What are people saying?

  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Bushwick

    Its Birdman-style long takes and large scale (many locations both outside and inside a Bronx neighboorhood,) are impressive, even amazing, for a modestly budgeted indie film. Despite Bushwick starting near the fray, for an action flick, it grows tiresome and repetitive. There are also only 2 worthwhile dialogue scenes in the film, one that sums up its political-baiting logline, the other actual characterization.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Bushwick

    Give the directors props for their illusionary one-take aesthetic that gives the film some visual style and for vastly improving on their previous genre pic (Cooties). Unfortunately the barely there script that seems to mix insurgency and the 'purge' needed a lot more work. Cast is given little to do though Batista manages to improve his usual game here.

  • MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Bushwick

    In the current political climate -the Disunited States led by Dictator Trump are on the brink of chaos- this scenario is more than plausible: a coup d'etat by the New Right is inevitable. This John Carpenter's homage is the cinematic equivalent of a Rainbow 6 game. Yet, it is hard to match up with reality when sinister characters like Steve Bannon call the shots. The insurrection is being televised daily on Fox News

  • Effendi Ben Smith-Malick's rating of the film Bushwick

    Loved it. I could try to explain this, but fuck y'all with your 2.6 average rating. You hate entertainment. You're only here to judge films made on 16mm and projected to 4 people in a revival theater. This was Carpenter mixed with Whedon yet original. Plus it was hella fun.

  • Levi Miah's rating of the film Bushwick

    Meticulous action choreography, camera work and sound design - along with unobtrusive edits - keep the pace up and the atmosphere flowing between scenes, letting up occasionally for deeper character moments. Bautista handles those moments with a newfound brilliance, as well as flexing his usual physical expertise. The mirror this film holds to the present steeps it in tragic realism. A powerful and bleak prophecy.

  • Mcpeer's rating of the film Bushwick

    The worst film I saw at Sundance 2017. Two stars may be too generous, but I'll give one to Dave Bautista for expanding his range like we've never seen and Brittany Snow for being a champ. Buschwick is stupid, nonsensical, and utterly undisciplined - none of which are necessarily bad things - except when it's boring. Attempting the illusion of one unbroken take ala Rope, this feels like an expensive student film.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Bushwick

    Solid action thriller with an intense and visceral style. Both Bautista and Snow are great in their respective roles even though they have to contend with uneven writing. The subject matter feels topical but any sort of deeper ruminations are left out in favour of complicated long shots of action scenes. Good soundtrack too.

    "Who the fuck invades Bushwick?"
