Started to watch free on Netflix.
Plot and subplots ridiculous, lost interest about 1/4 way thru and shut it off before ending.

Small aside; quads like that are not street legal per NYSDMV or NYC Admin Code.

So the invading Texans must have submitted their E-Permit application to NYPD 9 months in advance and gotten approval ahead of the invasion? :crazy:

I watched it this evening. I found it interesting but a couple of things bothered me. I would’ve liked to have seen more dialogue for Dave Bautista. I thought he crackled in Guardians of the Galaxy and while I wasn’t looking for the same type of malapropism I would’ve liked it if he said more. I did like the sad scene in the laundromat.

I thought the doped up sister sobered up to soon, and Stupe still should’ve argued for her to stay behind because she was a liability while stoned.

Also he should’ve introduced himself as the building super, not the janitor. In New York they generally don’t say janitor if he tends to a whole building.

I thought the villains were an interesting inversion of the usual trope.

As I understood the plot point the assaults on the northern cities or more to cause general mistress and put pressure on the president and Congress to ratify the succession of the rebellious states, not to permanently occupy or ethnically cleanse.

I love the scene with the Hasidim.

While I was not happy to see the main characters all day off, this late in the building thread I’m not giving anything away, it was pretty realistic in an otherwise unrealistic movie.

I recall a friend in college who wanted to shoot a movie where the lead gets shot in the first 15 minutes, dies and then you just have another hour and 20 minutes of black screen running to illustrate the permanence of death.

Just re watched this morning. In the context of events and political news now two years later. The story is a lot more believable

"When a Texas military force invades their Brooklyn neighborhood, 20-year-old Lucy and war veteran Stupe must depend on each other to survive."
Sounds like a deeply flawed plot line. Who in Texas (or anywhere) is going to invade Brooklyn? Think a far more compelling and plausible plot would involve desperate, hungry Golden Horde types flooding out of post-SHTF urban centers and fanning out into the countryside.

Which part? The part where the South builds a huge militia army and decides to kick things off with a secret invasion of NYC that no one knows about resourced with helicopters, tons of troops and automatic weapons or the part about where they then lose to a poorly armed, unequipped, untrained, unorganized pick up team of stoners and janitors?

Yes :oh:








The part about more rural states beginning a civil war against more urban liberal states by sudden extreme civil unrest :shock: BTW they didn't lose. They just didn't win. Last scene the camera pans across NYC in flames as Americans against Americans fight and die....again
