This is how you do a remake.

Worst movie I have ever watched. Many times I asked my boyfriend "unpause" the movie... but.. it was actually playing it's just that nothing was happening. Will never get that time back..

Clever and intriguing. Funny Games will have people on the edge of their seats. Great performances, deep with commentary that's both interesting and entertaining. However, most audiences won't sit well with this type of film without a level of patience and observation, this isn't your usual thriller. Funny Games is packed with all the best from Michael Haneke, although with a bit of a flat third act. See this with an open mind, appreciate it for what it is, at most.

probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen. you watch it, and then finish it realizing nothing actually occurred besides a few murders. and then, just like that, it ends. also, incredibly anti-climactic.

Brilliant film, very twisted

The most predictable movie of all time. And if you're not up to figuring it out, it tells you what's going on. The only reason to push through to the end is to see if something interesting happens, and at one point it looks as if it did, but then it didn't happen after all.

The worst movie I have ever seen. I will never get those 2 hours back and I am literally angry about it.

Just so bad it hurts

Absolutely awful. If you want to feel frustrated for a couple of hours, this is the film for you.

Maybe not an entirely necessary remake but this Americanized version of Michael Haneke's brilliant experiment retains the same intelligence and skill that the original introduced.

sadistic thriller at the right point

Two young men punish a family for being bland.
½ December 9, 2016
Focusing primarily on physical torture and emotional distress without any character motivation to back it up, Funny Games has little to offer other than a depressing exercise in pain and suffering, and the end result is cruel, unnerving, nihilistic and altogether unnecessary.

A pretty good thriller that does slow down an hour in or so but picks up a little bit latter, also this movie is surprisingly meta.

An unflinching excercise in subversion of American violence in comtemporary cinema that sets up novice audiences in the first half with witty and charasmatic performances - only to spend the rest of the film taking all that we think we know about invasion thrillers, horror films, and just bout 'horror' in general, before it delivers the casually grim final blow.

Ciao, bella.

This film is insult defined. Funny Games presents sadism as evenly and monotone as the local news reports death, destruction and inane violence, without concern or productive thought. Creating anything requires some level of rationalization and purpose - not necessarily value. As such, I am at a loss here.

I believe the director and producers of this film have taken for granted our intelligence as an audience. What is their rationalization, or need to make this insulting film? How would Naomi Watts, one of the producers, describe the purpose of this film to her family - in particular her children?

Really stupid premise - and stop addressing the camera. Also - shot soooo slowly

Horrible movie/plot line one of the strangest movies I've ever seen not scary at all would not recommend watching this waste of time

The most sadistic film i have seen, directed at both the characters and the audience. Incredible performances all around. Haneke says he wanted to make people feel disturbed by this film and i think he accomplishes that, but not to the exact degree he wanted. Instead of being repulsed by the horrors i was captivated by how well crafted they actually were. I think this is a great deconstruction of what makes horror appealing and questions the audience's motives in participating. I can't recommend this to most people, but i sure enjoyed it.
