This Made Me Hate Movies
Propaganda films are nothing new. Film has been used as a tool to promote/push ideals on an unsuspecting public practically since the birth of cinema. Whether they be made to warn against the “horrors” of marijuana (Reefer Madness) gain support for the Nazi party (Triumph Of The Will) or serve the Christian agenda (God’s Not Dead) movies are a constant tool for those who wish to not only change the way YOU think, but the way EVERYONE thinks. More often than not, they serve as laughable excuses for films that could only serve to inspire the simplest of simpletons to change their way of thinking, or, as is most often the case, to preach to the choir. The fact that there are those who will change their entire mode of thinking based on any of these films is both disheartening and frightening.
Mercy Rule is a 2014 “film” starring Kirk Cameron (Saving Christmas, Fireproof) and directed by Darren Doane (Who also directed Saving Christmas) The plot concerns the manager of a Waste Disposal site who finds himself in hot water when an environmental lobbyist approaches him, threatening to shut him down to to environmental concerns. What you may find odd about this premise is the decision to cast Cameron as the manager of the dump, and not the lobbyist. Surely, there’s no way they could be making him out to be the good guy, right? Mercy Rule is bloated, inane, and above all, morally reprehensible. It portrays Cameron’s garbage king as a decent family man who’s simply trying to provide for his family. What’s a little irreversible damage to the environment when he’s just trying to feed his family, right? And shame on that nasty, evil environmental lobbyist trying to shut him down. If he shuts him down, he’s shutting down America!! The movie’s ideals are so ass-backwards that I genuinely felt uncomfortable while watching it. It has production values that would make something like Disney’s Cadet Kelly look like The Godfather, and performances that are about as convincing as a Junior High play. The film also suffers greatly from it’s length. It painfully stretches itself to two hours, with sequences involving the lead character’s son playing baseball in slow motion set to irritating and repetitive dub step music. These sequences made for painful viewing, as they gave the impression that the filmmakers had no concept of editing, timing, or even film-making.
What bothers me most, however, is the film’s message. The movie enforces this conceit that environmental journalists, lobbyists and activists are un-American, unscrupulous communists who try to put good, hard-working people out of a job. But the filmmaker’s obvious capitalist, right-wing politics make every single frame a chore to get through. Barely a moment passes when we don’t see the “Protagonists” either spending money or enjoying their luxurious, expensive home. The strong ideals mixed with the absence of any artistic merit whatsoever make viewing this film all the more difficult. What is equally troublesome is Kirk Cameron’s introduction at the beginning of the film, in which he states that he was trying to make “A good, clean and wholesome film with good values that the whole family can enjoy.” (Paraphrasing) Knowing Cameron’s reputation as a religious zealot, I was expecting Christian propaganda not unlike Left Behind, Fireproof, or the already oft-mentioned Saving Christmas. What I ended up getting, was unexpected, and possibly even worse.
This movie is among the most heinous form of torture I can think of. You watch in horror as it stretches itself paper-thin, right before your eyes. If anyone’s mode of thinking was truly changed by this film, I simultaneously scream in anger and weep in distress. The only change it had on my way of thinking was it made me hate movies for two hours. I got my love back shortly enough after. But if it were up to me in that time frame, I would have had the entire history of cinema erased in a heartbeat.
Great family movie!
As a Christian, I’m often a little disappointed by some films that come out labeled as such. Usually the writing is sub-standard and the cast has a handful of people who can act surrounded by folks who have yet to refine the skill.
“Mercy Rule” isn’t just a good Christian movie, it’s a quality movie in general. Kirk Cameron plays the role of John Miller, a business owner, husband, and father of two. Like any decent American boy, his son, Cody is obsessed with baseball. While the elder Miller sees his business under attack by an environmental lobbyist who is trying to regulate the business into the government control, the younger Miller is fighting to see more playing time on the ball field.
In supporting roles, Tim Hawkins plays Miller’s hilarious goof-ball brother, and Bas Rutten is Cody’s odd baseball coach. Both bring humor to an otherwise stressful time in the family’s life.
While it’s entirely plausible that a local government makes a play to take over a recycling center for political reasons, the lobbyist’s character is a bit over the top.
If you’re looking for a family movie, even one that isn’t too preachy, this is a great choice. It’s funny, clean, and teaches the importance of family and not giving up. Some of these other reviews here are clearly people angry about Christianity and famous Christians. While they are entitled to their opinion, I doubt they have watched the movie. Right now it’s available on Netflix, and it’s worth checking out.
