  Great movie

| | See all neonknight4's reviews (1)

Amazing thriller, reveals a lot of what;s going in a self-obsessed serial killer's mind.
Bale is exceptional on this role.
The only negative feature is that this particular DVD has no subtitles at all (not even for those with hearing problems).

This has to be my best best Christian Bale film ever.
Christion Bale i think was jast amazing in this movie.
I think he also brought alot of comedy to this role aswell as being a psycho like chasing a blond threw an apartment block with a chainsaw to breaking up in a resturant with his girlfriend "Reece Witherspoon" in a harsh but yet very funny way.
all in all a really good movie if your a christian bale fan...10/10 from me

  very good adaptation of a great cult book

the story itself, as well in the book as in the movie, is very convincing and intriguing: about a high class pscyhopath and sadistic serial killer, performed here -very enthousiastically- by christian bale who shows he really is a good actor. don't expect anything nice in this movie, even the nice things have only one reason: they lead to very bad things. it's not that he's playing a very lovable person, but you might get to appreciate (not 'like') what he does... in his mind he's only defending himself from the stupidity and ignorance of other people, and how.

This in my opinion has to go down as one of the top 10 movies ever made and definately Christian Bales best. He is a Wall Street investment banker who comes across as a genuine person who is a little full of himself but deep down he is a psychopath...within his mind at least. Whilst the story is fantastically told i also enjoyed the gore scenes. Christian Bale makes this film as good as it is because of his fantastic acting skills. Enjoy

It's a favorite movie of mine. I've always been a fan of gore film genres and this really is a good example of that.

He is border line psychotic and throughout the movie and goes out in killing rampages which are quite shockingly disturbing.

His acting was very impressive, very convincing as the mentally disturbed character Patrick Bateman in which he portrays in the movie.

Overall how I would sum it up - Great acting/Violent throughout/Good storyline with a slight twist.

  He is behind you.....

I was pleasently suprised by this movie, it is actually really good!

I hadn't heard much about the film, only that there was a book in which I still have got to read. I'm a big fan of Christian Bale so I trusted my insticts and bought the film while it was on sale and I wasn't disppointed. Bale is brilliant as always and I love the story.

It's violent yet funny, entertaining yet serious. It's just, wonderful.

  Great Film

This is one hell of a film!
If you are fan of psycho movies or Dexter then you will enjoy this. Well worth the 4quid. One of Bale's best performances.

  Psychotically good

There's a devillish glee to this rather clever adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis's horrifically caustic novel, and it works a treat. So the film expertly depicts a hidden psycho in the corporate finance world but also pokes merciless fun at his very madness. It helps enormously that the serial killer Patrick Bateman is played by a buffed-up Christian Bale in peak form. He totally nails the dead eyes of a cold-blooded killer, living in a world where a man so relentlessly evil is barely even noticed.
