Flywheel – Christian Movie Reviews

Last night I watched a wonderful Christian movie called FlywheelFlywheel. This movie is by the same director of Facing the Giantsand Fireproof (Alex Kendrick), who also stars in the movie. I wasn’t sure what to expect (although I loved Facing the Giants), but at the end of the movie I found myself inspired and moved.

The movie is about a car salesman who is very dishonest…his interactions with almost everyone is rife with deceipt and a lack of integrity. He even swindles a minister and the church he attends with his family. I won’t give away what happens, but there are some points in the movie that I found most affected me.

♥ Give your lot to the Lord. Whether it succeeds or fails is not your concern. It’s His lot now, and it will succeed or fail as He wishes. Just live with integrity and accept the results.

♥ Tithe until there is nothing left to tithe from.

♥ In chaos, be still and pray.

I’ve been struggling with some issues in my life, and though I expect anyone who watches a movie to be moved by different aspects of it, these are the points of the movie that affected me most.

In the movie, the wife is a wonderful helpmeet to her husband. She expresses her disapproval when he acts in a way that is lacking in integrity while still being respectful and even obedient. She does not lower her own standards and behave in an equally shameful way.

The movie also reminded me that it’s always a great idea to give support and compliments when someone does something good. We are often quick to complain about something that displeases us, but how often do we take the time to give credit when we are pleased? When someone helps you, expressing gratitude, calling up their superior to let them know you received great service, or sharing with others your positive feelings about this person are all great ways to show your appreciation.

    Hi Penelope, I am glad to have found your review. I have seen Facing the Giants and I am sure Fireproof is excellent too. But … there will never be another Flywheel. A movie made out of prayer.
    I also very much enjoyed watching what they had to say about the movie themselves. You can check it out here, in case you havent seen it yet, its precious .
    Its called “The Miracle of Flywheel”.
    God bless 🙂
