Not an American-Hate film from Hollywood
17 March 2015 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This is not anti-American hate propaganda from Hollywood, as alleged by another reviewer. He's way off base. I don't know where he got that Red state, evil, middle American crap. These kids were never revealed as card-carrying republicans.

This is a film about a group of American teens with a sick, twisted view of defending our country. The maniacal leader, Brandon, holds ALL Arabs responsible for 9/11 and justifies ANY action perpetrated against ANY of them to be justified on that basis.

Profoundly, Brandon's attitude mirrors that of ISIS, which slaughters our innocent citizens because of our military's involvement in the wars in the M.E. I'm sure the other reviewer is as appalled at the crimes perpetrated by ISIS as are the rest of us.

This film is fiction (at least I'm not aware of any ties to actual events), but tragically I am sure that actions of this nature occur here to some degree. This film demands that we examine ourselves and do everything possible to ensure that we do not become our own worst enemy. I just hope it's not too late. Likewise, we should all be appalled by the actions perpetrated by this group of lunatics.

I have to credit Matt O'Leary in his portrayal of Brandon--great acting.

Still, I felt I left this movie without a sense of justice having been served. I really didn't care for the ending.
