Machine Gun Preacher is the inspirational true story of Sam Childers; 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. Gerard Butler delivers a searing performance as Childers; the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster's moving story of violence and redemption. When ex-biker-gang member Sam Childers (Butler) makes the life-changing decision to go to East Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war; he is outraged by the unspeakable horrors faced by the region's vulnerable populace; especially the children. Ignoring the warnings of more experienced aide workers; Sam breaks ground for an orphanage where it's most needed in the middle of territory controlled by the brutal Lord's Resistance Army (LRA); a renegade militia that forces youngsters to become soldiers before they even reach their teens. But for Sam; it is not enough to shelter the LRA's intended victims. Determined to save as many as possible; he leads armed missions deep into enemy territory to retrieve kidnapped children; restoring peace to their lives and eventually his own. The explosive; real-life tale of a man who has rescued over a thousand orphans from starvation; disease and enslavement; Machine Gun Preacher also stars Michelle Monaghan and Kathy Baker.

Excellent movie for those that like the story of someone who hits bottom, but then fights their way back. And to Sam, the world needs more people like you, Fearless and unshaken from their cause. That is how change happens.
Gerard Butler nailed it. His eyes, his expressions within his eyes.... I am not sure anyone else could have done this part. Or at least done it justice. The viewer can feel his pain, happiness, rage, love, and sacrifice. The viewer can also feel the stress it places on his family.
This is a real movie, it is gritty and real. The children will make your tears flow and your heart sink. The love the man showed for them will make your heart want to do more to help. I really recommend this movie if you are a Christian or not, if you care about the children in Africa or not.
