At the point when, in an attempt to be quirky or reverent, one of the killers sits down and starts playing the banjo while another of them tortures one of their captives, I nearly threw my TV out of the window. It was bad enough that what had come in the 45 minutes before that point was poorly written, poorly acted, and just plain sucky, but a character sitting and merrily play the banjo while they ripped-off the acupuncture scene from Audition was just painful to watch.
|What is he even doing?|
The psychopathic geeks even try to kill the one cool kid who stuck up for them and was nice to them... he even got in a fight for their honor, and yet they decide he's expendable too. At least he survives. He was the only one in the movie that didn't suck.
"I'm not going to the party, I like, don't feel good and stuff."
"You have to go. All you need is some alcohol and some sex!"
"Fuck yeah, bitch! Woo, party!"
"We're so hot!"
"You know it bitch!"
I'm paraphrasing, but that's pretty close to how one scene went down. Really.
It's all just so cliche and cheesy... the kids parents all either neglect, ignore, or fail to connect with their children which prompts them to withdraw into their own dark loneliness and hatch a violent revenge plan... I'm sure the filmmakers made this movie as a cautionary tale, but to me it came off more as a "Yeah, kill the cool kids!" thing, which just felt wrong. And even worse, stupid.
|Good try ladies, but no go.|
The Final did have some crazy hot chicks in it though...
