Storyline

When former Wall Street executive Peter Salem is released from prison, he heads for the small town of Bunker Hill, Kansas, where his ex-wife and their children have started a new life. Soon after he arrives in town, all power is lost - there is no electricity, and cars and computers suddenly shut down. Community leaders are at a loss to explain. Is it the rapture? A massive terrorist attack? Aliens? Cut off from the world, the town's militant past is reawakened and forces coalesce to protect citizens from an unseen enemy, represented to some by Mr. Farook, an elderly Pakistani immigrant who owns the local convenience store. The town's fear leads to the creation of a posse of gunmen, resulting in torture, illegal searches and eventually, murder. Written by mlc

Excellent!
29 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

Kevin Willmott's new film is a great mix of contemporary politics and reinvented western iconography in a true "American movie." BUNKER HILL examines post 911 society via a small Kansas town that is gripped by fear, prejudice, violence and paranoia. Sly echoes of Rod Serling, Sam Fuller, blacksploitation flicks and even TV's Gunsmoke abound. Saeed Jaffrey steals the movie as Mr. Farook, an Indian immigrant with a love for American westerns and six shooters. Beautiful landscapes and an excellent supporting cast back up James McDaniel who plays a troubled urban man who becomes a modern western hero. Red State meets Blue State. Main Street becomes Front Street. Cowboy hats. Horses. Big emotions. Showdown and all.
