Badly acted, film looked like a bad episode of NCIS, pace was too slow, I could go on
The source books are very much like this - particularly the later ones.
Worst film of the year: Machine Gun Preacher hands down.
I didn't think that was bad at all, the religious stuff annoyed me, but the overall film, pretty good, I think he's a a damn good actor anyway
Just one of those odious films where the US values of guns and God trump everything, even when they make things worse (as they appeared to do in real life - the organisations involved asked for all references to them to be removed from the film). It didn't work as a action film, and it was too narcistic and in love with the concept to be critical of the character (everyone else, from his family to the charity worker is seen as self serving and wrong) and it just seemed to be Bulters vanity peice (he was producer as well)- as an actor he makes Russell Crowe look like Olivier - every painful 'emoting' scene he just looks confused. He should just stick to hitting things and grunting.
