Maybe I missed the point of the lesson.

It's a hollow film with hopelessly annoying themes that don't arouse questions so much as eye rolls.

Brutally well-conceived... for about 40 minutes, and then "Martyrs" flips on its own bloody axis and falls apart, existentially.

ultimately a very off-putting one-trick pony

Martyrs marks new ground in the horror genre - just don't take that as a sign it's worth your time.

The air of pretentiousness and the whiff of lesbian chic suggest that the bunch of nihilists who produced this garbage will claim something for it. All it really demonstrates is that there is something seriously rotten in the state of France.

A sadistic, religiose French horror movie.

'Martyrs' is initially shocking and strong, but eventually falls apart once we are informed about what the hell is going on.

The stylishly mounted first half zips along at a rate of knots while the gruesome make-up work will keep your gag reflex in violent spasm.

Martyrs is an unforgettable (not necessarily a good thing) endurance test of a movie that provides a quasi-philosophical spin on the torture porn genre.

You may well feel in need of a shower after sitting through Martyrs, a slick essay in Gallic torture porn.

Young women are brutalised to a place beyond pain, as part of an eschatological experiment. You really don't need to see this.

Despite fancy writing, it's just another gore porn flick, out to shock for the hell of it and designed for loners who attend film festivals.

Film should score OK with hardcore gore fans, but others will expect martyrdom for sticking it out until the end.
