Item description for Hometown Legend (Snap Case) by Terry O'Quinn, Lacey Chabert, Nick Cornish, Kirk B.R. Woller, Ian Bohen & James Anderson...
Divine intervention on the gridiron propels a high school football squad to prominence in this inspirational drama from producer and best-selling Christian author Jerry Jenkins. In a town with little hope, the Crusaders, a team of perennial losers, show that a bit of faith can help win battles on the field and beyond. Their dauntless spirit gives the town -- and the team's newest player, a teenage drifter -- something to believe in.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hometown Legend (Snap Case)?
Very disappointing - especially for a Christian film Jan 30, 2007
There are many reasons why I gave this film a low rating. From a Christian perspective, the "God-talk" in the movie is very, very weak. Nothing really biblical or even spiritually moving is presented. There is no mention of Jesus or salvation. Other reviewers have mentioned the bad language and some objectionable outfits/relationships. On to the plot: again, weak. The "legendary" coach is simply a very bad coach. He yells, constantly loses his temper, violates his own advice on the field, puts his players at risk of serious injury, and ridiculously cuts his football team to a minimum of players by throwing people off the field for - of all things, not joining in a brawl! When he "changes" later in the film, the change isn't clear enough or shown enough to really make us believe in character development. The football action isn't that good. A lot of up-close cut scenes, without a good feel for actual football. The overall message of the film is slightly confused. Teamwork? (After ruthlessly throwing kids off the team?) Not quitting even though you are going to lose? OK. The town unified around a winning season? (Yeah, but how long would that last after the school closed?) The film tried, and some parts were moving or inspiring, but overall I just felt frustrated at what the movie could have been.

This movie surprised me when I watched it for the first time.My mom originally bought it for my older brother for his birthday but I ended up watching it even more.It has a great story line and great actors to go along with that.What can I say I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Worth a Second Look Nov 3, 2006
While you wait for "Facing the Giants" to come out on DVD, I think this film is worth another look. Despite a few faults this is basically a feelgood movie adolescents and adults can watch together.
I cringed at some of the ridiculous profanities in "Gridiron Gang" which were obviously added by Hollyweird types and did nothing but offend many audience members. The worst thing in "Legend" is a few anatomy references. No sex, no rape, just a good basic movie.
If you've ever been to Gulf Shores, Alabama you may have been thru Foley, where this movie was filmed.
Hometown Legend Nov 2, 2006
Great movie with a positive message to preserve our principles and values. High recomended for the family.
A good movie! Jun 28, 2006
This is a really good movie. I do agree that this is a Christian movie that is not very preachy. If you don't like Christian films that are preachy, don't watch this movie. Otherwise, I do recommend this film. Just to help you save money, I found this movie in Wal-Mart's $5.50 movie bin. You'll get lucky if you find a copy.
