First of all I would like to say that I am an avid follower of the history of Catholicism. I believe the history of the Catholic church is actually an interesting and thought provoking subject. This movie is very well done. The way that it was made was very interesting. I was very happy with the way that the movie was made. I would recommend this movie to anybody who likes documentaries. There are many people who have complained about this movie, I would recommend this movie to anybody that wants to watch something a little different from what they are used to.

The Fighting Preacher is a wonderful movie. The direction by John Hamburg is amazing, as always. He captures the grit and determination of the priest's mission with such realism that you're never in doubt that you're watching the same priest for the next 20 years. Peter Berg, who I never thought was a great director, really is the shining light in this movie. He writes a very strong script with every line being brilliant, especially the ending. The story, when put in perspective, is brilliant. The film centers on an ex-priest's transformation from a tortured man to a man who has become a powerful preacher who puts his faith and his people before his own desires and wants. The casting of Jack Wahlberg is spot on. He is truly the catalyst of the story, his first line of the film. I think that the only flaw in this film is the script. The screenplay by Jack Wahlberg is far from perfect. While the rest of the film is just excellent, the screenplay suffers from the same problem as the rest of the film: the characters are just not interesting enough to carry the story, which makes the story feel very empty. As a result, the audience really feels like they're watching a film made by the priest himself, which hurts the film from the start. Also, I felt that the film was a little bit slow in the beginning. The film is slow and boring and I felt that the pace should have been faster. The other major flaw in the film is the ending. The ending was great. I liked it, but it left me feeling unsatisfied. I was very happy with the film overall. Overall, the film is a brilliant film that is good for a couple of laughs, and I highly recommend it.

I watched this movie and I was shocked. I was worried that I had seen an average movie. Boy was I wrong. I am a movie buff. I am a big fan of Bruce Lee and believe that Bruce Lee was a great martial artist. I am a huge fan of Jackie Chan. I can't believe that a movie like this was made. This movie will make you laugh and cry. There is something for everyone. I recommend this movie to everyone.

This is a great movie about the tragedy of a single story. Great acting, directing, story, and above all the humor. It is what it is not a masterpiece, but it is great. If you haven't seen it yet you should watch it. You will not be disappointed.

This is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. A movie I would recommend to anyone. The actors were all excellent. It was a very strong Christian movie and the message is one that needs to be seen by all. My kids and I both loved it. The movie had a message of life, death, and being in the Spirit. It also had a message of being on the side of righteousness. The message was very powerful. I highly recommend it. My mother is also a Christian and would recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a Christian movie to watch. It's a must see for any Christian.

I just watched the movie and I loved it! I love it because it's not a drama, it's a light movie, it has lots of funny scenes and it's very well directed. I think the movie is going to be a hit in the future. I don't know why it didn't get the recognition it deserves. The main actor is good and that's the main reason why I recommend this movie. Don't miss it.

Might have enjoyed this film more if I was in my 20s, but, for some reason, I was only 12 when I saw it and it's not like I'm so bad a kid now that I can't relate to any of the characters, so I guess I didn't really care. The dialogue is excellent and the cast is fantastic. John Travolta's character is great as the preacher, and Tim Blake Nelson is also great as the hero, but I didn't think that Harry Belafonte did much, although he was good in "The Last Picture Show". I enjoyed "Passion of the Christ" and "The Passion of the Christ" a lot, but this one is my favorite. The story is very well-written, although the first half is a little boring and you don't really know how it's going to end, but I have to say that it's very exciting. This movie really inspires you, so you can't help but to keep on watching it to the end.

I was a little hesitant at first. I am not a Christian, but I do not consider myself to be an atheist either. So I had not given this film a chance. I was pleasantly surprised, and I am now the proud owner of two copies of the movie. It is by far the best film I have seen in a long time. It is well written, beautifully acted, and the storyline is engaging and not predictable. I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a film that is genuinely engaging and meaningful. It is an honest film about the creation of the world, and the desire to see that the earth be a better place. The plot is simple but incredibly satisfying. It is a lesson for us all, one that we can all learn from.

