in this installment, james kills christians with a machine gun.

Worst. Movie. Ever.

But check out the stud that appears at time code 3:50.

My favorite memory from working on this horrible film as a 1st A.D. was when the director as adamant that some local kids in the far background were "too young, they wouldn't be on Earth after the 'rapture.'"

This attempt a theological (in?)accuracy forced me to sprint across a not-quite-dry river bed while shouting over my shoulder, "fine, but I'm am amillenialist, so you owe me!"

Ah, eschatology humor.

My second favorite moment while filming was when the writer/director's wife walked on the location and found that the city's attempts to divert the flooding river from washing out public roads was actually flooding our future set. She began to pay out lout that God would "stop the hands of the devil." Which basically means, we prayed that the Lord would destroy public property so that their crappy movie could be made.

This is why I love Hollywood so much.

What a handsome guy Ü

Those were, um, some nice electrically charged bullets that guy fired there. Hm. Yup.

You know I have to say, though, that this clip features the highest production values I've probably ever seen on a "Christian" movie.

That might be quietest, most echoey car I've ever seen.

Terrific drama. A*

Interesting the sensitive way you caress the gun before firing it.

Also VERY alert in the back of the car there as they drive off. Good soldier that.

Sadly, Behnnie, you're right. As lame as this is, it might be the best "christian" movie ever made. *sigh*

Sheridan, watch Rambo. He does the same thing, I promise.
