_Bushwick’s_ reach exceeds its grasp, but considering that over-ambition is just one of the myriad of things working against it, it’s amazing that _Bushwick_ is even as good as it is.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Fantastic watch, will watch again, and do recommend.
This one really flew under the radar, and I almost skipped it until I saw Brittany Snow, and had I know Dave Batista was also involved, I would have sought this out.
Let me get this out of the way: the premise is a succession of the southern united states from the Union with an initial strike against a civil target. This is what “The South will rise again” means, this is what everyone flying the Confederate Battle Flag is signifying when they display the symbol of a terrorist organization.
That said, this is an amazingly shot depiction of a horrible attack on civilians. The follow camera style gives you all the feeling of “found footage” (unfortunately there is a little shaking cam in action), without all the overhead and mislead about where the camera is, someone has to hold it, and “who edited this together”. It is really immersive, and the audience learns about the situation (quickly, I might add) right alongside the characters.
The story hardly wastes any time throwing us into chaos and survival. The best part is that Brittany Snow is just a college girl, smart and capable, but not combat ready and not that great of a survivalist. We get Dave Batista playing the stereotypical “Rock Role” of being former military, but instead of being a witty, smoldering pretty boy, they layered on substance to his character, and let him be gun ready.
There are good twists, not a lot of complex multi-threading (at least for a city at war), all good action, and a ton of immersive realism.
The biggest problems with this movie are the most realistic ones: in the times of a domestic war, there are going to be 4 sides: invaders, defenders, abstainers, and criminals: people that are just going to take the opportunity to do whatever and hurt whomever they want before someone kills them.
Honestly, the more I think about it, the better this movie seems. I’d probably expand the ending though, in the very least there should have been an epilogue. At it stands, the movie just sort of ends, but it is possibly by design.
A Horrible, politically motivated liberal sickness induced view of America.
A liberal’s wet dream of reverse provocation. Conservative states having won a Presidential election have now chosen to wage war on New York. I speculate that the premise here is based loosely on the election results of 2016, where the vote was polarized between New York, California and all the states in between. In the movie anyway -and you need to be smoking some really strong stuff or be a die- hard anarchist- Texas leads a revolution whereby Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, -and implied “heartland” states revolt against a Federal Government controlled by “New York” and implied California. The “Union” is now controlled by New York (implied) and all the rest of the “conservative” states are to be feared in this because they have chosen to invade New York to overthrow its power. Has the constitution failed? This is never explained. Yet, somehow, Middle America, led by Texas is out to take over New York. Somehow the world has become some draconian order to invade and murder civilians in New York with impunity and vile disrespect for human life. Im thinking now of the phrase “a thief thinks everyone steals”… The author somehow fears the Reality of America where a majority of states overrule a minority of two. There is no movie or story here. Just two people on a journey through endless mayhem, open anarchy and mindless violence in the street. Meanwhile we hear reports that “the states” have declared war on New York. Its complete political garbage.
Escape from New York without Snake Plissken
“I mean it’s more tactical. This isn’t an attack. This is an invasion.”
There’s one thing this film surprised me with. And that’s the speed at which the violence begins. One moment Lucy (Brittany Snow) walks with her boyfriend through a subway station. The next moment, he’s lying dead next to her and in the background you can hear the sound of automatic guns and screaming people in panic. Turns out a war started in this part of New York. A kind of American Civil War in guerrilla style. The sound effects and the way in which the camera follows fleeing Lucy looks a lot like a third person shooter. Even Lucy’s sister Belinda (Angelic Zambrana) thought the neighbors were playing “Call of Duty” all the time.
It’s only when Lucy is rescued by Stupe (Dave Bautista), a concierge with a military background, this realistic looking film turns into a survival journey through a suburban district of New York. Immediately I had to think of movies like “No Escape”. But also of older hit-movies such as “Escape from New York” and the magnificent film “Warriors”. A turbulent flight through neighborhoods where street gangs suddenly take up arms against the forces who try to take over Bushwick and punks who take advantage of the lawlessness to rob neighborhood stores. And all this looks as if it’s filmed in one take.
The reason why those troops are penetrating this neighborhood and total anarchy breaks out, sounds quite ridiculous and unlikely the first instance. But thinking further about it afterwards, you could say it isn’t. Such a situation could occur somewhere in the world, given the interracial and domestic conflicts that arise everywhere. But apart from this original approach, this film has little to offer. The rest of it is just about the two main characters trying to escape the violence in a city that looks like a battlefield. Even the noisy and rebellious looking local residents who are waving with their illegal weapons excitedly, don’t make it more interesting. Although some of them were in a high stage of enthusiasm.
In addition to the fact that it’s all simplistic and there aren’t really surprising developments, there were also some things that were quite annoying. For example, the continuous mumbling of Dave Bautista almost the entire movie. Besides the emotional closing argument, his oral contribution was limited. He resembled Rambo who also mumbled the whole movie in those days. And although he seems to have a lot of military experience, he continuously refused to use more sophisticated firearms. I’ve lost count of the number of times I got p*ssed because they ignored modern automatic guns, which were lying around for the taking. They stubbornly held on to their small handguns. I would have known better.
I’m not sure if it was the intention to make a political statement. If so, they didn’t quite succeed in doing that. Before you know it they shifted back to making a superficial action film with Jews jumping around with Uzi’s. In general, the acting isn’t so bad. Brittany Snow is doing her best as an emerging survival expert. Dave Bautista’s posture is very suitable for playing the character Stupe. His physique and rough-hewn behavior makes an extremely dangerous neanderthal of him (mumbling included). And if you’re looking for a movie with a denouement so non-compliant compared to the rest, don’t look any further. Believe me. So, “Bushwick” isn’t special, but you don’t need survival skills to watch it entirely.
