Rrrrr...
27 January 2014 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Who doesn't like a decent, bare-fist (and kicks and what have you) cat fight? However the fights in this brutal film do not end at KOs, you guessed it. The ladies have to fight each other till the very end. There is however some hair pulling/tearing.

The film has some very attractive women going at each other and not Dwayne Johnson and Dutch from 'Predator, 1987' so yes, it's sorta like a feminist film saying bad things about feminism.

If you ever liked or still like the B films from the Sixties' films like, 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)' that exploit the then newly invented 'emancipation', you will like 'Raze'. More films for the sake of commonality would be 'Martyrs, (2010)' and '13, 2008'.

Perhaps my nose will be be pretty close to the grindstone if I say the action sequences in the film (highly realistic and pretty close to Fincher's swing at us back in 1999) reminded me of Tarantino's much disliked Grindhouse, 2007.

I liked Snake Plisskin as the maniac driver with a killer of a muscle ride (Death Proof, 2007) and also the treatment of 'Grindhouse' - (Planet Terror is a favorite). Plus Zoe Bell, the lead actor in this film started her career as an actress in 'Death Proof'. Before Tarantino offered her the role, she was a stunt double at Hollywood. She is ferocious in this film, and fights with calculated rage. Watch out for the 'Cody vs. Phoebe' sequence, it does not have Sabrina (Bell), but watch it closely for reasons only film lovers would appreciate.

The plot is paper thin, only a handful of dialogue make you feel, however the direction is fast and the pace quite intense. No wonder they call it a 'pacemaker'. Bad Joke, however apt for this review. For you see, this film belongs to a quite peculiar and a risqué genre: 'kill stranger and win freedom'. A genre made popular by J. D. Salinger and then Kinji Fukasaku made the mother of them all in 2000.

Also watch out for the cameos.

I liked it, it was entertaining, if I may.
