My Brother's Keeper ~ Movie Review and Giveaway!

"My Brother’s Keeper is a well-executed balance of harsh realities and the grace and salvation that comes through faith in Christ." ~Review on Dove.org

MY BROTHER'S KEEPER shares the story of returning war veteran SFC Travis Fox (TC Stallings) who has one more battle to fight - PTSD. Fox and his best friend SFC Ron “Preach” Pearcy (Joey Lawrence) are in their 6th combat deployment when Preach and his entire Ranger platoon are killed in a deadly IED attack. Travis returns to his hometown to settle the affairs of his parents who had passed away years before. In searching for answers about his parents, he also stumbles upon a new obstacle in PTSD. He finds support from church counselor Tiffany Robertson (Keshia Knight-Pulliam) and slowly begins to rediscover his faith in God, until he discovers a secret that threatens his new-found beliefs, uncovers his guilt, and causes him to consider the unthinkable.

MY BROTHER’S KEEPER was directed by Kevan Otto (A QUESTION OF FAITH, FORGIVEN) and written by US Army Veteran Ty Manns (A QUESTION OF FAITH, THE 5TH QUARTER). The film stars TC Stallings (WAR ROOM, A QUESTION OF FAITH), Joey Lawrence (Melissa & Joey, Blossom, Ha-waii Five-0), Robert Ri’chard (COACH CARTER, Empire), and Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show).

Poignant film that explores loss, faith and friendship, as we follow Army Ranger Travis Fox a man returning home to settle affairs after the death of his parents in a suspicious accident. But what Travis finds when he comes home is far bigger than he could have ever imagined. 

There is a lot going on in this film, and I liked how it shows the ups and downs of Travis in his journey towards faith. It isn't just one turning point, but many. Returning home he faces many new challenges, there are layers to what he is up against, and he has a lot on his plate. The movie shows a man at war with himself, struggling to find footing to let himself step into a new kind of life.

The movie is engaging, though at times I wondered if there were scenes that were cut for time that would have delved more into certain topics, and I thought the romance was premature for everything that he was going through. 

Overall, I liked how this movie showed the struggles facing Veterans, how it isn't just one thing, but often there are layers. I loved that Travis had a strong support group around him, loving and helping him find his way. Travis is a strong solider, used to fighting for what he loves by being tough as nails, and I thought how Preach was woven in through his flashbacks and present day remembrances really worked well for the film. I think that Travis has a great story arc throughout the movie, not devoid of a few steps back every now and then, which made it more realistic. A movie with strong themes of faith, friendship, and forgiveness.

I received a complimentary pre-screening code to watch the film. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

This movie shares important, hopeful messages on the reality of PTSD in returning war veterans.
