God Bless America Reviews

Page 1 of 6

For a movie that purports to be a statement about how mean-spirited and crass we've become, Goldthwait has no qualms piling on. Blowing a baby away with a 12 gauge - real or imagined - is about as bottom of the barrel as it gets.

It never amounts to much more than a one-dimensional piece of revenge fantasy that isn't any better than the subjects it's satirizing.

Broad, mean, with inconsistent political aims and uneven performances.

Here is a film that begins with merciless comic savagery and descends into merely merciless savagery. But wow, what an opening.

This movie's idea of topical satire is to score points off of My Super Sweet 16 and legendary American Idol reject William Hung. Timely!

Goldthwait shows a knack for pin-pointing the sulphurous hues within the kaleidoscopic rainbow of alienation and frustration, but has sadly failed to paint any of them black.

Goldthwait presents an ironic dichotomy: In his fervor to rail against multiple examples of media missteps, the filmmaker unintentionally delivers a mistep of his own.

In this "Falling Down" of pop-cultural observation, Goldthwait forgets the thrill of the chase; he's more concerned with piercing verbal barbs than actual suspense.

An overly bleak film ready to write off the world and go down in a blaze of gunfire, both middle fingers raised.

Through it all, the film never comes up with a way to convince us Murray's behavior has any internal logic.

Slant Magazine

By wholeheartedly taking its main characters's side instead of complicating or censuring his homicidal vigilante crusade, it proves inanely one-note and preachy.

Although it promises much, the film ultimately fails to deliver the substance, with the stream of deadly bullets making a goddamn mess but never quite hitting the artery

It's not that you don't sympathise with the characters' sentiments it is, though, that you can't actually go along with their agenda.

The real problem is there's just not enough plot on which to hang the message that mean people suck.

When the monotonous squib-popping subsides, the movie is often static and talky, lapsing into criticism-hedging qualifications and anti-everything speechifying.

The new film's fire-power is too sloppy, too wide-spread; it barely scathes even the easy target of an American television talent show complete with Simon Cowell clone.

I sympathize with its attitudes... But Goldthwait -- as writer and director -- doesn't know what to do with this except rage incoherently and ineffectively at the state of the world...

Sicko one-trick pony film, whose black comedy is tiresome and mostly unfunny.

Mr. Goldthwait's screenplay is essentially a comedy act fleshed out with a story he doesn't try to make convincing.

[I[n a culture of outrage, where even non-events are peeled apart by an army of amateur and professional complainers, Goldthwait has missed the boat.
