Red State

NYT Review
Kevin Smith’s “Red State" is a horror-action move, but what it does best is talk. -- A. O. Scott Read the review

Wants so badly to push viewers' buttons, but struggles to reach them more often than not. full review

William Goss,

For all its boisterous profanity and splattery violence, the film is more of a weary sigh than a sputtering volley of indignation. full review

A.O. Scott, New York Times

Add a bunch of forgettable characters (including a one-note Melissa Leo) and an ending which flirts with (but then flees from) a truly provocative climax, and you've got a project which perhaps only Rob Zombie could have made something of. full review

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

Red State is cleverly contrarian enough to get a rise out of almost any audience. full review
