"Cockfights are pro-rooster because there's always one left standing". Nevertheless a brutal n visually engaging film.
Saw this recently on a pirated dvd. The trailer was very captivating, especially the cinematography. After seeing almost all the rape/revenge thriller n even the low budget trash, the one thing which piqued my interest about this film is its settings.
This film is visually very engaging.
Most of the violent scenes are way too over the top n some scenes r plain unbelievable. Some may complain about the girl being a female Rambo.
Some may jus laugh out loud n get entertained. In one lol scene a male runs naked a la American Psycho.
The film does contain tons n tons of blood n violent scenes too.
Branch piercing in the guts, broken glass in the sole of a foot, knife in an eye socket, etc. Lots of brutal gun shots too.
Sexy & Sickening
Relentlessly brutal and radiating with style, Revenge is a movie that hauls its audience through a ride almost too extreme to handle. The story may be basic and rather predictable but it is rich with symbolism and vibrant themes. Meanwhile, the stylistic imagery and vivid flow of the movie raise the experience to a highly memorable level. Likewise, the entire cast (lead by Matilda Lutz) strikes the difficult balance of authenticity and exaggeration. Overall, the vision of Coralie Fargeat (writer/director) is clear.
Whether you like exotic cinematic moments that artfully build connection or you prefer breakneck action that will have you at the edge of your seat, Revenge is a film that flawlessly switches gears and drowns its viewers in its vile situations. Some may call Revenge too flashy for its own good but those viewers are missing the point. Among other messages, Revenge is about the union between beauty & ugliness which it packs together into a powerful punch. Sexy and sickening, if you're ready for the wicked, check out Revenge.
Production Design: 7/10
Overall Score: 8.2/10

Violence Begets Violence...Feminism Triggers...Just watch the film...
Skimming some of these reviews, I couldn't resist asking the question: "What did you expect?" to the ones complaining and panning a "revenge" film...
A revenge film is a niche/off-genre and is often times, going back to the early cinema, can feed off controversial themes. This film is fun ride in exploitation. Take your feminism triggers elsewhere...it was directed by a woman and as violent as it is, she is doing what many 80's slasher films set the table for. Some reviewers actually can't settle down enough to realize it's an anti-rape film, a spin on anti-misogynistic themes, after a pretty vile table setting in the first act.
Some came for plots, writing and realism...IT'S AN EXPLOITATION HORROR FILM FOR CHRISTS SAKES. While it's exploiting, some of these folks forgot about checking their brains at the door and just watching. It ends up taking a turn that is more than satisfactory. Violence begets violence. There is no pretense that gives one a idea that this wouldn't be violent, much like I Spit on Your Grave (1978) was before it. Jen somehow manages to outbadass the original "Jen" from the aforementioned 70's slasher/exploitation classic.
The cinematography and tense score are nothing short of brilliant in developing the film and the gore is nothing short of classic upgraded b-movie classic...Minimalistic but somehow doesn't feel like it. Would watch again.
