About 10 days ago I watched a movie in the theater called Sound of Freedom.
I had heard both positive and negative reviews of the movie but was unsure if the people with negative reviews actually watched the movie. To this date I still do not know.
The movie was actually shot in Columbia, South America in 2018. Why the delay in the release? Paramount Fox put up the proceeds but was bought out by Disney who shelved this movie for nearly 5 years. Angel Studios bought the rights from Disney in early 2023 and used Angel investors and crowdfunding to get into theaters nationwide. It cost about 14 million dollars to make and has exceeded 125 million as of July 24, 2023 and is now in more theaters. Lots of free tickets out there since someone paid it forward or you can buy a ticket yourself and then also pay it forward. See Angelstudios.com
This is a true story based on the life of Tim Ballard (played by Jim Caveziel), a Homeland Security Officer who gave up his retirement to save children who were being sexually trafficked. The movie is implicit and not explicit but you will understand what is happening. Basically it reunites a brother and sister who were kidnapped. Also many more children are rescued in the movie by a sting operation and currently under Project Underground Railroad thousands more have been saved while imprisoning many traffickers and pedophiles.The Us has the highest rate of services from traffickers and currently Mexico has the most children kidnapped and sold into slavery.
For me, personally it is the best movie that I have ever seen based on the subject matter, directing, and acting. I truly mean it. Just watch the hundreds if not thousands of YouTube videos.
This movie crosses all boundaries of race, sexual orientation, liberal versus conservative, religion and many more. So no matter your beliefs this movie is for you. You can make a difference and hopefully tell others about the movie. Awareness is what they are going for.
What bothers me is that the liberal press has been advocating for the boycott of this film.
Think about it. Who are they protecting? I guarantee it is the elite in any business, government, CEOs and many others. Yes all the way to the top where many actually profit from it or use the end product (children).
Really sick? Absolutely but we will peel back this onion until all are exposed. It is literally a battle between good and evil.
I pray that this will touch the hearts and minds of all who see it.
