Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This painstakingly paced thriller displays an intensity of purpose that makes it impossible to dismiss as well-executed trash.
Fresh: What makes Brawl in Cell Block 99 work so well isn't the violence, however, but Vaughn.
Fresh: It's the rare movie that truly evokes the grindhouse '70s, because it means everything it's doing. It's exploitation made with vicious sincerity.
Fresh: Zahler's screenplay is driven by a solid central character and dialogue that might have made Elmore Leonard sit up straight.
Vin is the man
Serious acting from vinny
Not for those with a weak stomach
Thankfully, I do not have a weak stomach, so I enjoyed the ever loving snot out of this flick. It starts off a little odd, but once it gets going and you know what kind of movie it is, you don't mind. Bone Tomahawk was an excellent western, and this film is just about as far away from that film as possible. Looks like Zahler is going to be a creative chameleon. His skill evoke the work of auteur directors of decades past. We need more people like that in the directors chair.
