Ambitious period piece without the budget or the script to cover as much of the Abolition Movement as it tries to fit in.

Noble in intention, this story of slavery and the origin of John Newton's hymn Amazing Grace opens with style but then steadily sinks into messy theatricality, overwhelmed by its own earnestness.

Performances are fine, and the film is well made, but it's too much of a hybrid to be successful.

The film leaves us with the impression that slaves' survival had more to do with sheer luck than dogged resilience.

Peter Cousens' mawkish Freedom is an apologia for the white Christian people who helped slaves escape, or at least wrote songs to make them feel better.

The film tries to have the scope of "12 Years a Slave." But it's ruined by the sanctimonious songs that turn the drama into a half-baked musical. Much worse: the filmmakers' need to show that not all whites employed in the slave trade were evil.

The preaching is earnest and the intentions are good, but the corn is high and the presentation is amateurish.

Though Gooding tries hard to look sincere and troubled, often he appears slightly embarrassed. It's no surprise. Too bad so much talent is wasted here.

"Freedom" takes a compelling chapter in American history - the flight of slaves from Southern bondage to Canada via the Underground Railroad - and flattens its drama.

A schmaltzy, deeply sentimentalized drama about American slavery and the rise of the Underground Railroad.

This is one of those movies that is as dull as it is well-meaning and man, is it ever well-meaning.
