Another Christian drama from Sherwood Pictures Ministry (the same people who made Fireproof and Facing the Giants), Courageous is about four policemen who are trying to bust up a local drug ring. After the Sheriff reveals a link between fatherless children and criminal activity later in life and a horrible incident occurs in one of their families, the story shifts to the policemen taking up the Sheriff's challenge to be better fathers. As the story unfolds, each of the police officers with perhaps one exception is shown striving to be the best father he can be according to The Bible.

Officer Adam Mitchell (Alex Kendrick) hopes to reconnect with his son, Dylan (Rusty Martin Jr.). Nathan Hayes (Ken Bevel) attempts to form bridge of trust between himself and his teenage daughter as she navigates through dating (or not dating). Divorcé Shane Fuller (Kevin Downes) tries to be a good role model to his son, while David Thomson (Ben Davies) begins a journey to rediscover his old girlfriend and the child he had with her. During all this, another family enters the scene and Javier Martinez (Robert Amaya) makes a late addition to the challenge as he battles living life honestly in a corruptive workforce.

Surprisingly better quality than prior films by Sherwood (not just with the script but also with the overall filming itself), Courageous is an inspirational film with surprising twists, good comic relief and a passion for Christian principles.
