I'm sorry to even bring this up, but I feel that I need to tell as many people about this movie.

If you like a gory, graphic movie that is so "dark" it's scary to call it entertainment, it's your movie. It was the most tasteless movie I have ever seen. We walked in to see this movie expecting to see a super hero movie, OMG... my wife and I walked out and demanded our money back (which since we watched too much of the movie, they wouldn't). I am not considered a prude, but man, there has to be a line drawn somewhere. It was so horrible I felt like going home and watching the "Care Bear Movie" to clense my brain. I can't believe this got an "R" rating. When is full male frontal nudity "R"? The 2 scenes that is stuck in my head the most is JFK getting shot and seeing the blood and guts on the trunk lid and (2) see the little girl being eaten by dogs (that's when we had enough and walked out). I can't believe Warner Bros. put such tasteless trash out to the public.

I'm so sorry again to even bring this OT up, but OMG what has this world come to?

I agree. I saw this movie and it was nothing like what I expected. Loooooong, tasteless, dark, be careful!

I'm looking forward to the DVD release. I'd go see it in the theater, but I hate sitting in theaters for 3 hours. And no, I have never read the graphic novel, not a fanboy, but I do know enough about it to want to see the movie. Tasteless gore is right up my alley. Probably could do without the blue sausagefest, but I can avert my eyes from that. It is a hero movie, just not a light and fluffy one like Spiderman.

Carlin calls this 'meatbread' when it's decomposing in the back of the fridge.

I was interested in seeing this, but I bought the large book and it was pretty graphic! decided to pass.

If anyone wants the book, 20 bucks shipped! It was 35.00 new.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Looks like interest is fading quickly for bright blue digital ding-dongs.

i saw it in theater shortly after it came out.

i was honestly a bit disapointed in it considering the hype and the awsome previews.

this movie is rated 'R' for a reason, male/female nudity, blood, sex, guts, and cussing. this isnt a little kids comic book super hero movie. its an adult movie.

apparently if you have read the novel (from what i have heard), then the male nudity makes sense...i suppose the reason is explained in the novel. but in any case, i dont hear people complaining about the female nudity. it can go both ways. just grow up and stop complaining about the male stuff. i find it strange that of all the things that happened in the movie, so many people snicker, giggle and focus on the male nudity. please try to focus on other things.

the producers were apparently trying to be very diligent in keeping true to the novel, therefore...they go as far as the novel.

i will agree though that the movie seemed to drag on at times and get a little slow. the sex scene's dragged on for what i felt way too long, it was borderlining on a soft core porn film with slightly less nudity.

overall though i did like it, but not as much as i thought i would. the ending is very good IMO.

now im waiting for transformers 2 to come out

I know of a lot of movies that earned an "R" rating with male nudity.

Take 1998's Wild Things. Kevin Bacon's bacon. An "A-list" celebrity of all people.

Speaking of which, for anyone who has ever played "6 degrees of Kevin Bacon" you can link Kevin Bacon with John Travolta by going:

Kevin Bacon was in Wild Things with his wiener
Which was in Kyra Sedgewick,
who was in Phenomenon with John Travolta

I was not happy with it, It was nice to see on the IMAX screen, but I would have rather waited till it hit BR/DVD

I saw it a couple days ago and it was pretty graphic. I won't forget the scene where the little girl gets kidnapped and eaten by the dogs for a long time. The nudity I can take, but some of the gore seemed a little over the top.

Lesson learned: read a book before seeing the movie.

We went to go see it based on the previews on tv only. Looked like a good movie. Sadly it wasn't portayed of what type of movie it was.

It should have atleast been NC-17 and not R

How would anyone compare the blood & gore to say, a movie like Hostel?
Does this make Hostel look tame?

I really liked the movie. If you went to the theater expecting to see another piece of garbage like Spiderman, then I can see how you would be disappointed. The movie was about humanity and human nature, not super heros, although it was sort of advertised like it was.

That aside, I thought it was really well done. You can usually predict the ending of every movie once the conflict is established, but not this one. I was really surprised about its complexity and depth.

Also, this movie wasn't that violent. If you want to see a movie with lots of violence, watch Punisher:WarZone. That movie doesn't go 5 minutes with out someones face being blown off.

will wash your heli for a quarter

I havn't seen this yet but plan on watching it soon.

Dood, I too would like to know what people think about Hostel. Its been awhile since watching both Hostel 1 and Hostel 2 but I can remember a crazy man burning out a girls eyes with a blowtorch and a naked women hung upside down while another women drained her blood with a whip.

I saw it last week. A friend debriefed me on the book prior to seeing the movie so I had an idea of what to expect. The first 45 minutes or so of the movie moved very slowly for me, and after that it wasn't much better. There was a lot of gore but I can't say it was any worse than 300. The sex scenes were a bit long and could be uncomfortable depending on who you went to see the movie with With that said, I would not recommend it to someone unless they were a fan of the story line. Rorschach was a cool character though!
