Overall Enjoyment: 15/40, Plot/Themes: 10/20, Cinematography/Direction: 10/20, Acting/Writing: 10/20 Kontroll was a very strange movie. Some parts of the movie were quite enjoyable but overall it comes off as annoyingly ambiguous and I don't have any burning desire to ever rewatch it. Also while the setting is neat, filming an entire movie in the subway without a change of setting at all starts to be grating.

This is a blatant Hollywoodization of classic Eastern European surrealism. It has some moments of excellence, but it's diluted to appeal to a broader audience.

Cool little film that creates an interesting atmosphere as it only takes place in the grimy subway network. I really enjoyed the camerawork, music, casting and locations. A bit disorienting how the movie switches from comedy to semi-thriller, and it's a shame the whole thing wraps up way too fast at the end. The cuteness of the bear costume girl was hard to reconcile with my hatred of everything furry-related, leaving me confused and partially randy.

It felt very much like a feature film debut and it was. That’s not to put it down or anything, it’s just easy to tell sometimes. Anyway, I liked it. I didn’t love it, but it was interesting enough all the way through. It was nicely shot and managed to give off a surreal feeling quite well.

Man I really did not like this movie, I actually need film fans to explain why they rated this so high. It's so dull, and boring, and paced very slow with no payoff or character growth.

Some films aspire to creating a world of their own, a fully-functioning universe where only the specific laws of the film apply. Kontroll creates such a world without blowing the bank on art direction, props or costumes. Underground, the makers of this film have created a darkly beautiful hades populated by a charmingly misanthropic cast. Aside from creating such a complete world, the pacing of the film is sharp, the cinematography is gorgeous, and the ultimate message of the story comes off

The PSI is pretty right on here. I enjoyed it but it didn't wow me. There are great things about this: the comedy is great, and I enjoyed the music. I enjoyed the visuals. The thriller aspect should have been more explored.

Not bad, but schizophrenic. Hints at a thriller in the intro, then becomes a comedy for the bulk of the film, and returns to thriller. The comedy is fine, although a bit reminiscent of those 80's comedies about some ragtag group of misfits. The thriller angle is more intriguing and I'd like to have seen it fleshed out more. Bonus points for a nice sense of visual style and a groovy soundtrack.

Top badass moment? For most of this film the ticket inspectors are on the wrong end of abuse from passengers. In one incident, an especially annoying woman threatens to report one for groping her if he hassles her any more about not having a ticket. So the guy promptly grabs her boobs, much to her horror and embarrassment. Now I’m not condoning this in any way, but somehow she deserved it. Calling someone’s bluff is always badass, if you get away with it. No cats, chainsaws or decapitations.

Kontroll is a very gritty, emotionally driven story of good and evil. The mix of terror and humor is very unique, and the film is quite captivating because of it. Really good!

Started out great, with a fun cast and intriguing story, but by the end had devolved into an abstract mish-mash that felt like a film student's thesis.
