Grant S (kr) wrote: Really only for Neil Young fans (like me), and even then it is so-so. The non-music part should feel nostalgic and emotional, as it covers Neil Young retracing his childhood in his hometown, but just seems dull. There is no profound moment, and it just seems like one big ramble. The music is the highlight, of course, but even that could have been better. Way too many recent Young songs, not enough classics. And I'm not sure I prefer the one-band version of Neil Young to the hard-rocking Crazy Horse version...

Jacob G (it) wrote: This is nowhere near as bad as the reviews say. And their exaggerations are hilarious, outlining the gruesome "hour of torture" (which was maybe 20 minutes, probably less). Perhaps it is a testament that 20 minutes of torture felt like an hour, though. Because what is here cringe-inducing.I'm not often a squinter to avoid torture scenes, but I was doing a lot of it here. And I certainly don't feel like I missed out on anything.The first 40-odd minutes of The Tortured are the strongest 40 minutes. As one review said, there is a great movie here, but it's not the movie they decided to show us. Outlining the kidnapping of a child, his murder, and the impact on the parents--that stuff is gold. It's gold even with the awkward bevy of flashbacks. And to an extent the torture stuff is a bit cathartic. It's not hard to identify with the rage felt by the parents. But then it gets too much, and then that's when I start squinting.No, the real problem here is the movie's sudden attempt to moralize and the I-should-have-seen-it-coming twist. These shatter the movie, erasing the good and amplifying the bad. You don't leave this movie feeling good. Even fans of torture-centric movies will have trouble feeling comfortable with that ending.

Keegan K (br) wrote: Great movie! I loved Dirty Dancing so I had to see this one. I love the style as it reminds me of Magic City and had some of the characters from Mad Men. The background and music and dancing were my favorites. I'd say it was pretty perfect except the ending wasn't exactly what I had in mind.
Ryan H (us) wrote: It's competently made, but pretty forgettable. With a cast that includes Alan Arkin, Matthew McConaughey, John Turturro, and Clea DuVall I expected something better. The thirteen conversations are all about happiness. How does one find happiness? Is it through dedication and hard work? Selfless acts? Or simply walking around with a smile on your face? The interesting part of this film comes with the car accident and the lineage of the storyline. We don't really know if Alan Arkin at work is before or after the bar scene. But it seems like it was used as a ploy to keep you interested because the story itself wasn't interesting enough to keep you watching. Maybe that's just me, I don't know. It had some good elements to it, like John Turturro trying to find what he really wants from life after getting held up from a man the same age as him. Alan Arkin's character was pretty good. I liked his problem of trying to find out what made his employee so happy all the time. He thinks it must all be fake. I guess another big problem for me was pacing. We spend tons of time with Alan Arkin's character that I forgot about Clea DuVall and what she's been up to, and the same goes for John Turturro, who seems to have minimal screen time. The only way he was connected was through his wife waving to Alan Arkin in the end. I understand how he fits thematically, but I don't think he was even wrapped up well. He's just going to always be on the search for happiness until he discovers that stability isn't so bad? Well why don't we see him come to that conclusion? I feel like he doesn't make a single discovery in the film, which makes him pretty flat. The scene where Clea DuVall discovers the man whose house she cleans thinks that she stole from him was pretty devastating, considering she thought he discontinued their services because she wasn't around. Like I said, it's got some good stuff throughout, but I don't think it's enough to really say it's much past good.

Derrick C (au) wrote: A typically gothic hammer film that just doesn't have enough evil to push it past the others. The story is pretty run of the mill by Hammer standards, but the actors make it worth while. Anything where Cushing and Lee are opposing one another is a worthwhile watch in my book, even if the snakes look terrible coming out of the Gorgons head.
