Goofs

In the flashback where the main character, as a youth, stole twenty dollars from the blind boy, a "new" twenty dollar bill (with the large face of Jackson) was used. That bill was introduced in 1998 and thus most likely would have not been in existence at the time of the supposed flashback. The movie was released and presumably set in 2008, and the protagonist was in his early 30's. See more »

Brilliant thriller
11 August 2011 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This movie is a movie that is a true gem in the rough. It tells the story of a man whom is kidnapped and tortured for the crimes of America in a whole but to prove a point at the same time. The acting was really flawless and real but the torture was just gut wrenching. Senseless is really about the lost of this mans senses but how many will he have taken from him or will there be any at all? Well by the title it is obvious but I didn't quite see the blatant of it while watching as you become so involved with the characters humiliation, loneliness, pain and suffering that you want it all to stop.

There are parts in the movie that get very disturbing and sad because you ask yourself "Is this really going to happen?". Not just that but then "Is this method really being used?". I can't imagine the pain in reality one would go through in what the protagonist did but it has to be out of this world. The story could have been developed more in particular parts such as a bit of the captors motive in specifically him and behind the scenes of where the main actor was confined. The story is deep and more than just a sight for blood lust and horror. Watch closely and listen to all that is being portrayed as it is important.

I really don't understand the voters at all on IMDb and Netflix but this movie should be seen for its morality and message of todays politics and such. Such that brings today's society in such uproar and battle. I am very much satisfied with what I have seen and give this movie a 8.5 out of 10. Not for kids or squeamish but a true piece of art.
