1. The Last African Hero - I’m amazed at the % rotten tomatoes review. iTunes should stop featuring their reviews at the top because in this case, it clearly doesn’t make any sense. This is worth having as a collection for generations of Africans and citizens of any country who do not understand patriotism. It’s a masterpiece and one every African leader and father must watch.
2. Beautifully made historic film! - This movie portrays the true devastation Madiba faced as well as the people, both black and white went through. It shows the harshness of both races and allows for the world to understand the history of South Africa and the impact Nelson Mandela had on the people of South Afruca. It is a great historic film, and everyone should watch it!

1. Wow! These Guys Earned A Million Strava Kudos! - If you like cycling or like watching people triumph over difficult histories this movie is great. Ignore the critics and the nay sayers. Here is their whining in summary, “This movie does not cover the genocide….” Well, that is because this movie is not about the genocide, but about the Rwandan cycling team. Maybe you want to watch a documentary on the Rwandan genocide. However, this movie does give a decent survey of the dark history leading up and through the genocide. “Jock does not go into detail about his jail time.” Well, I’m sure if you cruise the TMZ site or cycling forums (archives, yes, you might have to research) you can find the juicy gossip you are dying to discover. His indictments hit the cycling community pretty hard, and no I, personally, did not need to hear much more about it. I think Jock tells enough of his history and summarizes it clearly by confessing it was a dark time and he was struggling. He confesses to an inappropriate relationship with an year old girl and lists the charges. What more do you need to know? I think it was more than enough if you are familiar with Jock Boyer and the horrific news when it hit. “This documentary only hints at the Tutsies and the Hutus riding together.” Yeah, that is probably done for a reason because Jock does not want the team to be defined by their genocide, but by their cycling accomplishments. Besides ingraining the genocide history into the minds of the riders is probably a bad coaching strategy because the last motivator in building team unity is saying, “Hey, this dude’s family killed your dad. Now help pull him up the next climb.” That is not really going to have a positive team-building effect. This film is about the composition and building the Rwandan cycling team. No, Jock does not want to delve into the genocide. Why you ask? Well, the film does not tell you because it assumes you have an intelligence quotient greater than a newborn ostrich (Sorry, but the critics really got to me on this one). Why focus on what is going to divide the team? His goal was to give Rwanda something to define them instead of a horrific event. I think that was stated somewhere around million times in the movie, but I might be exaggerating its obvious thesis. These riders have been through hell, and the goal of the team was singular: give Rwanda something to be proud of doing. (Ooops, did I just repeat the thesis of the movie again? Sorry, but I couldn’t resist.) This is a movie where a single man who has his baggage rises from the ashes and gives back to a country that needs to have something other than a horrific event define them. He takes his cycling experience and confers upon a group of men an ethic of teamwork that manifests itself in dedicated self-sacrificing-unity among a people who would have been at war just a generation ago. Honestly, I don’t care if they are green martians in the story, the skin color does not matter, but the lessons learned in life from everyone in this story shows the worthwhile effort of a challenge. The Rwandan team is really impressive from where they started to where they ended. The dedicated teamwork at the end of the movie will make you shed a tear. What do I take from this movie as a motivator? I see it as a movie about how one overcomes horrific events despite a very morbid past. If that is a topic that interests you then you will certainly enjoy this movie.
2. Truly Rising - Today the director and two of the cyclists from this film came to my college in Texas to speak to us in recognition of the anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. It was so inspiring to see what they've done with their talent and drive despite the awful things that occurred in their country at the start of their very young lives. I was so blessed just to be in the same room as them. This documentary is extremely up lifting. I hope to see it again soon!!
3. Inspiring Documentary! - I just saw this documentary at Abilene Christian University. I am a mountain biker myself and this documentary has become my new inspiration. I know what it means “when you have to suffer in cycling in order to succeed.” Mountain biking is the hardest sport I have ever tried. I highly recommend this documentary over any other documentary out there!
