Pointedly ugly vigilante screed.

It doesn't take long for the film to devolve into a ludicrously far-fetched Celebrity Death Wish.

An egregiously self-serving slice of celebrity worship.

Visually uninspired and dramatically overheated, Paparazzi has overall look and feel of generic direct-to-video production.

A vigilante movie so sleazy and creepy it makes Death Wish look like a comedy.

A vigilante fable so boorish, brainless and mean-spirited, everyone involved should be locked up for assault.

No serious exploration of the issue of the invasion of privacy of celebrities but a classic exploitation picture -- topical, punchy, occasionally unintentionally laughable and morally dubious.

One has the sense that if the level of violence had been ratcheted up a little, Paparazzi might have been more of a guilty pleasure and less of a chore to watch.

A cheeseball revenge thriller with an alarmingly twisted moral.

The film is directed by Paul Abascal who exhibits all the subtlety you would expect from a director who got his start as a celebrity hair stylist.
