Red State


"Kevin Smith's recent public contractual spat with Adam Carolla offers more interest than Red State"
Kevin Smith's conventional action thriller is well worth a watch but fails to leave an impression. The story follows a group of slow witted teenagers that rush off to a waiting woman that promises sex, of course all is not what it seems. I won't shit on this film as it does what it say it will, and at 88 minutes it doesn't let you become bored.

The film has a Waco siege like plot with the crazed leader leading a sacrifice
 service with the unwilling sex crazed Southern teens as helpless victims. The plot although may not sound dull it lacks depth and all the plot seems an excuse for women with guns and game console style like head shots.

Kevin Smith's recent public contractual spat with Adam Carolla offers more interest than Red State, maybe Smith will get a break and direct the next Mission Impossible, however this is unlikely as even that has become more high brow as of late. In the past weeks we've had great releases like Kill List, Drive, The Skin I live In, if you've gone through all them and are lonely on a Friday night this may just do the trick.
