| Faith, Family, Fatherhood - all in one
This is quite simply a superb movie about faith, love, family and what is really important in life. A must for all fathers and would be fathers. The movie weaves real life adventure and problems into a compelling police-based story and delivers solutions to those problems that can be used in our lives. Sure, some of the jokes are a little corny, but they are all in good taste - a rare exception to Hollywood's sex, sex and more sex mentality. The acting is really pretty good - there's no Brad Pitt here, but there is plenty of heart and soul from the entire cast. Hard to believe a movie with this much drama, acting and pathos was created with only a one million dollar budget! It is not only entertaining and funny but didactic as well. Don't miss this one - do it for yourself - do it for God!

The building where they test/torture Derrick to accept him as a member, was over 100 years old. It had been abandoned, and was torn down right after filming.


Adam Mitchell: So where are you men of courage? Where are you, fathers who fear the Lord? It's time to rise up and answer the call that God has given to you, and to say, "I will. I will. I will."


When Nathan falls off the truck while the thug crashes the truck in the tree, a stunt double is seen in the truck (wearing a green shirt/goatee) instead of the thug.
