The Westboro Baptist Church planned to protest Red State at its premier at the Sundance Film Festival. Kevin Smith in turn planned a counter protest which he and his fans took part in. At the premiere the counter-protesters heavily outweighed the handful of Westboro protesters who showed up. This occurred 12 years after Smith's first film to tackle religious controversy, Dogma (1999), drew protests from certain sects of the Catholic Church, one of which Smith jokingly took part in himself.

I have to say I absolutely hated this movie. With a passion. Seeing this flick getting an average rating of above 6 is something I can't wrap my head around.
I already went into this movie with fairly low expectations. Monday night, nothing on TV, so we decided to watch a movie. Unburdened by living up to high expectations, Red State still managed to disappoint massively. What an absolute abysmal attempt of a movie this was. The characters have no depth at all, you don't get any backgrounds whatsoever. There's not even an introduction in this movie, it just rushes to the main event. Then followed by an incredibly long, incredibly boring cliché-laden monologue of the main antagonist. Who is a lot less 'demonic' or crazy than you'd expect.
The movie then drags in a police force out of nowhere, and continues to be largely unrealistic. Suddenly the protagonist becomes an FBI agent, who you haven't even heard of halfway through the movie. Lets just say it doesn't help feeling connected to this movie or any of its characters. Red State then continues to an incredibly weak plot. I've tried, but I honestly can't find anything positive to say about this film. Weak story, characters don't have any depth, camera-work is questionable at best and irritating at times, no logical build-up whatsoever, weak plot.. This movie simply does not deliver in any area. I wouldn't recommend watching this to anyone. Very, very weak effort.
