I loved the movie, and have watched it a few times. I thought it was exciting and somewhat realistic. However, those dismissing the Masonic influence on the movie are kidding themselves. I’ve never been one to avoid reading or watching something because of its attack on my religion (I trust myself not to be persuaded by unopposed, straw-man attacks), but would caution against laughing off the comments. Did the movie teach Masonic doctrines? Who knows? (Only Masons know the doctrines! :rolleyes: ) But it certainly did glorify Masonry and subtly suggested that to be a Patriotic American was to be a Freemason. Although our country’s history is intertwined with Freemasonry, I thought the movie went overboard in that respect.
Again, I loved the movie, and will definitely see the sequel. I haven’t bought the DVD yet, but may do so in the future. I thought it was fantastic. But don’t kid yourselves that the movie wasn’t promoting Freemasonry.
