2.5/5. Anne Hathaway gives a solid performance, but most of Havoc is cringy and embarrassing. Some of it is supposed to be that way (i.e. white, rich high-schoolers acting gangsta), but some of it is not (how the movie handles some dark themes). All in all, not a movie that you need to watch, but there are definitely worse films.

Funny how much more famous the actors playing the background gangsters got than the one playing the leader.

11/11/2016: Just an ok movie. A really great cast with a decent plot, but other than the beauty of Hathaway it wasn't all that entertaining or intense.

Channing Tatum was basically an extra in this movie.

This movie reminds me of something the late comedian George Carlin once said, "You take 5 white guys and you take 5 black guys and put em together for a week and what you won't have is 5 blacks guys talking like, 'Golly gee, we really won that big basketball game' but you will have 5 white guys talking like 'Yo slick, whuzzup...we be shootin hoops and mad playin, slammed those mofos."

This movie was about a bunch of bratty, spoiled, bored, rich white kids imitating "gangsta" or rap culture. They try to act and talk like black or Latino people but it comes off very superficial and fake. If it weren't for Anne Hathaway this movie would have been extremely boring. Anne plays a white teenager who along with her friends decides to hang out with Latino gang members to get out of her boring suburban life. It turns out to be more intense than she expected and gets into trouble.

A train wreck in every sense of the word. Kind of like passing a wreck on the side of the road and not wanting to look away for a few moments. Pretty bad if the rumors are true that Anne Hathaway wouldn't do press for this so it went straight to DVD.

A movie that I felt tried a little bit too hard to make a statement that could of have been a lot more effective.

The movie explores a group of teens who have too much time on their hands, and are kids of extremely rich parents. They try to be hard, be in a gang, and do dangerous things. When a couple of the girls get involved with some Mexicans and their gang, something major happens on the bad or wild side.
The movie had potential to be gripping and have huge effective. The potential was absolutely there but it just didn't move me. The statement was not made that could have been.

The best thing qabout this movie, and the only reason I restarted to watch it, were all the random actors in this. Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shiri Appleby, Tuco Salamanca, Freddy Rodriguez, young Josh Peck, pre-Step Up Channing Tatum, and most importantly of all...

...a completely random shot of Tommy Wiseau's face advertising The Room. I kind of want to give it all the stars just for that.

Terrible characters and a weak screenplay, Havoc has a great performance from Anne Hathaway and interesting scenes but as a whole is somewhat of a bore.

HAVOC was never released in theaters and man is there a reason why. This film is so dreadful, so forced, and so phony, you truly want to take back Barbara Kopple's two Oscars. Thank god she has not made another fiction film. Sadly, HAVOC is so inane it ain't any fun like a truly bad movie should be.

Freddy Rodriguez was awesome. Great young cast, too.

The movie that my parents thought I was watching porno...

The only movie in which you'll hear Anne Hathaway and Joseph Gordon-Levitt drop the n-word... yup.

Crash, Thirteen and Kids mix together with Anne Hathaway. Lackluster directing, but solid performances. Disappointing ending.

They were done with playing it safe. When Allison (Anne Hathaway) and Emily (Bijou Phillips) leave their rich suburb for a joyride through East L.A., they glimpse a frightening landscape of drugs, violence and gang brutality. But as their fear turns to infatuation, the friends find themselves seduced by a dark and dangerous world - where a pretty girl can get anything she wants...except a second chance.

also star Channing Tatum, Johnny Vasquez, Josh Peck, Shiri Appleby, Michael Biehn, Raymond Cruz, Samuel Bottoms, Laura San Giacomo and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

directed by Barbara Kopple.

Its decent, theres a million films like this but there was a little more in this one but not enough.
July 8, 2013
There are some interesting parallels between this and the recent Spring Breakers. Like Selina Gomez this was Hathaway shedding her teeny credentials. In fact that both films come with similar plots and morals. That is where the interest ends though because like Spring Breakers this is vacuous and almost entirely not compelling.
