Product Description

Product Description

In Middle America, three teenagers travel to Cooper's Dell after responding to an older woman's online invitation for sex. However, their schoolboy fantasy turns sinister as Christian extremists, led by the twisted preacher Abin Cooper (Michael Parks), hold them captive in a compound known as the Five Points Church. As the Pastor and his congregation embark on a reign of terror forcing the boys to witness executions before being prepared for their own death, they have to contend with the arrival of Federal Agent Joseph Keenan (John Goodman) and his team who are armed, dangerous and ready to bring them all down.

Red State is the story of 3 high-school lads who are desperate to get laid. Responding to an online advert, the guys show up at a remote trailer and at the insistence of the lady of the house, down their beers. Waking up confused and disorientated, it's clear the trio have been waylaid by the militant and bigoted 5-Points church (a thinly-veiled swipe at the Westborough Baptist Church), led by Pastor Abin Cooper (The brilliant Michael Parks - Kill Bill, Volume 2) who are renowned for picketing anything to do with homosexuality and amorality in society.

With the guys held hostage and about to "meet Jesus" at the hands of the church, the ATF coincidentally show up at the church compound to serve a warrant concerning the purchase of fully-automatic weapons, mere weeks before a change in the law prohibited ownership of them. It turns out the ATF are correct and a massive stand-off & resultant shoot-out ensues when said fully-automatic weapons are let loose. With the government's orders to 'clean-up' this domestic terrorist cell and the religious fanatics zeal, neither side is willing to back down, will anyone survive this complete political mess of church vs. state?

Well, where to begin? Red State is a political hand grenade quite simply, it's sure to inflame tensions both side of the fence as blame is equally apportioned. It's also immensely violent and in these respects really hasn't had to bite it's tongue to fit in with any studio's idea of acceptability (Director Kevin Smith is self-distributing the film).

The acting is fantastic, most notably John Goodman (

A surprisingly violent and striking film by Kevin Smith, no more ironic but critical and nightmarish in his approach to an absurd and excessive story of guns, rednecks and anti-state environment.
Smith leaves irony, a black and dark one, at the end, when the film seems to take another unpredictable direction.
But the good thing about it, is that this is not a torture film like the awful and pointless stuff produced by Eli Roth, but a moral provocation where, getting to end of the story, you do not feel confident you've been supporting the right side....
Smith is also talented in casting Michael Parks and Melissa Leo and giving them lifetime roles

Three school friends use a website to meet up with a woman who promises them shenanigans, it's certainly a night they will never forget...

While some have criticised writer/director Kevin Smith over some of his more recent films, he is still firmly regarded by many as the man behind cult classics such as Clerks and Mallrats - the sort of film which initially seem a bit puerile but reveal themselves to be full of warmth, clever observations and gloriously sweary narrative. In the initial scenes of Red State, banter between the three friends is sharp, sexually obsessed and very Smith-esque but Red State doesn't follow any formula and quickly becomes shocking. They are the victims of entrapment, a fundamental (with emphasis on the 'mental') Christian group has used an adult website in order to "harness the Devil's technique" and lure Godless perverts to cleanse America of its sin.

Those who felt that Smith had gone a bit 'Hollywood' have been silenced with Red State, this feels like a polished independent film which makes every effort to challenge the obvious. You never know what to expect from the film because the twists you see coming never happen, instead it heads off on a tangent and that constant sense of the unexpected gives it an added menace - anything could happen to anyone, no character is safe. Instead of a simple attack on religious zeal we get cynicism aimed at the police and the state itself.

As you can see from the broad range of reviews you'll either like this film or hate it,personally I regret this purchase but it was my own fault for being influenced by the cover art and quentin tarantino quote which I suspect he made without actually seeing this absolute rubbish.If like me you read the product description and think it sounds like a good movie you won't be alone but don't be decieved as it basically describes the entire plot except it makes it sound a hundred percent better than it actually is.I've given it 2 stars because Melissa leo and john goodman put in a good performance but that's the only positive thing that can be said about this film,don't waste your money and if you ignore this warning then good luck because you've got exactly 85 minutes of boredom ahead.2/10

Superb and very creepy performances, especially from Michael Parks and Melissa Leo. It's not like anything I've ever seen before, it's creepy, tense, action packed, explosive, funny, surprising, shocking . . . it really keeps you guessing as to where the film is heading. A very different film from the guy who brought us Jay and Silent Bob! :o)
