Movie trailer & more info:

Sam Doonby, a mysterious and handsome drifter, steps off an interstate bus and quickly becomes the talk of a small Texas town. After finding work at Leroy’s Country Blues bar, his musical talents make him a small-town star, attracting the attention of Laura, the beautiful but spoiled daughter of local doctor Cyrus Reaper.

Sam seems to always be in the right place at the right time to prevent disasters from happening in the town. Before long, jealousy and suspicion drive the townspeople to question his sudden arrival and motives. Finally, when Laura begins to doubt him as well, he disappears as quickly as he materialised. Soon, everyone realises that there was more to Sam Doonby than they understood, especially Cyrus and his family as the doctor’s past comes back to haunt him.

Dove Review:
Sam Doonby is a drifter who comes to a small town and finds a job as a bartender at a local bar. In the short time he is there, he winds up becoming involved in many of the towns-folks lives. The impact he has is life changing in many ways as he saves many from harm or even potential fatal outcomes. However, little is known about this mystery man. When the police eventually become involved, they can find no record of his existence.

This film is a gripping mystery/drama that will have you wondering just who Sam Doonby is. Whenever he is asked, his answer is “I’m nobody really.” The film has a message and purpose that we won’t get into here so as not to plot spoil. However, we want you to be aware that the film does carry some rough situations and this is not a film for children. Adults will be moved by this compelling story and we are awarding Doonby our Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 and over. —

Movie trailer:

Xander Cage is left for dead after an incident, though he secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons.

Movieguide Review — Superspy returns but Jesus saves:
Triple X: Return of Xander Cage [aka xXx: Return of Xander Cage] stars Vin Diesel as the title character, a former superspy. A big ladies man, ala James Bond, Mr Cage is called back into action when some super-thieves steal a computer device that can take over other computers to create havoc and murder people. Cage assembles his special team of Triple X spies to find the thieves and retrieve the device, nicknamed Pandora’s Box. What ensues is a series of surprising twists and lots of gunfights, fistfights and derring-do.

Except for several action scenes and some fighting, Triple X: Return of Xander Cage is a bit clunky in the beginning. It has some smug dialogue and lacks a solid villain until the first couple plot twists. Once the plot twists start, the movie becomes more entertaining and leads to a nice finish. Overall, Return of Xander Cage has a light moral worldview, some shots against big government, and positive references to Jesus. However, it’s marred by pagan elements, including plenty of foul language, brief innuendo and some very strong, intense violence. —
