I was searching for another Christian movie title recently, because of my movie group. I have loved many titles in the past, and I’ve always wanted to find Christian based movies which are really good. When I say really good, it’s meaning it has good acting, a great story, and a theologically accurate message. At some point during my search, I saw the trailer to this online and I thought it looked pretty funny. In addition, the concept just looked very promising because of its uniqueness.
Rogue Saints, to be very simplistic is a Christian version of The Lady Killers. To be a bit more specific though, Rogue Saints concerns two guys who have been friends since childhood: Nick and Dylan. Nick and Dylan catch up online one day about how their lives are going, and suddenly remember a story they heard back when they were kids. 30 years ago, a rich old woman named Mother Wright planned to hide a large diamond underneath her favorite church as her way of giving it back to Jesus. Dylan and Nick, both not Christians, decide they want to tunnel underneath this church and steal the diamond. However, in order to do that they have to volunteer their services to the church as janitors and pretend they’re Christians; while digging for the diamond. Will they find something of great value? And will the people of that church impact their lives?
Rogue Saints is a very good film. This is the first Christian movie I’ve seen which involves a criminal operation, and after seeing how well this did I’d love to see more films like this. I thought at times this was funny, especially when parodying certain church goers (which is not meant to be taken seriously), but then there were also more serious moments which gave the characters strong detail in addition to pointing out how important it is to be apart of God’s Family. The story was well written, the effects and video quality were also very good, and the acting for the most part was great. The only downside to this was that I was able to predict much of it, but nevertheless this is a movie I’m glad to have apart of my Christian movie collection and hope to see more movies like this.
Movie Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
