Redemption, a bit heavy handed
25 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Unshackled is a redemption story--

Told in a somewhat heavy handed manner, we see how an individual can rise above his past, and indeed himself, to become something better. Most likely to have a long life as a video rental, this should be a very popular item with church groups and anti drug or anti crime organizations. I will admit to feeling that the ending was laid on a bit to thickly, but it will appeal to the older, more conservative leaders writing the checks. However, for most of the target audience, this will undercut the message badly.
