CGiii Comment

Politics and plot-holes seem to have derailed this Die Hard-ish re-make! Or, is it a re-interpretation!?!

If you can completely suspend your disbelief [and it is a big ask]...then, prepare yourselves for a something that is as unsubtle as a brick in the face. Kyle Rankin lays it on thick...pitching that inalienable right to self-defence against gun control. It's worth mentioning that gun control in America is out-of-control...it ain't rocket science, but when kids can get their hands on firearms and use them, the system ain't broken, it is absolutely f^&ked!

The only surprise in Run Hide Fight is...there are no surprises. This isn't the lunatics taking over the asylum...this is the bullied wrecking lives...where an empathy could have existed [which would have made the film far more interesting], Kyle Rankin pulls that [potentially empathetic] rug from under these incredibly well-organised gay gothy kids feet as soon as they strive for their 15 minutes of viral fame. 

By being both ridiculously sensational and highly irresponsible, Run Hide Fight flails under its own failings...school shootings should not be sensationalised, not because they are a reality that persist...but, because of a film like this has the potential power to persist this shameful reality.
