"American Weapon" was just fundamentally boring and a waste of time. I will say that the movie started out slow, then took a turn towards resembling something from the late 1980's - the golden age of slasher movies. But then it just turn stale, bad and awful very, very bad. A group of young people are spending time in a cabin, when a deranged killer - a former soldier in the American army - starts to kill them. Yep, that was it. That was essentially the entire movie summarized in a single sentence. Do not get your hopes up for anything in particular here, because there were really nothing to makes it worthwhile to sit through this movie. There was nothing scary or even remotely worth mentioning in the movie. The death scenes and methods of killing were boring, half-hearted and something of a painful experience to witness. And the killer himself, well, he is nowhere near becoming as menacing as iconic characters such as Jason, Freddy or Michael. A middle-aged man running around in military camouflaged outfit, bearing a grudge because he was sort of abused in the American army, just doesn't hold up a stick to anyone in the slasher genre. The only reason for this getting a 2 out of 10 stars rating, and not a 1 rating, is simply because the production value to the movie was fairly alright, as was the camera work. The rest of the movie just suffered horrendously under the pointless and utterly irrelevant storyline presented in "American Weapon". If you enjoy slasher movies, then stay well clear of this particular movie.
