Anti-Child-Trafficking Film Sound of Freedom Film Smashes Expectations at Box Office

The ‘Sound of Freedom’ film starring ‘Passion of The Christ’ actor Jim Caviezel has surpassed $10 million in presales, with over one million tickets sold ahead of its premiere today, July 4.

The anti-child trafficking film received a 92 percent “fresh” rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes and a 100 percent rating from audiences who have seen the movie ahead of its premiere.

In a review for Variety, Owen Gleiberman said that “You needn’t hold extreme beliefs to experience ‘Sound of Freedom’ as a compelling movie that shines an authentic light on one of the crucial criminal horrors of our time, one that Hollywood has mostly shied away from.”

Gleiberman added that the media shows drug trafficking in excess, but “Child sex trafficking, by contrast, isn’t a subject that lends itself to ‘entertainment.'”

“But as ‘Sound of Freedom’ informs us, it’s the fastest growing international criminal network the world has ever seen,” Gleiberman wrote.

“A closing title states — accurately — that there are more people enslaved now by sex trafficking than there were when slavery was legal,” he added.

“And the nightmare lived by captured children is unspeakable, unimaginable…and all too real,” ” Gleiberman continued.

“Let’s be clear: This matters more than the cocaine or opioids industry,” Gleiberman added.

The Pauline Center for Media Studies, a project of the Daughters of St. Paul, wrote that “Sound of Freedom plays like an action thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat at the same time as being a drama about Tim’s first foray into rescuing trafficked kids.”

“Caviezel’s acting is spot on as he expresses Tim’s horror at the reality these victims have endured and his determination to liberate them,” the Center added.

“Lucas Avila as Miguel is magnificent at conveying the intense emotion of a trafficking victim coupled with the innocence of a child who just wants his sister back.”

“A troubling aspect of the film, though, is that it makes integration back into ‘normal’ life after being exploited look too easy.”

Last month, Caviezel joined Steve Bannon on his War Room podcast and revealed he worked with several former federal agents and 30 Navy SEALS while making the film in Colombia.

Caviezel also implicated several US agencies in child sex trafficking during the interview with Bannon.

This is the most important film,” Caviezel told Bannon.

This is why movies were supposed to be made.”

” This is why I wanted to become an actor. I wanted to do things to bring the light on evil. And this is a perfect good versus evil film…” he said.
