    Marc Forster's machine gun preacher is a very underacted and very good movie about a guy who is pretty messed up and then kills someone and then decides he want god to forgive him for his sins so he goes to church and becomes a preacher and helps children in the civil war from being killed but loads of bad stuff happen and it just makes him feel worse but he keeps bringing in more people and more money that…

    The trouble with scripting bio-pics is that stories need an internal logic whilst life doesn't. Gerard Butler is a trained lawyer so he should surely be able to sue the writers using the trade descriptions act. It's an interesting idea which doesn't come off because it doesn't seem to know how to shape the parts into anything whole.

    Machine Gun Preacher - This should of been an interesting and thought provoking story. What you end up with is somewhat pedestrian. (C+)

    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…
