Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” Movies about adventure can encourage heroism, courage, and a willingness to stand for what is right in the face of adversity. In a time when adventure movies seem to be little more than an excuse to display violence and bloodshed, great adventure stories can inspire us to live for a more noble purpose. Here are some adventure movies that teens will love, and the whole family can endorse.
“The Storm & Luther’s Forbidden Letter”
Set against the backdrop of the Reformation, this movie puts young Storm in the center of one of the greatest controversies of the age.
Storm’s father owns a printing business, and when he is arrested for printing a forbidden letter written by controversial reformer Martin Luther, Storm barely escapes with the original. In a race against time, Storm tries to save his father from execution and get the letter into safe hands. But who can he trust? With help from Maria, a girl who lives in the city’s underground tunnels, Storm struggles to elude capture. What starts out as a fearful flight becomes a bold fight for freedom.
