I appreciate what these other narrow-minded gore-snobs are saying about this entry's clever use of subtlety in favor of the unnecessarily excessive, graphic violence and gore that sometimes overextends itself, killing suspense and lending nothing to those overrated, boring sequels. Instead, this Hostel entry breaks the mold with well-timed gags, fake-outs, misdirection, and legitimate suspense. I can honestly say I didn't expect one thing that happened in the movie from the beginning. Every sharp turn kept the plot more interesting and the action more intense, and that more of the action took place outside the torture room was much more satisfying in my opinion. The gore and violence in the torture scenes and around Vegas is more than sufficient, and wickedly satisfying compared to the other, more disturbing and nasty torture sequences of the former films. There were a couple fun references in the movie, including an overall homage to "what would really happen in 'The Hangover'" that played out perfectly. I liked the characters, who were basically believable and surprisingly well acted. I like how the director played on the audience's stereotypes at certain times, and I would be very interested in seeing more of this production crew.
