superficial
10 July 2016 | by donlouisSee all my reviews

A burning, exciting topic in a completely superficial documentary, based on genuine footage from TV, police archives and social media only. Viewers have no chance to go deep into any of the stories when someone was shot again in the US. All we can see is a bunch of claptrap footage from the once-happy-past (yes, babies are so innocent and cute) and the predictable present: another innocent person was gunned down. And another one. And another one. Perhaps filmmakers are tired to explain over and over again how crazy is weapon regulation in the US - but come on men, if you are tired of the topic, don't shoot a movie about it. This is tabloid: melodramatic but totally empty.
