    No mystery or suspense. The first half of the movie is a nicely directed character study. The second half, an uncompelling mediocre series of uncreative violence scenes. Leaves you wanting your 90 minutes back.

    The movie doesn't work. 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. Expand

    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.
