"This movie in my eyes is near cinematic perfection. German cinema has always had its share of good movies, but this one ( along with das boot) stand out for me. Gripping story telling, top notch acting , intense atmospheric scenes, clever writing... A tad bit better than der Untergang, also released at about the same time. A must see for anyone who is a fan of cinema."

"Dear lord why does mike bay HAVE to make these long ass movies. One word to describe this film? Exhausting. Or how about tedious. Its the same action weve seen before in overload, and not much else. Tho the script is a tad bit better than the horrendous part Deux.Second time i watched it i did enjoy it more, but maybe it was because it was at home, and i could press pause."

"All the time I ask myself why , why did mike van diem make 1 short movie ( Alaska ), 1 full length ( being this one) which won all these huge awards ( including an Oscar) , and never do something close to cinema again? The set pieces! The acting! The script! The atmospheric tension building! A masterpiece. If not the best , one of the best Dutch movies out there.A must watch for all cinema lovers!"

"Highest paid award winning actor combined with highest paid award winning actress and a (so far) good director, what do we get? Mediocre and predictable. What a waste of talent. Shows how a movie looks when it lacks any form of originality or uniqueness."

"A nice litl romp stomp of a horror movie. Plenty of blood, plenty of guts, anda a half believable story. Pacing is good, acting is fine, and the killer's mask is pretty bad ass, unfortunately thas about the only thing cool about him. For the horror fans."
