HAR PARTAP SINGH B (fr) wrote: What the film 'Chaar Saahibzaade' has done is EXACTLY what a film is supposed to do. It reveals a REAL but unfortunately much lesser know story of unreasonable courage and awe in a brilliant, truthful and respectful way. Besides making your eyes wet, this movie OPENS them! Trust me, it doesn't matter if you're not a Sikh. You're going to walk out of the theatre moved, and with a lesson for life. I have heard the story many times before, many Sikh kids of my generation have. But watching it in form of a film, especially in animation really put me in the middle of it. The world has never seen and will never see again such examples of unbelievable courage, acceptance and strength. Your kids are the greatest beneficiaries of a marvelous tale presented in such a lucid way!!

Jenny L (fr) wrote: From the opening scene the movie caught my eye with the very aesthetic of the filmography. The grainy filter and the very grim tone automatically drew me in and quite easily set the mood for the entire movie. But this movie doesn't just appeal to your eyes, it appeals to your emotions and opens up feelings inside of you that you might not know you even had. The Snowtown Murders will kill a part of you, whether it's your innocence or your peace of mind, almost as easily as John Bunting takes down pedophiles and homosexuals throughout the movies entirety.Though some scenes were (very) hard to stomach, I also found it difficult to take my eyes off the screen. So much of me longed to know what was going to happen next, no matter how unnerving the scenes became. Not knowing if a gun was going to be fired, all the way to hearing the sickening tear of a man's toenail being ripped off as he's being tortured in a bathroom. These scenes drove the plot forward, doing exactly what they were made to do; depict the real life murder scenes in order to generate shock, discomfort, and stir up intense emotions deep inside of viewers. Now, as I didn't long for more gruesome scenes, I was left wishing there had been more character development. There were no straightforward insights as to what is going on inside any of the character's heads, rather we are left to rely on subtext to answer our questions. I found myself wanting to know what was going on inside Jamie's head on a consistent basis. I spent the entire movie feeling a variety of emotions towards him. One can't help but feel bad for the boy who is manipulated into killing by his newfound "father-figure" after being sexually exploited by his mother's old boyfriend and later raped by his own brother, and you want to comfort him, yet run away at the same time. This movie won't get your adrenaline pumping with jump scares every few seconds, but it will leave you feeling uneasy with a chill down your spine. It will leave you wanting more, but also wanting so much less at the same time. One thing that I know for certain after watching this is that the very profound thought that monsters are real and are among us every day of our lives disguised as normal people, is very real.

Holli M (de) wrote: This movie is Really terrible. We watched it at a friend's house so we had to be polite but seriously we don't even know how this movie made it through editing. The performances were embarrassingly bad.

Mark A (mx) wrote: One of the cheesiest, Chinese-esque, mixed race cast, low budget S/FX, poorly acted, "martial arts" movies of all time. (Perhaps "poorly written" is a better descriptor than "poorly acted," though one could fairly use both.) The line "I may be a fool but he's an idiot for sure!" is spoken by the apparently retarded henchman who walks around hunched over, waving his arms around and talking through a feigned overbite. The movie seems to try to be "Big Trouble in Little China" type funny but end up just being a bomb. Several good actors in an otherwise terrible film. If you like good Chinese films and want a painful laugh check it out. Otherwise, steer clear.

Bora B (ca) wrote: it reflects typical Scandinavian life; loneliness, distant relationships and cold of course;) it is touchy. Acting is superb. Just loved it....

Doctor S (ag) wrote: Lojinks at the beach. Some point-and-laughable '80s big hair carryover. Maybe worth an extra star if you watch during the winter and the dish is buried under 3 feet of snow. Eh, make that 5 feet.

Charles B (us) wrote: A dynamic performance by Jason Patric carries this forward. The editing isn't too bad either.
