Powerful, riveting, & heartbreaking
Verified purchase
I have to admit that my heart, my soul wasn't prepared for the subject matter of this movie. I am now a grown man, have lived a full life (for my age), and pray I still have many years ahead of me that will allow me to accomplish many of the dreams that I have yet to attain. I say these words because I feel safe behind the cloak of anonymity, but the truth is, this movie hit very close to home as I myself am a survivor of sexual assault from repeated abuse I endured growing up. With that said, even though I wasn't emotionally prepared to be a witness to my life story playing out on screen, I can say that the superb acting in this film made my heart and my soul heal (feel more closure) if even just a little bit more.

This definitely isn't a film for kids or younger teenagers. But I can tell you it is worth a watch and can possibly quiet some of your own demons. Superb job by all the actors.

Expect the Unexpected
Verified purchase
This movie was very violent and heartbreaking. The characters personalities we’re all different and their friendship was strange but strong. Video games they played messed up their thinking but it has a twist to it not suitable for minors

Incredible
Verified purchase
A deeply moving movie that holds your attention the entire time. I often play on my phone when I watch things (I know. I'm one of those people haha), but I couldn't look away during this entire movie. I found myself wanting more of these characters. In a positive way. In a way where the characters were so well written, and the actors all did such a good job, I'd be entertained for hours. There's so much story here. I'm so impressed with what happened over the course of just an hour and a half! Amazing.

INTENSE
Verified purchase
This is the most intense movie ever filmed. It brilliantly travels through a journey with 3 teens who all have witnessed horrifying traumas living in one neighborhood on the west coast. If you are going to watch this, have a tissue nearby and be prepared to process what you watch because you cannot walk away from this film without pondering how deeply trauma impacts us as wonderful human beings. I usually do not like these types of films. In fact I usually only watch foreign films but I can easily say this is the greatest and most important film of all time.

The 4 things you need to know about this video:
Verified purchase
1. It was made in 2021, but not by Amazon, so it's not TOTALLY incoherent.
2. Amber Heard is an uncredited lead. (Wonder why?)
3. The N-word, that white people can't say, is used 200+ times.
4. The rape and murder of a random white *privileged* couple in their home is a minor episode.

All this leads to the movie's conclusion: if your childhood was f'd up, it's perfectly acceptable if you f* up everyone you meet.

Meh
Verified purchase
Kind of a lame movie with silly violence and kind of poor story-telling. It tries to be smart by showing traumatic events in these kids' past to justify their motivations but falls flat because the things they do are so detestable. Terrence Howard's ramblings in between acts make it seem kind of like a play, but his ramblings are trying to further justify these people being awful. If the overall intent of the movie was to showcase mental instability brought on by trauma it might have been a good story.

Surprising story of 3 dynsfunctional kids in LA
Verified purchase
The start of this movie is a bunch of very dysfunctional kids wilding out. It reminded me of the ultra-violence seen in A Clockwork Orange. Thankfully there’s a method to the madness as the story starts to unravel why they are such damaged people. A lot of it has to deal with the Cycle of Poverty. I was surprised by the movie because I had no idea where it was going at first. The three young actors who play the main characters all do a very good job with supporting roles by Jonathan Majors and Terrance Howard.
