God Bless America is an excellent film, taking a gory and darkly comedic look at the insanity that grips our culture. Don't mistake the violence as pointless however, God Bless America asks real questions as it deconstructs some of society's most mundane actions and asks us to go beyond in order to see how the western lifestyle has poisoned our souls and our hearts.

Very dark and gruesome but very thoughtful on the topic it conveys and I can relate to it since I'm one of the many who can't stand the celebrated mediocrity that we see in this day and age.

Careful. This one bites.

Bobcat Goldthwait nos entrega su película más oscura. Y eso es mucho decir, si usted ha visto sus trabajos anteriores como las magníficas "Shakes The Clown", "Sleeping Dogs Lie" y "World's Greatest Dad". En esta película más que incendiaria, Goldthwait nos cuenta la historia de Frank (Joel Murray) un hombre divorciado con una hijita insoportable quien, al haber sido despedido de su trabajo injustamente y al saber que tiene un tumor cerebral inoperable, decide hacerle un favor a la humanidad: asesinar a todos aquellos que hacen del mundo actual algo insoportable: jovencitas protagonistas de reality shows, líderes de opinión de ultraderecha y homofóbicos, fanáticos religiosos y demás escorias humanas. Lo acompaña en su matanza la adolescente Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), quien tiene más sed de sangre que su mentor. "God Bless America" deja a las películas "Falling Down" o "Natural Born Killers" como obras inocentes e ingenuas y aunque su tono es cómico, es una cinta controversial en mayúsculas que invita a la discusión y al debate.

A fine satire, not one that will make you laugh out loud, but the observations on the absurdities of modern culture and living are superbly examined here.

It was like watching a movie that I would have written. Poorly done, but the dialogue, plot and motivations were so satisfying it was ever so slightly disturbing.

The movie opens with his thoughts about his inconsiderate neighbours. That's me. And then there's the office rant. I'm gonna like this movie. And although there is alot more of his frustrated ranting, and a great scene in the cinema, i became a little disappointed when it turns into Bonnie and Clyde. I'd also like to add, why does he even bother to sit and watch the trash on TV? He could watch DVD's, movies, or documentaries would be much more up his street.

A revelation on how American popular culture has been perverted. This is a blunt, and tactful representation of what society will not admit. Here, the victims perpetuate the problem, and do not concern themselves with the collateral damage, nor the destruction of the truth in people's lives.

Fun and worth a watch. The premise has more potential than is actually executed. The style of the societal criticism is off-putting at times. Dialogue was a bit stiff, especially during the social commentary.

I think the movie had a good premise, but wasn't able to bring it to its full potential. I can't believe its only 8 o' clock.

Bobcat Goldthwait's God Bless America is a very entertaining dark comedy that is nice to see a dark comedy done well. After watching it, my sister thought it was stupid which I figured she wouldn't like it as she's, perhaps, not a fan of the dark comedy genre which the last film from that genre that she seen was You're Next to hitch I agree with her that that's a stupid movie. The acting is great, and the chemistry between the main characters is quite adorable that is more like a partnership then a relationship. The writing is really great, although it gets a bit out of hand with the vulgar language or the rants that last for a bit too long. The dark humor in this is really funny which seeing a teenager talk about wanting to kill next just made me laugh for odd reason which got me very invested in this. I see what it's trying to do and it made it thought-provoking and is a way to look at world problems these days. God Bless American is a really great indie film that I like to see more of the actors that were in this.

God Bless America had the potential to be a classic satire; two people fed up with the current selfish nature of the world decide to exact "vigilante justice"...by killing every reality star, Bible thumper, and right wing nut they can; but with an over-reliance on preachy monologues, and very irritating characters, God Bless America is really only for the most pessimistic viewer. Props goes to the love for Alice Cooper though.

If you've got a twisted sense of humor and a disdain for mean people, reality TV, radio shock-jocks, and news-sensationalizing networks like Fox News, you will love this quirky movie! The script is brilliantly written. It will shock you and make you laugh out loud.

God Bless America starts out hot, but slowly and miserably drags on, leaving a bad taste in your mouth at conclusion. Fan of satire? You'll love the first hour.

Brilliantly made. Creates political controversy and bashes the incompetence of modern society's politics, tv, etc,..

Every dialogue seems to be a very scripted, pretentious rant about what people usually dislike about mainstream trends, but it's very hard not to feel good when they start taking out assholes. So, I think the message is not something people won't take seriously, but at least the ride is enjoyable. The only bad thing is that I'm left with an empty feeling when they didn't get to kill all the people Frank knew from before he started the journey.

Thrillingly dark and unnervingly hilarious, God Bless America is a satirical take on modern society like no other.

"I mean, why have a civilization anymore if we no longer are interested in being civilized?"
This is going down on a list of greatest quotes ever.

This takes a lot of what I hate about America and shoots it in the fucking face. Now don't get my wrong, I love my country. And this movie existing is one of the reasons. We have the power to criticize it. Think of this movie as a follow up to Natural Born Killers. While that was satire about how the media is poisoning the country, this is about attacking the public that fell victim to that poison. I love how easily this movie side steps which political party it lands on. Shoots them all but lets you know that I agree with things from both sides. What I'm really against is your complete lack of moral and human decency. This is one of those movies that you either are along with or you aren't, you get or you don't. If you get it, you wish that Frank had a few more monologues, if you don't, you'd think it was advocating random shooting sprees. And I'm finally glad that someone publicly spoke out about Juno and Diablo Cody. The script is great and Joel Murray's performance turns it into gold. Newcomer Tara Lynne Barr surprised me and I'm really excited to see what becomes of her after this. The relationship that the develop is really wonderful. There are some really sweet moments in this film between the two leads that feel like they should belong in another movie. But they work so well to develop this bond between them it only strengthens it. It isn't a huge film, without a large budget, but well made. It never falls victim to it's lack of money. With it's brilliant dialogue and good direction it's hard to believe that a guy who found fame in the 80's by talking weird made this. Really look forward to seeing what come's next from Bobcat Goldthwait.
