Machine Gun Preacher (2011)


Machine Gun Preacher is a 2011 American biographical action drama film[3] directed by Marc Forster and starring Gerard Butler, Michelle Monaghan, and Michael Shannon. It tells the story of Sam Childers, a former gang biker turned preacher, and his efforts to protect, in collaboration with the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA), the children of South Sudan from the atrocities of Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). The screenplay by Jason Keller was adapted from Childers' book Another Man's War[4] and Ian Urbina's Vanity Fair article "Get Kony".[5]

They may not be too many films with a title which conjures an image so different from the movie we get. While MACHINE GUN PREACHER may sound like a B-movie from the 70s, it is actually a based-on-a-true-story biopic about a born again Christian who becomes a savior to orphans in war-torn Sudan. And while, yes, he does pick up a machine gun and he does indeed preach, this is much more a dramatic thriller than an action film.

Film opzich is wel avondvullend...denk ik. Ik wilde na 90 minuten afhaken omdat het reli-gedoe me te erg werd. Gerard Butler is miss geschikt voor een "preacher",maar absoluut ongeschikt voor een "machine gun preacher". Mist 'ie toch de spierbundels voor. 59ce067264
