rebels without a narrative
13 August 2012 | by (Long Island) – See all my reviews

A truly tedious exercise, this film follows a ragtag group of armed, persecuted Christians, as they meander through the countryside. Their persecution isn't depicted on screen, except for an occasional bullet flying out of nowhere. These Christians are very rough characters and their repartee is far from scintillating. The film can hardly be said to have a story or any serious acting. There are some good shots of pastoral locations, which is why I didn't give this a lower rating. Still, with few thoughts, few events and few characters, I think it would take more than some good shots to salvage this work, although I confess I'm at a loss to say what might have done the trick. I was astonished when I saw the runtime listed--I could have sworn it had lasted a good three hours.
