  Could have done with a bit more control

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (702)

The calling card movie for director Antal that took him to Hollywood is a stylishly shabby tale of the eccentrics peopling the Budapest metro system. It is actually rather reminiscent of the Luc Besson movie Subway albeit a little grubbier and has a raw energy to it that is quite appealing. But it is a ramshackle effort that ultimately does not really hang together that well.

  A fantastic dark comedy set in the underground metro system

I have only given this film 4 stars as I don't feel the dvd is up to scratch.
The film its self is brillant and has an amazing atmosphere being set in the budapest metro system. The film has dark tones but is still very funny in places. The soundtrack to this movie also adds to the atmosphere and is by a band called "neo"

The dvd is in 4:3 and doesn't have true 5.1 surround sound which is a shame, on some of the really dark scenes you can see the artifacts/blockiness almost like a divx rip. This a real shame as I was lucky enough to see a cut of this film @ the Edinburgh film festival and it was simply stunning.

Highly recommend purchasing this unless anyone knows of a blueray release in the pipeline.

  Good Movie!

Kontroll is very good European movie making indeed. I am veteran of the Budapest metro and found this movie very good how it used the actually metro and no studios. Forget that is has subtitles just enjoy the movie and take a listen to one of the most bizarrely spoken languages in the world! I guarentee you that u will prob not understand one word in the entire movie. I love this movie and I hope u will too. Sziaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
