Well cast, well acted, well written, and overturns our comfort level about the natural order of things, this was a difficult film to view, considering my affection for Ms. Watts .
The terrify part of the antagonists is their lack of genuine malice; they seem to act out of boredom, instigating the incidents and gauging their following acts from an amoral assessment of the next logical steps.
The film is about a well-off couple with son who set off to their cottage for a relaxing vacation. They are soon ambushed by two weird young guys who soon invade their home and torture them.
This is a very violent and very shocking film and should not be watched by anyone put off by scenes of torture. The villans are well-played and Naomie Watts was also great. Tim Roth however was a dissapointment and his character pathetic. The film has an art-house feel to it and can be considered experimental cinema, definitely not conventional stuff. Rent, but only with an open mind.
Brady Corbet as the childish and shy Peter seemed at first to be a horrible casting decision. His first scene was fantastic, then for awhile he didn't contribute anything besides being the muscle for Paul's plan. After the movie started to pick up speed however, he really started to shine through, and I wouldn't be surprised if this role lands him a few more parts in the genre. Michael Pitt's performance as the mastermind behind the operation was flawless. The way he manage to stay calm and polite and yet, come off as a complete sociopath was fantastic. Paul repeatedly breaks the 4th wall to talk to the audience; asking for their approval, whether they think they've gone far enough, or sometimes just to smile maniacally. At first I thought it took away from the film, then I came to realize it only added to the message of the film, that we as the audience want to be completely shocked, and the only reason we watch movies like this are to feel sorry for the people involved. Or perhaps we are on the other side of the fence and want to see these people suffer. Whatever your fancy is, I'm sure you'll be thoroughly satisfied with this movie.Read more ›

This film was boring and long. The acting was poor and the storyline even poorer; one of the worst horror films I have ever seenPublished on April 6 2013 by Camille
