FREEDOM (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

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.

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

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