Freetown

True story of escape of six missionaries from Liberia into Sierra Leone after fighting breaks out in Liberia and rebels are out to kill all members of the Krahn tribes.

There are six christian missionaries and their driver Phillip Abubaker who are escaping from Monrovia to go to Freetown in Sierra Leone so that the missionaries can teach freely there which they are fearing to do in Liberia. The rebels are killing every member of the Krahn tribe and they have virtually taken over the country side having regular checkpoints at places.

How the seven of them cramped in an old car travel in such deadly circumstances bypassing the rebels through their wits and forced to pool all their savings to buy petrol and their freedom makes up for the rest of the movie.

The movie is shot well, though there are dull moments when the preaching takes place. The cinematography and camera work is outstanding. IMDB 3/10
