Review: Amreeka

15 Jul 10

A movie looking for a story line

School holidays often make for restricted movie choices and we went to "Amreeka" (despite the Flicks review) because it rated 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. Well done Flicks -- we should have paid attention! This was a movie with potential but no idea how to achieve it. For the first hour or so we all wanted to punch the main character in the face! A series of largely unconnected vignettes with no real story. Don't go!
