    Slow paced, but it does give a strong - if not divided message @ the end.

    This film is just another pathetic attempt to demonize guns and portray gun ownership as some sort of dark cloud in peoples lives. Not even a nice try. What would be nice is if a film was produced showing the truth of the many lives that are saved everyday by people who are concealled carry holders who are still alive because murderers, robbers, rapists and home invaders were stopped before their devious plans could be carried out. Or how about a film that goes along with actual national statistics that indicate when people have to wait for police to arrive during a shooting rampage an average of 14.3 people are killed compared with 2.3 deaths when the rampage is stopped by armed citizens. Another interesting docudrama would be to show the devestating effects of Autralia's nationwide ban on guns and how its citizens are now helpless victims as armed robbery is up 68%, armed assaults are up 28%, home invastions are up 21% and so on. I think those who are brave enough to tell the truth would be surprised at the response and the support that they would receive from producing a high quality film on these topics I just mentioned, which would be in complete contrast to this film which drags on with useless, misleading content.

    Solid performances from Whitaker, Gay Harden, and Goldwyn make this story about the consequences of gun violence worth a watch.

    Es innegable que las historias son interesantes y emotivas, así como que tocan una temática muy propia de nuestro tiempo con la crudeza que lo amerita, pero es justo la excesiva variedad de historias lo que termina convirtiendo la cinta en un amasigo de subtramas que no termina de ser coherente. Algunas historias no calzan del todo salvo por detalles muy nimios que las relacionan temáticamente con las demás, por lo que generan la sensación de que son totalmente innecesarias, lo que se confirma con los desenlaces abruptos y simplones en que desembocan. Las dos historias principales adolecen también de finales abruptos y malogrados, fundamentalmente porque el de una es demasiado benevolente y el de la otra es más bien demasiado cruento.

    American Gun has an excellent cast and I really enjoyed the stories. Whitaker is one of the best actors out there.

    It seemed like it had a good message to send, but there was too many loose ends.
