"Bushwick" feels like a low-budget zombie apocalypse movie without the
zombies. It's also missing a plot, character arcs, a theme, a moral and
other typical cinematic and dramatic elements. The ending feels as if
the filmmakers shot the film in sequence and ran out of money before
they could complete it. The wrong characters die for the wrong reasons.
Bautista is best known for his chiseled larger-than-life physique and
his martial arts skills, but displays neither. As he has shown in the
Guardians of the Galaxy films, he can handle comedic roles and does a
reasonable job here with a role that calls for more emotion than
action. While fans may appreciate his dramatic range and nobody would
want him to be limited in his career, they may be disappointed that he
doesn't do more fighting.
The script is a mess. Nothing makes any sense, from the plot to the military tactics to the motivation of the characters. A hodgepodge of liberal and alt-right political ideologies are presented and seemingly given equal time. I kept imagining Robert Downey Jr. in his Kirk Lazarus role from "Tropic Thunder" urgently whispering, "Never go full-on libtard."
The situation and actions seemed so improbable and unrealistic that I never developed much empathy for the characters.

BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas is trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin - in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.
