About the Movie

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: All the filmmakers seem interested in is the ugliness of the main Israeli characters, each of whom proves a virtuoso of violence.
Fresh: The filmmakers know just what our vulnerabilities are. ... But as we wince, they're laughing with us, not at us.
Fresh: Big Bad Wolves uses child abduction as tinder to spark both characters' and viewers' emotions, before asking us to examine the extremities of the reactions.
Fresh: The Middle Eastern setting adds a rich quality and the movie works as both a suspense flick and a vehicle to examine the ethics of justice. Some scenes get gruesome without warning, but the violence is always earned.

pretty dumb movie, can't believe tarantino gave it a thumbs up.
I have to admit, making a dry para-comedy about raped and beheaded little girls certainly takes some guts, and to that degrees this movie was entertaining, but the raving “professional” critics way oversold it. It’s by no means the “best picture of the year.” A daring and risky genre? Sure. “Brilliant?” Nah.
A more violent and interesting episode of Law and Order:SVU
I was wholeheartedly impressed by the filmmakers first movie, “Rabies”, so I eagerly anticipated their follow-up and I was not disappointed. What this movie lacks in any sympathy for the main characters it makes up for in sheer comedic genius. While some scenes are difficult to watch (when they describe the sadistic acts by the man accused ,for example), some were laugh out loud funny! It goes to show that not all Horror movies have to be filled with blood, gore and seriousness to really affect you. Ultimately, even when you realize how the movie will end, it does not make it any less difficult to accept. A thoroughly engrossing film.
