FREEDOM (2014 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Freedom needs a remake. The film lacks force, heart, and effective delivery despite the able talents of Cuba Gooding Jr. Director Peter Cousens does not realize his full potential in this movie.

Storyline

Two slave stories intertwine even though separated by nearly 100 years.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Peter Cousens for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Peter Cousens, Michael Goodin, and Cuba Gooding Jr. for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Samuel (Cuba Gooding Jr.), Vanessa (Sharon Leal), Jefferson Monroe (David Rasche), Barnyard Slave 4 (Kimberly Nichole), Plimpton (William Sadler), John Newton (Bernhard Forcher), Ozias (Jubilant Sykes), Mary (Anna Sims), Jim (Aaron Bantum), Adira (Phyllis Bash), and Garrett (Michael Goodwin).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Better watches within this genre are: Lincoln, Amistad, or the fictional story, Django Unchained.
