Soldier of Destiny
ages 12 and over
We have here a faith-based movie which nicely demonstrates the power of sacrifice in the name of love. Samuel Quincy (Merle Shenk) gives his life for fellow Marine Tyler Ferguson (nicely played by Stephen Preston). Tyler promised to let Quincy's sister Rachel know if anything happened to him. He travels to meet her and meets her husband as well, a pastor named JJay Harley (Jonathan Pienar). Rachel (Claire Winters) is grateful to Tyler despite the bad news.
Tyler is faced with making a decision, accepting Christ just as his friend Quincy had. Ironically he is soon faced with a similar test of faith, the chance to save lives by giving his own.
This inspirational story features good guys, bad guys (including a scavenging leader named Maroba) and the power of sacrificial love. We are pleased to award this movie our Family Approved Seal for ages twelve plus. This one speaks to the heart.
Violence: A scene which is later repeated showing a mine explosion and a man dies and although his death is not seen some red in the explosion seems to be blood; men are scavengers and take food and supplies from people; knife held to man's throat; a little blood seen on a man; man is shot and a little blood seen on front of shirt; a man washes and we see bloody water; a man holds a rifle on bad guys who are threatening and stealing from a woman; a church is set on fire; a man has rifles pointed at him.
Nudity: Shirtless man.
Other: Death and grief.
