Very EVIL vibes coming from this movie
It's nothing but torture porn with nothing else to it, it relies on shock value only. The deaths aren't even interesting. Watch it if you want to waste your time and just to regret wasting an hour on this shit.
A cheap looking, largely artificial exploration of death in its many forms, Faces Of Death attempts to achieve authenticity but radiates falseness and deception, with a significant number of the segments being clearly staged, badly I might add, yet purported to be true. If they'd simply trimmed out the fake stuff and provided more details on what was real it might have been of some value. I love stories of the gruesome and macabre, and that's what Faces Of Death should have been, with some fascinating science thrown in. Instead the film diminishes its own quality by showing shoddily filmed, horribly edited segments of staged violence and death and trying to pass them off as real. As such, it's not only a bad documentary but also a wasted opportunity, and something I wouldn't bother to watch again.
I loved this movie as a kid. Now that I looked it up as an adult and found out that it is a mockumentrey, well I feel it took a star from my heart, so I took a star from it's rateing??. Still though, I recomend seeing it if you hav'nt yet.
yeaaaah; i can see why this was banned for a while way back when just because it's a montage of people killing animals, basically, but treated like a documentary of sorts. it's not great. in fact, it's not good. i didn't finish watching it. it's just gross with no point really.
pretty good. too bad its mostly fake lol
I turned it off after about 15 minutes. Using animal abuse to make your movie shocking is not something I'm in to.
Very corny and fake, lapses in judgement and credibility, but it's got some impressive setpieces and effects although the transitions between clips is extremely clunky.
Currently, I've never given a movie a 1/2 star rating before. I've given out a 1 1/2 star rating before to a movie but never a rating this low. This is mainly because even some of the worst movies I've ever seen had at least a few things good about them. But I have always wondered when I'll be able to find a movie that is so bad that regardless of how hard I try, I would not be able to find anything in it which is even somewhat good or entertaining.
I think that I've found one.
This awful disaster of a movie is distractingly violent, super offensive, and full of shock value. I can safely say that this is one of the worst movies ever made.
This documentary really has no plot. It's just a montage of people and animals dying gruesome and bloody deaths and the narrator also gives disturbing commentary detailing how they died.
The only point to this film is to shock and disturb the viewer. It's a hard movie to watch because the movie featured gruesome deaths just for the sake of it. There was not a single moment in this movie that contained any power and I didn't feel engaged at all throughout its entirety. I enjoyed Come and See because it had power with its massacre scenes and it had intelligent violence which stayed with me long after viewing it. Faces of Death on the other hand is nothing more than just 105 minutes of endless and tiring shock value.
Also, there is one thing that really infuriates me about this movie more than anything else. It is that the movie often plays goofy and uplifting music while it shows footage of people being brutally murdered (also, most of the deaths displayed here are in fact real). Most of those people died brutal deaths here and it downright disgusted me how the movie uses the goofy music to make them sound like some kind of a sick joke. However, the movie actually offended me in this case. It proves that the directors clearly don't care at all for any of the people or animals who brutally died in this movie. This clearly has some of the worst, unfitting music ever in cinema history.
I've actually seen some people give this movie a 5/5 rating. I've read many of the reviews by them but none of them have been able to justify this movie's flaws at all and none of them have been able to convince me that this movie isn't complete garbage yet. For the entirely of this one guy's review, he rambled on for how much of this movie was fake and how much it diminishes the movie's impact because of it. Yet, that idiot gave this movie a perfect rating. I have no idea know what those people see in this movie and I don't know why they think that this movie is a masterpiece. If you think that this is a masterpiece then go watch Come and See. Then tell me that this is a masterpiece.
So in conclusion, this is an awful movie. It's just a montage of shock value and the movie handles them very poorly by throwing in super unfitting music which I found to be highly offensive. There was not a single moment in this movie that even somewhat interested me and I was extremely glad after this movie ended. This is the worst documentary I've seen and this is also the worst movie I've ever seen as well.
LAME!!! It's also mean spirited without any real value or excitement into a real taboo subject.
