Full Count (phim hanh dong my) is too jumpy to grab the viewer’s attention and involvement. In fact, it jumps so much that it’s actually hard to follow. Also, the acting is below average. However, the movie does have a strong Christian, biblical worldview with prayer, family loyalty. So many Scripture references, and faith that God will see His children through all situations. However, some disturbing deaths and violence warrant caution for older children.
Very strong Christian, biblical worldview as prayer and church services are depicted. Scripture is quoted throughout the movie. And the main character is seen reading his Bible, character talks about his “inner voice” (which is assumed to be the Holy Spirit leading him). A conversation about God blessing you with talents, miracles happen. What’s thought to be an angel blows on and touches the arms of the main character to give him knowledge. A strong mother and son relationship is depicted. And character forgives his father for his shortcomings and patches up the relationship.
Young man is seen having an overdose. One character is seen having a stroke or a heart attack and dying. Man is seen beating up main character and stealing his truck with him in it and. While driving hits and kills a woman. After the man hits the woman. He continues to beat the boy and frame him for the accident. Woman points gun at a man on her property out of protection. And two teammates get into two pushing and shoving altercations.
