"Young Homosexual Killers Meet Bitter Pedophile"
What You Need To Know:
A story of innocence crucified and a town gone mad, OUR LADY OF THE ASSASSINS seems to side with Fernando’s bitter tirades and cynical mockery of Christianity. In fact, the movie seems to be a Communist attack on the false Marxist proposition that Christianity, organized religion and capitalism failed to sustain civilization, when in fact they created civilization and Marxism destroys it. In reality, organized religion and capitalism are only failures when they are cut off from their Christian roots and especially from God’s Grace through Jesus Christ, who alone brings true faith, life, love, and hope. The movie also contains extreme violence, pedophilia, sodomy, and homosexuality
(HHH, HoHoHo, AbAbAb, CoCoCo, AcapAcapAcap, FR, LLL, VVV, SS, NNN, A, DD, MM) Strong humanist worldview about the violent world of Medellin, Columbia, one of the main centers of the cocaine trade, featuring homosexual, godless, anti-Christian, expatriate pedophile who becomes anesthetized by the violence in his home town plus movie seems to have a strong Communist, anti-capitalist subtext & man suggests false religious notions of God in a mocking way; at least 36 obscenities, 3 profanities & blasphemous talk about God, including protagonist says, “Blessed art thou, Satan”; extreme imitable violence where teenage boys shoot people dead at the least provocation & older pedophile friend starts to get a kick out of it once he overcomes his initial shock; homosexual cohabitation, brief long shot of depicted homosexual behavior in bed & much implied homosexual rendezvous; rear male nudity, brief full male nudity in one scene & other partial nudity between pedophile & his older teenage victims/conspirators; alcohol use; smoking, children on streets sniff glue & references to cocaine trade; and, miscellaneous immorality such as nihilistic comments & carjacking occurs in one scene.
OUR LADY OF THE ASSASSINS is a harrowing look at the violence gripping Medellin, Columbia, a main center of the cocaine trade. Fernando, a world-weary middle-aged sodomite, returns to Medellin, his hometown. Fernando appears to be something of a pedophile when he takes up with an older teenage prostitute, Alexis, who’s caught up in constant gang warfare. Alexis, looking as young as 17 in the story, takes to shooting people who anger Fernando. Initially shocked, the bitter, cynical, blasphemous Fernando soon becomes anesthetized to the violent life of the boy, who is himself in danger of an assassin’s bullet, in the form of another young, anonymous tough known as “The Blue Lagoon.”
A story of innocence crucified and a town gone mad, OUR LADY OF THE ASSASSINS seems to side with Fernando’s bitter tirades and cynical mockery of Christianity. In fact, the movie not only seems to be a humanist attack on Christianity, but also a Communist support of the false Marxist notion that Christianity, organized religion and capitalism fails to sustain civilization, when in fact they create civilization while Marxism destroys it. Ironically, it also manages to show the utter moral bankruptcy of homosexual behavior and atheism.
In reality, of course, organized religion and capitalism are only failures when they are cut off from their Christian, biblical roots, and especially when they are cut off from God’s Grace through Jesus Christ, who alone brings true faith, life, love, and hope. This is a nuance that humanists, Communists and radical leftists will always fail to understand because they seem to enjoy having their hearts, minds and souls clouded by Satan and his minions, including the politically correct mavens who run the “news” media and the world’s education systems. If you would like some historical proof of this nuance, you might want to read Christopher Dawson’s classic work, RELIGION AND THE RISE OF WESTERN CULTURE.
The movie also contains extreme violence where teenage boys shoot people dead at the least provocation and pedophilia, sodomy and homosexuality.
