A middling thriller wrapped around a compelling lecture about the child sex trade in Southeast Asia...
| Original Score: 2/4
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.
The film fills up its hour-and-a-half harmlessly enough, but nothing's really memorable. Which is rather, bitterly, ironic.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The movie screams of a low budget and pedestrian vision ...
| Original Score: 1.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Not for the first time in films, noble intent is at odds with aesthetics.
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.
| Original Score: 1/4
