence includes fights, beatings, and some blood, arson, knife fights, car crash; no salacious sex; no nudity; some alcohol; some drug references but drug use and sells are rebuked; and, bullying, lying, texting while driving, tattoos, but mostly rebuked.


Summary:

KING’S FAITH is an entertaining movie about a tough subject. It’s about a teenage foster child trying to escape his past and the drug gang he used to hang around. KING’S FAITH is a very redemptive, uplifting movie extolling the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but caution is advised for older children because of some violence.


Review:

KING’S FAITH is an entertaining movie about a tough subject.



A foster family takes in a foster boy in his teens who’s just been released from jail. The foster kid is Brendan King, a white boy who hung with a black gang. Brendan’s new foster parents are a black family, a father who’s trying desperately to make up for the loss of his son and a mother who wants no part of Brendan. Their son was a policeman. Their son’s police detective friend is convinced bad kids never change, so he’s constantly in Brendan’s face, challenging him at every opportunity.



Brendan saves the high school cheerleader from a car accident. This changes his image at the new high school from a loser to a hero. However, the big man on campus who loves the cheerleader is upset. And, Brendan’s old gang is tailing him in order to find the ice cooler full of heroin he buried before he being arrested. The question is, can Brendan escape his past? This question doesn’t just apply to Brendan, but to everyone.



KING’S FAITH is a watchable, entertaining movie. It’s a little rough for young children because of the violence, including several fights at the high school and fights with the gang. In one of the fights, Brendan gets beat up really bad. Brendan is known as a pit bull and he also takes out his anger. Only Christ can help him, of course.



There’s a lot of good in the movie, including conversion, faith, loyalty, giving people a second chance, and doing the right thing no matter what the cost. Since it’s oriented toward the faith-based market, some of it is too talky because it’s trying to replace gruesome and salacious scenes with dialogue. Even so, it does a good job of holding the viewer’s attention.
