Editorial Reviews

In American Bully, it starts out as just a typical day in the lives of seven high school students in a town that looks like Anywhere, U.S.A. But when one middle-American teenager – deeply affected by 9/11, terrorism and the war in Iraq – and his friends become involved in an isolated high school altercation, it escalates into a hate crime that shocks the entire nation and sends a small town reeling.

With intense performances from a cast of emerging young stars, American Bully is a haunting and relevant film forcing us to confront the harrowing and potent menace that lurks just under the surface of any town in America.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Customer Reviews

This really should be shown in every high school.
Jennifer Pirkle
This movie over simplified a complex problem without exposing the root causes that nurture and allow the hatred to grow.
Victoria J. Dennison
I saw the trailer and the first 30 mins, then skimmed and said forget it..

I'm half Asian and when I was young I was picked on by kids who were raised by parents from post Vietnam and had grand parents who were post WW2. Every comic book, TV show and book showed Asians as always being evil. The people that picked on me sounded just like the kids in this film. There were the crazy kids and the fools that just stood there and did nothing. I was so scared I brought a knife with me at all times for fear of something like this happening to me and I'm talking about the 70s and 80s. This film was great. It scared the hell out of me because if felt so real.

Riveting film about a high school senior about to go into the military, who has strong hatred for terrorists. He and his friends hold another student from India captive, beside the fact that neither the student nor his race had anything to do with 9/11.

This is a film about a group of American teens with a sick, twisted view of defending our country. The maniacal leader, Brandon, holds ALL Arabs responsible for 9/11 and justifies ANY action perpetrated against ANY of them to be justified on that basis.

Profoundly, Brandon's attitude mirrors that of ISIS and other terrorist groups, which slaughter our innocent citizens because of our military's involvement in the wars in the M.E. We should all be as appalled at the crimes perpetrated by these lunatic teenagers as we are of those committed by ISIS and other terrorist groups.

This film is fiction (at least I'm not aware of any ties to actual events), but tragically I am sure that actions of this nature occur here to some degree. This film demands that we examine ourselves and do everything possible to ensure that we do not become our own worst enemy by becoming a reflection of our enemies. I just hope it's not too late.

I have to credit Matt O'Leary in his portrayal of Brandon--great acting.

Still, I felt I left this movie without a sense of justice having been served. I really didn't care for the ending.

"American Bully" contains a decent attempt to illustrate bigotry and intolerance in post-911 America. The chronically profane dialogue carries a lot of weight in characterizing the wild--but still, Brandon excepted, fairly typical--adolescent protagonists despite the fact that the boys' voices all sound alike (and is it just my imagination, or is the lip-syncing off?). The Typical Smaller Town, USA, setting is, perhaps intentionally, confining, and, while low budget films often have a certain appeal, this one's limitations work against it pretty glaringly. I had much higher hopes for "American Bully": More development of the storyline and characters' motivations, particularly those of arch-bully Brandon O'Leary, could do miracles here. All the same, it certainly kept my attention and honestly surprised me in a couple of spots. If you don't expect too wide a scope and appreciate tense, disturbing films centered on teenagers getting themselves and others into troublesome, ultimately tragic situations, "American Bully" is for you.

A true display of the heightened level of xenophobia some Americans experienced post September 11th. It begs that question of what might have been witnessed or overheard in the homes of countless numbers of young, seemingly disenfranchised White American males following the horrific attacks of that day. While I found some aspects of this film difficult, I also believe it important that we continue having open discussions related to our biases and prejudices so that as Americans we learn to move from a place of tolerance to acceptance of all...

This really should be shown in every high school. This is how many teens feel these days and shows just how quick things can get out of hand. Really opened my eyes and I talked to my daughter about this in depth. Even she saw how many times it could have been prevented, stopped. Shocking.

I was really satisfied with the film and the seller's timely fashion in shipping the item to me. The movie was a drama-thriller, I'd say. Focuses on the different opinions of people based on the effects of the events of 9/11. Truly a mortifying film on how far one's hate will take them to harm others. Great performances from actors, Marshall Allman (Prison Break), Matt O'Leary (Domestic Disturbance) and Ross Britz (Maskerade).
