    • Excerpt: Bushwick sets New York City ablaze but never tells us why, leaving viewers with nothing but street violence and an empty hopelessness.

    • Excerpt: Bushwick strives to capitalize on the adrenaline rush aesthetic of a videogame, masking its numerous cuts with distracting close-ups and pans to transport us from one sequence to the next as though we’ve never left. It’s an admirable attempt, but one that doesn’t wholly work as far as adding anything to what’s already a pretty pulse-pounding scenario.

    • Excerpt: Who needs heroes when you have pseudo-intellectual hipster bullshit?
  • Nuno Reis @ SciFiWorld Portugal
    • Excerpt: Pode ser muito bonito dar as mãos e enfrentar fantasmas gigantes ou ameaças extraterrestres, mas se aparecer um batalhão de homens treinados e armados, quantos se vão expor para defender a sua pátria, a sua cidade e o seu bairro? Esta é a visão nua e crua do que sucederia e não é bonito de se ver.

    • Excerpt: The heavily armed force that storms into a Brooklyn neighborhood expecting minimal opposition finds the opposite. As Brooklyn becomes Beirut (or Sarajevo or Basra), the film deploys an impressive combination of practical and digital effects to transform a familiar American landscape into a war zone.
