I rented the movie because the warnings on the cover (and I agree that this movie should not be watched by juveniles). In my opinion, the warnings may have overstated the violent nature of the movie (in comparison with other Hollywood action movies), but it certainly had its perverted aspects, of which I will not detail here.
The movie was quite interesting from start to finish; I was glued to my seat. The worst aspect, however, was the demon suit. It looked too much like a costume (i.e., in Hollywood these days, they attempt to make the costumes more realistic -- take a look at the current "Planet of the Apes"). Although I am not that familiar with the Faust legends, the demon suit was perhaps not necessary, in my opinion.
All in all, I liked it; the story was quite interesting. I enjoy supernatural movies, and this one certainly fit the bill.
