    Put this off for a decade. This loses a few points for a weak supporting cast and overall “sheen” that make it feel a bit too sanitary.

    That said, THIS MOVIE RIPS. Aside from that aforementioned sheen, this movie is fucking grimy. The gore is excellent, the scares are scary and the whole thing moves forward at a good pace. 

    One could rightfully argue that this reboot doesn’t need to exist, but I sure am glad it does.

    I sat on this so I could give it a fair review. Now it’s a week later and I don’t remember much of it at all. That says it all, right?

    Every bit as bad as people say it is. Half a star for the fact that the director went to jail over this movie and another half star for the kickass nu-metal soundtrack.

    This series is so unique. This is probably my favorite, though I’ve never seen 4. The fights here are insane and each has its own reason to watch. The prison labor training montage is ridiculous. Florentine does that thing where a footstep or a mop hitting a floor has the same impact as a punch shattering a jawbone and I’m here for it. There’s something weirdly French about the way he shoots closeups. Maybe I’m crazy.

    Also, if you take a shot every time someone’s bloody mouth guard is knocked out in slow motion, you will die!
