Watch the Trailer and the Opening Scene of "Beyond the Mask"

A new movie titled "Beyond the Mask" - slated for an April 6 release - looks very interesting. Here is the movie description from the website:
Double crossed and on the run, an assassin for the British East India Company seeks to redeem his past by thwarting a plot against a young nation's hope for freedom.
The leading mercenary for the British East India Company, Will Reynolds has just been double-crossed and now is on the run in the American Colonies. Working to redeem his name and win back the affections of the woman with whom he's never been fully truthful, Will now hides behind a new mask in hopes of thwarting his former employer. As his past life closes in on him, Will must somehow gain the trust and the help of his beloved Charlotte - as well as Ben Franklin - while he races against time to defuse a plot of historical proportions. Coming to theaters Spring, 2015, Beyond the Mask is a revolutionary new family film that brings history to life in a faith-filled adventure celebrating grace, liberty, and the true freedom that can only be found in Christ.
Having not seen the movie, I can't comment about whether it is tainted by bad theology (such as Arminianism). However, from what I know so far, the theology looks pretty good, as seen in these comments from the director, Chad Burns:
“Ultimately, the deepest theme is about where we find the basis for our identity … all of us want to have value and we tie that to something, and very often in the west we tie that to our performance,” Chad told TheBlaze. “And there’s a fundamental idea within the Christian faith that, ultimately, our own performance is never going to be good enough … it’s through Christ’s finished work that we find our value.” (source: The Blaze)

I watched the "Courage: New Hamshire" short series and I wasn't disappointed.
