Raze Reviews

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.

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

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 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.

As violent as it is, Raze is refreshing.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

There's enough craft and intelligence at work here that you can't dismiss "Raze" as meaningless sadism, but not nearly enough to make it worth the unpleasantness of actually watching it.

This ugly, dull and idiotic actioner doesn't know if it wants be fun or grim. It winds up simply being deplorable exploitation.

A brain-dead exploitation flick in which barefoot, white-tank-top-clad women beat each other to death.

This brutally monotonous actioner centers around an all-female fight-to-the-death contest, but viewers of either gender may find themselves dying of boredom.

"Raze" is a sadist's idea of entertainment, mixed-martial-arts without the art, misogyny without the guilt.

Sad to say, director Josh C. Waller and his crew don't deliver the goods. At least Waller knows what he's got in Bell.
