When I saw the name of the movie, Holyman Undercover I was fooled to think some form of espionage like mission impossible thing was going to happen. My rate of disappointment when I realized that none of the above took place cannot be expressed with words, but I wasnâ(TM)t deterred I went along with the movie expecting to be surprised and boy, wasnâ(TM)t I.
Given the privilege top screen movies before it gets recommended to the Church, I went on a DVD hunt for Christian movies; I picked many and sat for a marathon, when I came across this movie I had to pause and check again to be sure this is meant to be a Christian movie.
The thing is when a Christian movie starts to have sexual undertones, which are not hidden mind you, I start to wonder what message are they trying to pass. The makers are trying to make it seem that the lead character Roy was in a state where he was trapped with between this modern life and what he believes in.
Roy then goes undercover playing any acting gig he can get and dropping lines that will help win people to Christ.
I have written over 250 reviews this is my first 1 star rating, this movie is so bad that I felt insulted that this movie has the name of my savior beside it, the problem is not the bogus acting (hey it is meant to be a comedy, a ridiculous one at that) neither is it the bad costumes which was a plague in this movie (Iâ(TM)m not someone who looks out for costumes in films, but the costume work was so bad that you canâ(TM)t help but notice) the problem is that, our religious man, has a crush on his employer.
Now when a Christian movie has a scene where the lead fantasies about a girl putting on lipstick and calling his name seductively you need to stop watching, because this movie will be shown to kids and many out there under the umbrella of Christian movie and it will be sad, that kids learn that it is OK to lust.
Holyman Undercover, is a drag, it is boring and not at all funny. If you manage to keep awake after the first 30 minutes then all the best, here is a movie I highly recommend you throw away the DVD if you ever come across it.