4. Wonderful movie - I’ve lived in Rwanda, so the subject matter is nothing new to me, and I enjoyed this movie thoroughly. I have found very few movies about post-gencocide Rwanda that are able to acknowledge the effect that the genocide has had on Rwanda, without overstating or understating the relationship of Rwandans to their history. But this movie has done this successfully. It has beautifully articulated the ways in which Rwanda has been shaped, but is not solely defined, by the genocide. It shows the resilience and humanity of the Rwanda people, while also telling a genuinely interesting and relatable story. Very well done, I would recommend it to anyone. If you are interested in learning more about Rwandan history and contemporary culture, this is a great starting point.
5. Wonderful story! But one small flub... - Whether you're into cycling or are just a human being, this is an amazing story, and it will completely envelop you. The one thing I couldn't overlook, though, was the egregious choice to flip one of the interviews - probably for variety in camera angles. It's just awful... That gaff aside, the film is beautiful, and the characters and story are even more so. I highly recommend it!
6. A Must-See, Especially For Those Who Are Driven In Honor Of Those Who've Suffered Before Them - This documentary is well-crafted, and well-told. As someone who re-found a drive to cycle, and honors the suffering myself and others have endured in order for one to have the freedom to go out and do so, this film reminds us that some have truly fought hard for their dreams, and succeeded. Highly Recommended!!!

1. Frightening discovery - I’m going to come out and say it: this film terrified me. It terrified me in the way that a religion that is about how homosexuality is a sin, how sex before marriage is a sin, how condoms are a sin, how much those people whisper in your ear about the word of their god until that person is shaking, sweating, crying, and calling out in tongues on the floor. This is being pushed in Uganda, a place that is such a “dumping ground” for their ideologies, for their religion. So much so that homosexuality is being condemned as criminal and even enough to be killed for. So much that those individuals have to be in constant fear, constant judgment, constant discrimination. This film needed to be made and I give tremendous kudos to the director and those involved for their work because of how much they had to risk their lives to do this and were able to get us this footage. If Jesus Camp didn’t wake up those of religion, perhaps this will, if those that worship god are going to this extreme where they’re taking advantage of a poor country and making it their playground.
2. A Polarizing documentary! - Apparently some wolves with cameras earned the trust of some international Christian workers and the results are interesting. It comes down to what is right in regard to homosexual activity and how we treat those who engage in it. Christianity means truly following and obeying Jesus who is the Word of God. Search the Word of God, the Bible for words like sex and homosexual and you'll quickly discover the real Christian teaching on the topic. False Christianity has been around for centuries. It's not hard to find a false Christian and get him or her to say all kinds of things into the camera. This film devalues Ugandans as puppets of Americans. Not true! They have decided for themselves what is right and wrong. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you." -Jesus in John :- The producers of this documentary can't understand the Spirit of truth that Jesus sent, but not out of any lack of intelligence or ability. It is spiritually discerned. This polarizes people. But the Christ follower should press on in what is right. The film makers' deceit in getting all this footage still didn't result in finding any anti Jesus dirt on the missionaries. Change the background music and you have a pro Christian Gospel missionary film. They report some news that someone who didn't love homosexuals did; some very mean things. But a person who would harm or hate a homosexual is not a mature Christian. I have a great love for those choosing this lifestyle. This Way, this Message, is being shared by all nationalities even in the film so it is not American cultural propaganda. The Gospel is shared in this documentary - if the Apostle Paul were around he would rejoice! Just a generation or two ago Americans were still valuing abstinence which is an excellent option for young people outside of marriage. I work with youth and want the best for them. This film shows Africans railing against US President Obama who just recently said that marriage is between a man and a woman. He has changed. America has changed. Truth has not changed. Watch this film and decide for Jesus who loves everyone and calls all to eternal salvation in Him while preaching "go and sin no more". Or turn the other way. Jesus said "those who are not with me are against me." Still, nothing you do will make God stop loving you. He is love. He gave His Son for your salvation.
