Faith of Our Fathers: A Story of Fatherhood A Journey of Brotherhood DVD Movie Review

Faith of Our Fathers is a brand new Christian movie. The movie begins with young couple John Paul (play by Kevin Downes) and Cynthia (played by Candace Carmen Bure). They are getting married in a few weeks. John Paul has unanswered questions about his late father, Eddie. His father served in the Vietnam War alongside his best friend, Steven. They were both tragically killed in combat. He tracks down his father’s best friend’s son, Wayne (played by David A.R. White). Wayne takes John Paul on a road trip journey to see the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. and he tries to help him discover the truths about their fathers. Along the way, Wayne convinces John Paul to buy the letters he received from his father for $500 dollars a piece. These letters contain information about their fathers and what happened in Vietnam.

I would recommend this amazing movie to anyone who enjoys faith based movies. This movie is a perfect movie to watch to remember Veteran’s Day. I loved the dynamitic list of movie stars staring in this movie. Candace Carmen Bure is one of my favorite actress who always portrays in nice family friendly roles. I also loved the surprise guest star Duck Dynasty, Si Robertson and how he brought humor to the scene. I loved seeing Christian artist, Rebecca St. James back on screen. I liked the overall plot of the film and how they showed old war scenes to add to the movie’s appearance. I also liked how the letters showed the journey of how Wayne’s father became a Christian by being influenced by Eddie. The movie is kind of a sad movie but I liked how the film showed the power of brotherhood in fathers and sons. If you’re looking for a new movie to watch, then watch this film!

About the movie:
John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers.  Problem is...their fathers have been dead for 25 years.  Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons...whom they've never met.  In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades.  They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born.  In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers' names.  Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died.  Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys.  The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam.  Ultimately, in parallel stories - 25 years apart - the fathers and sons are bound together forever.
