 : I believe Freeze is good enough.  It compiles your Python to bytecode,
 : creates a C module which defines the bytecode as a big char array,
 : then links that C module with the Python interpreter.  It's possible
 : to hack the bytecode out again and Decompyle it, but it's not trivial.

And you can always UPX the resulting binary to make it even more
obfuscated.
