evenings ridding the streets of crime with his massive machine gun. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Well, that’s not exactly what Machine Gun Preacher is about. No, this film actually has a story and a purpose.<p></p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;"><span> </span>It tells the true life story of Sam Childers (Gerard Butler), a former gang member and criminal who turned towards God and took it upon himself to defend children in Sudan from the terrorizing forces of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Building an orphanage in the middle of a civil warzone is no easy task as it will test every last ounce of faith Sam has.<p></p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;">The film starts out with Sam before he met God, showing how crazy and criminal his life was before his epiphany. That’s good and all but the transition from evil Sam to good Sam is a little ridiculous. One evening his shooting up with his best friend and stabbing a homeless guy, and then the next morning he’s in church getting baptized. It’s too quick of a change, making it difficult to believe that this gang member has truly turned a new leaf.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;"><p></p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal rtecenter"><img height="333" width="500" alt="Gerard Butler Heals in Machine Gun Preacher" src="http://static.moviefanatic.com/images/gallery/gerard-butler-heals-in-machine-gun-preacher_500x333.jpg" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;">Once Sam travels to Sudan, that’s when things start to become intense. Machine Gun Preacher is a rollercoaster of emotions that cover the entire spectrum from happy to sad to disgust. The film sheds light on a subject that isn’t really covered much in today’s society. It’s a conflict that’s still continuing to this day in fact. <p></p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;">There are plenty of disturbing scenes in the film, many of which involve the slaughter of innocent children. At times it can be difficult to believe that it’s actually based on a true story and is not just from the imagination of a screenwriter. It does make you wonder if they went a little overboard with some of the characters, specifically Sam, and make them appear larger than life. <p></p></span></p> <p>Machine Gun Preacher has its ups and downs but ends on a high note. You’ll be enraptured by the Sudan and all the children who inhabit Sam’s orphanage. Each one will no doubt bring a smile to your face.</p> <p><a href="http://www.twitter.com/Majiesto">Follow me on Twitter @Majiesto</a></p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-talents field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Talent(s):&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/gerard-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Gerard Butler</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/michelle-monaghan" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Michelle Monaghan</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/michael-shannon" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Michael Shannon</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/marc-forster" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Marc Forster</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-starring field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Starring:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/gerard-butler" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Gerard Butler</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/talents/michelle-monaghan" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Michelle Monaghan</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/talents/michael-shannon" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Michael Shannon</a></div></div></div> Sat, 24 Sep 2011 01:09:40 +0000 Matt Rodriguez 8338 at http://shakefire.com http://shakefire.com/review/machine-gun-preacher#comments Machine Gun Preacher http://shakefire.com/movie/machine-gun-preacher <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="text-decoration: none;">Machine Gun Preacher sounds like some B-movie action hero who spends his days preaching in church and his evenings ridding the streets of crime with his massive machine gun. Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? Well, that’s not exactly what Machine Gun Preacher is about. No, this film actually has a story and a purpose.<p></p></span></p> </div></div></div><h1 id="page-title">Machine Gun Preacher</h1><div class="field field-name-field-tags

Brooks, author of ace zombie pandemic faux-history World War Z, is at Comic-Con and revealed to MTV that Brad Pitt has been confirmed to star in the film adaptation of his globe-trotting work. Yes, such news has been rumoured ever since Pitt's production company, Plan B, won the rights to the movie, but according to Brooks it's now set in stone.</p> <p>The book's story is told through a series of first-person accounts gathered by an unnamed researcher looking into the origins, spread and scope of a zombie pandemic that killed off (or rather un-killed off) most of the world's population. That structure's going to have to be changed for the film, of course, or the only thing the lead character would do is sit and nod occasionally between stories. Still, let's hope they keep some of the best bits.</p> <p>The script has been written by J. Michael Straczynski (of Babylon 5 and Changeling fame) and rewritten by Matthew Michael Carnahan (State of Play, The Kingdom). Marc Forster is, of course, still planning to direct. Roll on the outbreak of War, we say. </p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-talents field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div
