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

I cannot believe they allowed this even to be shown.
Cheryl Heinz
There are murders being committed across the county involving hate crimes whether they be racist, religious differences or focused on the transgender.
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.

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.

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.

"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.

I am sick to my stomach after watching this movie. Sadly, this is the reality of what's happening every day around the world. People have become so hateful and violent. They have lost their way, and have become hardened to everyone and everything happening around them. WE ALL NEED TO FIND OUR WAY BACK TO GOD, WHO WILL RETURN LOVE, KINDNESS, PEACE, UNDERSTANDING, AND ALL GOODNESS AND BEAUTY TO EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING!! I PRAY THAT OUR LORD, JESUS CHRIST AND FATHER GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOULS, AND HELP EACH OF US TO START LIVING EVERYDAY TO THE FULLEST, AND CHERISHING ALL WE HAVE AND ALL WE ARE. I GIVE THANKS AND GLORY TO JESUS AND GOD ETERNALLY 😇😇😇😇😇😇😇

I gave the movie two stars because the title implied it was about a bully. The movie is actually about a mentally unstable racist who commits a violent murder with a less dominant counterpart. Although the acting was good it was over the top with American Patriotism and the effect the news can have on the younger generation. For kids to carry that type of racism it usually is taught by the very family and community they live in not the television set. There are murders being committed across the county involving hate crimes whether they be racist, religious differences or focused on the transgender. It is truly a problem.

This movie over simplified a complex problem without exposing the root causes that nurture and allow the hatred to grow. By doing so it glosses over the problem instead of treating it with the seriousness it deserves.
