worthy candidate to IMDb bottom100

Obviously its time to wake up and realize that director / writer is completely devoid of talent. All too theatrical. Dialogues dry and reminds ping-pong. Some lame theater scene. It is hard to believe that someone let this on the tape. It feels like a day before filming all have abused Rohypnol. Complete idiocy. Forgive mistakes? Why mock the viewers? And shooting full-length? A man who will say that everything is okay with the film is completely our of his mind. When a person does not feel he has no talent for direction and further dulls the surroundings, something to step up and say it loud. Time to wake up, because the movie is complete diarrhea.

I wouldn't wish this movie on my worst enemy

An utterly pointless exercise in film making that looks like a woeful student project with virtually no redeeming qualities. It is amazing to me that the producers found the funding for this folly. But, I guess they peddled the project as something other than what it turned out to be -- a worm's eye view of Vilnius designed more for shock value than anything else. Sadly, it wasn't even that shocking.

It was just plain dumb. Starting with an inert script where a mixed- race black kid comes to Vilnius looking for the grandmother he never met, and then immediately finds himself thrust into the busy nightlife of the city, managing a municipal-funded night club, only to find it is all just a cover for a sinister plot. Acting was even more awful, looking like the producer just took whatever kids at the night clubs, but then they didn't have much to go on.

reality in the country loads of problems, but few of them extremely important for Democratic EU Country

Having feelings, talent, bravery, understanding of beauty, etc. the Director transfer them to the movie 'We Will Riot"! Very specific, unique elements of Lithuanian culture was shown to the audience in it good perspective. Crystallising the bad elements in Lithuania: RACISM, HOMOPHOBIA, CORRUPTION is not unique, but radically different from a 'normal' scale in Western Culture. I was glad to support $2 watching this movie guessing that it created by a person experienced these feelings from very deep inside! This movie, that makes me think after and proud of everyone who was involved creating it! Hope that you will not SKIP this and will watch this movie and will try to understand from these people point of view? or if you already seen it together with UNDERSTAND it PLEASE make your review, too.

A Start

While I love the idea of a gay film from Lithuania and it was exciting to see such a film, it really wasn't well executed. Not much of a story in any sense and not amazing acting either. Still I think it is a great start to hopefully more gay films to come from Lithuania. The topics of racism, homophobia, interracial relationships are interesting especially set in Lithuania but needs to be done better. There were some rather big errors to me. Such as why would a Lithuanian person born in America still have such a hard time with English? Impossible. Not to mention why would he change planes on his way to Moscow in Lithuania? Also not possible. You would change planes in Moscow going to Vilnius, Moscow is a far bigger hub coming from beyond Europe.

new for me

"A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination." ― Nelson Mandela

This quote describes me the best after watching this movie. I don't know Romas Zabarauskas personally but what he did is very brave! Brave and nice for victims of homophobia, racism. Hope it gonna be good example to be brave for more people in Lithuania and other counties in the world supporting young Director!

Highly recommend to watch this movie as it absolutely different for me as I seen before!
