Machine Gun Preacher 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
 
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.
 



Sadly when I get notice of an upcoming movie, it often times hasn't been rated yet. This movie is rated R. For the most part we shy away from R movies. I really enjoy Gerard Butler and his acting and the message seemed to be one we would enjoy. Hubby loves the action packed shows and if that was what gave it an R I was ok with that. Unfortunately within the first 5 minutes of the show they said the F word more than a dozen times, giving it an instant Reject status in our home... bummer. I would have hoped a movie with the word preacher in it would have been a little less vulgar.

  1. this movie was a great movie i know the beginning is bad but it supposed to be it shows that he was in a bad place with drugs and alcohol and jail. did you watch the whole thing? i dont like swearing myself but with a movie title like that and him being a biker i already expected it to be a bit sweary. he didnt become a 'preacher' till later after he found God. he wasnt an ordained preacher but he did save a bunch of kids
