Great film for the uneducated, those who can't read and snuff enthusiasts.
13 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great film for the uneducated and those who can't read. Many reviews here reflect the first one I read that said I don't understand why people say this film is sick. "THAT'S THE WHOLE POINT!!! This film is REAL LIFE, not some footage that the film makers have created. Of course its sick, this is a film showing that the death penalty is barbaric and wrong by using images that say just that." Rubbish! Do you need to see people decapitated to learn that is practiced as a form of capital punishment? Do you need to see someone being stoned to death to realize that it is horrible? Did you know that is still common in the Middle East? If not, you can read a book or two and learn much more about the subject. In fact, you can learn more from a 2 page article tha you can from this movie.

There are some things that can't be unseen and it's not healthy to watch death after death. Snuff enthusiasts might like this but all footage is heavily edited, grainy and black and white.

Read a book like 'The Death Penalty: A Worldwide Perspective' or a similar book or watch The Stoning of Soraya M. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1277737/ Watching movies like this is just as unhealthy as getting into porn. Don't let your curiosity get the better of you.
