  pure genius, but not for everyone.

The most intense film I've ever seen and easily the best of 2009. Then again it's not for everyone, as others point out here: if you expect '300' you'll be very dissapointed. If you like your movies challenging, you'll love this. Even better than this years 'Driver'. Buy buy buy.

  One of the most original films ever created.

This is a real audience divider, you will either worship the ground in which it was built on or despise its every minute. Some of the best cinematography I've ever seen and Mads Mikkelsen gets in some serious shape for a really brutal opening 20 minutes, the story could have been better and I will admit the ending is stupid, but it's not for fans of Transformers who will of been mislead by the front cover.

Good film.

  There should be a zero start rating....

Utter utter rubbish!
After the first 20 minutes I was ready to switch it off.. Believing the reviews on the cover of the box I stuck with it thinking it must get better..
It doesnt

Did find a use for the dvd though. It now spends its life as a coffee mug coaster. Dont you just love recycling.

This film advertises itself as an action packed movie full of fight scenes and gore. Its a million miles from that. Its so slow i found myself fast forwarding hoping that i may see the thrilling fight scene i expected but i never did find it. The film goes 10-15 minutes at times without anyone saying a word, its just so boring as my title says please do not waste your time watching this film your better of going to sleep for 88 minutes.

What was that all about? The film has some lovely scenery...but that's no reason to give this film anything more than a 1 star. The acting was average, the main character was not intimidating or particularly brutal (except when forced to fight at the begining of the film) and the claims that this film was thought provoking or in anyway a social commentary on any aspect of religion are false. This was a student film makers first attempt at being artistic by using every arty trick in one film. Unfortunately, the lack of evolution of plot or character leaves me feeling like I have been mislead, and cheated out of my hard earned cash.

And the DVD packaging, and the trailer, leads one to believe that Bill Hicks was correct to say "If you are in advertising or marketing...kill yourself"!

  Atmospheric & mesmerising

| | See all hax0rd00d's reviews (6)

If you're expecting a hack and slash action film, this isn't for you. However, if you like thought provoking, beautifully shot films with a mesmeric, contemplative quality, then give this one a try. For me it has a similar quality to 'Aguirre, the Wrath of God', 'The Thin Red Line' and Tarkovsky's 'Solaris' & 'Stalker' - simply stunning.
