Summary: There is in fact an incredible story to be told of Childers' life and of his mission to help children in Sudan. Unfortunately, Machine Gun Preacher is not an incredible film but rather one lacking the emotional pull needed to adequately reflect the work Childers has done on behalf of so many who are...
Summary: Machine Gun Preacher was a fantastic movie with a plot that almost felt like a modern day version of Schindler's List. Now don't get me wrong. In no way am I saying that this film was anywhere near that level.
Summary: I don't see how this movie is rated so low, this movie was amazing yet sad and touching at the same time. Gerald Butler was a great actor chosen for this movie. This movie is actually a true story, they are still alive to this day. It's so hard to see good true movies now-a-days.
Summary: Gritty, gray life. And some red too. The movie wades from deep, murky pond to deep, murky pond. It isn't your typical formulaic, black/white entertainment where the good guys save the day and everything works out. Reality isn't like that.
Summary: I don't know what I was expecting with this movie, but it turned out that it had a very serious message to tell. Gerard Butler actually shows he still has range and talent as Sam Childers, a rough man who finds his calling in helping the people of Sudan and Northern Uganda.
Excerpt: Why this wasn't one of the nominated best films of 2011 i dont know? Then again most of the times the fine people employed at The Academy Of Motion Arts offices don't seem to know their ass from a hole in the ground!
Summary: I found this movie very "preachy" and honestly boring. It picks up in the second half, but the first half is so dreadful, why bother? I thought Gerard Butler did a fine job with what he was given, but what he was given was a shallow cartoonish character, who is not only rather uninteresting but...
Summary: The movie is amazing, on the whole. The beginning is a bit hard to bear, as it's *extremely* vulgar and painful. Although, it is an good representation of what Sam Childers' life used to be like.
Summary: Silly title serious movie based somewhat on a true story , sam childers is a drug taking biker bad boy who after being released from prison and getting involved in a further incident he then finds god in the form of church and ends up going to africa to build a orphanage and save the children of...
Summary: "MACHINE GUN PREACHER" - A very powerful movie. My question is: how many modern American Preachers would actually teach in support of the efforts of San Childers and how many would condemn his methods?
