Captures the Spirit of Freedom!
16 March 2018 | by kbateman-61437See all my reviews

I've been able see this project develop from its kickstarter phase with the promise of capturing a worldwide spirit of freedom in a war-epic similar to Braveheart. Braveheart had a profound impact on me as a boy and has stayed with me as I've become a man. The principle that when you know what you're willing die for you also know what you're willing to live for has been a powerful truth that I've been seeking for throughout my life. I believe it is a truth we are all seeking for. A belief in something greater than ourselves. A life of purpose. I had great reservations in a project claiming to capture that same spirit of freedom and purpose I experienced in Braveheart. Especially with a story from a book I've grown up with and am very familiar with. Now having seen this concept short film and having slept on it. I feel that same spirit of freedom has been captured again. Something special has been created here. I hope that anyone who watches this will look past the technical imperfections and pay attention to the emotion and spirit of freedom. We need more stories about men and women who are willing die for what they believe in to inspire us to discover what we're willing to live for. "Every man dies, not every man really lives." -Randall Wallace, Braveheart
