The story sees three wealthy, middle-aged CEOs - all married family men - get together for their annual hunting game in a desert canyon. It's a way for them to let off steam and affirm their manhood with guns. But this time, one of them has come along with his young mistress, who quickly arouses the interest of the two others. Things get out of hand and she is left for dead in the middle of this arid hell. However, the young woman is very much alive, and the hunting game turns into a ruthless manhunt.Written by
Essentially, "Revenge" is nothing more than "I Spit On Your Grave IV." A bunch of bad guys get their comeuppance from a young lady seeking revenge. This film, though, had more blood in it than a Midwest slaughter house at Chrismastime. Boy, was it gory.
And unbelievable. There are some things you'll see that just wouldn't pan out in real life, but this is the movies, right? Where the unbelievable happens? Like the SONY logo says: Make. Believe.
I believe I saw the unrated version. If it wasn't then I guess the R rated one left all the nasty bits intact, which is surprising because censor boards have been known to blacklist films with this much violence. If you're a fan of L'Intereur, I Spit On Your Grave, Ichi The Killer, Martyrs, Irreversible, etc., you won't be disappointed.
