Alex and Marcus are a couple whose story is told over the course of a fateful day. The tumultuous odyssey begins with a brutal killing then unspools in reverse to reveal the horrifying events that lead to the gut-wrenching, violent climax of the opening scene. IRREVERSIBLES disturbing look at fate and destiny pushes the envelope of human emotions and takes filmmaking to another level.
Irreversible begins with the closing credits running backwards before the film begins (or ends) with Marcus (Vincent Cassell) and Pierre (Albert Dupontel) being escorted out of a gay S&M club by the cops, Marcus with his arm broken and Pierre in handcuffs. The "story" proceeds to unwind in a series of single-take scenes that unfold Memento-style, with each scene giving more context to what we have seen previously. Each scenario depicts actions, dialogue, incident, behavior, and circumstances that the lead characters might have wished didn't happen, ranging from extreme violence through awkward social situations to mild embarrassment. The central character (and possible dreamer of this whole what-if story) emerges as Alex (Monica Bellucci), who suffers the worst in a very hard-to-watch rape sequence in an underpass. Semi-improvised, the scenes all have attack and power as themes, with later/earlier conversational sequences that suggest life isn't all sexual assaults in the dark, showing equal cinematic imagination with the horrors. Arguably, this is not a film most would subject themselves to twice, but it is something that stays in the mind for days after viewing, sparking far more ideas and emotions than most wallow-in-nastiness pictures. --Kim Newman
I really enjoyed this movie. It is incredibly disturbing in some parts as well, so only for a very mature adult audience. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Dave from BC
I saw this movie, I did not like this movie because I gave this one star. Stick to other Monica Bellucci movies.Published 17 months ago by Kevin Barton
This movie is horribly written, filmed and the message is disgusting. Soundtrack designed to induce nausea. This director should be banned from making films.Published on March 23 2013 by Scrat

I bought this movie because of Monica Bellucci. It is the worst movie ever, it will make you feel like you are on a bad drug trip or something.Published on Sept. 12 2012 by Roger Weaver