3. Homosexuals and liberals attack Christians - This film was well-directed and produced, but I believe it's message is deceptive. There are at least two false messages that are communicated in the film: one, Christians are simply exporting America's cultural wars to another country. This is most certaintly not the motive or source of Christian workers in Uganda. These men and women are motivated by their faith and are consistent in upholding the values of their faith. Two, and what is even more appalling that seeing Christians "haters," is seeing two apparent Christian leaders supporting homosexuality and proclaiming that homosexual advocates are in heaven. One wears and cross and the other's prays in Jesus' name, but neither has a message that is even remotely Christian. This is deceptive. I commend the Christian missionaries for at least being consistent in their faith. I'm sorry that one of the voices in the African church lives and preaches the prosperity gospel, a message which many Christians abhore. I'm also sorry that someone was killed as a result of supporting sexuality--this is murder and is appalling to God. The truth is that the source behind the film lies not in America's evangelical leaders, but with God, Jesus, and the Apostle Paul. They were the ones who condemned homosexuality, not America's evangelical leaders. The latter are simply propagating a message that came many, many years ago. Jesus was the one who said that only through Him can anyone come to God. So if people have a problem with the evangelicals and missionaries depicted in this film, I believe they really need to take it up with God Himself. Based on the angry comments to this film, I really wonder who is spreading a message of hate...
4. Important.... and scary - Was hard to watch at times. Nothing to do with the direction or production, but the subject matter. Out of context many of the scenes could be mistaken as footage from a mental institution - nope, just the evangelicals. I try hard to be sensitive to other people's belief systems, which is hard enough because I don't have a religious bone in my body. But for this particular group/faction, they have stepped over the line from religion to cult in my opinion and they should not be tolerated. It's an important documentary to watch. Difficult for an enlightened human being to bear witness but important to do so none the less. These people are a cancer, a disease.... and it's spreading. Scary.
5. The Heart of The Father - I find this video very insightful. It hurts my heart to see people who call themselves christians supporting a bill that Kills those associated with (lgbt). However, seeing as to how I am apart of the International House of Prayer (ihopkc) I can say with confidence that we have not been portrayed in the fullness of who we are and what we stand by. For one, Lou, is associated with not apart of IHOP and both Lou and all of IHOP agree that the LGBT agenda and those who struggle with this are in need of God's love no more and no less than any one else who struggles with sin. So no we do not support the LGBT agenda but not to the point of death. We love and receive all and desire for them to walk in the fullness of who they where meant to be. We desire first to love them and introduce them to a loving father and then allow the father heart of God to speak true identity over them not a "anti-LGBT" agenda. This video has misconstrued these good mens names and has pushed the film makers own agenda, In wanting recompense for the pain he has dealt with. I being one who has struggled with Homosexuality on and minor level have been accepted and loved by Lou and Ihopkc. I love God and know who I am. Although this video is real life we must not get caught up in the moment and realize that there are people on both sides who are unjust. Likewise, this is only one side of the coin let us take a step back and peer into the lives of those who are making and real day to day change. Those of the LGBT who have been loved into the kingdom of God and those pastors who humble themselves and chose to love and never Judge. I challenge us to share that story..because this is what will encourage us and give us more hope than trying to peer into the lives of those have no voice for themselves.
6. The audacity of these men and women - The audacity of these men and women. They come into a foreign country with no desire to learn from these people who have ancient customs and ways; but, they come to shove their religion and ways down people's throats and claim then less-worthy if they do not agree with them. Wow, what losers these people are. This is a great film showing the horrors of religious nut jobs, that are so very preeminent in our world today. Thank you.
7. Demonizing the Demonized - Another “Western missionaries are responsible for all the evil in developing nations” statement. While there is some excess and disturbing things said by a few so-called “Christian” leaders, the entire Evangelical community is painted with the same broad stroke. By using two Contrarian clerics to narrate his views, Roger Ross Williams fails to allow his demonized subjects to speak what they believe in their own words. Poorly produced documentary.
8. Thank you for this film - Missionaries have been meddling in the lives of people ALL OVER THE WORLD for centuries. Stay home and teach your OWN children about love and acceptance, instead of spreading your hate around to other people's children. Thank you Roger et al for this important film that exposes this disgusting practice - this practice that assumes people don't know how to lead their own lives. LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE. Keep your hatefulness to yourselves........
9. mixed review - it is really sickening how religious people go to other countries and convince those poor people that hell is real and they will go there if they don’t follow a book made by men years ago - them poor children are in a bad situation because of where they are in the word - and now they have to be told they are sinners and should be punished - so sad - if you want to go help people then do so without the religion being involved.
