Red State - 5 out of 5
|Is that a store brand Edward Cullen?|
|Apparently, that one officer doesn't believe the man's fishing story and how it was, "this big!"|
Based on the nutjobs who "lovingly" yell, "God hates fags;" the Westboro Baptist Church, Smith crafted a unique, chilling movie about a group of religious fanatics who adore the hellfire and brimstone approach to loving the Lord. Not only do they love the pitchforks and flames licking your feet, they also like automatic weapons and murdering those they believe have sinned against the maker. Well, some high school students desperate to do what all high school boys are desperate to do (have intercourse) answer an online ad that promises the visceral touch of a lady. However, they find it was a trap laid by the church and now they are in a life and death situation...and things only get worse as the government decides to take action against the church, who is considered a terrorist cell on our national soil.
|See this young man (played by the very talented Michael Angarano), he wants to get laid and it ends up putting him into danger. The lesson: Sex is dangerous...but still worth it!|
|I think Kevin Pollack is trying out his Robert De Niro|
impression. Oh, by the way, Kevin Pollack is in this movie.
|Damn if Milton isn't still looking for his stapler.|
|Parks...like a boss!|
|Goodman is intense in this one!|
Surprise is the only word I can use to sum up how I felt after watching Red State. I went into it expecting to be...well, I expected to hate the film because of the last few Smith films I saw. However, once the film started and all the way to the epic third act, I was hooked and when the credits rolled, I sat in my recliner with my jaw dropped. Kevin Smith threw a curve ball out of Hollywood and what an amazing throw it was!
