Strap in for the ride, folks. This is no casual stroll in the park. Nor is it for everyone, but for those with whom it resonates it’s absolutely on the money. Comparisons between God Bless America and the 1993 hit ‘Falling Down’ are evident throughout, though the difference is unlike in the latter, God Bless America’s protagonist Frank isn’t suffering from any sort of breakdown. He’s simply at the end of his tether. With life and the idiots who inhabit it. A chance meeting with a like-minded teenager leads the pair on the road to unbridled – and incredibly violent – chaos. And it’s brilliant.
