|15 1%||A Serbian Film (2010) - Sep 29, 2017
"I guess this is supposed to have a "message" about contemporary Serbian politics, but I detected no insightful commentary or rich symbolism here. No, what I saw was cheap exploitation, an endless string of lurid sex and depraved violence aimed at upping the shock value, all culminating in a shallow and pointless orgy of grotesquerie. There is nothing pleasant or rewarding here. "

"Cynical, confusing, and dull."

"I won't deny that the film has goofy energy and some fun moments, but it's really uneven in terms of pacing, plotting, and tone. The uplifting message about being yourself is also undercut by some embarrassing ethnic stereotypes & crass, unfunny jokes (and annoying voice-work from the usually enjoyable Williams, among others) "

"Great performances from Jenkins and Russell, and some gruesome, visceral shocks are the most memorable parts of the film. It takes a while to build-up; that doesn't bother me, but I was expecting a bigger pay-off. "

"What a confusing, depressing, and unpleasant movie. I don't have an issue with amoral anti-heroes as long as they're charismatic or compelling, but here we're given no reason to care about or root for any of these characters when they decide to kill or not kill innocent people, to save or not save the world, etc. Moreover, all the characters seems like hollow pastiches of well-worn tropes (assassin with soft-spot for kids, hard-ass squad leader who falls for wrong woman, and so on)."
