Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance in this explosive, action-packed story of an inspiring real-life hero. Butler stars as Sam Childers, a drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing spiritual transformation and makes a life-changing decision to travel to war-torn East Africa. After witnessing unspeakable horrors faced by innocent children, he vows to save them at any cost, including his own safety. Childers begins waging a relentless battle against the territory's renegade militia, leading harrowing missions behind enemy lines to rescue kidnapped orphans and restore peace to their lives - and eventually his own.

More glory than gun
Bought this movie expecting it to be a complete action packed entertainer, but......the story of Sam Childers will inspire one and all. Yes there are guns, yes there is blood, but then there is innocence, and more of all hope. This real life adaptation made me realize how gifted my life is . In the end you would want to salute the hero who has fought and is still fighting the demons this world has to offer. May glory be to the lord.
