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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "American Bully" : Pluses and Minuses July 23, 2012
Format:DVD
"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.

Pointless movie, This was just a good excuse to work in a 9/11 plot element.. But the movie is no more disturbing than what goes on in other countries and cultures. To paint this picture that "OMG, WHITE KIDS ARE MONSTERS" is bigoted itself. I'm not saying this doesn't and didn't happen after 9/11, and it is wrong if it did or does happen; however, the majority of people do NOT act like this or support this kind of behavior, from ANY group, regardless of color, religious affiliation, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc....

Anti social behavior is Anti social behavior..PERIOD.. Your background doesn't give you a pass to act differently from everyone else when it comes to such behavior.. Whether it's Muslim extremists who stone, castrate or BEHEAD people (as done many times online and in the movie - no one wants to discuss that), African nations committing white and gay genocide, Latino gangs and murdering border jumping drug cartels, Asian street gangs, Boyz in da Hood drive by shootings, A Clockwork Orange style gangs, The Italian Mafia, the Russian Mafia or Heteros beating up Gays, or Christian and Religious people persecuting non believers of their fairytales, which they've done for centuries - NONE of it is new....Anyone who thinks it is, is totally naïve or refuses to admit it.. This whole notion that any group can say whatever they want and preach hate, but if it's coming from anyone white - "OMG, it's atrocious, and so scary!!!" is beyond ridiculous. Drive by's are scary, Beheadings are scary, kidnapping drug lords are scary... But a white guy with an angry opinion - "OMG - SO TERRIFYING!!!". It's such a huge double standard.. and sometimes double standards can and will create animosity.

5.0 out of 5 stars terrifying February 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.
