The film fills up its hour-and-a-half harmlessly enough, but nothing's really memorable. Which is rather, bitterly, ironic.

The movie screams of a low budget and pedestrian vision ...

Yes, child trafficking is horrific; but embedding your raise-the-alarm mission in a film this inept runs the risk of arousing more amusement than activism.

Not for the first time in films, noble intent is at odds with aesthetics.

A middling thriller wrapped around a compelling lecture about the child sex trade in Southeast Asia...

A message movie whose only subtlety is found in the portrayal of Adderly, a sexual predator who actually believes in some twisted way that he loves the children whose childhoods he's destroys.

Trade of Innocents is as much a piece of social-justice campaigning as it is a work unto itself, an important fact to remember when considering its many flaws.

Audience Reviews for Trade of Innocents

3 1/4 stars--Good message in the storyline, but somehow doesn't quite do what it was intended. Good acting by Dermot. Mira I can barely stand, though. She ALWAYS looks to me like she is ready to cry....so in all those emotional scenes where she is crying, it just makes me cringe. The only memorable parts of this movie revolved around John Billingsley. His portrayal of a sick pedophile was very well done. Too bad it wasn't in a more memorable movie...
