Saw the trailers for this. Think Red Dawn - only backwards and upside down. IOW - save your money, this one is a stinker. Even the lib reviewers said it was a stinker. Why? Roger Ebert had this to say "August 25, 2017 This movie will lose the goodwill of any longtime New Yorker watching it within the first ten minutes. Under the opening credits, there are a series of relatively pleasant helicopter views of Brooklyn, starting from the shores of Coney Island. But these grow more sinister as we note the presence of a machine-gun barrel in the bottom of the frame. Yikes. Then: cut to an underground subway station. Church Avenue, service by the G and F lines, as the visible signage shows. Lucy, played by Brittany Snow, is wending her way to the exit, with her milquetoast boyfriend, played by Some Dude™. (Some Dude - nice snark) They’re mildly concerned because there doesn’t seem to be anyone around but otherwise are feeling jokey about milquetoast boyfriend’s impending introduction to Lucy’s grandmother. Their reverie is interrupted by a screaming man, his body entirely on fire, running down from the subway’s street level stairs." It rapidly goes downhill from this point - the beginning of the movie. The rest of the review (with spoilers) is here - Bushwick Movie Review & Film Summary (2017) | Roger Ebert Another reviewer Bushwick review: the debate over punching Nazis takes on extra weight in this timely American apocalyptic thriller When Texas invades Brooklyn, themes of race, violence, and defense against fascism emerge in a North-vs.-South war What’s it about? Civil-engineering graduate student Lucy goes home to visit her grandmother in Bushwick, and finds the Brooklyn neighborhood overrun by masked soldiers systematically killing everyone in sight. After a close encounter with a pair of looters, she teams up with Stupe, a gruff janitor whose battlefield medical skills, collection of firearms, and references to military tactics clearly indicate that he’s much more dangerous than he appears. As the pair look for Lucy’s family, they discover that the soldiers are actually an impromptu army sent by a coalition of Southern states, attempting to seize Bushwick as part of a Texas secessionist movement. If Stupe and Lucy can cross five blocks, there might be a way out — but that’s harder than it sounds. Okay, what’s it really about? In a post-film Q&A session at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Milott and Murnion said they were inspired by an offhand comment about secession from former Texas governor Rick Perry. Bushwick imagines a literal culture war, but it seems more specifically interested in inverting the right-wing fantasy of guerrilla resistance. Instead of Americans banding together to rise up against a foreign invader, Bushwick residents must unite to defeat an enemy who thinks principles like racial tolerance make their city weak. And instead of seeing warfare as purposeful and cleansing, Stupe — a disillusioned veteran built like a mountain — feels as though he’s being drawn back into something inherently repellant. Plays to the far-left view that Southerners are all - (fill in the blank) How crap like this ever gets funded is a mystry to me - but given the recent discussion here of CWIII - thought it might be of some small interest.
