Think of this movie as Mean Girls meets The Purge. Sounds strange, but it's completely worth it. Highly original and eerily perfect for the moment.
Gripping and REAL (by Biancs06)
I'll admit, I came to this movie to see Bill Skarsgård because I'm obsessed with him. But I quickly got sucked into this movie in the best way. All the acting is incredible, particularly Hari and Odessa. I really enjoyed anytime they were on the screen. The soundtrack is great too. Go into this movie with an open mind. Don't feel like you're gettung attacked if you're a male or someone who's more conservative. This movie isn't to bash or shame certain people. It's to show an exaggerated version of what our world is today. Very eye opening and scary at times <more>
but so much fun to watch, I saw it twice! I recommend it, 10/10.
Like Heathers - with kickass action and gore (by jinshamoore)
Funny, fantastic directing and acting. A good triple feature would be with Jennifer's Body.
What are you doing on IMDB? (by matdog321)
Assassination Nation is a "modern" take on the Salem witch trials, which, coincidentally takes place in Salem. Once a hacker starts exposing deep secrets from the townspeople ranging from the mayor to the principal to the students, all hell breaks loose. And when main protagonist Lily along with her 3 girlfriends are blamed, they find themselves fighting for their lives. I loved every minute of this film, the cinematography was not only stylish but necessary, avoiding borderline pretentious arthouse that leaves you feeling robbed. If you are going in for the violence, you won't <more>
get much of til half way into the film, but when it does come, it is a very satisfying and adrenaline filled rush. That's not to say I didn't feel exhausted from this film by the time we reached the last 5 minutes, but only because this story took quite a bit to spiral out of control that by the time sh*t hits the fan, you are left feeling quite full with what you are fed in the final act. I say this because if you are expecting those 4 girls to absolutely obliterate a whole mob of angry people, you will be disappointed to hear that the film ends before we see that carnage, but what you do see is fulfilling enough to forgive that cliche copout, which is why I take one star away from an otherwise perfect film. If you are the type of person that thinks 4 girls talking about male genitals and whose nude pictures they have on their phones, you might be a bit annoyed with our leads. But as for me, I loved every second they were on screen. Not to mention the polarizing use of modern trap music and the booming bass constantly playing in-between scenes and in the background that compliments the 4 girls aesthetics, whether they are simply walking down the school halls or doing something mischievous that will ultimately have consequences by the time things start going south. I ask you why you are on iMDB because, it's not that this movie is some "snowflake" SJW horror film trying to bombard you with the words "trigger warning" but that it is very political and seeing how the Purge movies are received, I highly doubt this movie won't take a beating from a few bothered people. Enjoy this movie for the hilarious and disturbing outcome of what happens when a paranoid town resorts to gory violence. You may walk away feeling pleasantly surprised
It gets from 0 to 100000000 in a second. This film was well written and directed. Aggressively edited. The main continuous shot it's EVERYTHING. and the script it's fun. It's about feminism. Labels and rebellion. Very very enjoyable.
Astute, Apropos and On Target (by chris60)
Art reflects society. When society grows divided and divisive, art will reflect it, and such is the case with Sam Levinson's ASSASSINATION NATION. As with Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE in 1972, now ranking in the top 100 films on most critics' lists, it's decidedly not a movie for everyone. ASSASSINATION NATION goes places uncomfortable and apropos, and does so in spectacular, over-the-top fashion.PEW Research cited a staggering 94% of all American teens wielding social media as of 2015. We tell these teens that all nudity is inherently sexual and that their strongest natural <more>
urge is to be shunned, all while blatantly using it to sell practically every product on the planet. Some of their private divulgences, then, naturally contain nudity. As a legal repercussion, we've arrested and charged girls as young as thirteen with Felony Pornography Production for unwisely sending their boyfriends topless pictures - pictures these indiscrete boys shared with their entire schools and beyond. For added trauma, as hacking of social media grows more sophisticated, so, too, grows the broadcast of stolen photos and missives.We inexplicably shame women who've been wronged - women whose privacy has been violated, women who have been raped - and excuse males, saying, "Boys will be boys." We give boys a free pass and a pat on the back, be they aspiring athletes or nominees to the Supreme Court. But oh! My mistake - Brock Turner actually served three months of a six-month sentence for raping an unconscious woman and leaving her behind a dumpster. No free pass there, though some bemoaned how "sex offender" status would hurt Turner's promising career.Take a country where women have traditionally been treated as Second Class, achieving the right to vote only after a nearly 100-year unmet demand and not assuming control of their own bodies until fully a half-century after that - where marital rape wasn't declared illegal across all states until 1993, where equal advancement, and equal pay, for equal work is still out of reach for many, and you have a recipe for angst.Next, introduce a manipulative political party unashamedly gerrymandered a 33-seat gain in Congress while losing by 1.4 million votes in 2010 that pairs bible-banging righteousness with cascading hypocrisy to roll back hard fought rights women gained and ensure others are never achieved. Then, ice it with a philandering leader who has publicly called women "pig," "dog," "cow," "slob," and "disgusting animal," a man who elicits and validates the very worst tendencies... and you have the recipe for an explosion.ASSASSINATION NATION takes a bloody hard look at where we are, lensing women's societal issues through a contemporized frame of the Salem witch trials. Some couldn't see past the violence committed by Alex and his droogs and condemned A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, and so will some be repelled by the violence and avoid ASSASSINATION NATION. In both cases, though, looking closer and paying attention rewarded this viewer. Your mileage may vary.
