No matter the potency of Lars' Peruvian cannabis, not enough was administered to Amy's corpse to inebriate the entire cannibal tribe after she is cooked. Also the right amount of cannabis would not of caused the watch platform tribesman to pass off the platform considering he had not ingested a single piece of her. See more »

Intense, effective, yet I still can't recommend it to anyone
30 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I'll get right to the point. The movie is well done, and highly effective at creating tension and instilling fear in the viewers. Even though there are parts that look and feel fake, even cheesy.

I'm assuming most of you reading this is familiar with Eli Roth, or at least the violent nature of this film. Yes, it's violent. You want carnage, you want gore, it's got it. You cannot see this if you have a weak stomach, I'm telling you straight. It's not loaded with it, but a few scenes are very over-the-top and a few are even terribly realistic. I'm used to this sort of material and still I had to look away during two scenes.

With that out of the way, let's hit some other elements. The acting teeter-totters, some times it works, sometimes it doesn't. But I'm talking about the actual actors, the fact that the villagers are all authentic tribesmen and women, is one of the really cool things about this film. At times it almost feels like a documentary. The plot, basic. And from the start, you get an idea of what Eli Roth thinks about protesters and college students and their tendency to jump aboard the "causes-ship" to support their entitlement. This film is a message, but it's also a way to vicariously blow out some steam.

Movie's a bit predictable, camera's too shaky, and there are times I felt like Eli Roth was trying too hard to stir up audiences' anger towards his characters, but all in all it's a well done movie and CAN be enjoyable, if you can stomach it and if you understand that it's just a movie. I personally felt it was too weak and where it wasn't, it was too strong. There wasn't really an in-between.

If anybody is planning on seeing this, and are not used to extreme graphic content, I suggest skipping this one.
