This is an interesting concept but for me didn't fully develop its potential in making this as controversial or as shocking as it could have been. By setting the basis of the plot around the abduction, rape, and murder of an 8 year old girl, it's clear that the director is not afraid to push the boundaries in this one, so it then becomes a great shame that what happens after is not really all that memorable. The remainder of the story basically then follows the girls dad on a personal revenge mission to kidnap the murderer of his child, and torture them for several days up until what would have been the child's birthday seven days later. In the meantime, the police, led by someone who himself lost a loved one to a criminal not so long before, continue to seek out the whereabouts of the make shift torture chamber. At first, some of the surgical methods used on the villain come across as very brutal but they were few and far between as they instead tried to develop the character relationships a little more and make one ponder whether revenge would ultimately solve anything. They then petered out completely towards the end which was a shame as there was little action time as it was, and without it, the film did become a little slow and uninspiring. I do have to give them credit for conjuring up the torture technique of rearranging someone's digestive system so that they excrete out on their stomach though. Never seen that before, so it was a bit rancid to see someone with an unwiped anus on the side of their body! It's all acted well, and there's no problem with the film requiring subtitles, but having set the shock factor bar very high in terms of its plot, and opening scenes, I feel the rest of the movie is quite a let down in comparison. I enjoyed the unpredictability of how it was going to end given that different people would react in different ways to such an event, and I enjoyed the various personality traits being explored throughout the characters involved. It's not one I'll be keen to re-watch in a hurry, but admittedly it has taken a memorable idea but just executed it in a distinctly average fashion.
