      JBStudios A This is a great inspirational movie about a limbless man. Such great music and visuals. Awesome, family friendly. Starring fellow Australian Nick Vuijcic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Lindsay T Definitely worth the watch. When a movie, let alone a 20 min film can inspire & stir this much emotion, it's nothing short of amazing! I was really hoping to see a lengthy movie, maybe telling about other characters (especially Mendez & his contortions man). Also, how it began & maybe more characters & how it ended. One of my favorites (movies). Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Ryan K The message in this short film is powerful and the acting isn't horrible, especially considering that none of these actors are especially well-known. In fact, Eduardo Verastegui (Mr. Mendez) and Nick Vujicic (Will) should each receive an Oscar for their amazing acting, especially Verastegui! If this short film doesn't at least make your eyes watery, then you must be dead (or at least your soul is dead). This film proves that failure is just a mindset. "The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph!" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
