Kill or be killed? What a thought provoking question.
Wowee what a film, from the first minute I was hooked, totally glued to the screen. A cop thriller that isn't afraid to hold back, beware that this movie is gritty, gruesome and very graphic. A lot of reviews compare this to movies such as Saw and Se7en and I can certainly see similarities, particularly with Saw but this is so much more than a torture porn franchise which has no end.
The story is about a killer committing gruesome murders against the gangs in new York, with each new body there is a carving etched into the skin "wDeltaz", the police soon find out that the person they are hunting is someone they are already familiar with. Movies as good as this don't come along very often, the smart script, the acting, the thought provoking subject matter, the exquisite way the director handles the murder scenes to not just make them cheesy horror movie killings is fantastic.
Melissa George and Stellan Skarsgard work well together, they both have a great screen relationship, I particularly liked Melissa's character, a woman who at first seems fragile and not a very brave cop but who soon becomes tough as nails, Melissa George is a very fine actress and it's great to see her do something very different. Also, Sally Hawkins stands out once again as a drug addict mother who commits the unspeakable, she's just stellar.
When you find out who the killer is and why they're doing these horrible things, that's when you'll really start to question everything. This movie is definitely worth seeing, it will spark a talk afterwards and will certainly leave an impression, a brutal but brilliant revenge thriller.
