Bible Thumped
13 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Starts out as your standard 1930's gangster bio-pic,in the style of 'Bonnie & Clyde,' but on a vastly reduced budget. They could just about afford to have a couple of period era cars and clothing but that's about it for the small cast.

Phil Thatcher is one of a poor God fearing family who goes off the rails and ends up in reform school, then prison labour camps. Along the way he befriends fellow cons who turn up again and again at the various jails he gets sent to. So far, so average crime drama,acting strictly amateur hour. Then halfway through the short sixty minutes, he finds God and it's suddenly a religious tract! One minute it's 'Pretty Boy Floyd' and then it's 'Songs of Praise!'

It then becomes obvious this was filmed by a Christian group with the message that crime doesn't pay and salvation comes with the Lord and Jesus. Seems that Phil Thatcher is actually a real person that we see at the end when the film finishes and he's in Church preaching at some young folks.

Nothing wrong with that, although,I'm not a believer myself but I was expecting a crime drama and not some bible thumping. So, really one more for God botherers rather than gangster film fans.
