a view into how the FBI sets up kids
15 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

...to become their next anti terror wins.

This brandon guy is a disgusting rat.

At first I felt lots of hope seeing guys like this making a change in LA during Katrina. Brandon's facade quickly fell as he showed how quickly his "morals" and self worth went down the drain when he realized he'd never be as important as he wanted in the anarchist community. The anarchist community doesn't have room for egomaniacs, but the FBI will let you be someone special and pat you on the back as you set up young kids by pressuring them to make bombs and commit violent actions.

Had Brandon not been in their life, this just may not have happened. They looked up to him as he told them not to be "pussies".

All in all, excellent movie, but what a lowlife.
