(2018) (voices of Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ian McShane) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Drama: A young man, abducted alongside his sister into slavery as a child, is given the encouragement to stand up to his oppressors and help lead an epic battle against them and their kind.
- After being abducted as a seven-year-old boy along with his sister, Bilal (voice of JACOB LATIMORE) is a teenage slave living in late 6th century Mecca with his sister, Ghufaira (voice of CHINA ANNE McCLAIN). Despite having once dreamed of being a great warrior and getting motivational life lessons from his mom, Bilal is now resigned to his life serving Umayya (voice of IAN McSHANE) and his sadistic teenage son, Safwan (voice of SAGE RYAN). The only god that Umayya worships is that of greed and money, and thus has his High Priest (voice of FRED TATASCIORE) convince the locals to contribute monetary offerings to their fake idols, while the likes of Okba (voice of MICHAEL GROSS) -- who's in Umayya's inner circle -- peddles smaller versions of those idols when not selling slaves.
Years later, those men are still in power, and Bilal (voice of ADEWALE AKINNUOYE-AGBAJE), now a man, still serves them, as does Ghufaira (voice of CYNTHIA KAYE McWILLIAMS). But when he gets words of advice -- such as that one can only enslave themselves -- from The Lord of Merchants (voice of FRED TATASCIORE) who's preaching the notion of just one God, Bilal stands up to his master and suffers the consequences. The Lord of Merchants then buys Bilal's freedom, and fellow new thinker Hamza (voice of DAVE B. MITCHELL) teaches him how to be a true warrior. What follows is the lead-up to an epic battle between the two sides, with Bilal wanting to get revenge on Umayya and his now adult son, Safwan (voice of MICK WINGERT).
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Despite being a computer-animated offering, it doesn't seem likely a lot of kids will be interested.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For violence/warfare and some thematic elements.
