Critic Reviews for Raze
The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten.
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for Raze
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.
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.
Conclusive proof that it's no more fun watching a bunch of women beat the crap out of each other than it is watching men do the same. Ugly and soulless, only star and stuntwoman extraordinaire Zoe Bell's commitment gives any reason to watch this filth.
This is a gory, violent movie. The run time is appropriately short, but the ending is a bit unsatisfying.
