Film Review – Red State

Fundamental Christians, with a big emphasis on the word ‘mental’, in a shootout with the police. Oh and the Christians kidnap three local lads looking to get laid, there’s rampant homophobia, and heaps of people get it in a big blown apart that hurt look their heads are everywhere kinda way.

Then don’t forget the humour. While gory, shocking and full of suspense, this film is also very funny. So how did all this come together into such a neat package, where the police and the Christians are all nuts? Director and writer Kevin Smith. The guy who did Clerks, Clerks II (duh), Chasing Amy, and about a dozen other awesome indie films.
