'Where to Watch Jim Caviezel's New Movie 'Sound of Freedom' and Discover its Plot'

"Passion of the Christ star leads faith-based film funded by crowdfunding."

Jim Caviezel, known for his role in "The Passion of the Christ," is set to lead another faith-based event film called "Sound of Freedom." The film will be released by Angel Studios, a film producer and distributor that relies on equity crowdfunding to finance its projects.

Angel Studios recently released its first theatrical film, "His Only Son," which explores Abraham's struggle with God's command to sacrifice his son. The movie had a production cost of around $250,000, and Angel raised $1.2 million through crowdfunding to distribute and market the film. Despite facing competition from major releases like "Dungeons & Dragons" and "John Wick Chapter 4," "His Only Son" opened third at the box office.

What sets Angel Studios apart is its utilization of the Securities and Exchange Commission to release "Sound of Freedom." In May, the company filed a public investment offering to raise funds for the distribution and marketing of the film. Around 7,000 individuals invested between $10 and $25,000, helping Angel Studios reach its goal of $5 million within two weeks.

The anticipation for "Sound of Freedom" is already high, with $10 million in presale tickets. This is an impressive feat for a film released by a non-major studio. However, things become more complex when delving into the organization that the film portrays and considering some of Jim Caviezel's comments during the press tour.

The film is based on a true story and features Jim Caviezel as former Homeland Security agent Tim Ballard. Ballard, dissatisfied with the U.S. government's efforts to combat child trafficking, founded his own anti-trafficking group called Operation Underground Railroad. It is worth noting that the name was already in use by another organization.

Mira Sorvino portrays Ballard's wife in the film, while actor Bill Camp plays a character who introduces Ballard to the child slave trade in Latin America. The film showcases Ballard's mission, which involves undercover stings and infiltrating jungle hideouts. One notable line from the dialogue is, "God's children are not for sale." It is ironic to hear this line from Caviezel, considering his devout practice of Catholicism, especially in light of the Vatican official who attempted to bribe a child sex-abuse victim in the 1990s.

Operation Underground Railroad has faced scrutiny from journalists, with reports of faking evidence and fabricating results. While some may dismiss these claims as the work of the liberal media, it is worth noting that the organization has been linked to QAnon in the past. Recently, Operation Underground Railroad has distanced itself from conspiracy theory groups that have used child exploitation and human trafficking to further their own deceptive causes. Ballard acknowledges that some of these false theories have opened people's eyes, but it is essential to approach them with caution and critical thinking.

Another aspect to consider is Caviezel's promotion of Ballard's organization and the baseless conspiracy theory surrounding a network of "liberal elites" trafficking and killing children for adrenochrome, a chemical compound. These claims lack evidence and should be viewed with skepticism.

For those still interested, "Sound of Freedom" will open in 2,600 theaters on July 4 before eventually being available on Angel Studios' streaming service. It may be wise to arrive early at the theater, as there have been instances of QAnon members attempting to reserve the best seats.
