'The Interview' and why it shouldn't be released

I can NOT stop seeing news and social media posts about North Korea and The Interview.  Seriously, if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you are living under a rock.
One thing that is driving me crazy is that people are calling Sony a "coward" for not releasing the movie.  All in the name of Freedom of Speech.
First of all, why is it so important that we have access to some movie and put lives at risk?  Is it really worth it to be able to go see a movie and have the chance to get your head blown off?  I don't know if this would really actually happen, I mean it would be really hard to plant bombs around several theaters around our whole huge country.  But what if it was only 1 theater?  What if only 200 people got their heads blown off?  Would it be worth it?

Freedom of Speech means I have the OPTION to say what I want.  Not that I will say what I want.
