Critic Reviews for Freetown
Although suffused with welcome touches of sly humor, the proceedings never gather the necessary dramatic momentum.
The film, based on true events, feels dramatic and thrilling at moments. Other times, its heavy-handed proselytizing mars the proceedings.
In total, Freetown delivers a powerful message despite limited means, and marks another success for an emerging filmmaker.
The inexperienced cast is earnest but wooden, easily upstaged by the stark beauty of the Ghanaian countryside where the movie was filmed.
A compelling story with fascinating characters, undone by a script that does the opposite of what its real-life Liberian missionaries would do: it doesn't take any chances.
