Nurse 3D (2013)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
Paz De La Huerta CAN NOT act. It was like watching someone run their fingernails across a chalkboard. Yes, it was that bad. Save yourself some money, more importantly, save yourselves the hour and a half of your life that you'll never get back. Stay away, stay very far away.....
Is Paz de la Huerta going to win any Academy awards any time soon? Hell no she's not, but this isn't a movie in which you are expected to suspend disbelief any more than being on a roller coaster is trying to make you feel like you're driving on the freeway. This is over the top mayhem with hearty helpings of sex, gore and dark humor. For me her acting (and perhaps especially her voice over work) elevated the movie beyond what it would have been with a "good" actress. Frankly I'm not even sure much acting was required, as those familiar with Paz's real- life adventures might agree.
The rest of the cast is decent with Katrina Bowden bringing the requisite wide-eyed innocence about to be shattered, and Judd Nelson doing his best creepy shaggy mustache. But Paz and the smart, brisk writing are what breathes life into Nurse. And the gratuitous T&A certainly didn't hurt my enjoyment either.
Even so, if grindhouse is your ballet, you probably want to skip this.
The first thing I noticed is Paz de la Huerta who plays the main character Abby Russell. Probably the worst acting I have ever seen. I have seen better acting in commercials and soap operas. Her voice was the most irritating. Not helped at all by the terrible script. I had no idea who she was but I looked her up thinking it must be her first movie, but apparently she has 48 credits. She has no emotion, resting bitch face and bad delivery of lines and body language. I can say she was likely hired because of her body and willingness to appear naked in the film.
Katrina Bowden who plays a nurse Danni, has much better acting skills and would have made a much better lead.
Okay so the movie - the part I watched anyway
Abby Russell is a nurse that 'disguises' herself as a slut and goes out to bars and clubs wearing barely anything and waits for married men to hit on her. Of course a married man does. She 'ALWAYS' gives them a chance to change their mind. He doesn't and then the movie starts.
We then discover she is more interested in woman than men. We find this out during a scene at a nightclub that was the most nauseating to watch. The lights flashed across the screen, if I had epilepsy I would have had a fit. Then we see her prance around naked at her house and walked unnaturally as if she was strutting on a runway. (You know she is a bad actress, when she can't even walk naturally).
Then I turned the TV off.
"Nurse" is a horror movie with one of the awfullest lead actresses that I have ever seen. Paz de la Huerta seems to have speech problem and is neither beautiful nor sexy or funny and her nudity is depressing. Douglas Aarniokoski directs the movie with heavy hand and scenes that should be funny to relief the tension do not work. Last but not the least, the story is terrible. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
As for the film goes yes there's not much originality behind the story, but what horror film is now a days? I personally enjoyed this film due to the ridiculously funny dialogue and watching Paz be a crazy obsessive murdering bitch. There was enough blood to satisfy me and yes there's tons of nudity, but hardly any graphic sex scenes so I don't get why some are calling this soft core porn.
The ending climax was pretty great in my opinion because it was filled with constant bloody deaths and a big cat fight that kept me thrilled. I believe this film is worth checking out for any horror fan. It was a fun erotic horror thriller and it defiantly entertained the hell out of me.
When newly qualified nurse Danni is hired to work in the hospital, Abby is instantly drawn to Danni, but she has a boyfriend and does not suspect the intentions of her friend. Abby believes that if she kills Danni's stepfather, Dr. Larry Cook, she will get to live with her.
But soon Danni suspects that Abby has murdered her stepfather and moves away from her. When the new HR manager arrives at the hospital, she is amazed at the resemblance of Abby with a woman named Sarah Price.
Danni investigates Sarah and discloses dark secrets from the past of Abby.....
Well this film clears the question that all feminists have been asking since the sixties, yes, all men are abhorrent, insufferable pieces of work......even in flashbacks. And the ones who are not completely disregarding women as pleasure things, are simply too idiotic for there own good.
This complete waste of a film depicts almost every make character as some sort of sexual predator, and only one wooden actress can save the day.
You can that the film has gone for the feel of eighties exploitation movies like Angel, Savage Streets, and Ms. 45, but whereas those films had a shocking, almost unwatchable narrative in places, this thinks that the added dimension and extra gore will make up for its shortcomings..........it only enhances them.
So by day, the titular character stalks her work colleagues,who wear the most ridiculous nurses uniforms I've ever seen, and by night, goes out of her way to right the wrongs of adulterous men.
It's terrible in every sense, acting is woeful, Nelson, Donovan, and Turner should be ashamed of themselves, and it's truly offensive to almost every culture, sexuality, or anything with a beating heart to be honest.
Terrible, offensive poison.
