The Masked Saint #SaintSquad

I’ve heard some great reviews on the new movie The Masked Saint that will be coming out in January of next year. It has a great story of normal struggles and helps to define them in a new way.

There are some great actors in the movie, and some teaching that will be able to last and be shared in your life. I’m not one who usually enjoys the “sport” of wrestling, but just knowing the story and the meaning behind it all, makes it seem interesting in this movie.

About The Masked Saint Movie:

Masked Saint revolves around the life of Chris Samuels (Brett Granstaff, “Set Up”, “Vice”), a professional wrestler and family man who realizes he saintneeds something more. His calling to become a pastor prompts him to retire from wrestling and move with his wife (Lara Jean Chorostecki, “Hannibal”, and “Copper”) and daughter (T.J. McGibbon, “Lucky 7”) to a small town. Yet the battles he faced in the ring are minor compared to the challenges he must overcome at his new church. From an overbearing congregant (Patrick McKenna, “The Rick Mercer Report”, and “Red Green Show”) and failing attendance to mounting bills for church repairs, Samuels has his hands full.

Samuels finds an ally in Miss Edna (Diahann Carroll, “White Collar”, “Dynasty”), an elderly woman who gives him sage advice and shares her wisdom in a book of writings. Unbeknownst to him, she is also a wrestling fan and encourages him to use his talents to take action tricking him into reconnecting with his old colleagues including a shady wrestling promoter (Roddy Piper, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, “WWE Smackdown”). Afterwards, when Samuels stumbles onto a fight on the seedy side of town, his wrestling skills take down the assailant and a masked vigilante is born.

In order to raise some funds, Samuels’ returns to the ring professionally, and things begin to seemingly improve for the church. His life as a pastor and wrestler soon take up most of his time though – not to mention Samuels’ shrouded crime fighter is now being sought by the police. His talent, as well as his violent secret identity, begins to overshadow his calling as a Pastor and it takes his faith, family and Miss Edna to remind him about grace, goodness and the truth.

I was a huge wrestling fan when I was young. I was around 6 when I discovered it and I sat and watched it on Saturdays. No one in my family watched so I am not sure how I discovered it. Reading your review and seeing the clip has gained my interest and I would love to see this.
