The Red Effect is a hard-hitting drama with a strikingly familiar storyline: An unarmed black teenager is shot and killed by a white man.
Directed by Jordan Miller, this intense and thought-provoking film doesn't hold back from asking the difficult questions. Exploring the hypocrisy of our supposed post-racial America and the strength of the human spirit to survive through adversity and learn to persevere.

1. The "our research was stolen by capitalism" cliche can't work this way - you mean to tell me that a company spent billions of dollars acquiring a majority share but froze out the only experts on it, so if they can't get it to work they wasted all that money? I bet that guy had fun explaining himself to their shareholders. This could've been changed to any other version of executive meddling and it would've worked way better.
2. Instead of thinking about the story, I'm thinking "There is no DMT flood - that's stupid." First, how does that help an already dying body survive or reproduce, and therefore, contribute that process to the gene pool? Second, in order to trip your brain cells need oxygen - the lack of which is precisely what leads to death.
We don't need to know any of that, though, so why did the characters turn what could've been a suspense building mystery into a distracting goof?
3. Imagine your computer running every program on it simultaneously. That's what you get if the "other 90% of your brain" brain was active all at once - a seizure.
Same problem - if we don't need to know how something works, you don't need to talk about it!
