Yes... and yes!!! You need to believe all the positive reviews! I have a huge grin taking up my whole face right now! That was fo-real! Whoa! powerful, powerful stuff. I was so skeptical to see what I thought was going to be a crap movie. Luckily I decided to believe the few that stood by this movie.
You have to see it. omg. Yes the effects could have been a tad and I mean a tiny bit better, but ho-boy that does not take away from the movie. though, this is a one time time watch. Do not skip it!
I was gripped. Yes it was a little slow but then it got amazing. I for one agree with the smooth build up. It was very fluffy vacation get-away with good friends, good times, then bam! After all, these crazy disasters usually strike without warning. I understand Eli Roth had something to do with the film and people say he was responsible for most of the gore, but wait a minute, the gore and tragedy are nowhere near this fluffy and nice in real life. I liked that Eli (if he was responsible for adding the realism) had sense to show us the real deal.
I really love how this movie shows us how fragile our civility is and how quickly it goes out the window and 'man' reverts back to its gorilla-cave-man true selves. I used to be a gov conspiracist and all that - down with corruption. But I'm damn opened arm to silly lies and deceptions when there's a choice between that and situations like in this movie. Once order is lost for just a few minutes, all hell breaks loose and this movie showed that flawlessly.
Rape and murder is the first thing on the menu. People are selfish and only wish to help themselves or to harm others.. without continuing the rant, I'll just say that it really puts a lot of things in perspective. As for the movie - stop reading this and go watch it, trust me! and don't skip ahead like some people suggest, the movie builds up and connects you to all the characters in just enough time that right when you say: okay enough partying, things are going well, I get it - bam! The movie kicks off. and the ending was perfect! beginning to end I had a hell of a ride and I'm so happy I saw this movie.
All I have to say is, when hell breaks loose, arm-up. A metal pipe or firearm will be more valuable than a med-kit. And thats a very sad fact that I hate to state.
