I think most of the audience was rooting for the good guys. If you were romanced by the voyeuristic sadism, that's not the movie's flaw.

Wrong. The whole point of the movie is to implicate the audience and the director has said as much. The fact that the sadism is so not fun in this movie is supposed to make you feel guilty for enjoying it in other movies.
