Since the film deals with sophisticated issues such as child and sex trafficking, it should come as no surprise to audiences that “Sound of Freedom” is rated PG-13. The MPAA says PG-13 films contain material that “may be unsuitable for pre-adolescents.” Directed by Alejandro Monteverde, the film contains imagery and themes that could potentially upset younger viewers. In Sound of Freedom, viewers can expect explicit visuals that illustrate the horrors surrounding child trafficking. “To be clear, no children are abused on screen and negative content is carefully minimized — but there are frequent scenes of frightened children crowding beds while predatory adults loom overhead,” writes Parent Previews’ Kirsten Hawkes.
According to Common Sense Media, viewers will also witness victims of child trafficking being verbally abused by their captors. In addition to footage of child trafficking, the film also depicts several situations of escalating violence that result in shootings. Audiences should keep in mind that this is an action film and violence is one of the main reasons Sound of Freedom is rated PG-13. The film also contains harsh language and references to drug use. Note that the film also contains references to child pornography, although no details are discussed and there are no visual references or mentions. There is also evidence of pedophilia.
“Sound of Freedom” is a complicated film that is controversial on several counts. While it’s a commercial success and a box office favorite, its complex subject matter can captivate viewers. Ultimately, it’s up to parents to decide if Sound of Freedom is right for their kids. Common Sense Media advises that the film is best suited for audiences aged 16 and over.
