Not Easily Broken is based on a novel written by T.D. Jakes. The movie shows the power that true loves hold when the going gets tough. The movie was touching, gripping and very realistic. The feelings of regret, hurt, frustration, anger, even the urge to go astray were so real I felt as if I were a part of the movie. It also showed what could happen when you assume how another person may think or feel; and what could happen in your life when God is integral. I love seeing roles where our Black men are depicted as strong men that positively handle their struggles. I definitely like movies that cast our men in similar strong roles (especially if Morris Chestnut is involved). Although the movie had its serious moments, the serious moments had interludes of lightheartedness when Kevin Hart (Tree) came onto the scene. That little dude is so funny to me. This movie was definitely worth watching, especially for those who need a reminder that God is always the Way.
