Sub-Genre- Serial Killer
In Attendance- Me...
What's it about?- A veteran detective and his hot piece of tail newbie partner (Mmmmelissa George!), are out to find a clever serial killer who has a deep message to share with everyone. The deep, dark and brooding inner city streets are perfect for this remake of Se7en... Hold on, this isn't a remake...
Moving on, the killer sets up a series of very clever "Will you kill your loved one to save your own pathetic life?" scenarios, and it gets pretty nasty. Jigsaw gets all feminine this time out... wait a minute... this isn't Saw XXI...
Anyways, someone is out to get some payback for a gang rape gone wrong (is it ever right?), and also finds time to do plenty of mathematical equations along the way. I could easily make a pi joke that would fit perfectly here, but I digress. Ok, I lied:
The dark inner city, inventive horror, brooding cop vs. eager cop, "this is a lot like that other movie" stuff rolls along, and delivers some hot "nail hammered under fingernail" action. I wont ruin the ending here, but being gay doesn't mean you should lose your wiener. Does no one believe in love anymore?; Hot, sweaty, ghetto fabulous, man on man love?
The Good- A decent flick, although it is painted with shades of Se7en, Saw and a few other Torture horror flicks. It's definitely not in ripoff territory though, and it delivers some nice moments throughout.
The overall story is a good one, and the movie doesn't aim to shove the all too popular surprise twist down your throat at the end, all though there is a small one.
Stellan Skarsgård rules as always; what a great actor he is.
Melissa George is hot as always, in yet another horror flick. God I love her... Now if she'd only get naked.
The Bad- It's nothing we haven't seen before; Melissa George's character is a little to pouty and useless here.
The Downright Horrendous- What is with all of the anger towards penis's in horror movies lately!?!?!?
The Gory- A fairly disturbing gang rape flashback, some painful to watch torture moments, and the disturbing actions of a bad mommy are enough to make the average viewer cringe.
What did we learn?- Crack whores make terrible mothers. Gay interracial love never works.
Rating- C+ Decent enough, and worth catching if you get the Chance. Melissa George is always nice to see on screen anyways.
