    Synopsis


    Green Room
    A down-on-their-luck punk band accept an offer to play a rural Oregon club before calling their failing tour quits. When they arrive at the venue, they're troubled by the large neo-Nazi presence, but go through with their set regardless. They retreat to the backstage room afterward, only to be greeted by the corpse of a young woman on the floor and the neo-Nazis standing above her. Fearful that the band will contact the authorities, the gang hold them hostage as their leader (Patrick Stewart) tries to think of a solution to this sticky situation. Soon, the bandmates are fighting for their lives as they attempt to escape the club. Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat star in this violent cat-and-mouse thriller from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

      Great Dark Film

      One of my main reasons to buy this film is because it has Patrick Stewart, and I saw an interview with him on playing this role of a Neo (Term for the Third Reich post WWII member) leader out to kill these band members. I also like small films like this like 'It Follows' or 'Ex Machina'. From the beginning is sets a tone of these band members just trying to make a living of their music and trying to catch a venue. They manage to get one at some backwoods Neo (Term for the Third Reich post WWII member) club and then soon after they run into trouble and this is where things go downhill fast. A lot of dialogue was well written some parts were better left out or written better. The main actor some of his delivery could have been better, the characters overall are semi interesting but you can actually feel the struggle the encounter in order to escape the club. I did think Patrick Stewart would have a better role in this film but it was more of a shot caller type character., but it still worked. Overall I'd give this film a 7/10 Stewart's with a 4/5 film on the weekend with your buddies who want to see some young people and Neo (Term for the Third Reich post WWII member)getting murdered.

      I loved Jeremy Saulnier's "Green Room!" Despite the elements that remind you this is a movie e.g. the beautiful cinematography and recognizable actors, Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin, the movie presents a palpable sense of horror that feels real because our main cast of characters react as everyday people would to these not so normal circumstances. Yelchin is the only one that feels out of place in this film, but it adds a layer to his character as the musician who doesn't have an answer to the question: who is your desert island band? Stewart plays Darcy the club owner. He's calm and callous demeanor is horrifying when realize that he's terrorizing a group of kids for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Saulnier paces the movie very well balancing tension, quiet moments and action but always moving the movie forward even though the characters spend most of the time backstage in the green room. 4.5 out of 5

      A grim masterpiece

      I knew nothing about this going in, other than the synopsis on the packaging, so the sheer dark excellence of the thing came as a pleasant surprise. The first twenty minutes or so sets us up with the starving punk band on the road couch surfing and stealing gas for the van...just long enough for character development and not ten seconds longer, and then... The "road movie" explodes in your face and never lets up. I'm not much on spoilers, so you'll have to see it, but suffice to say there's something for most fans here. Clever writing, dark humor, grisly-but not gratuitous-violence, and a bunch of "didn't see that coming" twists. For best effect try to see this one with a minimum of previous information regarding the plot, then just sit back and get kicked in the head....repeatedly. Highly recommended.

      I had heard good things about Green Room and was interested even before I realized it was one of Anton Yelchin's last films. It is only fitting that he delivers a standout performance in this taught thriller. The story focuses on a down-and-out Thrash band who finds a gig in a remote club run by White Supremacists. After a tense set, as they are about to leave, one of the band members witnesses a brutal crime in the club's Green Room. Soon they are being held against their will and complete, violent, chaos ensues. The film had my son and I on the edge of our seats the whole time. Both of us immediately started recommending it to others the next day. This movie is well worth the, usually sale, price. In fact it is worth full price in my opinion. See this movie!

      I won't ruin any plot points but, it's a decent movie. It reminds me of the old Southern Comfort movie where a gang of National Guardsmen are trapped amongst a bunch of vicious locals. More recently think Eden Lake, which I thought was effective. Only this time its a band against sort of pseudo-you-know-whos that the website is banning me from saying. The movie does a good job of not explaining and you feel pretty trapped with the band and there are some good shocks but, it sort of circles around the sets a bunch of times and ends with a sort of alrighty then. Not bad, not great. Worth 10 bucks? Probably. But, I think Eden Lake was better.

      So intense and well-made in every department. Horrific, funny, disturbing, engaging, scary...it's been in my mind since I saw it four days ago. I can't wait to see it again. I loved Blue Ruin but felt the ending wasn't as strong as the rest of the film. Green Room on the other hand is more consistently excellent from beginning to end. The cast is great, the cinematography is beautiful, the writing and directing are brilliant, the editing is fast-paced, the use of sound and music are effective, the art direction/set design is claustrophobic, the violence is realistic and shocking. The more I think about it, the more I realize how smart and subversive it is.

      I saw this movie in theaters when it came out and caught me off guard. Me being an old school punk rocker, this movie about a punk band on tour looking for place to play. They get hooked up with a promoter who screws them over on a gig but offers them a gig where his cousin hangs out at. The cousin is a racist skinhead. The kids get to the venue and witness a murder. They are then held up in a white supremacist venue on a fight for survival. It's labeled as a horror movie,but more of a thriller. Defiantly worth the watch. Patrick Stewart kills it as always.
