    5/10: Averagely good. This movie has a lot of graphic and violent scenes, showing the horror caused by a civil war, torture, savage murders, and how entire villages are destroyed. Very graphic and unsettling in many ways.

    ¿Por qué tuvo esta película una acogida tan mala en el cine? No es mala. Decae al final, sí, pero no es mala como para recaudar un ingreso inferior a la inversión. Es una historia cruda y desgarradora, que en cierto modo es personal (no es un "Diamante de Sangre" o un "Lágrimas del sol"). Se basa en un hecho real, de alguien contándote su historia (con el filtro "ficción" encendido, por algunas escenas –la del tornado, por ejemplo– inventadas…

    "But God don't only call the good.I reckon every now and again he calls us sinners, too, and I was about as bad as they come."- Sam Childers.

    A good film that tells a true story about the horrors in war torn Africa. It can be a little harrowing at times but it is necessary to the telling of the story.
    There is good acting throughout from all and it is shot well and moves along nicely.Good effort that is worth watching.

    Mmmh. Christians in Africa with Guns. Let me think about that for a minute.

    With a hectic work schedule and actually socialising a lot, my film watching had slowed to an almost halt recently. So, first of all, a recap of the reviews I had neglected to post. First up; 'Machine Gun Preacher'.

    I won't let, I hadn't done my research on this one, and was expecting an action flick. Can't blame me for expecting that with Butler starring. Regardless of expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.

    Machine Gun Preacher is certainly contrived, but it…

    Mostly lousy film with unsympathetic characters in a messy narrative that never feels like it has substance to it's tribulations. Until around the last twenty minutes when one of the orphan kids speaks and the film begins to address it's subject matter head on.

    Machine Gun Preacher tried to show a humanist storytelling and good example of individual as Gerard Butler Character. But behind it, very weak story plot kills audience mood into beneath level

    If you think Machine Gun Preacher sounds like the new mascot for the American Tea Party movement, then you aren't too far off. Telling the story of an ex-con who finds religion and decides to build an orphanage in Sudan, Machine Gun Preacher is a pretty messy film with some real highs and lows throughout its 2+ hour runtime.

    As I always feel the need to do with these true story inspired films, I must point out that the message…

    "Think of the children!" This biker did, and that's why his daughter didn't get to ride in a limo. I had forgotten about KONY 2012 until I saw this. Butler and Shannon are great. It's a bit long, but they needed to do that to show the contrast in locations and lifestyles. Awesome directing, an enjoyable drama.
