I saw it last week and there isnt that much Violence in the movie, nothing gory at all.
Its a good movie but it seems very long for a short movie, it seems to me that the movie could have been a 30-40min short movie and still had the same impact, they seem to have stretched the movie over 96min.
There are some sexual parts but nothing graphic at all, i can't unserstand why it had an 18 rating, it had a few bloody-ish parts but nothing over the top at all. (imo)
The trailer looked great but the film itself is very disappointing. The plot is amateurish to say the least; in fact I would go as far as saying it was childish. The acting is ok at best but the direction is useless. Plus it has the 2 most cringeworthy and poorly executed sex scenes I have witnessed since Eminem's effort in 8 mile (which was also crap). People were squirming in their seats, embarrassed for the poor actors who had to "do it". My advice would be to avoid this move, you will be disappointed, especially if you are expecting this to be a good film...
Just thought I'd resurrect this thread as I finally got round to seeing this last night!
I was expecting it to be good and I wasn't disappointed, it really is an excellent film and would recommend it to anyone who likes their films intelligent and thought provoking.
The story is simple and slow paced, the acting is excellent, both Viggo Mortensen and Maria Bello stand out in and all round good cast. Anyone expecting an action packed movie will be disappointed, yes there is violence but it is sporadic and swift , however it is bloody and 'full on' without being gratuitous or exploitative.
One of the best films I've seen this year! If you fancy an intelligent movie that looks at the affects violence has on people and their families go see.
