I Just Wanted to Tell you

8:31 AM

I know that today is supposed to be Writing Saturday, but I had to tell you about a movie that we watched last night. A friend of ours lent us a Christian movie called Pendragon, Sword of his Father and last night we decided to watch it. I sat down with my water and brownies and prepared myself for another rather dippy Christian movie. You see, when I was younger, most movies that were made by Christians had really poor acting, and were pretty cheesy so I just have come not to expect much.

About ten minutes into the movie I was just amazed. The acting was good, the computer graphics look great, the cinematography was amazing, and the plot was incredible. There were parts of the movie that were just so stunning that I hardly breathed, and there were parts that made me cheer as people lived out their faith.

So, you might be asking, what was this movie about? Here is what the Burns Family Studios website says;

"The year is A.D. 411 - the Empire of Rome is crumbling. As the legions are called back to the Eternal City, the Isle of Britain is abandoned to Saxon marauders…

Son of British Chieftain Justinian the Pendragon, young Artos has grown up in a quiet coastal village. Justinian entrusts the boy with a vision – to defend the people God has trusted them with. But, with the attack of Barbarian raiders, the village is destroyed, and Artos, the only survivor, is taken as a Saxon slave. Artos’s will is crushed as he toils under Saxon masters… He begins to despair.

"One snowy night, Artos is forced to flee. As he collapses at the end of his own strength, God intervenes. With a new understanding and faith in God’s sovereign plan, he sets off with renewed hope. Artos journeys high into the Welsh countryside to the mountain stronghold of Arfon, where the British ruler Ambrosius is raising an army to halt the invading Saxons.

"Among Ambrosius’s troops, Artos finds what he has been seeking. Brotus, a young comrade, becomes his loyal friend, and Artos’s faith and vision has soon won the hearts of many among the British force… including Ambrosius’ daughter, Wenneveria.

"However, there is one among the Britons who does not share Artos’ golden dreams… or rejoice at his battlefield successes. Artos soon crosses paths with Cadeyrn, a British commander seeking to amass his own power. Jealous of his young rival’s growing popularity, Cadeyrn plots to remove the young Pendragon…

"Through the treachery of his bitterest enemies and the betrayal of his closest friends, Artos is once again alone - the hunted defender of Britain. Soon he must make a deadly choice – between the girl he loves and the people he is called to defend."

I encourage you to find this movie and watch it as soon as you can!

  1. I bought it several months ago.
    I must say I was very disappointed in the acting (I thought it was rather comedic ) but the plot was very good, Caydern was a great bad guy, Winneveria's dresses were beautiful, :) and I loved the flaming sword thing.

  2. My good friend recently higly recommended Pendragon to me and I certainly have my interest peaked now.

  3. Hi Sarah,
    Pendragon is a great movie, isn't it?
