I screened this movie from the producers in exchange for my honest review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
Battling his own inner-demons, Jesse (Rusty Joiner: Last Ounce Of Courage, Dodgeball, “Days of Our Lives”) encounters a young, pregnant teen overcome with grief that, after an impulsive abortion, has her family blaming Jesse for more than just her final decision. Jesse’s wife Julia (Jocelyn Cruz: Strike One, This Is Our Time) must come to terms with her own choices and decide if she can support her husband as opposition mounts against him. Comedian Paul Rodriguez also stars as Virgil with James Russo as Pastor Gil.
In Theaters: OCTOBER 7, 2016
Voiceless is a very bold movie, dealing with the constant debate of whether or not abortion is okay and what the church’s responsibility is when regarding this subject.
The actors in this movie are very good in their roles and the storyline is easy to follow because of their acting. However there wasn’t much dialogue to really keep my interest in particular, just a lot of dramatic music scenes flashing the characters’ different actions in how they respond, rather than talking about it.
The story progressed kind of slowly and I found quite a few of the lines to be rather cheesy, however the movie did have a very deep message that had me thinking about it and comparing my life to how I would respond if I were in this situation, and I think that this is what the makers of the movie had wanted to accomplish. As for content, there are no cuss words, however the intensity of the movie, and a semi-detailed death scene, earned it a PG-13 rating.
Overall, I was pleased with Voiceless though not totally awestruck by it and therefore give it 3 and half stars out 5, but I do recommend families (especially Christian families who are against abortion) to go and see this movie in theaters when it comes out October 7, 2016. Movies like these take a lot of courage to make and in order for them to get better, they need to have support and know that their fellow Christians want to watch them.
