Faith of Our Fathers is on DVD now. This story is about two young men from two different worlds but have one thing in common, their father’s were friends in the Vietnam war. After John Paul’s (Kevin Downes) mother dies he finds a box labeled “save”. It was full of memorabilia from the war his father was in. In it are some letters talking about a friend of his father’s. John tells his fiancee, Cynthia (Candace Cameron Bure) that he needs to go find his father’s friend and find out what happened to him. This leads John to Wayne (David A.R. White). Wayne is a strange and almost scary man. He has letters from his father that he’s willing to share but it will come at a price to John Paul. They then make a journey to Washington D.C. to visit the Wall. Along their trip they meet some strange people, played by Stephen Baldwin, Rebecca St. James and Si Robertson. This journey is not only a journey to find out more about their fathers but also a journey to find out who they are in this world and where Christ plays a role in it.
This was a great movie. It’s heartfelt and had been crying by the end. It gives a small perception of what is was like as a Christian in the War. It also shows how our faith can play a huge role in how we live our lives. I loved all the big name stars being in it. Si Robertson is a riot. The thing I thought of when I saw he was in it was his stories of being in the Vietnam War, his sweet tea and the blue/green cup. I was glad they interviewed him in the special features. It puts the whole war in even more perspective hearing about it from someone who was there. I also enjoyed Stephen Baldwin’s special feature interview and why he feels it’s important as a celebrity to spread the Good News of Christ and doing these types of movies.
There is some gun fighting and blood. I would say to watch it before you allow your child to watch it with you. It’s rated PG-13 for the violence. This would be a great movie to watch with a group of friends for movie night. It spreads a good message and wold be fun to have a discussion after.
