      Audience Member Well done and intriguing. Kevin Sarbo and Samuel Davis were solid in their acting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie which is safe for well-rounded families (who do not hide the realities of life from their children). This does have strong Christian Biblical undertones, however. So please beware - if you aren't into that, it may ruin the movie for you. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member At least Abel's Field was not a waste of time but I don't think I can really recommend it as it has corny football playing and a lame fight in the beginning of the film all of a sudden. The characters are mediocre, but the acting was good. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A decent film about redemption, and overcoming life obstacles. Sorbo plays Able the loner, drifter who is passing through town and becomes the local high schools maintenance worker. Seth has one of the worst hands of cards dealt in life with a brother who wants nothing to do wiht him a mom who passed when he was young, a non-existent trucker dad who had a secret life on the road who dies, a home that is about to be repossessed along with utilities bills that rack up, 2 younger sisters to take care of, 2 jobs to work to support their life. After being abused and bullied by the low life football team he stands up for himself and gets rewarded with the task of helping the maintenance worker to get the field ready for homecoming....A cheesy ending that you could have called mid-way through, Oh yeah, and there's the standard Love interest that only brings trouble. Though all things considered this film holds fast to some great themes and holds to some strong values and moral decisions. A nice family film to watch together and I love the reoccurring theme of a hard work ethic. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member If you are looking for a movie that has a reasonably cohesive story that you can cry the whole way through this is the movie for you. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
