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.

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.

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.

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.

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

"Like Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Last Life in the Universe, Kontroll is another "chill out" production that's alternately lovely and sinister." - Ed Gonzalez

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.
