I have read the book, and it was enthralling. Edward Norton as director, writter, and actor means something amazing will be happening.
Well made and beautifully acted, yet not my cup of tea. The plot seemed obsolete; hardly a single thing happened, and the writers danced around racism-- dipping their toes-- but never submerged into the ever-present subject. It was disappointing. Yet Freeman saved the day and made the entire deal watchable.
Interesting concept, but spends too much time on the exposition and not nearly enough time building tension.
The performances (notably a pre-fame Michael Fassbender) make this film worthy of the praise it has come to swelter in; besides this, there are the completely and maddeningly regular undertones of a "look-at-your-generation" shocker flick. Within the plot, James Watkin's directorial style and the almost ominously good cast were the seeds of a well above average horror film, but instead we were given this "bloody struggle for survival" with a very monotone struggle for my eyes to stay open during the climactic sequences and the entire resolution.
Highly suggested for any horror fan, but not a cup of tea all film lovers would like to sip from. Still worth it for Fassbender's performance and-- because I'm a teenage girl, I can say this without embarrassment-- his really fantastic abs and perfectly charming (yet still very down-to-earth) good looks.
