Storyline

BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas is trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin - in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.

Quick urban action w/o much depth
7 September 2017 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

One of those movies, with improbable and simple idea behind, that make me wonder about affluence of my spare time and states of mind in which to watch them. In the beginning there are many not logical and unanswered questions (e.g. at start how that large scale attack happened during a single train ride incl. changing lines? Or, why everybody's shooting everybody?) Sirenes, choppers, smoke, blood, fire, bang-bangs, so forth... Not a clue to make just enough of introductory sense for the first third of the movie, along just mentioned street fight and running (generally: black uniformed guys shooting everybody incl. civilians). In word: hellish urban warfare.

Then, after half an hour, the script is getting somewhere where I also got this strange feeling of black humor, esp. when hood-gangs and high sis appear. As for the acting, it's not that bad as one would expect, though at first half there was not much to act about. Quite fast action not lacking violence, all the time. The movie budget is showing, not in cast as much as in effects, stunts, camera and stuff being destroyed. Note the decent directing.

Finally, after that hour of 'cracky' urban street/basement/roof pandemonium, there's a sort of tightening of the story-line. I somewhat enjoyed the movie, together with number of wicked moments (e.g. protagonist duo is getting actually acquainted with each other on the very end).

I always liked the urban NY "all together" feeling, so: fire up, switch-on to get simple fast tempo far-out! You'll be pleasantly surprised few times; that is if you don't expect serious and deep stuff.
