"The Masked Saint" is based on a true story about one pastor's mission to help his community by risking his identity and returns to his former life as a wrestler. The triumphant story follows one man's journey and struggle between helping others and the consequences he faces doing this.
A pastor and professional wrestler accepts a position at a struggling church where he helps the community both in his official capacity and as his alter ego The Saint.
I had heard about this movie some time ago so when I came across it on Netflix I thought I'd check it out. As a pro wrestling fan from way back, the idea of a wrestler turned minister sounded somewhat appealing if unconventional, and the story itself is generally okay, but you can tell it's acted poorly and the production values place it in B movie territory. I thought the casting was a bit bizarre too, with the actress portraying hooker Valerie (Danielle Benton) the best looking woman in the picture. She certainly didn't present a wasted, street life character in need of redemption so much as someone who just needed to turn things around in her life.
I wasn't aware that 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper had passed until I checked his screen credit here on IMDb. He was a pretty flamboyant character with the WWF, and it was a hoot to hear him state in the picture that pro wrestling hadn't been on the up and up since the Seventies. I had to laugh, does that mean when I was following Bruno Sammartino, Bobo Brazil, Gorilla Monsoon and Killer Kowalski throughout the Sixties, it was all legit? That would be pretty funny.
The one concession the picture makes in it's blend of wrestling and religion was the name of one of the Saint's finishing holds - the faith breaker. When sizing up Brett Granstaff against James Preston Rogers' character, The Reaper, one gets a pretty good idea that size doesn't matter in pro wrestling when it comes to the script writing. But it should when it comes to making movies, and that's where this one falls a little short. The Masked Saint (2016) is a laughably bad faith-based film. Was I expecting a good film? Hell no. The film had terrible performances, cringe-worthy dialogue and bland direction. However, I didn't hate myself while watching this movie. The wrestling scenes were so laughably bad,that I found myself constantly on the edge of my seat laughing. Over-the-top is the best way to describe them. The film is unfunny when it is trying to be funny, and funny when it isn't trying to be funny. Faith-based films are generally terrible, but I found some enjoyment in this one. When grading this film, I can't ignore how truly atrocious it is on a film-making level. 'The Masked Saint' is heinous, but absurdly fun. It is on the level of a "so bad it's good" film. This faith-based drama "inspired by true events" (a phrase that hereafter has lost all its meaning) manages to be dumb on so many levels that, well, it simply has to be taken on faith. a5c7b9f00b
