NOT TO BAD
While "Freedomland" has enough to warrant a viewing, say, the nice turns by Samuel L. Jackson and Edie Falco, it may leave you overwhelmed. The film wants to be both a thriller (you may have the ending figured out 10 minutes in) and a "Crash" race-relations companion. Those aspirations are well-intentioned (a bit too much when you consider the overwrought soundtrack)but jarring. There's not enough time spent on the characters who matter most and like myself, was wondering where the extra scenes were. Jackson does what he can, Julianne Moore redeems herself in the second half of the film, and Falco has a meaty secondary role as a child-victim advocate. At least the film WANTS to be about something, which you can't say about most films nowadays.
Freedomland is VERY INTERESTING & VERY GOOD!!
A MUST SEE!! VERY INTERESTING, SUSPENSEFUL, AND GOOD!!! Samuel L. Jackson played a great role, while we didnt care much for Juianne Moore and her role, but with all that said... ITS A MUST SEE!! It was more than we had expected, and kept our attention from beginning to end! WE RECOMMEND IT!!! Rent It or Buy It? We say...... BUY IT!! Our Overall Rating: 8.5/10 THANKS!!! CHAOTICZ
Flawed and miscast but good
"Freedomland" will not be a popular movie. The movie doesn't have enough action and the action is does contain is more to promote a message than to titillate. Its message is basically about inner city racism. Its about the fuss made over a missing white child in a black community. The story is about a white women who was car-jacked in a housing project and, unknown to the jacker, her 4 year old son was in the car's back seat. You'll have to see the movie to see the rest since revealing the story would completely ruin the movie. I really enjoyed this movie. I thought the performances by Samuel Jackson, William Forsythe and Ron Eldard were realistic and affecting. One standout was Edie Falco. She played a very unglamorous role and was powerfully affecting. She should get an Academy Award nomination for this role. She was fabulous. Another standout was Julianne Moore who was very miscast. I did not like her in this role. She played a very weak, flawed and emotionally stunted individual whose behavior at times turned my stomach. I did not like the character. The character was not written to be liked, maybe pitied and I think that aspect is what Ms. Moore was trying to evoke. I think she did too good a job at making her character weak and flawed and missed a toughness that the book's character had. To live in the environment that she did she would have acquired more emotional survival skills than the movie's character portrayed. Ms. Moore's character looked like she wandered onto the set from a suburban mall. Her looks and demeanor next to the strong Black women characters made her appear too weak and her obstinacy appears to be more stupidity. I think Edie Falco could have played this role better with her strength and then the revelations and breakdown when the toughness crumbled would have been more effective. The movie is unfortunately being advertised as a thriller and audiences expecting action and things blowing up will be disappointed. "Freedomland" is one of those movies that Hollywood doesn't get or know what to do with but it is a very worthwhile movie to see. I gave it a 8 out 10. I downgraded it slightly because of Ms. Moore's performance.
good plot, bad acting
This movie was alright. I didn't like the casting very well, but the plot was pretty good. Julianne Moore plays a mother who was carjacked with her son in the back seat, she acts like she's mental, not traumitized. You know somethings up the whole movie when you see how freaky she acts. I also don't think Samual Jackson was a great selection for his role. I would rather see Jackson in an action movie, maybe physically fighting crime, or as Dave Chappelle said, gettin his head bit off by a shark in Deep Blue Sea, but instead you get to see Jackson trying to be a mastermind, and in the end, he didnt even find anything out! It was kind of dissapointing. The plot was a good suspense film and kept me watching the whole time, but I also caught myself laughing at the poor acting. I'd recommend renting this movie before deciding to buy it.
