Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: While Haneke is attacking our culture for being drawn to violent fare, he is also relishing in presenting it to us, in prolonged and detailed fashion.
Fresh: not what it appears to be on the surface.
Rotten: That this relentless barrage of psychological and physical torture is extremely well made and powerfully performed -- Watts hurls herself into her physically demanding role with heroic conviction -- somehow makes it worse.
Fresh: The performances are outstanding across the board. The direction and writing are masterful.
what a stinker
Contrived, boring and excrutiatingly devoid of wit. On a positive note, this movie perfectly demonstrates the mechanics of trully awful writing and film making. Buyer beware...
i saw this movie at the theatres and it's not as disturbing as everyone makes it to be, and i'm 16, it's a little sadistic. overall it is a great movie, the acting is superb, it is slow at some parts but it's worth it
having Michael Haneke redirect his OWN FILM, which in turn, is shot for shot with the Austrian original, is wierd. The fourth dimension areas, like the remote control scene, is wierd, but overall, they casted two great leads in Peter and Paul (Pitt and Corbet). The terror was great, the "humor" was great, and overall, Funny Games should get its dues as one of the better thrillers of the year. Any need for a movie night, and Funny Games is definetly what i'll be reaching for.