10. Christian hate, this is what they do not want you to see! - American Pastor Scott Lively was the architect of Ugandas ”Kill the Gays” bill! Now the truth is coming out! These people were not taught about the promise of Jesus Christ or the Love of God! They were taught how to hate Gay people by those calling themselves American Christians! Scott Lively also took a city tour through Europe spreading his hate, Ignorance and fear through his ”Christianity”!!!Oh lord, PLEASE protect us from your followers! Bun Dumnezeu să binecuvânteze! Yes, this mpovie is highly recommended! The fact so many Christians hate it should tell you they have been hiding a lot in the Name of God! Please do not think all Christians are like this! Join NALT on Facebook and find a local affirming church in your area! These crimes against humanity need to be reposted far and wide! Make people aware! Gay people are your brothers, sisters, Uncles, Nephews and loved ones! What has been done in the name of God here in Uganda and other places is unfathomable and needs to be brought out into bright light!
11. History Repeating - Director Roger Ross Williams follows a group of missionaries from the US to Uganda and gives the viewer a glimpse of the fundamentalism that is behind a newly signed Anti Homosexuality Law. Unlike "Call me Kuchu", "God Loves Uganda" highlights the need that some Christians have to witness instead the actual plight of sexual minorities. The film is thought provoking and informative without casting a negative light on any of its participants. "God Loves Uganda" is the undisputable fact about what happens when a group of people set out to change the culture of another and it has been relived time and time again.
12. I've been to uganda - It is so truthful!! The number of Christians there working to convert people is appalling. How about help them organize to change their government. What they really need is big government infrastructure- something the religious right in this country is against. But this would ACTUALLY make a
Difference in so many peoples lives and would save lives as well. But no- we want to push BELIEFS and a magic mystery man in the sky that will change these peoples lives, when in fact only a huge change in the government will actually change the lives of Ugandans. I'm ashamed of the religious right who are preying on these poor uneducated people like this.
13. Faith is Larger than Hate - It perfectly reflects both sides of faith. First, the business of faith that is so often exported into Uganda, touted by well meaning, manipulated youths and local leaders corrupted by politics and hate. Then from within Uganda, a spiritual movement full of love and acceptance who refuse to bow to danger while speaking for Uganda's most vulnerable minorities. A truly beautiful and alarming call to action for both faithful and secular human rights defenders.
14. Great Movie which reveals the Truth - This movie does a great job revealing to its audience what horrible actions anti-gay individuals and anti-gay groups are taking against LGBT people in Uganda. This movie is not anti-Christian either. I am a Christian and this movie simply exposes the atrocious behavior of the anti-gay agenda. The anti-gay people who claim they are Christians, are not truly Christian. Christians would no say or do the things the people in this movie do. Christians do not support criminalizing homosexuality. Christians do not support throwing LGBT in prison or sentencing them to death. Christians love their LGBT brothers and sisters and support their partners and their families. These anti-gay people hate us Christians who do not believe homosexuality is a sin and who support marriage for same-sex couples. The laws in Uganda against homosexuality also criminalize those who help homosexuals live their lives as who they are. Uganda's laws will throw Christians who try to help LGBT people in prison. Watch the movie for yourself. We may feel ashamed that these people who call themselves Christians are doing horrible things and saying horrible things about LGBT people, but that doesn't make this movie anti-Christians. It simply opens the eyes of all Christians as to the horrible things these anti-gay groups are doing in the name of Christianity.
15. A Must See Film!!! - A wonderful documentary detailing how, American evangelical pastor Scott Lively, exported biblical hatred to Uganda. As a result of his actions Uganda now has a law that imprisons homosexuals for life if they were repeat offenders. Originally it was based on the law of the Bible and The Death Penalty was recommended. This film highlights the cruelty and inhumanity of the American Evangelical movement headed by Scott Lively. Scott Lively currently stands charged with crimes against humanity for his role in exporting hatred to Uganda. He attempted to get those charges thrown out last year but the judge ruled that there was enough evidence to proceed to trial. Scott Lively is also running for Governor of Massachusetts in . The filmmaker, Roger Williams, is a gay man himself and was raised in a Baptist household. This film has been screened at churches nationwide with wonderful reviews and acceptance. I saw the film in Palm Springs with my -year-old daughter. We got a chance to speak with Mr. Roger Ross Williams afterwards at the Q&A session and he is a wonderful and caring man. The negative comments here are coming from born-again Christian Evangelicals who sadly are misguided and misinformed. If you want to know more, just watch the movie.
