The End of Violence Reviews

Michael Dequina

A disjointed mess where a lot goes on but nothing happens.

Dan Fienberg

Boring, incoherent and insultingly didactic. It's like Wenders has never been to America, never observed Americans and never even seen an American movie.

| Original Score: 1/5

A longwinded exercise in pretentious confusion.

Boxoffice Magazine

Wenders' observations and subtextual commentary about violence in American society are well-served by the nuances of Nicholas Klein's script.

Cinema em Cena

A trama principal se perde em um emaranhado de cenas que, rigorosamente, nada acrescentam ao filme.

A sophisticated and pensive film about a subject that fills contemporary movies and fuels our fantasies.

Skip the movie but buy the CD.

This goes on for two hours and two minutes. When I staggered out of the theater, I asked if Clinton was still president.

Richard Porton
Film Journal International

The flippancy of Wenders and Nicholas Klein's script, and the lethargic performances of a star-studded cast, trivialize presumably good intentions.

A meandering mess, a plodding dud.

Walter V. Addiego
San Francisco Examiner

It has its virtues -- Wenders is a skilled and thoughtful workman -- but hovers somewhere between a thriller and an art-house movie and won't fully satisfy fans of either.

A horrendous, useless, soulless, sprawling two hours of your life you will not get back.

Often a pretentious struggle, saved only by the important, relevant theme that occasionally emerges.

We're left feeling disappointed that an opportunity to make a fine film was lost.

Jam! Movies

Consider the paradox: By the end of The End Of Violence, a preposterous film that rails against man's inhumanity toward man, you want to do violence. To the filmmaker.

| Original Score: 2/5

Flick Filosopher

It's practically an antimovie, almost plotless, self-referential, and unsettling. It refuses to wrap up neatly or comfortingly. But it's one of the most provocative films in years.

Harvey S. Karten

If Wenders does not succeed in condemning the role of violence in movies (which was not his intention), he does unfold a work of intricate texture.

On the acting front, Pullman and the little-seen Lind are terrific, as is MacDowell.
