[Editor’s Note: The following review of the movie The Sound of Freedom is my perspective on it. If it happens to coincide with yours then please feel free to comment and/or share the url to this article with your friends and family. It appears the road to freedom is still long and winding.]
Last night my wife and I attended a showing of The Sound of Freedom at the Carib Theatre in Quesnel, B.C. Saw many local citizens there. By the time the movie started the theatre was close to full and I would guess there were about 200 people in attendance. That may seem small but the Carib theatre is a very old building and has never been expanded. Originally the owner had scheduled the movie for only two days beginning on the 12th but he now is running it for another few days plus having matinee showings on Saturday and Sunday.
Having read much of the negative criticism aimed at it beforehand on social media, including here on Twitter, I wanted to see it and get a sense of how it would affect me given my own experiences throughout the past 76 years walking through this valley of tears we call life on Earth.
The one thing that I also kept in mind was Mel Gibson’s involvement in the promotion of movie. Knowing Mel’s past and having viewed some of his movies over the years, including the classic Braveheart, I assured myself beforehand that the invective aimed at the movie might be based more on ignorance of Mel’s intentions than anything else.
The movie was intense from beginning to end. The emotive quality of it was professional to the nth degree and that, I believe, was the primary purpose of it. The acting, from the children to the adults, was superlative. Every tear drop that fell tore at one’s heartstrings. It was a 2 hour process of marinating the heart and it ended with text messages on the screen stating, among other things, that the United States of America was the epicentre of child trafficking with 1,500,000 children going missing every year. It also stated that there were more children today in captivity and slavery than at any other time in recorded history including the period of black slavery in the USA.
The message of the movie was blunt and clear. No solutions were proffered. The stone was turned over and the people were given the Truth. Now that we know it’s now up to us what we’ll do about it. To turn a blind eye is to be complicit.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was the New World Order conspiracy. The Sound of Freedom revealed one of the foundational stones comprising the infrastructure of tyranny; one the world can no longer avoid facing. Seeing what was written upon it in blood and tears the fate of the world now rests in the hands of the freedom fighters who will take up the Sword of Truth and resist to the end and vanquish the perverse power of the evil now before us.
