Extremely watchable, even if it never goes as deep as it should.

Hafström's dramatic sense is ... pedestrian and snail's-pace obvious.

Movies like Evil entertain us by serving sweet revenge on a platter, and director Mikael Håfström manipulates emotions more intelligently than most.

Wilson, who plays Erik, had never been in a film before Evil -- which was nominated for a best foreign-language Oscar in 2004 -- and there's no reason that he can't make many more of them.

A commentary on the troubling gray area between acceptable and unacceptable forms of violence, especially where the molding of boys into 'real men' is concerned.

The way it plays out, Evil feeds the audience's bloodlust as much as it decries the worst acts of its characters.

Hafstrom ... keeps us guessing as he confidently builds suspense.

Hafstrom never finds the shades in his morality tale, so while Wilson is an intensely charismatic actor, all he can do is respond to relentless, escalating tortures. It's immensely unpleasant for him, and, frankly, not a whole lot better for us.

Although Evil eventually suffers from its heavy-handed treatment of its subject, it is a well-made and engrossing melodrama.

The movie is as blunt as its title.

Wilson is a powerful presence as the slow-burning but, when roused, very violent Erik, while Lundstrom movingly portrays the vulnerable Pierre.

Comes perilously close to making Erik's suffering at the hands of sadistic upperclassmen seem almost fetishistic.

Watching this time bomb tick away is never less than riveting.

The milieu owes something to Lindsay Anderson's If.... , but Evil is less anti-authority than pro-confrontation.
