There were two reasons I wanted to see this movie. The first one is that it has a 74% on Rotten Tomatoes. The second is that I was really, really bored.
Alright, lets face it, most of the people intrested in seeing this movie just want to see some gruesome torture scenes. Well, sorry, not much of that here. In the few torture scenes, they often pan away from the action, or flash to it real quick and away again. Yawn.
Well, besides that, there is the most un-needed bare breasts in this film then I have ever seen in any other. The first 30 minutes are like a softcore porn with a lame plot, only it just turns into a movie with a lame plot. Basically, if you bring in some people to get tortured, depending on their nationality you get paid. I believe for Americans it was 25k. So, these shady Russians get that money. Then, rich people buy the right to torture these people. Thats basically it. No psycological aspect to it, no explaination as to why they would want to, they just do it. Just a pretty bland plot. This flim also has some of the most un-likeable charaters out of any I've seen. They are just general dicks, and call people fags and retarded and just stupidity that makes you hope that they die very, very painfully.
The best way I can explain this movie was after the ending (that was totally lame and didn't give us any info) some guy just yelled 'BOOOOOO.' So, there you have it. Oh, also, most of the audience was laughing at the 'serious' parts.
Big fat thumbs down from me.
