HERO (DVD Review & #Giveaway)


Disclosure:  I received a copy of this DVD for review purposes.  I was not required to write a positive review, and unless otherwise noted, all opinions in this post are my own.

From the press release:
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.
Joe Finn was on the road for work so much that his son David felt abandoned by his father for years.  When Joe returns to town and finds David angry and cold toward him, he decides to help coach the baseball team that David has been working with.  Through this he hopes to rebuild his relationship with David,

My whole family watched HERO with interest.  (You may remember that my husband and son often drift away if the movies I'm watching are too girly or not exciting enough for them.  Not this time.)  I really enjoyed it.  Although many--most?--of the scenes take place on the baseball field, the movie is really about the relationships.

I appreciate that HERO is family-friendly, although the cover cautions that "its subject matter is best understood by children 10 and older."  I agree.  In its message, HERO reminds me of "Courageous."  Family values, strong father figures, and commitment to a goal are major themes of HERO.

  2. I like that the movie is 'baseball' themed, but doesn't necessarily revolve around baseball! Would be great for the baseball fans in my family, but also for me, who would prefer themes! (:
