Biography, Drama
How could this movie be anything but silly? White elephant herder Marc Forster, director of Kite Runner and Quantum of Solace, takes us into darkest Western Pennsylvania and brightest Southern Sudan for the histrionic true-ish story of Sam Childers (bluntly portrayed by Gerard Butler), an ex-con biker and drug dealer who gets religion and then proceeds to spend all his time and money rescuing threatened Sudanese children from warlords — in person, with guns blazing. He's a born-again Christian Rambo, and Jason Keller's screenplay is just as dumb and pulpy as Forster's lumpy direction. Going to waste in the supporting cast are Michael Shannon, Michelle Monaghan, and Souleymane Sy Savane. (123 min.)
