Goofs

When Pat fires the final shot (of 3 shots left), his handgun is left in the cocked position. Even if the gun were truly empty, the slide would not necessarily have to be in the eject mode (locked open). There are several reasons that a handgun slide could remain forward in the "cocked position" after the last round is fired and it is empty. Certain parts of the gun could have been replaced with aftermarket parts, or an aftermarket magazine could be used, both of which may not engage the "last shot hold open" feature. Also, certain grips on the gun would cause the slide release to be depressed while firing, possibly due to poor technique, which would prevent the slide from remaining open after the last round has been fired.

Simply one of the most dreadful movies I've ever seen in my life
15 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, this is the most abysmal, confusing, and vapid film I've ever seen. There isn't one single redeemable quality about it, nor is there any form of recommendation from me to see it. I want to write this review with the hopes that I can spare as many people as I can from viewing this awful dreck.

From the critics' point of view, this film fails on every single metric that's used to gauge what comprises "good cinema". Let's run through it, point by point.

The sound editing is muddled to the point where dialogue is vastly inaudible.

The cinematography is hazy and dark, and NOT in a good way that would give the supposition that we are seeing a "disturbing" film with a grittiness to it.

Every character is unlikeable to the extreme!! The acting is horrid! The movie is factually incorrect. There were so many negative and misleading stereotypes about punk culture that it made me fume on the inside. This movie conveys the fallacy that punks are all about being hateful and self-loathing, and bashing in peoples' skulls. I'd expect this from the Hollywood propaganda machine, but not from an indie project such as this that aims to tell us a tale with some kind of meaning behind its subject matter. That's part of the reason why I went to see this movie in the first place. But instead, all I see are a bunch of biased and anecdotal generalizations of a subculture that's meant to establish peace and anti-authoritarian mentalities.

And most importantly, there is absolutely ZERO plot. Don't let any other positive reviews here fool you on this point - they are lying through their teeth and quite frankly, I think it's a marketing ploy to get you to spend the money to see this film! The "story" is incomprehensible. From the first minute until the last, I was completely lost. It's cliché to say this, but I kept trekking along, hoping.......hoping......that there would be some kind of revelation at the end or a climax that would make me question and rethink everything I had just seen in the previous 90 minute runtime. But nope! As you get further into a film, that window of hope gets smaller and smaller. After all, if you don't care about the characters or the story within the first half an hour, you NEVER will. No matter how decent the ending might be.

I'm seeing all the good reviews praising this movie's concept of "gore". If that's what passes for "entertainment" nowadays, then I will never set foot in a movie theatre again. You can absolutely incorporate gore into a movie and make it highly watchable, a la "Saw". But Saw actually has a plot... and a point! It had horror, drama, thrills, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense.

Green Room had none of that - just one mundane scene after another, culminating into a collage of worthlessness and nothing to make heads or tails of once the end credits started rolling.

Save your money.... PLEASE! If you want to watch a disturbing masterpiece, watch Blue Velvet!
