We should probably set this straight right now; I'm not a believer of God but that does not mean that I don't respect those who do believe. My husband and I had a discussion during this movie about how sometimes it takes that belief for someone to get up and do something they know they should. Like Sam Childers; God saved him, but Sam also saved himself. I think both of those are true and sometimes it just takes that little bit of belief, that little push, from God or a friend or your own beliefs to achieve that thing.
Gerard Butler (Law Abiding Citizen, RocknRolla) and some of the roles he picks have just knocked my socks off with how amazing they are. He has to be one of my favourite leading men right now and this film just proves it.
Besides the amazingness that is Butler, this film also stars Michelle Monaghan (Source Code) as Sam's wife Lynn and Michael Shannon (The Runaways) as Sam's best friend, Donnie. Sam and Lynn established the Machine Gun Preacher Angels of East Africa and you can donate to the appeal or buy a shirt from this link.
Amazing, can't stop thinking about it. Must buy a shirt.... or a well for the kids... or something! Keep up the work Sam, the world needs more people like you!
5 out of 5 happy kids...
