BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas, and other states (mostly Southern) are trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias and the invading forces, in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.
Let's be honest here, this movie will never win an Oscar and neither will the two actors, the plot is ridiculous, the acting poor and you find it hard to make out what the lead male is saying half the time.
All that said, it actually works like a video game with the viewer right there in the middle of the action and you actually start liking and wanting the two main players to succeed in their task - its pretty intense and the action never stops and surprisingly, I actually started to enjoy the movie - one of the more enjoyable movies I have seen recently. I would rate more of a 7.5/10 but will go for the higher 8 on the IMDb rating system because I did enjoy it, as stupid as it is!
