This is routine Roth as usual. Homophobia, attempted nihilism, vapid writing, paper thin plot, and nonsensical all the way...
July 9, 2007
Roth proves unable to control the tone of his premise, in the end pandering too much to the male adolescent audience that he at first seems to be satirising.

While there are some cheap thrills to be had here, much of the movie is profoundly boring.

Hostel's merely unpleasant and more than a little dumb.

Sadly, as with [director Eli] Roth's promising but flawed debut feature, its central conceit is more compelling than what ended up on screen.

Ao apelar para nossos impulsos mais baixos (ainda que inegavelmente naturais), adota uma postura niilista repulsiva.

Hostel is depraved, sick and disgusting - which means teenagers should love it.
March 21, 2006
Beyond its 'How far can I go?' attitude to violence, Hostel has no reason to exist.

While Eli Roth certainly knows the tune, he clearly doesn't know the horror genre in this thinly-veiled assault on humanity.

Viewers check in... and just as quickly check out!

This is a vile exploitation film, and a shoddily-made one, that's half softcore porn and half horror porn.
January 15, 2006
There's a feeling of not quite hitting the mark here.
January 14, 2006
All this in a 94-minute movie that takes 45 minutes getting started!
January 13, 2006
Silly, bloody nonsense that should appeal to hormonally challenged teens.

Although I spent much of the second half staring into my lap while listening to a cacophony of screams and shop tools, I processed enough of the first to appreciate Roth's sinister evocation of a Slovakian provincial town.

Is there a point? No. Will you like it? Perhaps, but if you do... you should see someone about that.
January 11, 2006
Wants to be preeminent shock cinema, but doesn't have the [courage] to fully follow through on its promise of unbridled carnage.
January 11, 2006
Setting aside the question of the value of horror where the entire raison d'être of the film lies in showing people being tortured and murdered, the very format is limited.
January 10, 2006
Pure exploitation, ineptly made, and completely repulsive.
