Critic Reviews for The Aggression Scale
Pits "Straw Dogs" against "Home Alone," if Kevin were a potential serial killer, and the thieves murderers.
'A satisfactory but straightforward dabbling in psycho killer hero worship.'
The Aggression Scale feels like a cult classic in the making and pretty much has "midnight movie" written all over it.
Audience Reviews for The Aggression Scale
I loved this movie. It's one of those that I can watch over and over again. A cool take on the "you stole from me" story. Really good acting all around. Awesome, brutal action from the opening. The cinematography is great. This is proof point that a great movie can be made regardless of the budget. This is my favorite film from director Steven C. Miller and my favorite from 2012. I highly recommend this one!
I really hate when they make movies like this one, because there is absolutely no point to the whole thing. If I wanted to see a bunch of people running around, shooting at each other, while hardly saying a word, I'd watch a John Wayne movie. The Aggression Scale is a pointless film about a mob boss, who sends his team to close some unfinished business. Mr. Bellavance (Ray Wise) doesn't want any witnesses and his team goes on a killing spree. Everything is going as planned, until they find a family whose children decide to fight back. This could have been a darker version of Home Alone or even something similar to Die Hard with kids, but it wasn't. The lead character, played by Ryan Hartwig, doesn't say a word through the entire film. No cute catch phrase, nothing special at the end, not a single word, but even that was preferable to the performance of Fabianne Therese. The whole movie this girl is whining, crying, and making weird noises, it really was enough to drive a person insane. As I said earlier, there really is no point to this film and there is no reason to watch it either. The story is thin and the film is basically an hour and a half of people running around shooting at each other. The Aggression Scale represents the worst Hollywood has to offer and it's mind boggling that a company would even agree to make something as bad as this.
