’23 Blast’ ~ CFDb Movie Review &
Recommendation & DVD Giveaway
A new feature film from director Dylan Baker. Based on the Amazingly True Story of Travis Freeman.
When a high school football star is suddenly stricken with irreversible total blindness, he must decide whether to live a safe handicapped life or bravely return to the life he once knew and the sport he still loves.
Travis shows us what true bravery is by competing on the gridiron, even after becoming blind overnight. Depicting a story of hope triumphing over despair, of courage and faith overcoming fear, and of victory prevailing over adversity, 23 Blast is designed to encourage and uplift audiences.
What an inspirational film. Here are some highlights:
- Some great moments of humor throughout.
- Sometimes we need tough love in a crisis.
- Friends are necessary in a time of crisis. Isolation is NEVER a good thing.
- Tough adjustment period after a terrible loss. We all handle crisis differently, but we all need time to adjust.
- Great example of determination and perseverance.
- Failure is not trying.
- LOVED the dream.
As the picture above asks the question, which character are you, think about it! There is a bully, a real friend, a motivator, a superficial friend, and the determined one.
Although the beginning is rather slow and there is almost no Christianity shown in the film, hang in there because this movie inspires you to persevere no matter what happens in life. Pay CLOSE attention to the ending.
