Storyline

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.

Goofs

About 46m in, when Jen is knifing the eyes of Demitri, we are seeing Jen on the right (Demitri on the left) and using her right hand to make a first stab into the right eye of Demitri. She then pulls the knife out and makes a second stab, but this time into the LEFT EYE of Demetri. Then Demetri immediately falls backward into the water.

But as he falls, the knife is now sticking out from the RIGHT EYE of Demitri. See more »

Visually engaging.......
14 May 2018 | by s3276169See all my reviews

Generally speaking I dislike revenge style flicks. I Spit On Your Grave and its modern incantations were for me simply too gory and on a certain level, repulsive.

Revenge manages the gore factor by toning down the excesses of many of its counterparts. Its got its blood and guts but its not by the bucketful Equally, much as the key female protagonist might be out for her ounce of flesh, the approach is not overtly or creatively sadistic.

Balancing the violence of this film is a certain style and artistic flair. There's some real cleverness in the use of visuals. The ants creeping over a partly eaten apple is an interesting metaphor that hints at what's to come in the first quarter of the film. The clever transformation of the female lead from urbanised party goer to feral mud smeared gun toting wild woman, is handled with a certain care that shows in the final product.

Given this film is in one sense rather basic in terms of its story and narrative the fact I rate it quite highly is a testament to how effectively visuals and action have been married up to produce a really engaging experience. 7/10 from me.
