    Can we please talk about the ELEPHANT in the room? Okay, reviewers said the acting and words were pretty cliche..eh, these are inmates..they usually don't speak eloquently. And "boring?" Definitely not, unless your a Sociopath. Great directing, great acting, great raw video footage and I liked the interview segments in between disgustingness. I love scary movies, I love drama. This Movie Was Shockingly Beyond Gross. It will stick with you for days after And Guys. Really? Is this how you really are? Reviewers acting so casual about the fact that a man sticking his penis in a man's ASS that he so called hates, as what an excuse? Is this what men secretly want to do? I only see women seeing this as the most vile movie they have ever seen, here. Peter character was shocked when it got sexual. Yes what he did was awful enough. Just when you think this poor kid has had way more than enough .there is something more. This movie makes men look like animals. Worse. I looked it all up. It's all true. It happened. I would seriously like to know why men pretend that other men's hairy asses digust them. Obviously not too much.

    My god how did I miss this. Uwe Boll apparently made his red dragon if u know what I mean. This is one of the most realistic, claustrophobic, disturbing, and emotionally charged films ive ever seen. You have to see this. Perfectly shot for the material, wonderfully acted with a hauntingly subtle score. This is the best Edward Furlong has been since American history X. Wow.

    Soulless drama with a lacking story, and poor cast, Stoic is a bland film that really has no point. The intentions to create a serious drama are wasted due to the visceral quality that the film possesses. The cast here are terrible, and the film takes on a poorly made for TV feel, that just doesn't feel right. Stoic however is not made for TV, it just feels that way. This is one of the few more serious films by director Uwe Boll, and although he tried his best at making an effective drama, the film is purely a waste due to the fact that the film's plot feels stitches together within an hour or so. Boll is notorious in making bad films, but at times he has made good films. However Stoic, although a step in the right direction, doesn't deliver anything worthwhile for viewers. As you watch Stoic, you realize how bleak it really is, and how depressing the finished product is. Uwe Boll fails at delivering a good drama, and the cast really don't stand out here. Stoic is a train wreck by a director who clearly can't grasp at making an effective genre picture. Don't go into this one expecting a great film, you'll be disappointed. Boll would make a few better films, but Stoic isn't one of them. However, it does show that is willing to venture into more dramatic territory, which is good because all of his video game adaptations are horrible. Watch a different film if you want a better drama. Stoic is one of those films that have redeeming aspects to make it a truly engaging film going experience.

    Wow. This is terrible, brutal, and unimaginable. How much of it is based on facts, I don't know but it may be worth looking into. If it did happen this way, it never, ever should have. If it was the director's intent to make me feel horrified, he has succeeded. This is quite disturbing.

    Stagey...but would anyone WANT to see it on stage? It's not quite torture porn, not quite theatre, not quite anything but an increasingly watchable, increasingly unbearable narrative with purpose.

    It was all right. I love violent torture films, but this one just got boring after a while.

    Four Stars: Alongside Seed, Stoic ranks as a surprisingly solid film by otherwise retched filmmaker Uwe Boll. The film opens with an inmate being discovered hanging in his cell and then proceeds as a series of flashbacks instigated by the interrogations of his cellmates, who ended up playing more than minor role in his death. While Stoic mainly uses the supposedly true story for exploitative purposes, it still manages to somewhat provocatively explore the effect of incarceration upon the ethics and identity of convicts. In particular, Stoic explores how ethical judgment disappears in the face of peer pressure and how environment affects ethical decision-making. Brutalizing, tough-to-watch, and somewhat provocative, Stoic does not quite achieve the level of sophistication that it aims for (because it is Uwe Boll), but it still manages to be a disturbing yet somewhat insightful piece of exploitation cinema.

    Boll sure knows how to film brutality. Good job, I guess. Probably better than his video game movies but I can happily state I've never seen one. Perhaps needed more zombies, or Tara Reid as an prison shrink.

    It had potential and was definitely disturbing, but poor writing and lazy directing kept this from being anything more than low-budget exploitation. Uwe Boll always finds a way to take mediocrity to the extreme.
