    This thriller about child sex trafficking is well-intentioned but dramatically stilted.

    Part infomercial, part public-service announcement, Trade of Innocents carries such a suffocating human-rights burden that it never had much chance of becoming an actual movie. Yes, child trafficking is horrific; but embedding your raise-the-alarm mission in a film this inept runs the risk of arousing more amusement than activism.

    Aside from an additional 30 minutes or so of plot, Trade of Innocents offers no more than a middling episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."

    Not for the first time in films, noble intent is at odds with aesthetics.

    Unfortunately, with its unconvincing action, preachy script and flat performances, the picture winds up less moving than most typical journeyman documentaries on the subject.

    Trade of Innocents is as much a piece of social-justice campaigning as it is a work unto itself, an important fact to remember when considering its many flaws.

    Excellent film on a heart breaking subject. Applauding the effort of many caring hearts that came together to make this film possible. Astonished & forever changed...speaking from my middle-class American point-of-view & relative comfort and safety. Highly recommend this film. Full Review »
