In our vast Christian entertainment viewing experience, we sometimes come upon films that we can hardly justify writing a full review for. Therefore, for your convenience, so you don’t have to go watch those free films that invade your suggested watch list in on-demand video services, we’ve provided a quick overview here. Someday we might post more, if we’re fortunate enough to find more.
The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure
Oh, Mickey Matson. Why does this series exist? I guess someone pitched the idea of a juvenile young-adult patriotic secret society action adventure suspense secret codes National Treasure concept copycat film to PureFlix and they liked it because they don’t usually have any standards (see Divine Will). So they found the most redneck characters ever to play the villains and wrote out a bunch of mumbo jumbo about secret codes to make the story look interesting. Then they thought it would be cool to throw in some kind of cockamamie machine invention doohickey that does alchemy or something. Basically, this sort-of-non-Christian action adventure film is just too far over our heads to warrant a full review, especially since we can’t make heads or tails of what we’re supposed to learn from it.
Pirate’s Code: The Adventures of Mickey Matson
Oh, there’s another one? To think they meant to make more of these like PureFlix’s own version of a poor man’s young adult film franchise. Seriously, is this all they could come up with? More redneck villains and stupid props! More devices, doohickeys, and junk science! More secret societies and secret codes and secret secrets! More terrible special effects! If a non-Christian saw this, they would laugh you out of the room. This non-franchise should have been left at the storyboard.
Road to the Open
This isn’t really even a Christian film at all, just another random cheap inspirational film that PureFlix endorses. It was so boring to watch and the only reason we did was so we could see John Schneider and Eric Roberts play an alpha-male star tennis team. They were barely in the movie as it was, which was a real bummer, and they weren’t even that funny, even though they tried. Oh well.
Well that’s all for now! Maybe we’ll post another one someday…maybe not…
