Critic Reviews for Girls Against Boys
The B-horror standbys that might rescue the film from self-serious tedium are nowhere to be found.
When it comes to "Girls Against Boys," it's a draw - everyone loses.
A dumb, dreary, let's-get-back-at-them slasher in which pulverized genitals pass for feminist critique.
Panabaker and LaLiberte give their all, but the movie is all moral compass and mainstream emotion, and never as edgy or transgressive as it thinks it is.
Audience Reviews for Girls Against Boys
In "Girls against Boys," college student Shae(Danielle Panabaker) is dumped by her older boyfriend Terry(Andrew Howard) when he returns to his wife. It is little consolation when he tells her that there are plenty of guys her age out there and plenty of anger when she finds out he also has a daughter. In order to cheer her up, her co-worker of two weeks, Lu(Nicole LaLiberte), takes her clubbing and drinking. But when Simon(Michael Stahl-David) takes Shae back to her place, he ends up brutally raping her.
"Girls against Boys" may have decent cinematography and a talented lead actress in Danielle Panabaker. But there is no disguising this run of the mill exploitation movie, and one that takes forever to get started, too. That's not to mention the lack of three dimensional characterization, especially regarding a lead character who comes off as feckless more than anything else, even with her travails. And as little a fan as I am of the police, it is hard to buy them as insensitive and incompetent as they are depicted here, especially once the bodies stop dropping.
"Girls Against Boys" was not as good as I thought it would be. It wasn't horrible..I just expected more from this film.
The production value on this was the highlight of this film and it gets an extra half star for the only character in the story making it fun when she was on screen. she was also the one they should have gotten more into because I found her more interesting then the typical girl they made the story about.
The pacing was bad throughout. it took a while to get into the swing of the movie and then like an out of shape runner came back to a very slow pace.
I've seen worse movies but it's not a recommendation on my part.