16. Eye opening - 'God Loves Uganda' is an incredibly moving eye opening film that demonstrates the consequences imposing one cultures views onto another. The facts and evidence it portrays is not anti-Christian or negative on those that were interviewed. These people believe they are doing good and helping. However, their actions are having a negative affect on the people of Uganda. With hate crimes on the rise and the adoption of legal policy that directly counters reality and imposes strict (and barbaric) penalties on the homosexual and transgender community. It's is devastating what is happening to the people of Uganda as a result of missionary work that while arguing to 'love thy neighbor' is in the same breadth shaming, condemning and harming an entire group of people. Everyone should watch this incredible film, regardless of their religious or political views and go in with an open mind and heart to create their own opinion not biased on their previous belief system.
17. Don't Miss This Film - This is a powerful film that shed much needed light on a subject that has been slithering into and now strangling countries in Africa. If anyone gives this movie a negative review, it's because they are probably guilty of wanting a "kill the gays" bill in their area. It does show religious figures full of love and compassion and acceptance, but the people with more foot soldiers and millions of dollars to spend, are not as accepting. Bottom-line: religious right-wingers are loosing the battle in the USA, so are moving to other countries where they can feed them their hate. Unfortunately, they are gobbling it up. This film is scary-great. Watch it and make up your own mind.
18. Shame to those that spread HATE! - Christ's message could not have been FURTHER from the message that these carpet bagging snake oil charlatans are spreading! It is time to expose their rhetoric through important works like this and re-claim and practice Christ's true message of compassion, kindness, and love. Let's spread health, peace, education, compassion and humanity to the world rather than the complete gibberish and vile that these loathsome hate groups espouse.

1. Change The Narrative - Sometimes you get reluctant to watch movies based on books but I can tell you this was done well. I recommend this movie to any and everyone because their are parts and chapters to all of our lives that we can relate to. What you do with what you receive from this movie is up to you and I can tell you that you’ll be motivated to get involved around social work and foster care! I cringed I smiled I laughed and shedded a tear or two but most importantly I walked away with a better sense of purpose and direction for how I can changes the arc of a life. Chances Change Lives. I’m so glad Steve told his story as so many are afraid too not knowing our trials are testimony it’s for our victories of the future even if we aren’t present to see them come to fruition.

1. Inspiring - I first viewed this documentary in St Louis where the director and one of the actors (Saadiq Mohumad, who is now attending University here) were available at the end to answer questions, providing some great insight into Somali and the struggle faced by the the population through the story of these soccer players. A very positive and moving experience, I'd recommend buying or renting. Well done J.R. Biersmith.
2. Eye opening doc, must see! - A powerful, earth-shattering tale of how the people from a world of pirates & war cling to the one thing in their existence that is absolutely forbidden, and how that one thing carries a dream of freedom and life for their future. You'll fall in love, you'll cheer, and you'll be on the edge of your seat as these two boys navigate the dark scary world of chasing their dreams at any cost. History buffs, sports buffs, citizens of the world, and champions of humanity alike will find this pulling at their heart strings until the very end! A must-see

1. The Eritrean Exodus - I am an Eritrean and American; clearly illustrating the government of Eritrea is an insult to the Eritrean peoples all over the world. Saying this, does not include the caring and preparing the time you and the crew spend time to make this film. Africa will not be sold by your meager supplement insults rather by you opening your hearts to the Eritreans and our struggles towards cleaning up by the Eropeans colonials of what they have done towards Africa. P.S. Africa is for Africans. EPLFEVER.
2. Powerful documentary - This documentary is powerful and insightful. It transformed my perception of what the refugee crisis means to me, because I got incredibly close to experiencing the stories that shape refugees' lives. I strongly recommend that anybody interested in human rights, international studies, and/or humanitarian issues watch this film. It will be an hour very well spent.
3. Watch and share! - I thought this documentary was fantastic! It really helped to humanize the refugee crisis and I learned a lot as I had not heard about Eritrean refugees before watching the documentary. I definitely recommend wayching it. Thank you to the Chris and his team for spreading the word and sharing these stories.
