Has Moments, But Could've Been So Much Better
22 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Video Violence has some hilarious scenes and a great premise, but it largely fails to deliver. Although a lot of enthusiasm clearly went into it, it suffers from significant problems with its pacing and writing. However, it benefits from some energetic performances.

The film consists of an episode of a new show by Howard and Eli, murderers who like to broadcast their killings, and tapes of killings sent in. The film does not have a plot so much as it goes from one kill scene to another. This is not all bad, as there are some interesting kills.

The problem is that the film also have a large amount of filler to get it up to barely feature length. Some of the murders drag out with too much dialogue, and not very good dialogue at that. The only thing that keeps this from a lower score is the enthusiasm of some of the performers, particularly the guys who play Howard and Eli. They know not to take this too seriously and ham it up.
