  • Is he a hero or a lunatic? He's possibly neither, or possibly a little of both, but this is the problem with making a movie about a real person. show more

  • Machine Gun Preacher has a lot more wrong with it than a bullet-riddled premise. It is yet another iteration of the big, strong white man who comes to save legions of poor anonymous black Africans. show more

  • The failure lies not with the film's director, Marc Forster, nor with its impressive star, Gerard Butler, but with Jason Keller's dreadfully earnest script, which charts the hero's spiritual journey, and his Rambo-esque exploits, without offering a scintilla of mature perspective on his state of mind. show more

    The critics must be blind or anti-religious or something. I don\'t see how they could give this movie a 47%. This was an amazing story that mixes Guns, God, & Government. It was emotional but full of action. This movie has awaken me to the cause. Great flick, highly recommended.
