About this movie

Kidnapped while attending a religious conference in the Middle East, American journalist Doug Rawlins (Jim Caviezel, The Passion of the Christ) is a hostage of the Iranian regime on trial for trumped-up charges of espionage. With no help from her State Department connections, Doug's wife Liz (Claudia Karvan, Daybreakers) decides to take matters into her own hands to find her husband and bring him home. Inspired by true events and ripped from today's headlines, Infidel casts light on the plight of the Americans currently held captive in Iran.

This smacks a little bit too much of religion. We need Separation of Church and State for democracy. Faith-based movies make me very wary of just what particular ideology the producers and directors are pushing, now that we have a Supreme Court hell bent on creating a theocracy in the US.

This is an excellent thriller, depicting the real-liffe threat of spiritual-darkness. The review by Deborah Elliot is indicative of the spiritual-blindness that opposes truth under the guise of fear-of-theocracy. Her fear is not based in truth, but in LEFTISM, which has poisoned all ability to reason with fairness and thoughtfulness. Until the rise of LEFTISM (or secular materialism) during the last 50 years, and especially the last 15 years,... America had built the greatest, most-free,... while at the same time most-religious country in human history! It was NOT a theocracy,.. but it was a religious and morality/truth based Constitutional Republic. The Founders knew and stated this truth,... and this film depicts this well, through the main character, his wife, and the Masad-- who loved freedom from dark ideologies. If Deborah wishes to be 'wary' she need only look at the results of NON-BIBLIICAL, secular, godless-ideologies of the last century, and the present secular-culture based on the godless-wickedness, perversion, cruelty, and deceit,.. which is not based on biblical truth,and goodness (trust in Jesus Christ--God's truth and Salvation). The last few minutes of the film reveals which tree (of ideas, beliefs) bares 'good fruit',.... and which tree bares 'corrupt fruit'. Deborah Elliot, which tree are you choosing to eat from? There's a deceitful 'spirit of Anti-Chrst',... a spirit of darkness and fear,.. only overcome by trust in truth of God.

An acting class would have gone a long way here. Really bad acting. A waste if my money. Skip this and find something else to watch.
