Movie Review: Free Burma RangersQuick Plot Summary: Exciting and encouraging film using predominantly real-life footage to tell its true story of a medical missionary family in Burma and Iraq.
Suggested Ages: 13+
"Free Burma Rangers" is a unique film that while at first glance just seems like another documentary, it becomes clear once you get into it that it is much more than that. This tells the true story of a former U.S. Special Forces soldier who, along with his wife and children, moved to war-torn Burma to help the people there. What they started grew into a large group called Free Burma Rangers. Eventually they branched out to Iraq to help during the fighting there.
This uses plenty of actual real-life footage to tell its story. The power of this film is that it really shows what one person who steps out in faith with God can do to change many lives. This is a very encouraging film that by the end will have you evaluating your own life and your role on this planet.
Be advised this is a PG-13 type film and there is real-life violence and heartwrenching scenes (and if I recall correctly, even a few cuss words). Thus the appropriateness of this film is probably teens and up.
