This really is an amazing story – because it is true! It follows the football star Travis Freeman who catches an infection that destroys his optic nerve, leaving him blind. It goes without saying that this kind of disability would leave most not only without a career, but also in misery. But that would not be the fate for Travis.

An inspirational Christian football movie

Giving up is not an option for this young man, and with parents who have faith in God and their son, a great rehab person, and a coach who doesn’t understand the meaning of giving up, Travis is pushed to find his way back onto the field.

More often than not many of the stories we see in mainstream media lack any powerful message. That is certainly not true of 23rd Blast! It comes through the screen as we see the passion of the actors putting out some great roles, really showing the care and attention the makers of this movies have made to handle such a tale. As a true story that is so remarkable, it deserves this attention.

Football is a great analogy for life, and as Christians we often watch football to see a microcosm of the world on the field. Well this movie is about this greatness in life taken onto the field and beautifully captured in film.

Is this Christian movie recommended?

We at Heavenly Art very much recommend this movie. In fact we would go as far as to say that you should watch this, even that maybe it is important that you do to keep the story alive. That is what we do as Christian’s, isn’t it? Keep stories alive? And that is what we should do here as it is simply a lovely story about faith, community and courage.

We are more than happy to give this Christian movie 8 out of 10.
