Machine Gun Preacher Reviews
It's obvious why however. They are lit on fire by hell. The boorish critic, is a slave to the God hating oligarchy and would probably lose their jobs if they were to give a thumbs up to a faith based movie.
This is a movie that even shows the horrors of a warlord hated by the left, yet as soon as you inject Jesus into the movie, it must be panned.
There was not a dry eye in my household, first because a man was able to overcome his rough drug running past to become a preacher, second because this man exposed the horrors of the barbaric Kony terrorist cult in the Sudan, and third out of righteous anger he took up arms to defend and free children from slavery.
But to the effete leftist cultural censor, the concept of righteousness is boorish. This reminds me of the words of our greatest president, Teddy Roosevelt, a true man of deeds,
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. "
I think we know whose camp these critics are in. The poor timid soul who neither knows victory or defeat. That their consciences can be so seared as to not be moved by this film speaks volumes about their moral compass.
The movie may be over, but Childers continues his work. Here's one man who doesn't turn his back when genocide happens.
This may be the most all over the place movies of recent years that if it wasn't for the fact that it's based off a real life story would be as toxic as nuclear waste. As at its heart there's a morality tale here quite unlike any other, and if it wasn't so confused it could be considered almost dangerous. For the fact remains that fighting fire with fire only leads to lots and lots of burnt dead people. This wants to be part drama/part intense action, but the drama side lacks true depth and the action is too badly shot to have any lasting impact, though this isn't a bad film by any means. Butler is well cast as a born again ex crook who takes no bull, and there's hardly a dull moment throughout with something always just around the corner. Overall a watchable time passer with a fair amount of meat on the bones, but it's not quite all there.
