Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Winterbottom was right to keep the light and compositions flat and bright and eerily sunny, no matter what sort of evilness Lou perpetrates. But the story should grow progressively more reckless-seeming and feverish; instead, it is methodical to a fault.
Rotten: As for the misogynist brutality, it is indeed depraved, made more so by the fact that its female victims are depicted as loving their abuse right up until it turns murderous.
Fresh: This adaptation of Thompson's 1952 novel about a cunning, psychotic sheriff's deputy in a small Texas town locates the killer inside him and immerses us in the cold calculation and horrible logic that pull him from one murder to the next.
Fresh: What a crock.
Glad I didn't read any reviews before buying this movie because I most likely would have passed it by. It had my attention through the entire movie. All I could say was "WOW" & "OMG"! It has definite "Shock" value. I'm happy with the purchase.
A good film...
This is a good film adaptation of a good book. Casey Affleck gave a great, subtle performance. Hudson was decent and Alba was passable. I feel that the controversy surrounding this film is definitely unwarranted. The violence was brutal, but not as catastrophic as some make it out to be. Get over it. Thanks to the idiots that started that nonsense this movie was ill-received and criminally under-advertised. So support this film! It will probably end up in cult status.
Don't waste your money
The intensely disturbing scene of a woman being beaten is indescribable. I am not weak and i honestly feel traumatized by it. All others that see this as entertainment or no big deal must be something less than human.
