Austin Chick's GIRLS AGAINST BOYS is clothed in the sort of misguided feminism that shoves a gun in the hands of leggy bartenders and calls them empowered.

The B-horror standbys that might rescue the film from self-serious tedium are nowhere to be found.

Girls Against Boys is a pro-female exploitation flick that completely misses the mark on being pro-female, exploitation, and most importantly, a good movie.

Essentially a horror movie in which the source of the horror shifts from capital-M men to crazed lesbianism.

There's nothing cool or sexy or thrilling about this lame attempt at a revenge thriller that deserves any attention beyond the DVD bin.

Panabaker and LaLiberte give their all, but the movie is all moral compass and mainstream emotion, and never as edgy or transgressive as it thinks it is.

Conclusion is a bit of a gimme and telegraphed through the movie, but Boys has moments of inspired mental submersion and wretched behavior. However, any attempt to provide lasting meaning to the mayhem falls disappointingly short.

Devoid of humor, style, and any sense of narrative craftsmanship, "Girls Against Boys" is a truly awful rip-off.

When it comes to "Girls Against Boys," it's a draw - everyone loses.

A mopey, whiny, and very homophobic thriller...
Brent Simon
March 21, 2013
A wan, overly precious and self-satisfied psychological thriller that tries to toe the line between gender statement and ambiguity, and fails.

A dumb, dreary, let's-get-back-at-them slasher in which pulverized genitals pass for feminist critique.

This Chick pic's greatest provocation is how slow and disengaged it feels.

There's a muddled message somewhere amid the attempted provocation.

Writer-director Austin Chick throws in echoes of Abel Ferrara's feminist grindhouse classic Ms. 45, but the provocation feels hollow and the stylish direction-filled with pensive slo-mo-just slows things down.

Girls Against Boys is undone by Chick's apparent supposition that he's the first filmmaker to notice how men sometimes take advantage of women, or how putting a gun in an actress' hands can be a complicated symbol of empowerment.

There's more going on beneath the surface here than just another "angry women act out" horror story.

...a seriously off-the-wall little movie that offers more entertainment value than most efforts of this ilk...

It would be too easy to dismiss it as a simplistic horror-thriller..a movie that seems full of sharp edges and unexpected turns, one that you probably haven't seen before.
