Red State unfolds in a small town dominated by a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper. It tells the story of three high school boys who, on their way to an internet arranged meeting with a woman, end up crossing paths with Cooper. This movie is has some big actors in the film like John Goodman, Kyle Gallner and Anna Gunn. But this movie lacks on characters and this movie is not re-watchable at all and to be honest this movie is kind of forgettable.

Christian Religious fanatics feeling though they are right and everyone else is filth hold down at a cult plantation and have a stand off with the feds. Love how this shows these Fanatics are willing to do whatever they can to remain right, no matter who it hurts, sick..

Now Kevin Smith is my third favorite filmmaker,so I had a lot of expecations for this film.let's start with the basics : the actors are great , the writing is great , the looks of the film is beautiful.now I really did enjoy this film.it wasn't as fun as i was hoping for it to be,but it was great.this is the kind of ilm that after you watch it,it sticks with you for quite a bit.it's a good movie.there are times were i felt bored,but overall I say see it,it's worth your time.

A group of three guys are on the way to answer an ad from a girl. One of them gets caught by a preacher. Church goers turn violent against the police. Had a good screenplay with quotes from the characters: Keenan- “People just do the strangest things when they believe they're entitled. But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.” Pastor Abin – “You destroyed your spirit in a waste of shame.” Too many conversations and the thrilling scenes lacked for a horror. Had some technical camera direction coupled with sincere acting but lacks the moments to keep you interested. Red State seems like a message regarding church, state, evils of technology and morality instead of a film.

I kept hearing so much hype about this Kevin Smith movie that I thought it would be something spectacular.In my opinion, It was nothing spectacular at all.Before it started, It seemed to be over & the best thing about it was John GoodmIan.I also heard it was a horror flick & if this was it, Red State was no horror flick

"Red State" by Yojimbo

Three high school boys go off in search of internet sex and find themselves kidnapped by a heavily armed religious cult. Kevin Smith's first attempt at a "grown up" film, Red State is an off-beat thriller with horror overtones that continually tries and occasionally succeeds at confounding your expectations. It begins as a Porky's style road movie, veers into torture porn territory only to become a siege thriller. Smith's willingness to dispose of key characters on a whim always keeps you guessing, but it also means that you never really connect with any of them and his dialogue is a little too pleased with itself in places, turning into ranting monologues rather than genuine discourse. The plot is also rather too far fetched to be taken seriously as drama and it's not OTT enough to be co...
