Buck and his workplace friends set out on a mission to take God's word to a remote place in space, Sector 9, that has lost it's transponder- the way they are able to hear the preaching of a famous pastor. Buck thinks this will be his way to do something big and make a difference. Through a series of crazy adventures, what Buck learns in the end is that only half of his poster is true- God wants YOU! Period. Just you! Buck learns that having a dream is important, but more important are God's dreams. We must learn to follow God's will, not ours.
God needs leaders who follow God's heart instead of their own
Pretty profound, don't you think?
So what did we think?
Cute, cute, cute! I admit to not knowing what to expect with this movie. When it begins, it is clearly puppetry combined with animation so I was not sure all the kids in the family would be impressed. But, let me just say, the giggles started immediately. And not just from the 8 year old! Our whole family laughed a lot and is STILL quoting lines. Yes. We are weird like that.
Like when Buck introduces himself as Buck, Buck Denver. And then the other character calls him Buck Buck the rest of the movie. He does try to correct him, but the guy tells him he likes Buck Buck better.

Above all though, are the Biblical truths that Phil Vischer is famous for embedding in his films. Through fun and laughter he conveys Gods's love for us, His plan for us, and how we must trust in Him! When you watch his movies, Galaxy Buck: Mission to Sector 9, you come away with a positive, Biblical message, Biblical truths, and clean family fun, appropriate for all ages.
