Meea Lobsterman (mx) wrote: It is no "bullet-shit" that the enthralling independent film "American Gun" does fire major points on the American gun control issue within its intertwining plot. However, it is also no "bullet-shit" that "American Gun" did misfire with one of its story lines. A la "Crash", "American Gun" includes various characters within several story lines that focus on a controversial social issue. What struck me about "Crash" was its creative precision to detail on how the social issue (in 'Crash"- racism) all interconnected. In "American Gun" there are separate situations that are "bullet-proof", but hold no fundamental connective qualities on the gun control issue. Here are my on-target shots of "American Gun": 1) On target: Marcia Gay Harden was mesmerizing as a mother of a fallen youth assailant who murdered several students and teachers in school grounds three years ago. Her story focuses on how she combatively tries to overcome the tragedy , and her challenge to supersede the pain by avidly trying to support her other son. 2) On target: Forest Whitaker's captivating performance as a high school principal who is dealt with the challenge of a youth gun control problem at the school he pilots. In other words, "Run, Forest, Run" before your students run the asylum well-armed. 3) On target: Tony Goldwyn's golden acting duty portraying a police officer who is guilt-ridden that he could not be more proactive in preventing the aforementioned school violence tragedy. 4) On target: Novice Writer-Director Aric Avelino's film-making & screen writing machinery efforts in the School Gun Control and the Grieving Mother/Remorseful Officer story lines. Here are the misfires of "American Gun": 1) Misfire: Donald Sutherland's phlegmatic performance as a gun owner who tries to connect with his alienated granddaughter. 2) Misfire: The aforementioned storyline which had no relevance or impact to the American gun control issue. In other words, it had me gunning for more. OK, that's it! I am a gunner , I mean "goner" with this one! *** Average

Reece L (jp) wrote: The film starts out painting an idealistic picture of what America ought to be, an image repeatedly pontificated by the young and starry-eyed Mr. Smith, and then proceeds to show the rot under that glittering, gilded varnish defined by corrupt, fat-cat politicians more concerned with lining their pocketbooks, retaining power through re-election, and lining up job opportunities with major corporations after their stint in Washington has run its course than the ethical representation of the American people. Although it can be argued that the film is ultimately rooted in naivety, the hopeful call for the cyclical occurrence of generational improvement and an upheaval of crookedness is not only terrifyingly relevant in today's current political climate, it's incredibly affecting. After all, what 's more American than the quest for progress in the face of systemic, cynical stagnation and oppressive turpitude of a money-hungry establishment? These ideas are communicated through a witty script, wonderful performances, and an infectious belief in a better future that makes "Mr. Smith" an American classic.
Logan O (br) wrote: At first I was like this movie is really boring but trust me by the end you'll want to rewatch it. I loved how it wasn't constant blood and death and shooting like some hood movie that seem to be falsely portrayed although slow it really show the radical and non radical struggles of boys b the hood and trying to be accepted in both upper and lower classes on society. A must watch film.
