I saw this movie and it was not bad at all, but in the same time I wasn't that happy because the original Funny Games was better than this one.
I have seen the original Funny Games a few days ago, but this will make an interesting comparison for film aficionados around the world, much like the idea of seeing both Exorcist prequels. You see Michael Haneke is the director of both films, one made in Austria in 1997, and the other due for release this year which received a full Hollywood treatment including big name stars. I was lucky enough to see the film at the Glasgow Film Festival, and was surprised at what I experienced.
Funny Games (U.S.) is not an enjoyable film to watch, and it's not meant to be. This is an uncomfortable and difficult experience that turns the tables on the audience a number of times and puts the spotlight on them. The film wants us to take responsibility for the violence on screen and not feel detached from it, and it does a good job.
