The mix of a fast pace, animated moments, and the always nuts Rourke makes for an entertaining flick

Mesmo com seu ótimo elenco, esta cópia sem personalidade de Vamos Nessa! e Réquiem para um Sonho é o exemplo perfeito da expressão 'muito estilo para pouco conteúdo'.
| Original Score: 2/5

Une bien mauvaise caricature.

Madly arranged in one ambivalent, entirely creative work that attempts not only to convey a feeling, but a sense of experience

More intent on giving us a day-in-the-life presentation of some speed freaks and their hijinks than actually telling us anything about them. Their actions are meaningless.

Like an ex-addict reminiscing over their days of dependence, it's dead behind the eyes: hollowed out.

Aims for the edge but eccentricity and excess take over and dominate, thus taking the rest of the film down with them.

The performances are astonishingly strong--edgy and kinetic, open and fearless.

A weird speed freak trip comedy that has all the trippers spinning out-of-control.

Inundated with trip-cam trickery that (rides) the ups and downs of the main character's drug buzzes, the film is nothing if not stylish, but falls short for lack of depth.

There's something endearing about Åkerlund and his cast's eagerness to appall.

Spun is mostly played for laughs, as evidenced by the broad style employed by the various actors.

Despite several fine performances, the anti-drug movie never hits whatever marks it was aiming for.

This debut feature from Swedish director Jonas Akerlund takes the audience on a wild ride with such squirmy authenticity that it leaves you feeling in need of a long shower.

It never quite convinces you this is anything but a fashion shoot.

The problem with this much disgust is that it has a leveling effect; after a while, you don't feel shocked or moved, or even dirty, just bored.

It's giving Spun too much credit to say it's all style and no substance.
