I have been wanting to see this for a long time. Two days before I actually watched the movie I found out that it was based on the short story by Clive Barker. Once I heard that I had to see it as soon as possible, I have not read the short story yet, but I will in the near future. After viewing the film I was very happy with the story line, suspense and the gore. But at the same time there was a few things that I was disappointed with.
The film has a great story line it follows a photographer played by Bradley Cooper who is taking pictures around New York and eventually comes across a man named Mahogony played by Vinnie Jones who he suspects is the subway train butcher, and finds out that he is right and tries to stop him.
What I really liked was that during a few occasions when Mahogony is killing someone, it is shown through the victims point of view, that kind of made my heart pound because you can almost feel what the person is feeling. Even though some of the killings are really brutal and gory, I was really disappointed at a few points because a lot of the blood that was used in the film was CGI and you can tell that some of the killings were fake, but at the same time there were a lot of killings that looked realistic and really grossed me out.
Another thing that I really loved was that Vinnie Jones did a fantastic acting job in this film, even though he had no dialogue, he really proved that you don't need to say big long monologues to pull off a good acting job.
In my opinion this film is good but not great, I think there could have been a few things that could have made it a lot better, i'm not going to go into the plot to much because you really need to sit down and watch it. It's one of those movies that you either like it or you don't, but its worth to sit down and watch, especially if you love movies with lots of gore.
