A pointless and ultimately pretentious film
17 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is about 3 neo-Nazis attacking a Jewish("Is it Hannukah? Is it Passover?" the Father awkwardly and unconvincingly asks at the beginning of the film to his child just so we all know they are indeed Jewish) family on the youngest son's birthday.

What follows is 70 minutes of found-footage(yeah, it's one of THOSE films) garbage as the Nazis terrorise the family and film it all. THat's pretty much it. There is no suspense at all, there is no script, and it is clearly pretty much all improvised, and I think it's fair to say that none of the actors in this film have ever been to an improv class in their lives, as there is at least two Jewish slurs and three F words every 60 seconds, and outside of that, are completely incapable of constructing a sentence. The acting from the three antagonists isn't dreadful, Ian Roberts as "Three" is decent, a former rugby player, Dancing With The Stars contestant, gay rights activist and all-round nice guy in real life. His decision to be in this abomination of cinema was bizarre, but he tries his best. One of them tries way too hard to be like Matthew Lillard in Scream, and the other guy isn't bad either, but the director made him a completely ridiculous character(more ridiculous than Stu Macher 2.0 and Crystal Meth Addicted Rapist). Seriously, no one could make that bizarre and sleep-inducing bathroom scene any good. Also, whose idea was it to have "Three" wear a mask over his ski-mask at the beginning of the film, to the point where everything he says is muffled? Ridiculous. As for the rest of the cast, they are pretty dreadful. The Dad is the absolute worst, and is almost more dislikeable than the Nazis with his absolutely unreal emotions and actions during the ordeal.

At the end, we are randomly told how there are 80,000 hate crimes every year in the US. AND? Do you think this has changed anyone's views on anything? Do you think if you showed this to a group of 1000 fascists, that even one would change their opinions? The answer is no. People that are calling this "Powerful" are either plants or idiots. This is a weak and pretentious film, and Bressack has proved himself as a lazy and undeserving film-maker. The only reason I give it a Two is because giving a 1 to a film with Ian Roberts as a neo-nazi just isn't right.
