(au) wrote: Juno Temple is a great actress and this role was unexpected for her. That's about it.
(us) wrote: An interesting plot twist makes this typical backwoods horror a worth see... albeit the acting is mediocre, the storyline makes up for it
(jp) wrote: Damn. So powerful. We sometimes forget that those who bully are often victims themselves. No, bullying isn't right in any form, but this film makes you think. Not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.
(de) wrote: One of the best anti-war movies out there, from a country that has more right to make this film than any other. Pity it's not more well known in our hollywood ruled world.
(de) wrote: It's got sharp animation and some cool dream sequences, but that can't save it from the thin characters and overly pandering narrative that talks down to the target audience.
(ag) wrote: A very good rehabilitation movie because of the writing and the performances. The movie is never overdramatic and always played with a serious tone. I enjoyed it a lot because of its main character. Who at first denies even being addicted but uses the center as a way to stay away from his outside world. It did not show a stereotypical druggie but a functioning one who was able at the end to find some closure. He was not able to save his job or the girl he was attracted to but he learned a lot. Overall it is a great movie with great acting.

(au) wrote: Finally, a horror comedy about a werewolf policeman. But that's not all it's about, there's a twist I definitely didn't see coming. Funny but not hilarious.
