The movie Sound of Freedom was both one of the best and worst movies I’ve ever seen. Best because the story was interesting, the protagonists were likable and engaging, and the plot moved quickly. But the worst part is that it was also very hard to watch because I went into the theater knowing that the movie is largely true.
The movie starts off with the kidnapping of a brother and sister from Honduras by a young woman posing as a talent agent. You then see the American Homeland Security agent, Tim Ballard, recover the little boy. After the little boy’s rescue, he asks Tim if he can find his sister, too, and most of the movie involves Tim trying to find out what happened to the little girl.
It’s an action story of a man trying to put a family back together; it’s also a story of Tim Ballard’s personal journey in leaving the security of a government job to do what he believes is right.