I watched this movie the other night, and was very happy that I did. It's a great movie, and I am very happy that I had the chance to watch it. It's funny, and I enjoyed the fight scenes. The cast was very good, the cinematography was very good, and the script was very good. It was a very good movie, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys good movies. It is a great movie, and I hope that everyone sees this movie, and that it gets a good rating.

With all the hype that surrounded the "Fighting Preacher" the critics, the press, and the public didn't seem to care for this movie. I guess they were all just in the wrong place at the wrong time. The critics never got into this film, the press thought it was a laugh, the public didn't see the humor. With this movie I had a much better time. The acting was superb, especially of the Latino cast, the plot was believable, and the plot twists were very clever. I found myself drawn into the story, laughing with the actors, and actually feeling sorry for them. In the end I really liked this movie, and I think that people need to see it. I hope the people who didn't like it see it and agree with me. You should see it, and if you like it, go see it again. You won't be disappointed.

The Fighting Preacher was one of the most entertaining films I've ever seen. The movie was filmed in 1970 and gives you an interesting look into the corrupt Mexican drug cartel. The movie has great performances and the story line kept me interested throughout the movie. The characters are quite well developed and you really get to know them and like them. The movie is very well written, and the cinematography and music is very well done. The Fighting Preacher is one of those movies that you can watch over and over again. The Fighting Preacher is a film that has a lot of potential and really is an excellent film. I give the Fighting Preacher a 10/10.

I am not religious, but this movie is a powerful statement on the way the church does not understand God's design for man, and how he does not judge the poor, but rather takes care of the sick, the infirm, and the poor. God has created man and women as he intended. He wants to make sure that everyone in the world has a good life, and this movie shows that very well. This movie is a must see, and a reminder of what it means to be a good person. I highly recommend it!

This movie was great. I have seen it a few times and it is still great. The acting was great, the story was awesome. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a movie that takes a lot of guts and honesty and really shows the true meaning of faith. This movie shows the truth of what it means to be an apostle. This movie shows the message of the Lord Jesus and how he has come to the earth and given it to the world and how it was given. I loved the movie. I have seen it a couple of times and will see it again and again. I don't know what else to say but I think this movie is a great message to show people that they need to take the time to understand the Bible and the whole thing. I think it is important for everyone to see this movie and understand the message of the Lord Jesus Christ. The movie is great and I am sure it will be on the best movies of all time list for years to come.

This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat. Some people may be disappointed that the plot is completely different from the book but I think that's what made it such a great movie. This movie is a real roller coaster of a movie that is almost impossible to take the whole way through. The acting is great and it's also very surprising how many movie stars ended up in this movie. For a non-actor, the acting is excellent. If you're a fan of Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee, this is a movie you must see. You can't help but to feel for the characters as well as for Jackie Chan. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good story and a great story. I give this movie 10 stars out of 10. This is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen.

I just got back from the cinema and the film itself is amazing. The script is great and all the cast are brilliant. The music is amazing and the story is gripping and makes you want to go on with the film. The film is based on a book which has been adapted into a good film and I'm glad the story was changed to fit into a 2 hours film. My friend's comments were correct, the people who paid to see this film are extremely dedicated and good at what they do and they will be disappointed when it comes out in DVD. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good film. The film itself is amazing and will take you on an emotional roller-coaster.

Hilary Swank stars as the title character, a young woman who decides to take on a quest to eradicate the white man's legacy. Her journey begins with her journey through the Mexican Revolution of the 1960s, which would have helped her in her mission, and goes through the Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam, and all the wars that have followed. We follow her as she makes her way to the African American Museum in Baltimore to fight back against racism. Along the way, she is met by a very unexpected person who is willing to help her, and as she travels through a nation of poverty, greed, and hatred, she discovers that not all is what it seems. Filmed in Chicago and Montreal, the film is well crafted, with a dark feel, and a real sense of emotion. It is very well-acted, with Swank portraying the title character with a great deal of grace and vulnerability. The music is also a strong part of the film, as it adds to the sense of sadness and realism that the film brings. The message of the film is both hopeful and realistic. It is very well-done, and it is a great way to spend an afternoon. Definitely a film to see.

