This brilliant true story is sad, exciting and in some places unnecesary. although this film is based on facts about a man named sam childers who is released from prison and then finds god and helps children in sudan, the part just after he is released from prison is over the top and only serves to set the scene to show off his criminal behaviour so you can see the change from bad guy to good guy, in these parts there are constant uses of the f word and s word aswell as other foul words, an aggresive stabbing, a sex scene, racial abuse, drug and alcohol use and sam threatens his wife because she quits her job as a stripper/pole dancer,but other than this the story sets good morals like fighting for what you believe in,standing up for the needy and doing what is right. the shootouts aren't as violent as you might think (but scenes like medical scenes and 2 scenes when children are killed can get intense and upsetting),sam trys to do whats right except for one part where he flips out and gets a bit objectionable for about 10 minutes ( he does things like threaten his daughter,is horrible to his friend, gets into a bar fight and is unkind to one of the children he has rescued) but he later comes to his senses. also the language eases up and he does a lot of good for his hometown and the children in sudan. I would highly recomed this film to anyone mature enough to cope with this sad but amazing true story.
