Every Boy Needs A HERO, DVD review and GIVEAWAY


Christian Family Movie

Running time 94 minutes

From producers of Alone Yet Not Alone, comes a heartfelt movie about legendary small town baseball coach, Joe Finn (Burgess Jenkins, Remember the Titans, Nashville, The Shunning), who after taking his shot as a scout for the big leagues returns home to discover the damage he's done by leaving his family behind.   Now on a quest to rebuild his relationship with his son David, Joe forms a new baseball league to reinvigorate the underdog little league team his son had been coaching.  Together, as father and son, they try to put away their differences and help bring their ragtag team of ball players, “The Gappers”, to victory.
Burgess, who has a child of his own, was excited about the film.   “This movie really reinforces the importance of fathers in a child’s life.  Sports can be that vehicle to solidify the bond.”  George Escobar, a producer of Hero, wanted to make a movie that highlighted the real value in playing a sport and trying to win.   “I grew up playing sports, and this idea of playing without winners and losers just seems like a missed opportunity to teach the kids how to train themselves to win.  As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.  A rival will push you harder than the desire to do your best.  
In a movie sure to inspire fathers and sons alike, Hero presents an all-star cast including Gregory Alan Williams (In the Line of Fire, The Preacher's Kid), R. Keith Harris (Big Fish), and Mark Joy (The Ultimate Gift).    The film also includes a musical score by Grammy winner, Michael Omartian. 

My thoughts:

Gather the whole family together and watch this bittersweet story of one man seeking to amend for leaving his family!

Joe Finn followed his dream leaving behind a wife and a boy who worshiped the ground his father walked on. Life did not stand still however and his return is done under less than joyful circumstances.
He wants to make amends but is it too late to regain his son's love and respect?

If you like small town wholesome atmosphere, baseball little leagues and care about good solid family values, this movie is for you! It is a movie about filial love and caring for what really matters in life, something we parents sometime forget in our busy lives. Most important, EVERY BOY NEEDS A HERO reminds us of the influence we have on our children's lives, an important factor if we care about their future.

I give it 5 stars for its honest portrayal of a true Christian father who cares to admit he was wrong and does something about it.

And He Shall Turn The Heart Of The Fathers To The Children, And The Heart Of The Children To Their Fathers.
~Malachi 4:6 KJV~

  1. I would like to share this movie with my grandson. He doesn't have any real hero figures in his life and he needs a good idea of what to look for in a hero.
