‘The Frontier Boys’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
The Frontier Boys is the story of four high school boys whose undefeated basketball season and their friendship is threatened after a drive-by shooting leaves one of them in a coma and one of them with a secret. Brent Fencett, Jed Bracken, and T.J. Lewis are star players on theCharlevoix High School Basketball team; Jackson Carlson is their most obnoxious fan. They are unbeaten on the court and inseparable off it – until Brent gets caught up in his older brother’s mixed up life. The consequences of Brent’s choice leave T.J. in the hospital, and Brent’s soul in turmoil.
With performances by Big Kenny (formerly of Big & Rich), Grammy Award winner Rebecca St. James, former Olympic boxer Earthquake Kelley and a cast of young talent, The Frontier Boys is classic storytelling that still breaks through in the midst of a post-modern world.
After watching this film for a 2nd time last night, I liked it even better the 2nd time. Here were some highlights:
- The amazing examples of Christian character shown in the lives of several of the people.
- Some very realistic moments throughout.
- Laugh out loud moments spread throughout the film.
- Surprising ending. Very nice finish and it doesn’t leave you wondering what happened to any of the characters.
CFDb highly recommends this movie for youth. It’s great for a discussion starter.
