This Is Why There Are No More Good Christian Action Movies Anymore

This is why there are no more good Christian action Movies.

Well, to kick things off I’ll give you three reasons:

  1. Christians desire to create perfect characters with perfect lives, who have no real-life issues.

  2. Christians are afraid of taking on big bad Hollywood.

  3. There are no good villains anymore, like the ones you really hate, the really bad guys.

We are going to talk about all of that in this article, but in no particular order so you will have to read all the way through to hear my conclusions. Hope you like them and comment below :-)

So here’s the deal, Christians have the money, the numbers, abs the desire to see awesome films. Let’s face it after Covid all of us are probably tired is of streaming Netflix and Disney +. If the 3 Star Wars movies are any indication that we are in desperate need of some fresh new content, then I don’t know what is. So if you’re Christian or just somebody who likes good wholesome movies you and I have to ask the question why aren’t there any good Christian action movies?

With that pressing question let’s dive in shall we.

Stop Trying To Create Perfect People with Perfect Lives

You and I all have our action favorites everything from The Patriot, to Gladiator, to Braveheart oh my gosh Braveheart what a masterpiece, God bless Mel Gibson am I right!!!



Now before you go on criticizing say something like “hey wait a minute... not a film you mentioned was a Christian movie“, Heck even Braveheart is questionable in regards to moral continuity. Yes, yes, yes I know but we have to ask ourselves the question why is it that as Christians we love those kinds of movies? Now since you were asking the question, I will go ahead and answer it for you, I hope you will see the wisdom and some amazing comments below.

The truth is each of the heroes within these amazing epic action stories contains a few very simple elements. One each of these heroes was fighting for something greater than himself, two he was driven into circumstances greater than his own personal world that was created out of some sort of tragedy, and finally number three and perhaps one of the biggest reasons we love these movies is each of these movies has an exceptionally strong villain.

I mean think about it, we hate Edward the Longshanks, what a jerk right? And what about the Colonial from “The Patriot”, He shot Benjamin Martin’s son in the back, Who does that? What A-whole!!!

OK enough about that rant, I hope you were beginning to see my point. Each of the heroes from these stories had to overcome tremendous odds, odds which were born out of tragedy. And instead of feeling sorry for themselves, becoming bitter, or playing the blame game, each of these heroes decided to do something to change their current circumstances. It doesn’t mean they were perfect, far from it, heck most of these characters started out with the primary motivation of vengeance. If any of you good Christian followers read the Bible vengeance is not a Godly motivation. Even with their flaws, we love them!!!

Just look at Maximus from the Gladiator, what a badass, excuse my French ladies and gentlemen but it’s true, I’m speaking from a place of flaws and Jesus still loves me, but yes This guy had the worst luck ever!!!

His wife and child get murdered, his best friends betray him, and on top of all of that, he gets sold as a slave to be a gladiator. Now I know you and I think gladiators are awesome, but trust me it’s not the type of job profession that has a great benefits plan. If you were a gladiator you were literally been sentenced to death, kill, or be killed, it is Savage. Yet even in the midst of face seen some of life‘s worst of worst challenges he chooses to live a free life even as a prisoner, who does that remind you of? A.k.a. Jesus and the disciples maybe ... hint, hint nod, nod.

My favorite part of the movie by far is in this link right here!!!
