    Rumley has assembled a fine cast; there's not a false step in the film, and while obviously this isn't a film for everyone, these are characters that we come to know, respect, and fall hard for, doomed or not.

    This horror-slasher-thriller-tragi-romance is certainly going to leave some squeamish, but there's no denying that this is high-quality filmmaking.

    Red White & Blue proves the director a bona fide storyteller with more tools in his arsenal than shock and awe.

    The pacing and performances are more organic than in most horror.

Mainly because the writer and/or director doesn't understand people. The characters are all over the place and don't even come close to existing in real life. A rocker who is a loving son and has a great mother but who becomes a total nut? Umm no. No one like this exists in real life. They spend a big chunk of the movie showing the rockers life and his relationship with his mom. Why? So we can have a deeper understanding of who he is and why he did what he did. First a person like that would do what he did and second of all WE DONT NEED TO KNOW. Who gives a **** Get on with the story. Then we have the Nympho who has a total understanding of herself and why she does what she does. Umm no. People who act out don't understand themselves - that's what they act out. Poor character development and bad pacing make the movie hard to watch. Full Review »
