Hollywood and Social Media Attack Christian Film The Reliant: That’s Why You Need to See It Now [Video]

“Crazy Right-Wing Movie Trailer is NUTS” screams one social media movie review headline.

“Ex-Hercules Stars in Bonkers Trailer,” says the title bar in all capital letters underneath video of a trailer clip.

The Reliant stars Kevin Sorbo – who played Hercules in the TV series – Brian Bosworth, Eric Roberts and Mollee Gray.

Rarely has a faith-based film received so much mocking and criticism.


Because the movie addresses tough questions about Second Amendment rights and whether or not God is really good and sovereign. 

Here’s the synopsis:

“When crisis strikes and their world crumbles, is God reliable to meet their needs or must their faith remain blind to facts?

“After an innocent trip to the store ends in rioting and chaos, father of five, Rick (Kevin Sorbo) rushes home desperate to gather his family and find safety. His plans are dashed when the very same armed men suddenly appear, led by the ruthless Jack (Brian Bosworth). Caught in the deadly crossfire, the children are forced to seek shelter in the surrounding woods.

“Alone and vulnerable, the children’s faith and family bonds are pushed to the limit, especially those of the eldest daughter, Sophie (Mollee Gray), who questions the morality of gun ownership but soon learns that in God all things are good, including her family’s Second Amendment right to defend themselves. It is now up to the children to reclaim their home, find their parents and put an end to Jack’s rampage.

“At the heart of The Reliant is a love story. It’s an anthem of hope in the hardest of times, of forgiveness, and of redemption.”

Another social media site posted a video with reaction to the “Hilarious Trailer For Kevin Sorbo’s Silly New Right Wing Movie.”

The description of the video begins with, “Kevin Sorbo’s new movie is coming soon, and boy, does it look bad.”

When Hollywood and the progressive news and social media attack a faith-based film in full force, you can be sure the movie is going to have real impact…

The Motion Picture Association of America gave The Reliant an R rating even though it has no foul language, no sex scenes, and less violence than Disney movies given a PG-13 rating.

Dr. J. P. Johnston – the screenwriter and producer of the film – had to appeal to the MPAA to get the R rating removed.

When asked what prompted him to create the film, Dr. Johnston said, “There’s a huge debate going on in this country about gun rights. Typically, when there’s a mass shooting, the Left wants to disarm everyone while the Christian right wants to offer prayers for the victims and defend the constitutional right to keep-and-bear-arms. This movie addresses what the Second Amendment is really about – protecting yourself and your family from criminals and from the tyranny.”

The Reliant will be in select theaters for one night only on October 24th.

It will be available on DVD in December.

  1. We, who have faith, know and see how the Left are gnashing their teeth in hatred of anything Godly and Right leaning. That’s why Ecclesiastes 10:2-3, has become my new favorite verse for these insane political times and these insane politicians and their followers… 2. “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.”
    3. “Even as fools walk along the road, they lack sense and show everyone how stupid they are.”
