My Review

Many thanks to Angel Studios for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Sound of Freedom is a heavy movie. I've seen a lot of movies in my almost 39 years on this planet, including some very dark horror films and psychological thrillers/dramas. But Sound of Freedom is on a different level. It's very real, and it's very hard to watch at times. But it's also very good. Powerful, inspiring, and eye-opening. As a parent, I feel like this is the worst nightmare. I can't even imagine losing my kids to traffickers, and yet it happens every day. Honestly, it's so heartbreaking to think about, and there needs to be more people like Tim Ballard out there fighting to put an end to this. To quote the film, "God's children are not for sale."
The movie follows real-life hero Tim Ballard, a Homeland Security agent, as he spends his days taking down pedophiles who consume content featuring children online. At the start of the film, we see a father dropping his two children off at an apartment building with other children, seemingly there to audition and potentially gain some stardom. Unfortunately for this father, the "talent scouts" are actually human traffickers who kidnap these kids and sell them to others. We then see Tim gaining the trust of a pedophile he's arrested, which leads him to one of the father's missing children (the son). The little boy is rescued, and it seems like a win. Until Tim discovers Miguel has a sister who is still in the hands of these nefarious, disgusting animals (because I'm sorry, but these people are not human). Unable to get through the bureaucratic red tape at his job, Tim quits and goes on a dangerous mission (with the help of a man known as Vampiro) to do whatever it takes to rescue the little girl and bring her home to her father and brother.
Sound of Freedom is a very emotional, intense film. Not only does it deal with the subject matter of crimes against children, but it has a scene that mentions attempted suicide. There's also some smoking (cigarettes and cigars), drinking, and a little bit of language. It's a movie that doesn't hold back, shining a light on the monsters who have no qualms about hurting children. While there is nothing graphic depicted on screen (thankfully), there are scenes discussing the aftermath of what has happened to these kids (like a doctor telling Tim about the lacerations Miguel has suffered due to the abuse he endured). Sensitive viewers should watch this movie with a bit of caution, but please don't shy away from it. It's an important film, and everyone needs to see it. 
I would highly recommend seeing this in theaters if you can. It's well worth the watch.
