Freetown

Description
An aggressive civil war has escalated, threatening many lives, including a group of native Liberian missionaries and their leader. With the help of local church leader Phillip Abubakar, the missionaries make the difficult journey, only to have their troubles compounded by a rebel fighter bent on killing one of their own. Now they must be willing to give up all that they have, to make a desperate cross-country trip, with little chance of survival, in order to protect one of their own.

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.

A dawdling, flat account of African missionaries on the run from rebels that takes forever to get going and even longer to arrive.

Draggy and one-note, [Freetown is] an indie more interested in reaffirming Mormon dogma than in delivering compelling drama.

The film, based on true events, feels dramatic and thrilling at moments. Other times, its heavy-handed proselytizing mars the proceedings.

It's a satisfying surprise indeed to find a "Mormon movie" willing to confront the church's legacy of racism head-on.
