EVENT/MOVIE REVIEW: Sinners Wanted
Sinners Wanted details the struggles within a Church that manifests in our everyday life. It showcases the life of a good man dedicated to love, truth and the gospel and God's ever loving graces on those who come to him in need.
Focused on the tale of a Pastor and a Prostitute, I know Blasphemy lol, but it tells a more solid truth and showcases the reflection of truth we must take upon ourselves as we walk in the light of God.
Take a look at the trailer:
Looks juicy doesn't it, but get your minds out the gutter and take your minds into the realm of the understanding of what can and cannot be. I was honored enough to witness the showing at the Magic Johnson Theater in Largo by executive producer Tressa Azarel
and did I mention it beat out the movie US the entire weekend, I must say you can go ahead and clap right here and the entire team that created this were black ((yup I see you really clapping now lol)).
Take a look at the sold out show:
In all I rate this movie a 10 out of 10. It is a must see and an amazing perspective on how to care about others and working on judging those as if we should not be judged. I salute the entire team and productions as I was thoroughly impressed.
