Trivia

Although the film is set in Majorca the sequence when the girls are in the cab on their way out is filmed on the Costa del Sol, as illustrated by the road sign for Belamadena and Torremuel. See more »

Goofs

The crew mention that the yacht is registered in Panama and therefore falls under Panamanian laws when in international waters, the port of registry on the aft of the yacht is visible, and it is mentioned as "Durban" which is in fact South Africa. The ship cannot therefore be Panamanian registered. See more »

What a waste of talent
8 May 2009 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Donkey Punch is more than competently directed, almost every aspect of it is superbly executed - save for the tiny matter called screenplay. The plot is so tired words cannot begin to describe it. There is not one event that cannot be foreseen from miles ahead by anyone who has seen more than two thriller movies in recent years.

The director is obviously very talented, and even the acting is above average compared to this type of fare (I'm looking at you My Bloody Valentine 3D with your silent movie-type overacting) but the plot is such a bore and there is a distinct lack of suspense throughout that instead of generating thrills it almost put me to sleep.

Any real chance of characterization sinks as soon as the characters begin to do awfully predictable and silly things, just for the sake of packing a punch to the audience - which in turn fails because everyone can see them coming.

And to think that British public funding is going to such stinking waste of material and talent is beyond comprehension. I am all for subsidizing mainstream films but Donkey Punch is a knockoff of dozens of movies we have seen, most of them better written.

Just a touch of originality would have elevated Donkey Punch to at least an average level, as it is now it is just not worth the time and investment. On the plus side: the soundtrack is awesome.
