Machine Gun Preacher DVD Review

GERARD BUTLER STARS IN THE TRUE STORY OF ONE MAN'S MISSION TO SAVE THE CHILDREN FROM JOSEPH KONY'S LORD'S RESISTANCE ARMY

Meet the Real Sam Childers, Founder of the Angels of East Africa,
Which Arrived Onto Blu-ray and DVD June 5th


Gerard Butler (300) delivers a blazing performance as Sam Childers, the impassioned biker and ex-criminal turned crusader in MACHINE GUN PREACHER from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  From Golden Globe® nominated director Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball), MACHINE GUN PREACHER is the moving true-life story of discovery and redemption as Sam Childers takes up the fights for the children of East Africa and their freedom from Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).

 

MACHINE GUN PREACHER is the inspirational true story of Childers (Butler), a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children in East Africa.  The explosive, real-life tale of a man who has rescued over a thousand orphans from starvation, disease, and enslavement, Machine Gun Preacher is written by Jason Keller (Relativity’s Mirror Mirror) and also stars Michelle Monaghan (Source Code), Golden Globe® winner Kathy Baker (Cold Mountain, Picket Fences), Madeline Carroll (Mr. Popper’s Penguins), Academy Award® nominated Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Souleymane Sy Savane (Damages). Producing is Forster, along with Relativity’s Robbie Brenner, Safady Entertainment’s Gary Safady and Craig Chapman, and GG Filmz’s Deborah Giarratana.
I am happy that I had the opportunity to review machine gun preacher. It was one of the most interesting films I think that I have ever seen. Movies of this kind are hard to find. I can’t quite think of anything to compare it to. When I received the DVD, I knew that I was in for a treat because I have never seen the movie before. I watched the theatrical trailer first, from that moment; I was hooked to this movie.


Very early in the movie, there is a plot twist that sets the theme for the remainder of the film. Gerard Butler assumes the role of Sam. Sam has changed his ways from his violent past and entered a church. His need for something more quickly evolves into something more itself, and he finds himself in Sudan on a mission.


The movie almost does a back flip from its beginning to end. I really enjoyed this righteous take on the price of freedom and justice, and those that help pay it. The transformation of Sam is captured brilliantly by Butler, who has amassed a career of many notable films. Well he can add one more, because Machine Gun Preacher is a movie that he pulled off in spades.