This film is so refreshing. It is not the typical movie that most people associate with Hollywood. It is not the typical action flick. It is a story about Jesus. I could not be more proud of this movie. I really like this movie, and I hope you do too.

I have watched this movie over 2 times and I just got back from the cinema and just couldn't stop laughing. The story is about an ex-priest who is now in prison after being convicted of practicing witchcraft. The movie has a lot of funny scenes that are really well done and it is really good. I was not expecting that the movie would be so funny and I didn't even expect to see all the famous actors from the movies. The acting is very good, but it is the most important thing in this movie. The actors really give a good performance and they make you laugh all the time. I really recommend this movie and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for reading and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did. Cheers

This film is so much more than the film. I've never seen a movie that has made me cry so much. When i watched it i was so confused, confused, confused. I've never cried in a movie. I've cried during a movie, but not this much. It was like a movie that was over a year old, and i cried for two hours straight. I don't know if it was the love of the story, but it made me cry. This film is one of the best films i've ever seen. The acting was so good. I'm sure they were all happy, because they were in love with each other. There's no words to describe this film. I'd give this film a 10, but i'm not allowed to. It's a masterpiece. This is my favorite film. I never watch a film twice, i think this film is so special.

I just had to add my own comment to the film, a true masterpiece. A true masterpiece. I cannot believe that this movie has never gotten the attention it deserves. I went to see it in the theater with my boyfriend, who had no idea what the movie was about. I thought the movie was absolutely outstanding. The movie is about a preacher named Cal (played by Kevin Spacey) who was made a preacher after his father died. He doesn't understand why, but he is convinced that God has changed him and will be with him forever. After being seduced by one of his female followers, he begins to hear voices in his head telling him to take over his role as the leader of a town. He starts to get drunk, loses his job, gets involved with a woman named Marisa (played by Charlize Theron), and also meets the terrifying Penny (played by Selma Blair) who has to defend her son from the evil men. What follows is a beautifully told story about redemption. I think this movie will be nominated for an Oscar. The acting is phenomenal. Kevin Spacey deserves a nomination, especially for the role of Cal. His character is so interesting and believable. He has to deal with being a preacher and a father, dealing with a woman who has to protect her son from an evil woman. I have to admit that the character of Penny was very compelling. I thought that she was the most interesting character in the entire movie. Selma Blair was great too. She plays a strong woman who is in love with a man who is never really there for her. She was great in this movie, and she deserved to win an Oscar. I don't think this movie is for everyone. I think it is very original and original. It is not the kind of movie that is easy to understand, but I think it's one that is very well made. I think that Kevin Spacey is one of the best actors in the world. His role in this movie was very unique, and he played it brilliantly. This is the type of movie that I think people will love. I think that it is a masterpiece and I am very happy that it was made. I am also very happy that I was able to see this movie in theaters. I highly recommend it. I give this movie a 10/10.

What can I say about this movie? I am blown away by the beautiful cinematography, the story and the acting. The movie is the most original and creative I have ever seen. The story is very meaningful and the casting was spot on. It is a great look into the life of a preacher and the struggles he goes through to bring salvation to the people of the country. All of the actors were amazing and were able to bring so much life to their characters. I can not think of one flaw in this movie. The costumes were incredible, the music was amazing, the cinematography was superb, the script was really well written. The message is pretty clear but that doesn't take away from the movie. I hope that more movies come out that are so beautifully shot and well written. If you have not seen it you should.

I loved this movie! It's one of my favorite movies ever, and I'm a big fan of Denis Leary. This is one of his best movies, and I can't say enough about how great this movie is! I'm not a Christian, but it's a great movie! It's an honest and sweet story of a man who is fighting against the powers that be in order to help the people of his church. The acting is fantastic, and it's definitely a movie that everyone should see! I think that this movie is definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen! I give this movie 10 out of 10! I highly recommend this movie!

I first saw this movie as a kid, and I was hooked. I love this movie. I have watched it many times since, and it always stays with me. The acting is great, the story is great, and it really gives the viewer an insight to the life of Jesus. The movie is more about Jesus, and how he taught us. It is a movie that will stay with you for years. I love it. It is a great movie.
