Storyline

An ice cold tale of misguided ambition and savage revenge. Set in the bowels of an iconic derelict Los Angeles high-rise, we follow Lauren and her real-estate investing fiancé as they discover first hand what happens when a madman leads not with emotion, but rather chilling rationality. The Man in question brings a heaping helping of sanity and jet-black humor to the crazy table. The result is a wonderfully off-kilter horror/thriller that never goes where we expect, but rather draws the audience deeper into a surprising world that has dark corners even in the brightest rooms.

An Ice Cold Tale Of Misguided Ambition And Savage Revenge
18 November 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

"The Brazen Bull" is a story about revenge and the victims of it. Michael Madsen delivers in ass kicking form as the sleazy, psychotic, homicidal whacko only few can seem natural at doing. Luckily for this film, Madsen carries the load, making up for the flat out of place performance by David Fletcher. Not once could I believe that he was believable in the role he was cast in. Big props to the cast(most notably Jennifer Tisdale) for getting through multiple scenes with him. The gore was good. Great cinematography from Jayson Crothers and equally as great direction from Douglas Elford Argent. Together they created a tense, hostile world in a creepy secluded location ala the "Saw" series. If you're a fan of Madsen's work, or even if you're a fan of film psychos in general, I'd definitely recommend "The Brazen Bull".
