I found this to be an excellent movie and will donate to this
cause. It is terrifying to see what is going on in our world, not only in Sudan but elsewhere. How can one deny there is evil? Innocent children and adults being killed for what?
So very sad! I wish I had an answer. At least the "machinegun preacher" is doing something.

What a great story and movie. Very inspiring. A must watch.

The Hollywood film did it's job of making me aware of this man's inspiring work to help meet the needs of the children of Sudan.

The message meant to get through of "now what will you do", got through to me.

Thank you to all who made this film happen and brought the needs of 'our children' to more hearts and minds. I'm looking forward to the documentary and just got the first book on this continuing story.

Intense, action packed, shocking and heart wrenching. Had my emotions in a whirlwind. Left me in a state of shock and dismay, making me want to donate to his cause.

The best movie I have seen in a long time. The acting was great and believable. It is a very sad movie, definitely not for children. It had me crying several times throughout. It should move you and make you angry at what is going on over there. There may be the word "preacher" in the title and the main character is a Christian, but like someone else said, it is not preachy. In my opinion, this is not actually a Christian movie. This movie makes me happy that there are actually good people out there trying to fight the evil in this world. Highly recommend!!

Truly sad to see the suffering still going on in different parts of the world. Average in entertainment, but a very good story which needs to be told.
