I noticed the box proudly touted "better than Aliens vs. Predator!" It didn't hit me at the time, but that quote meant absolutely nothing. Moreover, it's a lie. They could've dredged up some positive statements like "will not rape your grandfather!" or "isn't racist at dinner parties!" for the box without boldly lying to me.The reason Aliens vs. Predator exists, for better or worse, is because the featured monsters are themselves scary and interesting. AvH skips the initial set up movies generally created for such match-up flicks and goes straight to copying the bout itself. You can't do that! That would be like making a Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman clone, calling it Brankenstein Meets The Wolfperson, and expecting people to not shit all over your film.I'm not going into specifics as to why exactly this movie sucks so bad, because I knew this was going to be a piece of shit going in. I just wasn't prepared.Goddamn you for suggesting this film, Gabe and box!
Kelly C (it) wrote: Despite the cover, don't mistake this for another American History X. It's not. It's something different altogether. It isn't an action flick. It isn't big on crime and violence. All that happens at the beginning of the movie. It isn't a courtroom drama. It isn't a love story.What it is is an endearing little piece designed to make you think. It's much, much too short and I think they could have made it a full length film with more excitement and still preserved the powerful message this movie contains. There are some weak spots (like the stereotypical so-angry-I-can't-stand-it bald Neo Nazi screaming upwards at the sky while his jackets slips down his shoulders and his fists clench), but there are some must-see scenes that make the whole movie worth it.The lawyer has some poignant words about Joseph's Coat of Many Colors in relation to the interweaving of the races that comprise society. One of the most memorable and one hell of a WONDERFULLY acted scene is when the lawyer tries to get this young Neo Nazi to see the error of his ways by not just defending a client who doesn't care about anything but getting the lightest sentence possible, but by teaching the young man about regret, the fallibility of hate, and about using all he has learned to defend himself. Worth watching - just don't expect a blockbuster, but a thought-provoker.
