With plots as flimsy as the one presented here, there's a tendency to favor spectacle over character development, and it's no surprise that Raze struggles to balance the two.

The fights are visceral and gruesome without going too far, but by the sixth or seventh bout, the lack of variation becomes noticeable.

Raze ultimately becomes little more than a tiresome endurance test ... Still, much like a less accomplished The Raid, some viewers may respond to its bloody, take-no-prisoners style.

The film favors brutal violence over any sort of social commentary, making its half-hearted stab at female empowerment feel hollow.

The tease of 50 gorgeous women fighting to the death has a classic grindhouse appeal, but Raze is strictly a "be careful what you wish for" proposition.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/5
January 23, 2014
The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
January 23, 2014
Prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

As violent as it is, Raze is refreshing.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 16, 2014
Raze is strong stuff, but also briskly paced and interested in the psychological ramifications of such unrelenting brutality.

For an exploitation movie about girls beating each other to death, 'Raze' doesn't want you to have a lot of fun.

Fight Club looks tame and rather cheery compared to the hellish scenario Raze thrusts Bell and a number of other warrior women into.

If "Raze" had been released in 1975, Quentin Tarantino would never shut up about it.

The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

"Raze" is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film.
January 9, 2014
If you can stand to watch this movie -- a big if -- there is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more.
January 9, 2014
The entertainment value of the violence trumps most of the larger meaning, and the film exploits its characters just as they do their prisoners.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 9, 2014
There's enough craft and intelligence at work here that you can't dismiss "Raze" as meaningless sadism, but not nearly enough to make it worth the unpleasantness of actually watching it.
January 9, 2014
This ugly, dull and idiotic actioner doesn't know if it wants be fun or grim. It winds up simply being deplorable exploitation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 9, 2014
A brain-dead exploitation flick in which barefoot, white-tank-top-clad women beat each other to death.

January 9, 2014
This brutally monotonous actioner centers around an all-female fight-to-the-death contest, but viewers of either gender may find themselves dying of boredom.
