River Runs Red Reviews

    It's interesting that this topical story, especially in the wake of the George Floyd murder, should be so poorly reviewed by non-blacks...

    It has uncanny resemblance to what is happening in our society today with the police and black children dying. Corruption runs amuck in this movie.

    This was the absolute worst movie I've seen! Horrible acting, and poorly scripted. The judge was 26 with a 23 year old son.

    How in the world is there a 78% audience average for this stinker? Scroll through the glut of 1 Star reviews. This is the perfect movie for those fantasizing about a white-cops-killing-blacks narrative that simply doesn’t exist.

    Depressing film all the way through to the end. Typical John Cusak film.

    (SPOILERS) The film is painful to watch considering it's noteable leading characters, namely John Cusack and George Lopez. Performances are the highlight of the film but cannot distract from the nonsensical, sluggish, desperate attempt at social commentary that IS the entire plot. Officer involved shootings, police impunity and black and brown discrimination in the American criminal justice system are timely, terrible realities - and the films portrayal of a Black (biracial) and Latino family in the middle of it all, yet never mentioning BLM or DACA, price the film to be about as out of touch with the subject matter as you can get. The most infuriating of the film's fails is encapsulated in the main character played by Diggs, who's only son is shot by police and who is also a judge. And yet as the only African American judge in the circuit, he is somehow blithely unaware of police impunity, prosecutorial misconduct, racial disparities in the justice system and so on... He is stunned at the fact that the city's investigators found no foul play in his sons death, and even more stunned that they offered financial compensation in lieu of his son's life. Lopez's character is tough to swallow as well, he's more "street-wise" than Diggs, but despite being a former gangster has never sought justice for his son or even watched the footage of his officer-involved execution.

    River runs red is a very amateurish made film. The movie has strong subject matter and starts off like it could be a decent thriller but the awful directing is the problem here. The acting is stiff, the framing is awful, the camera work is terrible, everything production wise about the film screams amateur. It’s a shame because the movie has a decent cast and it could’ve been a good revenge thriller. But what we have here almost feels like A student short film.

    No doubts that this film made by amateurs, same cliche of revenge movies except this one is the worst. everything in the movie was Poor, starting from the plot to the performance until the ending. Skip it and you will never regret
