John & Becky’s Movie Review of Machine Gun Preacher

Last week, Becky and I went to see the new movie Machine Gun Preacher in Denver at the Mayan Theater. The Fandango website at Machine Gun Preacher, describes the movie as follows:

 In this inspirational true story, Machine Gun Preacher is about Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children. Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance as Childers, the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster’s (Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland) moving story of violence and redemption… “

The Review 
Machine Gun Preacher is an amazing true story about Sam Childers and his amazing wife.  She put up with his insane antics as a thug, after she became a Christian and stuck with him through thick and thin.

The movie is a very powerful.  It’s an incredible story about love, hate, redemption and taking charge of a situation when nobody else wants to do anything.  The film also shows that one person with God really can make a difference.  The movie is based on the book – Another Man’s War: The True Story of One Man’s Battle to Save Children in the Sudan, which is an incredible story.

Becky and I had a chance to see and meet Sam and his wife at church in Castle Rock, CO when he came to visit recently.  His testimonial is really incredible and he pointed out that once he accepted Christ, he never went back to drinking like they showed he did in the movie.  He said, “That was Hollywood trying to make the movie more exciting, but it wasn’t true.”.

The critics didn’t like this movie because the Media in America cannot stand anything to do with Christianity, but it is definitely a Don’t Miss It in our book.  It’s not for kids though, even though it’s a Christian movie, so be aware that it is rated R for a reason.
