Karl the Butcher vs Axe (2010)

* (out of 4)

The fourth film in the series has Karl The Butcher (Andreas Schnaas) going up against a female serial killer (Timo Rose).

KARL THE BUTCHER VS AXE was the fourth film in the VIOLENT $HIT series. I'm going to guess if you liked the first three then you'll probably enjoy this one but, to be honest, I only somewhat liked the second and the rest I really didn't care for. This film here appears to have hard a somewhat larger budget, although shooting digital at least gave the picture a better, more professional look.

There's really nothing "good" going on here outside of the gore but even this has been somewhat pulled back from the previous three films. Yes, there are all sorts of be-headings and various forms of violence but it just doesn't have the same punch. It's at least mildly entertaining and there's no question that the gore is the only real thing going here. The Karl character isn't all that interesting here and his battle with Axe just isn't overly exciting to say the least.

The biggest problem I had with this film is the fact that there really wasn't much energy. The film doesn't really hold your attention and after a while you just get bored with everything going on.
