Storyline

Two men separated by 100 years are united in their search for freedom. In 1856 a slave, Samuel Woodward and his family, escape from the Monroe Plantation near Richmond, Virginia. A secret network of ordinary people known as the Underground Railroad guide the family on their journey north to Canada. They are relentlessly pursued by the notorious slave hunter Plimpton. Hunted like a dog and haunted by the unthinkable suffering he and his forbears have endured, Samuel is forced to decide between revenge or freedom. 100 years earlier in 1748, John Newton the Captain of a slave trader sails from Africa with a cargo of slaves, bound for America. On board is Samuel's great grandfather whose survival is tied to the fate of Captain Newton. The voyage changes Newton's life forever and he creates a legacy that will inspire Samuel and the lives of millions for generations to come. Written by Distributor

To Be Fair Mel Gibson Isn't In It
6 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Cuba Gooding Jnr tries to resurrect his career and right away this begs two possible questions

"What career would that be ?"

Or

"Who is Cuba Gooding Jnr ?"

Oh come on guys , stop being so cruel . He hasn't done you any harm and if you sat through BOAT TRIP it's no ones fault but your own . That said this "Based on a true story" adventure is little bit cynical since it's obviously inspired by 12 YEARS A SLAVE though it's much less hard hitting . To be truthful it's not what some people have claimed as religious propaganda and certainly isn't a faith based movie in the same vein as GOD'S NOT DEAD . People in Virginia from era would indeed be evangelical bible bashers , so much so I have trouble believing that the head honcho of the posse hunting the escaped slaves makes claims he doesn't believe in God and seems invented to give black and white dichotomy on both a moral ad metaphysical level . Another annoying aspect is that it ironically plays up to racial stereotypes in that every black person who has ever lived has a lovely baritone singing voice and sing they do at every opportunity . In some ways FREEDOM cod be described as a Walt Disney equivalent of 12 YEARS A SLAVE but looking on the bright side at least we don't have Mel Gibson painting his face blue pretending to be a Scotsman
