Synopsis

Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance in this explosive, action-packed story of an inspiring real-life hero. Butler stars as Sam Childers, a drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing spiritual transformation and makes a life-changing decision to travel to war-torn East Africa. After witnessing unspeakable horrors faced by innocent children, he vows to save them at any cost, including his own safety. Childers begins waging a relentless battle against the territory’s renegade militia, leading harrowing missions behind enemy lines to rescue kidnapped orphans and restore peace to their lives – and eventually his own.

Reviews

Tom Long Detroit News | September 30, 2011

What looks on the surface to be yet another inspiring story of one man's salvation turns out to be instead both an examination of modern atrocity and a rethinking of the burden/beauty of belief.

Colin Covert Minneapolis Star Tribune | September 30, 2011

What a surprise. Its grindhouse title notwithstanding, "Machine Gun Preacher" is a genuine drama.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | September 29, 2011

If nothing else, Machine Gun Preacher drives home the inhumanity of the situation far better than any two-minute evening news segment can.

Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic | September 29, 2011

Butler acts the role within an inch of its life.

Richard Roeper Richard Roeper.com | September 23, 2011

It's probably Gerard Butler's best and most complete performance to date in one of the more inspirational stories of the year.
