Summary: Red State unfolds in a small town dominated by a fundamentalist preacher, Abin Cooper. It tells the story of three high school boys who, on their way to an internet arranged meeting with a woman, end up crossing paths with Cooper. This movie is has some big actors in the film like John Goodman, Kyle Gallner and Anna Gunn. But this movie lacks on characters and this movie is not re-watchable at all and to be honest this movie is kind of forgettable.
Excerpt: Three high school boys go off in search of internet sex and find themselves kidnapped by a heavily armed religious cult. Kevin Smith's first attempt at a "grown up" film, Red State is an off-beat thriller with horror overtones that continually tries and occasionally succeeds at confounding your expectations. It begins as a Porky's style road movie, veers into torture porn territory only to become a siege thriller.
Summary: Christian Religious fanatics feeling though they are right and everyone else is filth hold down at a cult plantation and have a stand off with the feds. Love how this shows these Fanatics are willing to do whatever they can to remain right, no matter who it hurts, sick..

Summary: A group of three guys are on the way to answer an ad from a girl. One of them gets caught by a preacher. Church goers turn violent against the police. Had a good screenplay with quotes from the characters: Keenan- “People just do the strangest things when they believe they're entitled. But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.” Pastor Abin – “You destroyed your spirit in a waste of shame.
Summary: I kept hearing so much hype about this Kevin Smith movie that I thought it would be something spectacular.In my opinion, It was nothing spectacular at all.Before it started, It seemed to be over & the best thing about it was John GoodmIan.I also heard it was a horror flick & if this was it, Red State was no horror flick
Summary: Kevin Smith's first non-comedy is a big change up from his normal routine. There is a great deal of wordy, but heady dialogue that I found intriguing and all the characters have conflicting ideas on what they consider the 'right' thing to do. It's only fault is that, after the initial set-up, it turns into a quick paced action style flick that shoots bullets and ideas at rapid fire and the whole thing is over with too soon.
Summary: John Goodman was pretty awesome in his role, however, I was expecting much more as a whole out of this film. Kevin Smith might have had a message here, but all I saw was a lot of violence and easy jokes at the expense of the radical right.
Cinematic junk food and poking fun of Westboro this is a fun change of direction for Smith

Excerpt: Bursting onto the independent film circuit with his debut film "Clerks", Kevin Smith emerged as an exciting new voice in independent cinema, with Smith soon developing a reputation for films featuring clever dialogue and frequent pop culture references, though despite his early films showing great promise, he soon seemed to be selling out his writing talent for the easier laughs of dick and fart jokes with many of his fanbase seeing the controversial "Dogma" which poked...
It does require a fair amount of stretching your imagination, but it's a heck of a lot of fun

Excerpt: The Phelps family and their Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, United States do get hounded a lot for their extreme views against homosexuality, picketing at fallen soldiers' funerals, holding up signs such as "Thank God for 9/11," "God Hates Fags," and "Thank God for AIDS." These people have rightfully been branded as a hate group, but director Kevin Smith takes religious fanaticism to a whole new level; he adds guns. Lots of guns.
