I watched this movie on one of the U.S. religious cable channels, under the title Heart of a Hero. Best: actor Nathan Gamble... He was very believable and sincere with a script that I suspect most preteens and teens would find difficult (praying, for instance). Very good at crying. Perhaps not quite so good at it as Bobs Watson, but very convincing. Good: The movie promotes a worthy hobby for boys and girls.
Problems: I did not care much for the obvious advertising-- a major vehicle insurance company and others. Not very subtle at all.
Finally, why on earth was this done with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio? When my flat screen re-sized it to fit the screen, the boy and other characters were vertically squashed, making them all looked stunted and overweight. Did this happen because the movie was not shot with movie film, but rather was all digital?
