I had the opportunity to watch a so called action film last night entitled Shoot ‘Em Up. It starred Clive Owen (Inside Man) and Paul Giamatti (Lady in the Water). Giamatti’s character was a a mercenary of sorts who (among other things) is paid to assainate a new born child. He is the picture of evil in this movie. The problem that I have with the movie is that throughout the movie he wears a coat that has a Masonic lapel pin on it. It is very evident in just about every shot that he has in the movie almost to the point that its a prop.
Because the character has no redeeming values, I would doubt that Giamatti himself is a Mason, because I couldn’t see a Mason wanting to portray such a negative image of a Brother.
I think that the producers of the movie may have deliberately wanted to reflect a negative light on the Craft.
If you have seen the movie, please post your thoughts.
