Fantastic watch, will watch again, and do recommend.
This one really flew under the radar, and I almost skipped it until I saw Brittany Snow, and had I know Dave Batista was also involved, I would have sought this out.
Let me get this out of the way: the premise is a succession of the southern united states from the Union with an initial strike against a civil target. This is what “The South will rise again” means, this is what everyone flying the Confederate Battle Flag is signifying when they display the symbol of a terrorist organization.
That said, this is an amazingly shot depiction of a horrible attack on civilians. The follow camera style gives you all the feeling of “found footage” (unfortunately there is a little shaking cam in action), without all the overhead and mislead about where the camera is, someone has to hold it, and “who edited this together”. It is really immersive, and the audience learns about the situation (quickly, I might add) right alongside the characters.
The story hardly wastes any time throwing us into chaos and survival. The best part is that Brittany Snow is just a college girl, smart and capable, but not combat ready and not that great of a survivalist. We get Dave Batista playing the stereotypical “Rock Role” of being former military, but instead of being a witty, smoldering pretty boy, they layered on substance to his character, and let him be gun ready.
There are good twists, not a lot of complex multi-threading (at least for a city at war), all good action, and a ton of immersive realism.
The biggest problems with this movie are the most realistic ones: in the times of a domestic war, there are going to be 4 sides: invaders, defenders, abstainers, and criminals: people that are just going to take the opportunity to do whatever and hurt whomever they want before someone kills them.
Honestly, the more I think about it, the better this movie seems. I’d probably expand the ending though, in the very least there should have been an epilogue. At it stands, the movie just sort of ends, but it is possibly by design.
_Bushwick’s_ reach exceeds its grasp, but considering that over-ambition is just one of the myriad of things working against it, it’s amazing that _Bushwick_ is even as good as it is.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Fun one-shot mayhem
Like others, I heard about the film because Aesop Rock posted on Facebook saying he was doing the score. So I wasn’t expecting much beyond a cool soundtrack…
From the first scene, it’s apparent that winning an Oscar isn’t the top priority. The dialogue isn’t fluent and the acting is stunted, and we’re thrown in with the action almost right away: streets are burning, we don’t know why, let’s get the hell out of here. The top priority, it seems, is creating a video game-like war-torn corner of NYC through which the protagonists must try and survive. And it does this well.
It only took a few minutes for me to start honestly enjoying it. The main driving force is the perspective: a single hand-held camera doing long continuous takes, so the whole movie, having been edited to cut different takes seamlessly together, runs like an entire 90 minute one-shot. It makes you feel as if you’re there with them, experiencing the action unfold, no tea break, and the ridiculous plot and forced acting combine to make it feel like you’ve stepped directly into a ’90s B-movie or a shoot’em up arcade game set in Brooklyn. It’s really pretty cool, and almost makes me think that the silly plot and acting were intentional. Maybe, maybe not.
If you’re looking for a political thriller, a thinking man’s action movie, cool martial arts/fight scenes, or any amount of emotional realism, look elsewhere. But if you’re happy with a mindless yet oddly engrossing bang bang movie, this might be fun.
I have never taken the time to write a review until now. Bad acting throughout… really bad acting. The whole setup is silly and, did I mention the bad acting, the unrealistic scenarios on top of the bad acting and the bad acting.
What is more troubling, is the fact that they use Texas, a white militia, attacking Brooklyn because it is full of people of color and many nationalities, so in essence, the director is saying, people of Texas, White people and better yet the south as the actor describes the militia being comprised of the South only, are the ones behind the secessionist movement. It feels like a bitter democrat upset they lost the election and wants to create more division in this country by creating a divisive and polarizing argument of the current state of the country.
I am just furious I wasted two hours of my time watching this. Plus the bad acting!
