Storyline

"Americans" is a short, public service film starring 'Sean Penn' and Kid Rock, directed by Jameson Stafford. The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes portrayed by the media by confronting them head on. It reminds us that what really matters is that we're all Americans, with diverse thoughts, opinions and stances on issues. We are millions of unique, individual parts, the sum of which comprise a whole that is the shining beacon of freedom throughout the world. The film reminds us to be proud of our differences, and to never forget that we're all in this together as Americans. Written by Kid Rock

11 minutes of political irrelevance
6 November 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Americans" is an 11-minute short film written and directed by Jameson Stafford and the 2 stars in this movie, Sean Penn and Kid Rock, are actually co-writers. Let me start by saying that I quite like Sean Penn as an actor, but I do not really care about Kid Rock's music. This came out briefly before the Obama vs. Romney election 4 years ago and was obviously an attempt to show us no matter how much our opinions differ in terms of hot topics like gay marriage etc., we are still all Americans and can have a great time together despite our perceptions of what is right and wrong. The good thing is that this film gives both sides a speech although I would not be too surprised if Kid Rock is actually a pseudo Republican if he plays in a political movie starring Sean Penn, Hollywood's most outspoken liberal actor probably. Anyway, in terms of story and action this was not a particularly good watch, but fairly boring from start to finish and also somewhat predictable. I do not recommend the watch all in all.
