I was excited to watch a different Kevin Smith movie. I enjoyed all of his movies and I thought there will never be one made by him that I wouldn’t like. That was until I saw Red State. Obviously, it didn’t make me laugh but it didn’t move me at all.
Red State was a mess. It felt like watching three separate movies. The first part was a religious thriller. Then it made its way into an action movie and concluded with a political drama. Kevin Smith turned a good premise into a shitload of crap.
Joseph Keenan (John Goodman): Simple just shit itself.
Maybe I just expected too much from Kevin Smith. Red State just didn’t have that wow factor to make me want to watch it over and over again. Hopefully, Red State is his last attempt at the horror genre and should just go back doing comedies.
