Movie Info

Director and screenwriter Adam Bhala Lough takes the reigns for this tale of suburban mayhem that made its world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. It's the end of another work week in a typical, working class American suburb, and everyone is looking to cut loose before getting back into the daily grind come Monday. When a series of vicious and apparently random youth-related killings shake this quiet community to its very core over the course of three unforgettable days, however, an investigation soon leads the populace to find that there may be a connecting string that ties all of these brutal homicides together.

These are not characters most people can sympathy with. One tends to watch dispassionately as the inevitable plays out.

One of the weakest films at this year's Sundance dramatic competition, Weapons is a violent crimer that rehashes familiar turf of the "youth, crime and neighborhood" movie genre, better and deeper explored in numerous indies of the past 15 years.

It's basically just another "teens hate everyone, especially each other" story.

What this childish wallow was doing in the Dramatic Competition at Sundance only Robert Redford's minions know.
