As violent as it is, Raze is refreshing.

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.

"Raze" is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film.

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.

Girl fight! If that phrase makes your pulse quicken, Raze may be the movie for you. Or, it may cure you forever of the desire to see women growl, bite, and brawl.

A genre film that literally pulls no punches that will thrill fans of Tarantino and Rodriguez's recent revenge movies-- true "grindhouse" through and through.

It is rare starring role for Zoe Bell, and she certainly has the physical presence to more than hold her own.

Blew me out of seat from the first blood drenched bone crunching five minutes.

Violent beyond belief, bloody and yet a bloody-good time, Raze is a fun one for fans of hard action and well-choreographed bare-knuckle fight scenes.

Raising hell, bashing in skulls, and showing no mercy, RAZE is the ultimate midnight movie.

The thrill of seeing women beat the snot out of each other is about all that Raze offers, though for a lean, efficient 83-minute genre picture like this, that turns out to be just enough.

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.

The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten.
