Believable story line. NOT anti-veteran (by charmed_p3-705-447018)
I really enjoyed this movie! I don't see why it has such bad reviews! I think the plot is really great because it's believable! First off, the whole 'rape' scene happens all the time. A woman leads a man on thinking she wants what he wants and changes her mind about it before it goes too far. Man doesn't take no for an answer. Secondly, just because the men are vets doesn't mean the writers of this movie are anti-veterans. There are A LOT of veterans that have PTSD and other terrible things that are wrong with them after serving. Especially these men who have served 2 <more>
tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Personally, I believe two of the men may have underlying problems before their traumatic experiences. The guy who tried to rape Abbey and the other white guy. Sorry I can't remember any of the mens names Either way, I read a lot of reviews talking about how it's anti-vet and I just don't see it that way. I think the story is believable and there were boobs. Nice boobs. #worth
Whatever you do, don't squeal like a girl (by StevePulaski)
Kate Aselton's Black Rock concerns three girls who venture out into what they believe is a deserted, peaceful island encompassed by woods and unrefined nature until they run into three war veterans who are spending their time out in the countryside hunting and living off the land. The girls invite them to their camp for longnecks and food, when one tries to rape and attack one of the girls. This leads to turmoil and tension between the three girls and vets, who are now playing a cat and mouse game with each other in an unfamiliar turf.The girls are Abby played by director Kate Aselton , <more>
Lou Lake Bell , and Sarah Kate Bosworth . Lou and Abby haven't spoken in months after a cheating incident left them what appeared to be irreparably broken and hurt. Sarah tries to be the glue that holds the three girls closer, claiming that they could die from unexpected circumstances tomorrow and they wouldn't have the luxury of "living," if that makes sense. As always, the planned outing turns deadly in a series of unforeseen events that will scar each of them for life.If you go by the premise itself, it's undoubtedly so that Black Rock seems to accentuate and thrive off of every viable cliché in the suspense/thriller booklet. However, the film maintains careful plotting and a focused mindset, making its female characters more than the kind to cry and scream. One of the smartest things it does is avoid misogyny and dreary cynicism. It doesn't capitalize off of the known-effect its scene of brutality and assault will inevitably have on a viewer. It doesn't bask in the nihilistic light that films like I Spit on Your Grave have. It seems to function with the style and format that Wes Craven's classic Last House on the Left had. There was a film that took the most mean-spirited, vile plot and turned it into something of a subversive art, if you will, leaving misogyny at the door, while still amplifying the sickness of the situation.Black Rock, though, is even more careful than that film. It doesn't conduct itself as a parable on revenge and brutality, or make an attempt to soften the violence that is featured in the film. Aselton is smart about what she shows and what she makes the film touch on more. The on-location shooting in Maine, showing the untouched wilderness and woodsy environment is terrific, the crackling of twigs and leaves brilliantly makes use of the naturalism this story begs for, and the wide-variety of camera angles and shot-setups make this as interesting as can possibly be aesthetically. The film surprisingly doesn't even feel like a film that tries to push the idea that women can be as tough as men or possess the unsung ability to fight back. This is a tale of survival and gender roles and commonalities seem to have no business being talked about here.The film was written or perhaps outlined by Mark Duplass Aselton's husband , who I've stated several times is one of my favorite men in the business. Duplass, usually working alongside his brother Jay, has created some of the strongest independent films of recent years and written some of the most unique and intimate films I've ever seen. Many of these films go under the name of a cinematic movement called "mumblecore," which is predicated off of amateurish performances, low-quality cameras, home-movie-esque aesthetics, and improvised scripts. Duplass's minimalist writing and story put with Aselton's reserved but competent direction makes the film that much more grand in terms of content.Black Rock will be slammed by those who deem its survivalist story and "less-is-more" filmmaking as an amateur setback and a noneventful occurrence. It will be praised by those who adore small-scale storytelling and extremely independent filmmaking. You may think it's stupid and boring. I think it's one of the best films of the year.Starring: Kate Aselton, Lake Bell, and Kate Bosworth. Directed by: Kate Aselton
Well Crafted, Modern Thriller Film Which Keeps You Guessing (by schizophonicguy)
I have never written a review on IMDb but the fact that the review on this film' Black Rock' which is seen when you scroll to the bottom of the page if so inaccurate and rather pompous I felt the need to write a review from the perspective of a normal every day guy who loves horror/thriller films.I have been waiting for this film for quite some time and after finally getting the opportunity to watch it, was not disappointed but more so surprised.The acting is actually quite well performed, the script is near solid but there could've been a few tweaks and the part that surprised me <more>
was usually within the first 10 minutes of these type of films you can clearly pick 'the survivor' but in this. . . not so much.Look if you're looking for a good film to watch of a Friday night then I highly recommend it. If you're looking to judge a movie for everything it does wrong rather than right - don't watch it.The movie overall I would say is approximately a 8/10, atmospheric, heartfelt in certain points and definitely puts you on the edge of your seat - I hope this review helps and you enjoy the movie as much as I did.
A pleasant surprise, and a very good film. (by Michael-Hallows-Eve)
This movie was a pleasant surprise. I was thinking when I got this that it may be average at best, but it was totally the opposite. A very well crafted story and the acting was pretty good too. The plot was better than expected also. The movie started off nicely, three women who were good friends in the past get back together for the first time since they were kids to spend time on an island called Black Rock. They meet some local hunters and find out they know one of them from when they were children. After inviting them to join them in a few drinks on the beach, the atmosphere changes into <more>
one of panic and horror as the situation and friendships are turned on their head in a brutal confrontation. The in- your-face plot and some of the scenes had me gripped and actually caring about the main characters. Things just go from one horrible situation to another and it leaves you no time to adjust to it. As I said, I was pleasantly surprised by this film, it wasn't anything I was expecting. I give it a solid 8 out of 10. Recommend it.
Does anyone here even like good films? (by renee-williams-893-592930)
I literally just created an account so I could review this film. I am floored by the very notion that it received, as of right now, a 4.7 on this site. Are you serious? 'Oz the Great and Powerful' got 6.5 for pete's sakes. Have you seen that tripe? Unbelievable.These women aren't special, that's the point. They aren't strong, they have no means to fight back, they're believably terrified of the situation. If you're waiting for them to retaliate against their attackers with a slew of clever traps, you may prefer such torture porn as I Spit on Your Grave. This is <more>
a thriller. No one promised you guts. In fact, I was a little confused by the nudity. I didn't think this would be one of those movies.So yes, the notion of several beautiful women on a camping trip from hell has been done. The revenge flick has been done, the "female empowerment" horror movement is one we all know. But I felt Black Rock was different, it had heart. It reminded me a bit of The Descent, in that it built characters I truly liked, they had dimension, I cared what happened to them. They fought back because they had to, and it was hard, and they didn't magically gain superpowers to do it. It built suspense, and threw a few thriller clichés out the window with the way things turned out. And maybe a little bit of female empowerment never hurt anybody.
