Kenneth Copeland Revisits the Big Screen

September 23, 2009 / https://blog.kcm.org

This Christmas, watch for the release of the motion picture The Rally, starring Kenneth Copeland, Rick Reyna and T-Bone.

This gritty drama follows several families living in a city riddled with crime and corruption. As the local church works to bring positive change, it is confronted at every turn by those who desire to keep the city and its people in bondage. Only God knows what it will take to unite the city and bring the powers that be to their knees!

One Event…One Church…One God…The Rally.

Directed by Rick Reyna, The Rally represents the fulfillment of a promise. After years of working in Hollywood with names like Michael Mann and Al Pacino, Reyna received the call into full-time ministry. That calling came with one stipulation: “Someday the Lord will have us make Him a movie.” The Rally is that movie.

More than merely an entertaining film, The Rally is the opportunity for believers worldwide to be part of bringing 1 million souls into the kingdom of God.

 

DVD Available on Amazon

Actors: Kenneth Copeland, T-Bone, Rick Reyna
Director: Rick Reyna
DVD Release Date: August 7, 2012

God has sent a team into the city to bring change. One Event.... One Church. One God. The Rally.

Kenneth Copeland does a outstanding job as a sinister mob boss who becomes a Christian and leaves his old life and the city he dominated to his son. The story is mostly about how his son chooses the old mob life and is not about to be threatened by some do-gooder Christians trying to bring in an evangelistic rally, which he will stop at nothing to run them out of town. This is a very believable story of drug addiction and the workings of crime in people's lives--white, black, Hispanic, all. But it also shows why Salvation is so needed and changes things. The end almost brings one to tears. We liked the movie a lot.

The movie's theme is about a mafia-type man who controls and manipulates crime in a city. The man finds Christ but then has to deal with his rebellious son who wants to continue in the underworld, leading the crime family. A Christian group comes to town to hold rally crusades and the crime syndicate tryes to stop the ministry.
The acting was actually quite good. I am not completely on board with some of Ken Copeland's past theological statements. However, I can respect the quality of his acting and accent, as well as purpose in sharing Christ. The movie was good quality and can be a fine evangelism tool (just see caveat below). Different races and ethnicities were portrayed in a positive manner.
The movie does show occasional drugs and violence, and a dysfunctional family, hence its PG 13 rating.

In 2013 there was a notice on the site that stated The Rally 2, which became The Rally LA when it was released, was in pre-production.

 

Finally in 2016 a sequel was released called The Rally L.A.

Synopsis

“The Rally-LA: Breaking the Curse”: Can a man ever be satisfied with money, cars, houses, airplanes and the fullness of this world? The answer is no! Antonio Miguel Sarka Sr. (Kenneth Copeland) is that man. Even though Sarka seems to find all that he needs in “The Rally 1,” his heart is telling him that he needs more from life. In “The Rally-LA,” we will see that love will cause a man to lay down his riches, his pride and even his life in order to reach the most precious thing in the world to him — his family. Now on the move to the big city of Los Angeles, Sarka is being called to the City of Angels for a date with destiny.

Santiago (Eric Roberts) is the ruthless head of his own criminal empire in Los Angeles, and he doesn’t feel the same way as his brother, Sarka. He owns the mayor, Paul Mitchell (Curtis Taylor), other city officials and high ranking police officers, controls the drug cartels and holds the city and its people captive. He senses an ominous shift is coming. Santiago is a man willing to do whatever it takes. He’ll put everything on the line to keep his brother out of his way in “The Rally-LA.”

Dove Review

“The Rally LA: Breaking The Curse” is a powerful story about redemption and shows that no one is ever too far gone for God to reach. It’s a story about a man who shifts his priorities from money and the things of this world to God and to his family. Kenneth Copeland and Eric Roberts do a commendable job in playing Sarka and Santiago, brothers from Cuba who are heading down entirely different paths. Santiago is still a drug lord, dealing cocaine, but Sarka has given up dealing drugs to follow God. He hopes to bring Santiago to God, but Santiago is entrenched in darkness. This story is about the battle for a man’s soul. The themes include the changes God can make in a man’s life, repentance, and family love.

Review by JonTheMantis ★★★ / https://letterboxd.com

I've been looking forward to the sequel to "The Rally" for a long time. Mostly because it's been a long time coming, but the hype has only grown since a couple of years ago.

This movie is all drama; very serious, as it should be. The plot has a very stern tone, but I think it could have lightened up a couple of times instead of keeping me in perpetual suspense.

As a video editor, there were a few aspects that I would have liked to change (can't really put my finger on it now), but I know I can't do anything about it now.

I really liked watching Kenneth Copeland act; it's a nice change of pace from what he usually does, and every Eric Roberts makes every scene better with his acting experience among a crowd of newcomers.

 

★★/10 The Frito Bandito
28 August 2016 | by bkoganbing / https://www.imdb.com
The Rally-LA is a film produced by the Kenneth Copeland ministries and Copeland one of our more prominent evangelicals gave himself a role in the film as a gangland family patriarch who has received Jesus. This guy is supposed to be Greek but he's operating in some unnamed southwest city as a Chicano crime lord.

Well Copeland may have Jesus, but brother Eric Roberts has no intention of giving up the life nor control of the city they have.

When pastor George Pearson decides the city needs a revival the bad guys do all they can to stop them.

It's always nice to produce your own film and cast yourself in a prominent role. Copeland has an accent that's a cross between Al Pacino in Scarface and the Frito Bandito. Roberts just overacts to get himself through this one.

What these crooks have against the revival God only knows. Just let them have the thing and the situation will return to normal.

This one's a Thanksgiving special for the whole family.
