23 Blast -- (a movie review) #23Blast #flyby

Twenty-six  Middle Schoolers in one room and not a sound to be heard?  No phone lights flashing, no keys clicking in text?  Totally unheard of you say?  Yep!  I agree.  Until you put a great movie on for them to watch.  You know the one that has football, friendship, faith, and JESUS?

23 BLAST is the PERFECT movie for a family-friendly get together to share food, fellowship, fun, and faith.  It definitely scores a TOUCHDOWN from all of us.

About the movie:  Rated PG-13 (brief drinking of alcohol on school property)  / 1h 42m run time

As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is:  He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.

(Edited to add:)  We LOVED this movie as a Middle School Ministry and at my house it is a family favorite.  It's one we watch and re-watch frequently.  As a matter of fact, we shared it again with both Middle School Ministry and High School Ministry at our back-to-school kick-off event on a big screen outdoors and once again, all eyes were on the movie -- no cell phones needed.  It really is a GREAT film.

23 BLAST is an incredible story of perseverance, courage, and HOPE.  I know you are going to love it!  Enjoy!
