Red State Reviews

Matt Looker

The characters are one-dimensional, the plot is a shambles and the preaching gets so tedious you'll be praying yourself for divine intervention.

Smith's greatest failure with Red State is that he will provide Fred Phelps with an even bigger ego to go along with the boosted Google alerts he is bound to receive.

The film alternates between being heavy handed and moronic, and it seems to be informed by a 15 year olds' understanding of Waco filtered through the paranoid ramblings of a stoner.

Wants so badly to push viewers' buttons, but struggles to reach them more often than not.

Film School Rejects

A simplistic, poorly-constructed exercise in low-rent genre moviemaking. It's as if Kevin Smith made the movie just so he could promote it.

Smith isn't up to doing anything other than setting up caricatures and then knocking them down.

For better or worse, Red State just doesn't have the elements we expect from a Kevin Smith movie, and horror fans will feel especially ripped off with how little the film resembles anything that may be deemed conventional horror.

Kevin Smith's ambition outreaches his talent in Red State, a horror thriller with ultra-fanatical religion in its cross hairs, yet firing blanks in its commentary.

Ugly characterizations and simplistic preachiness negate the terror in Red State-a film that eventually proves horrific in ways unintended by writer/director Kevin Smith.

It's a really strange film, terribly violent on one level and on another filled with lengthy, long-winded philosophical discourses and blind alleys

Kevin Smith fans will be curious about Red State, but few others will be able to endure its tub-thumping attempts at topicality or its lack of storytelling skill.

Brian Orndorf

Part chiller, part lecture, Red State is a jumble of ideas and characterizations tossed haphazardly into an unnervingly disconnected motion picture, which often feels unfinished and calculated instead of winningly feral.

In its efforts to accommodate Smith's argument the storyline gets decidedly messy. The slacker has become didactic and it doesn't suit him one bit.

[Smith's] tedious foul-mouthed dialogue ... seems more obnoxious than ever when it brings action and suspense sequences to a grinding halt.

Billed as something of a horror movie, the shifting sands of its tone make it neither fish nor fowl, as Smith flirts with comedy, action and horror without carrying off any of them particularly convincingly.

a frustratingly fantastic movie that would be better and leave more of an impact if it bothered to take some kind of a side
