Indie Feel but Quality Message
26 November 2007 | by pootzboySee all my reviews

The plot was everything to this film...the common poor picture/cinematography is forgivable as it is an budget indie, the acting is not top tier but what they lack in polish they made up for in passion.

And it really is "Passion" that this film is all about...the passion of cast, directer and writers to send a passionate message. Now, if you are not a person who wants a film sending messages, or demanding you do some political thinking, and just want to the entertained, pass on this flick and go back into your one dimensional coma.

If however you are a thinking person and take citizenship and patriotism seriously, this is a film that emotes the question of our age. Its about who the terrorist really is....is it an overbearing state gone rogue? Is it people who take the words of the patriotic founders seriously? Or is all this issue of "terrorism" just a misnomer for the age old struggle for liberty? A struggle in which many people get lost and end up serving forces which deny liberty. This story makes you honestly explore the definition of terrorist...is one man's terrorist another man's freedom fighter? That seems to have been the Zeitgeist of 1776 as it is in this imaginary future USA under martial law...but can the fight for liberty take a despotic or inhuman route? Good questions.

Watching this film I was struck by the realization, that by the standards of the security agents of this imaginary US martial state, the very men who founded their nation would be classified as terrorists.

Watch this film....it will bother you...you'll mull it over in your mind a few days afterward...and maybe see it a second time.