The first Sundance Hit of 2018 (by shahriarrahmanshajib)
First off, I am stoked to be the second person on IMDB reviewing a film that is sure to blow up! Judging by the date, I probably saw this film at the same Sundance screening as the previous reviewer. With its $10 million sale at Sundance three days ago, this movie is sure to get a theatrical release this year, and deservedly so. It may even win the Dramatic jury prize at Sundance in a few days. My mind is dizzy right now with thoughts I want to express about this film - so I will only stick to the essentials. Let me start with this: this "little" film cheekily dubbed as a <more>
"true story" about the breakdown of the small town of Salem, Massachusetts, will stir up national debates about internet transparency, morality in the digital age, toxic male egos, gun culture, and teenage online delinquency. And that is just scratching the surface.This is a film that can be assaulting on the senses with plenty of teenage sex, gun violence, and excessive blood. This shit is not for everyone, especially viewers over 45. Really, I am a bit overwhelmed. I will say that the story hits a home run. In our heroine, Lily, we find a character arch that begins with strength, then vulnerability, fear, despair, and then finally renewed strength. It is classically Aristotelian in that way. The technical execution is something to behold, with one breathless technocrane/steadicam step-off shot - showing with heart-pounding grace how thugs ambush Lily and her friends in a house. The price of admission is worth this scene alone.My biggest critique of the film is that the last one-third of the film differs in form or genre than the rest. Though I am sure this was a deliberate choice which helps the film be entertaining to its targeted youthful viewership, I also feel that this tactic may keep the film from making any lists of great cinematic achievement. The first two-thirds of the film is a gripping tapestry which includes music-video aesthetics, split-screens, driving dance beats and youthful energy - rife with empathetic sensibility. The second half is completely devoid of any empathy in a balls-to-the wall grindhouse or revenge story featuring babes with shiny red jackets enshrouded by guns and seemingly impervious to bullets. Also, enough blood and killings to make you think you are seeing grindhouse B-film from the 70's. What this film does startlingly well is that the audience is willing to let itself be immersed by the lack of empathy and incredulous violence in the last act because by this point the director has earned its trust with the gripping story and the sympathatic plight of the main characters. That Sam Levinson the writer/driector made us make this jump with him is a stroke of --I will say the word-- genius.
Now before you start reading all the negative reviews about this movie and start thinking that the just another teen movie with stupid consequences and slutty remarks and different kind of videos and music that you don't understand you have to realize that if you take a hard look at anyone that you actually think you know this is a possibility in life Not saying that the world's gonna go into complete anarchy and chaos but haven't we already ascended to a point close to that. It was directed well the acting was really good it was an advocate for humanity writes I would say it was <more>
an advocate for telling the truth it was an advocate for chaos and anyone who has any badd reviews about this really really needs to look at their browser history. This shows you the basic elements of humanity where the masses can be swayed easily while the few have to fight just to survive good movie I'd recommend anyone I know it's the purge meets Facebook enjoy
This is a fantastic commentary on social media and the cloud...the thin line we tread between privacy and being completely exposed. It delivers on all fronts and definitely lives up to the marketing campaign pushing how "graphic" it is. Perhaps some parts were a little obnoxious and overly self-aware but wow was it a fun experience. See this in a good theater with proper speakers and you won't be disappointed.
