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. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: not what it appears to be on the surface. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jun 24, 2010

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. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The performances are outstanding across the board. The direction and writing are masterful. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Jun 24, 2010

Great Movie

This movie was really well done. It had a great plot. This movie was great in soooo many ways. It had no background music. None what so ever. The only music was on the radios. Yes it was shot for shot remake, but this was still very good. Naomi Watts is a great actress. She was awsome in this movie. This movie was made to make us feel like we were there with them. Not many movies can make you feel that. And if this really happening would there be background music while this happening to someone or you self. NO. No there wouldn't. Yea and not many movies do kill little kids. In other movies the crazy people feel sorry for the kid... not this one... And in most movies like this the good guys win. But they dont always in real life... This movie was ment to feel like it was happening right in front of us. The part where Paul looks, talks into the camera is awsome too. And the part where he rewinds the movie is awsome too. I have never seen a movie as great as this one. Any one who reads this needs to watch this movie.


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.

Misunderstood Genius

This movie is amazing! Most people don't get that it's not supposed to be like a regular run-of-the-mill slasher movie, which will turn off a lot of viewers. This is basically an art-house movie in disguise. The acting is amazing, epic even. The directing is painfully amazing as well, but it will infuriate a lot of viewers as well. You rarely see any violence, which, again, will make viewers agitated. It's painfully brutal, but it the best way possible. Probably not the best iPod movie, but otherwise, amazing. Please at least try it! It's worth it and...well...don't you want to know if you want to play a Funny Game ;DDDD
