FUCK THIS MOVIE!
Satan is a bit fun in this. He chews the scenery which is all I want in a bad movie, and he does it well. Satan looks like my Uncle. Hi-top fade, fire red Steve Harvey suit and black as hell. They talk while overlooking the Santa Monica Freeway. While I'm on it, fuck the cinematographer! They talk and I can't hear them because I'm sure there's no boom mic used in this flick. Jesus sounds like he was nailed in the back of the head with a bat and yet retained knowledge of the King James bible. Okay, why would he be quoting bible verses verbatim? Jesus was there before the King James bible was written! If anything he'd be speaking Hebrew, hell I'll take Latin or Greek! And he talks so slow. Eeyor and Droopy sound like Twista compared to this guy. How can you be the director and you have no idea you're the weakest link in the movie? In front or behind the camera.
Our first victim is a gangster. I'm sorry I have no names IMDB didn't, neither did this movie. The gangster and his boy are getting ready to kill two dudes on the corner drinking 40s and talking about chicks they boned last night. Christian movie! Also they're wearing winter jackets in L.A weather, why? So before this happens, Satan morphs into the backseat and starts monologuing about...the folly of man? They shoot one guy but miss the other. After we see the gangster and friends celebrate as his boss sits on a car with the license plate that says "Director". Way to go Stelly! Afterward the other non-shot up victim goes to the gangster's house with Satan rooting him on from the backseat again. He kills our gangster and he goes to hell, wait limbo... purgatory? They never say but it looks like a closet with a spotlight and fog machine. There our gangster meets Angel Israel. Oh boy, Angel Israel! Who? Well I looked him up he's an archangel who is more of an representation of God's power. A.I. sends the gangster back to earth at the point just before he fired the shot. He doesn't do it. His buddy asks why not and the gangster doubles back on his lifestyle. After this change of heart, he finds Jesus. HOW?! Furthermore, Jesus cheated!
But it was in the dope fiend story I quit. This is what happens...... Three crackheads, one needle...sounds like one fucked up porn. They were sharing a huge prop syringe. My nieces Dr. McStuffins' syringe is more life like. But they're getting fucked up, on nothing! The plunger on this thing is already all the way down! How hard is it to make brown water! Then they all act happy and excited afterwards. No! Heroin, crack and meth doesn't make you hyper when you shoot it up! With the girl exclaiming "I love drugs!" This scene broke me so bad that I skipped to the end.
Now I skipped some scenes and I maybe wrong but Jesus did nothing in this movie! I shit you not! All he did was walk around L.A. in an all black robe(Enjoy the heat stroke Dale!) praying like some monk!
Our fantastic four make it to the church/community center/someones house and give their testimony. Why!? We've just seen it! This lasts for at least 10 minutes. 10 minutes of monologuing and copying Oprah from The Color Purple! All with the face of Compton Jesus praying overlaid through this scene. And then the movie ends. Hope this movie had a condom on, because I just got screwed!
I get that people do go through things of this nature, but this movie came off more exploitative then helpful. People that go to Christ do it mainly because they need a total life turn around however they get to it. Either by just walking into a church, being raised in one, invited, however they make it.
Helen Baylor's spoken word song "Testimony" is about her life in music surrounded by drugs and destructive lifestyle. Then she talks about her deliverance, and with God given will power she made a turn around. That 10 minute song laps this movie 50 times. That's how that works. Only a fool Pastor, Prophet or churchgoer will tell you God will just fix it. No, it's a combination of the bible, friends/family, but mostly yourself. This movie belittles willpower and says God will do it for you. For that I say go fuck yourself. This movie is beyond bad and offensive. All I can say is if you think this is a good movie that displays the hardships of man and the never ending struggle against Satan and Jesus. If that is you, tell Angel Israel hi for me when God gives you a mulligan for that crack you're smoking!
