You know what's worse than a bad movie? A bad movie with good actors who are trying desperately to tell a story.
I saw the movie and it's possibly the worst movie I've seen in my life which is sad because I like James Remar and Bruce Davison. I think they're good actors. Not the best out there but they're decent.
What I got was one of the most unrealistic, disjointed movies I've ever had the misfortune of seeing. Nothing here makes any sense. A Senator, played by Davison, wants to introduce a bill that will limit the Freedom of Speech of Christians. Not anybody else, just Christians and they will be unable to say that they know "the truth". Forget for a moment that such a thing could never happen due to the First Amendment. This is a fantasy movie after all.
But we have James Remar as an evangelist who opposes this and Bruce Davison then frames him with the rape and murder of a teenage girl in order to silence him.
What proceeds is really... incomprehensible. I tried to understand the motivations beyond just, "Christian good, non-Christian bad" but that's all I was able to get from it.
If you're a die hard right wing Christian fundamentalist then this is right up your alley. It's a good VS evil story that plays right into your paranoia. This movie was literally made for you.
If you're anybody else, I'd give this a pass.
Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in the States. When a U.S. Senator and Luther's own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed. Out on personal recognizance, Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth. And suddenly a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with, or profiting from, the girl's murder. It's a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire American Christian community.
