Are you having fun?
Am I the only one having a problem with this?
I don't know, I guess I'm used to it.

I almost was not going to see this movie because it was giving such a bad rating by so many.
I don't know why though. I watched the movie and it was very very good.
It had a great story line that was believable and made it more creepy. When something exciting was not happening it had great visuals of Brazil. It had some intense scenes also. It also had a lot of shocking parts u would not expect. I really liked this movie. Better then hostel definitely.
It shouldn't have a bad rating. At least should have a 7 or 8. Worth watching.
