Kevin Smith – who is best known for his comedies – delivers a real nail biter with his new shoot um up, Red State.
The movie starts with three high school kids who find a woman online and make plans to meet up and get their sexxy time on. Then when they get to her trailer shit gets crazy and the movie goes buck nutty. I was blown away, I turned this film on thinking it was a documentary style spoof about religious wackos and boy was I wrong.That’s really all I can say without blowing the movie. Don’t go to the film website and watch the trailer cause it spoils the movie, the YouTube video below is a teaser clip and it shows you just enough.
This flik is violent and preachy and I loved it. There are some shocking scenes that will definitely catch you off guard and leave you wondering, who’s gonna die next. I’ve already said too much. The only downside of this film was John Goodmans performance, I can’t quite put my finger on it but he just wasn’t believable. The main character, the preacher (Michael Parks) was the shit and he stole the film. This film can be found on itunes and OnDemand video service for a fee and will be available on NetFLIX someday.
With that said I rate it at 4 outta 5 boners. Religious people loved it too here’s what they thought…
