    A workmanlike, if treacly and overblown, piece of propaganda. Its effectiveness depends entirely on the degree to which you already believe its talking points.

    The patriot-packaged Last Ounce of Courage has been made with the conviction of true zealots, but also the competence of amateurs.

    Pure preaching-to-the-choir poppycock.

    The problem with this numbskull travesty isn't that it's fatuous and smug (which it is). It's that it's slack and dull.

    The film strives so much to have heart, it comes across as heartless and mean-spirited. Bah, humbug!

    How this got a theatrical release is beyond anything I could ever think of. This is less of a movie and more of a propaganda-crammed train-wreck. With a boring story, bland characters, and filmwork that would make a home video look like the next Scorsese, it would have been much better off getting canned and making room for something that is actually worth the price of admission. Take the money and get some sleeping pills if you'd like to have the same experience as seeing this "film". Full Review »

    I'll give you $15 bucks to stop making crappy religious movies like this one. "Last Ounce to Courage" doesn't have enough stamina and therefore, I'd wish they have an ounce of dying instead of courage. It's even worse than Act of Valor. Full Review »

    Incredibly bad right-wing propaganda film is so ridiculously pompous and self-righteous that it inspires more laughter than reverence for its premise, the largely-imaginary War on Christmas that seems to obsess Fox News devotees. Devoted to supposedly dire events that have never, ever happened in this country - a war hero mayor being fired for putting up Christmas decorations - the film ultimately denigrates and trivializes the sacrifices of real-life veterans in service of a script so offensively dumb that only the most vapid and paranoid of viewers will find any satisfaction in this lugubrious turd.
