Woke movie-goers say ‘Cocaine Bear’ ‘encourages drugs’
Wake moviegoers see the new “cocaine beer” — and they think it’s out of line.
“Cocaine Bear” earned rave reviews, grossing $8.65 million on its opening night. According to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo — but not everyone is so fond of the film.
Some “woke” viewers complained that the new film was “encouraging drug use” and “not suitable for children.”
The movie – that is Rated R Based on a true story – for gore, gore, drug content and language. In 1985, a bear was found dead in the woods of Georgia after consuming a cache of cocaine dropped from a plane by a drug smuggler.
“Cocaine Bear” shows a black bear escaping and becoming an addict willing to kill anyone who gets in his way. It follows a group of locals, tourists, criminals and police offers who come together to try to escape Bear’s drug obsession.
A controversial scene in the film shows 12-year-olds doing cocaine, which director Elizabeth Banks previously defended.
“It was definitely controversial,” Banks said Told the difference. “There was a conversation about, should we extend the lifespan of these characters? We were all kind of holding hands, and we were like, ‘Boy, it’s 12.’ Their innocence is being tested. That’s what was interesting to me about that scene.”
Some moviegoers were not satisfied with what they saw.
One viewer criticized, “Being a huge fan of the film, I found that the film lacked some soul and ambition.”
“I would give zero stars if I could,” said Amar Marshall. “It was a waste of time and I would love it if I could get a refund. It was incredibly serious and violent. We wanted to cry and throw up.
“I never want to see a movie like this again it’s a complete waste of time, and such a shame for the bears,” shared Carl Grady. “How courageously it was passed and built. Bears are beautiful animals that deserve respect. “
“I’ll give it one star because I have to and there’s a bear in it,” he added.
Others complained that the film was not family-friendly.
One viewer said the film was “encouraging teenagers to repeatedly use Class A drugs.”
“Blood, intestines and guts are not good for children to eat,” said Tanya Mitchell.
“This movie is nothing like my family,” shared Adrian Morris. “This is not for children. The amount of death and blood was horrific. “
“I can’t believe I’ve ever seen such a horrible movie. My husband loves action movies and was taken back for a few scenes. Look elsewhere or save your money. This movie is the best and will leave children with nightmares,” he added.
“Cocaine Bear” is currently in theaters.
