Critic Reviews for Raze

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (14) | Rotten (18)

The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

Prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago.

The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only.

"Raze" is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

If you can stand to watch this movie -- a big if -- there is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more.

New York Times
Top Critic

The entertainment value of the violence trumps most of the larger meaning, and the film exploits its characters just as they do their prisoners.

Top Critic

The fights are visceral and gruesome without going too far, but by the sixth or seventh bout, the lack of variation becomes noticeable.

Under the Radar

Raze ultimately becomes little more than a tiresome endurance test ... Still, much like a less accomplished The Raid, some viewers may respond to its bloody, take-no-prisoners style.

Full Review… | May 19, 2014
Quickflix

The film favors brutal violence over any sort of social commentary, making its half-hearted stab at female empowerment feel hollow.

Full Review… | January 31, 2014
Cinemalogue.com

The tease of 50 gorgeous women fighting to the death has a classic grindhouse appeal, but Raze is strictly a "be careful what you wish for" proposition.

The Dissolve

As violent as it is, Raze is refreshing.

Full Review… | January 16, 2014
Paste Magazine

Raze is strong stuff, but also briskly paced and interested in the psychological ramifications of such unrelenting brutality.

Blu-ray.com

For an exploitation movie about girls beating each other to death, 'Raze' doesn't want you to have a lot of fun.

Metro

Fight Club looks tame and rather cheery compared to the hellish scenario Raze thrusts Bell and a number of other warrior women into.

Examiner.com

If "Raze" had been released in 1975, Quentin Tarantino would never shut up about it.

Audience Reviews for Raze

½

This exploitation film that is all about violence, was directed by Josh C. Waller. Written by Robert Beaucage, Kenny Gage and Josh C. Waller it has a lot for the lovers of this genre... but I have to say, am not one of them! The film premiered on April 21, 2013 at the Tribeca Film Festival and stars ZoŽ Bell, Rachel Nichols and Tracie Thoms as women forced to fight for the twisted entertainment of the wealthy elite.

[img]http://www.themarysue.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/raze-580x214.jpg[/img]

The story of Sabrina (ZoŽ Bell), who is kidnapped along with 49 other women by the diabolical husband and wife team of Elizabeth (Sherilyn Fenn) and Joseph (Doug Jones). The women are told that they will fight to the death for the entertainment of a group of bored rich people. If they lose or refuse to fight, a sniper will kill their loved ones...

Waller tried to treat the film "as seriously as if it were men that were abducted and forced to fight each other." He tried really hard to avoid stereotypes typically seen, such as nudity, as he felt that viewers would not see this in an all-male exploitation film. Of course, this is not a film which will appeal to everyone... it is for lovers of the genre only, and most of the others would be overwhelmed by the violence and the level of the exploitation.
