If you have seen War Room, Facing The Giants and Fireproof – You need to see Overcomer, if you haven’t seen it yet, I totally recommend it. I think it’s my favorite movie so far from the Kendrick Brothers.
Overcomer is entertaining. It’s engaging. It’s funny. It’s convicting. It’s inspiring. It has the right pace. It has a solid cast. Most importantly, it has a Gospel-centric message that aims at your heart and soul. I bawled my eyes out throughout the whole movie. I went to see it with a friend, we were both crying.
Overcomer, like all Kendrick movies, has a biblical theme. Its promotional materials ask the question: What do you allow to define you? It’s similar to the question Thomas asks Coach Harrison: Who are you? The Kendricks want moviegoers to consider whether their identity is found in the eternal Christ—as Ephesians 1-2 teaches—or in temporal, worldly things.
Overcomer is from the creators of the #1 box-office hit War Room. Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison (Kendrick) after he loses his basketball team and is challenged by the school’s principal, Olivia (Shirer), to coach a new sport he doesn’t know or like. As John questions his own worth, he dares to help the least likely runner take on the biggest race of the year. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, humor and heart, this inspirational story will have you on the edge of your seat.
