Critic Reviews for King Of The Ants
Darker than pitch and unusually effective in showcasing the brutality and ugliness of murder.
Apesar da abordagem incorreta de Gordon (que pensa estar dirigindo um terror), o filme se beneficia do interessante roteiro e das ótimas atuações de McKenna, Baldwin e Wendt.
Audience Reviews for King Of The Ants
King of the Ants is a disturbing and violent tale of the dark side of humanity and betrayal. It is brutal and dehumanizing, I don't really understand why Stuart Gordon decided to make this film but he didn't make it right for sure. Part torture porn, part revenge thriller, King of the Ants lived up to it's title and managed to shock it's viewers.
From Stuart Gordon we get another gem. The back made it look like some kind of monster flick, but it was just a still from a dream sequence, which was a little disappointing. Still, pretty messed up, and the guys face after being beaten with golf clubs for weeks is really nasty/awesome. Plus, who doesn't want to see the fat guy from Cheers get his head cut off?
A very grim and disturbing low budget movie that will not be for everyone's taste, it is a Stuart Gordon movie after all. It's a lot better than average B-movie releases. The story, though grim natured, is interesting and compelling. The acting on the whole was good, particularly by the lead actor, Chris McKenna, in his first leading role, who is in almost every single scene, and for the movie to really succeed his performance needed to be strong and he certainly pulled it off. It's violent, dark and disturbing, but if that's your thing it's well worth watching.
