Product Overview

Freedomland:Based on the best-selling novel by Richard PRice, this explosive thriller stars Academy Award nominees Samuel L. Jackson (1994, Best Supporting Actor, Pulp Fiction) and Julianne Moore (2002, Best Actress, Far From Heaven) and Golden Globe winner Edie Falco ("The Sopranos").When Brenda Martin (Moore) claims her car was stolen with her son in the backseat, the chilling accusation sparks an intense investigation led by Detective Lorenzo Council (Jackson). The frenzy to find her son escalates into an explosive nightmare of suspicion and accusation, and the search for the truth leads to riveting action, disturbing revelations, and a shocking ending.S.W.A.T.:Two wisecracking, battle-hardened veterans (Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Farrell) team up with a pair of street-smart rookies (Michelle Rodriguez and LL Cool J) to form the most freewheeling - but effective - S.W.A.T. team ever. Their first assignment: transport an international drug kingpin into federal custody - after he's offered $100 million to anyone who will free him!System Requirements:Running Time: 230 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE

Reviews
ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review [S.W.A.T.] Samuel L. Jackson's smile suggests more and has more meaning than anything in the story, screenplay and direction of "S.W.A.T." The same could be said for Colin Farrell's stillness, his air of integrity, and for Michelle Rodriguez's glower: She just lifts her head and gives that slack-jawed, hostile glare, and for a while there's the illusion of watching a better movie...the action is absurd and uninspired, and that the people who made it are probably embarrassed about the whole thing. "S.W.A.T." is better than "Gigli," but so is most outpatient surgery.

Review [Freedom] Freedomland assembles the elements for a superior thriller, but were the instructions lost when the box was opened? It begins with a compelling story about a woman whose car is hijacked with her 4-year-old son inside. It adds racial tension, and the bulldog detective work of a veteran police detective. And then it flies to pieces with unmotivated scenes, inexplicable dialogue, and sudden conclusions which may be correct but arrive from nowhere. The film seems edited none too wisely from a longer version that made more sense.
