Read what critics are saying about Mike Church’s 1776 Masterpiece – The Road To Independence The Movie:

By Bradley J. Birzer – Our beleaguered republic has been blessed mightily with the artistry, dedication, wit, tenacity, and wisdom of Mike Church. Not only does he ask the questions that need to be asked, he also talks to the best men and women of our age. Anyone who has had the privilege of listening to Mike on his radio show knows hismodus operandi. He listens, he questions, he learns, he responds, and he listens some more. Behind his views stand the greats of western and American civilization.

Most importantly for our society, though, he reminds us—as members of this republic (Latin for “res publica” the “good thing” or the “common good”; not to be confused with the “greater good”)—what it means to be serious and meaningful citizens and what it means to be at our best. I certainly don’t mean to gush too much, but it’s hard not to do so when speaking or writing of Mike. He’s that important to our future—and, byour, I mean the citizens of the present and of the future of America as well as of the West.

In his stunning new animated film, “The Road to Independence,” Mike Church challenges the prevailing notions, such as they are, regarding the American Founding.  Neither Abraham Lincoln nor Ronald Reagan, he notes, were of the Founding generation, but, within the political right especially, these two men greatly have fundamental shaped our understanding of 1776 and 1787.  And, from the opening of the film to its end, Church points out that the prevailing interpretations of the Declaration of Independence—especially if focused on “all men are created equal”—are, at best, misinterpretations of the text and of the historical moment in which the text was written.  He does this through Jefferson’s own words from a 1821 interview.  Indeed, the entire film is based on original research and primary documents, all of which reveal the essence of the Revolution.

  • I bought this DVD years ago, but I think I loaned it to a liberal friend and it never returned. So recently when it came back in stock I jumped on it. Last week my wife and I watched it on our movie night and not only did my wife enjoy it, but I had forgotten what a great film it was. Entertaining, accurate and educational are the first words that come to mind, but there are many more that I don’t have space for here. Don’t let the fact that it’s an animated feature stop you from buying this DVD! Mike Church directed this just like a live action film. Camera shots and angles, scene transitions, sound effects, and actor performance are all worthy of any top USC film graduate. The art direction has the feel of realism including 3D without the need for cardboard glasses. Once again, any movie that my wife stays awake for and learns something is a winner, but history buffs like me will greatly enjoy it too. Get this for yourself, wife, kids and even your Crazy Uncle Charlie. This Director’s Cut also has great extras with some behind the scenes stuff for the tech or history geek…Guilty! Every day you wait to get this is a day that you’ll miss having ammo to argue with your Crazy Uncle Charlie!
