Christian Role Model

Inspiring example of the realities one faces when following the word and keeping on course despite adversity and staggering obstacles. Amazing hero and role model. Particularly for those with a strong calling of service to others. Not recommended for young children. A mature 12 or 13 year old introspective aware child or perhaps a bit older otherwise. Great Christian based history. May not be of interest to those who would not find this level of commitment and self sacrifice appealing. I was fascinated with his accomplishments and devotion to God and humanity. Vivid possibly disturbing scenes of despair in some characters and slave abuse.

Director fail

Too much cleavage in this movie for me to be able to recommend it to anyone. They really ruined what could have been an awesome movie.

Too much sex
