Movie Info

A pair of na´ve young girls learn that even the most insignificant actions can have lasting consequences in this music-driven take on teen culture starring Anne Hathaway and Bijou Phillips and directed by two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple. Influenced by the hip-hop thug lifestyle and seeking to explore life outside of their insulated, culturally homogenized suburb, pretty young teenagers Allison (Hathaway) and Emily (Phillips) set their sights on East L.A. to experience the

You'd at least expect a decent exploitation movie from this material.

This story of rich teens way out of their depth is chilling and nicely played. But it feels like a cautionary after-school movie spiced up with sex and violence.

Like Catherine Hardwicke's Thirteen, only with money, this is an engaging and frequently tense teen drama with a full-on performance from Anne Hathaway.

Director Barbara Kopple strays into territory occupied by James Toback and Catherine Hardwicke.

February 10, 2007 Full Review Source: Guardian

Despite the high-powered credits... this slight cautionary tale about slumming rich kids is a minor effort.

Yo! Dawg! This is a youth drama about bored white rich kids in L.A. acting black.

Combines documentary realism and an exploration of modern teen behavior within an intensely erotic drama of racial tension.

It shows that a movie can premiere on DVD and just tell a quality story, not some knock off action vehicle for a star past his prime.

Something tells me Hathaway won't be making The Princess Diaries 3.

Aside from the already-famous naked bits, there's just nothing here you haven't seen before. And smarter.

Audience Reviews for Havoc

Eh, this movie was kinda stupid and the characters were annoying...they got what they deserved.

Good, not great. I have to give Anne Hathaway credit for playing away from type, though, and doing a good job of it.
i would have liked the ending to be not quite so abrupt.

A cheap exploitation movie made cheaply, and it shows - repeatedly. It tries *so* hard to be meaningful and insightful and yet, but it ultimately presents scenes that shock to keep the viewers' attention. It's not Anne Hathaway's shining moment, either - and this is in spite of several topless and semi-topless scenes. Boring at best and ignorant and somewhat racist at worst. Watch the 'highlights' on Mr. Skin and skip this movie.
