Sam Childers (Gerald Butler)
His life spiraling out of control from a long addiction to drug and bad choices, Sam Childers undergoes a spiritual transformation. Hearing God’s call, he travels to Africa and is horrified by the atrocities committed against the children of Sudan. It’s no wonder why Hollywood wanted to make a movie based on his remarkable real-life story: who wouldn’t want to cheer on a square-jawed savior who happens to be handy with a rocket-propelled-grenade launcher? And that’s the movie’s big flaw—the distracting emphasis on the action-movie elements diminishes the more compelling humanitarian aspects of his crusade.
