Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
27 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

While exploitation revenge flicks are common since its birth with I Spit on your Grave, Naked Vengeance and Savage Streets, this latest offering from up and coming French director gives us not only the same concept of rape revenge but manages to bring in a style that moves the film at a perfect pace and leveling up the brutality, gore and even giving us a feministic heroine to root for modern day film goers.

The setup goes as this; a group of wealthy men and a woman party it up at an isolated villa in the middle of an outback desert. When the woman of the group gets violated by one of the group and wants out of the party, her lover (though a married man) pushes her off a cliff to her death, but they fail to see her dead as she survives and hunts down the three in a brutal fight for 'revenge'.

With the plot description given, the film overall has the same old cliché's but what makes Revenge unique is it's style and tone that's thankfully done perfect with its cinematography and camera work. There are moments of surreal imagery, graphic wounds and bloody kills uncovered on screen and shades of The Revenant as the heroine finds herself, recovers and arms up to fight as much as Leo DiCaprio did in that film.

The acting range holds firmly, while there's no chance of Oscar winners here in the cast, its heroine and villains move the story with each having a soul purpose to the story and justifying with the audience on what they did and who was the worst of the bad. The soundtrack composed by an music artist known as Rob is a sound for the ears and makes the film so stylish in sound as much as we see on screen.

Overall, this is not something that will be forgotten overnight as Revenge is a brutal ride of violence, blood and survival. Though the cliché has been done again and again, it is given something new here and has earned my viewing pleasure and respect.

4.5/5 - Nick Having heard so many great things about this movie I decided to check it out. The results are now in and it is true...it Is a great movie! You can't take your eyes off the screen, it's so visually stunning that you can't help but to admire the beautiful art done here! The director of this sick, twisted revenge flick (who's a female) does a great job considering the fact this is her first film. She has already proved herself to be extremely talented. The acting was good by everyone involved. The three main male villains were all equally evil in their own way. The victims boyfriend was definitely the leader and the main cause of all of this! This film is very similar to "I spit on your grave", but that doesn't mean it's not a good film. It's a very hard film to watch, but it's also very difficult to ignore! It's a great movie with a message that females are really strong people and can do just as much damage as men. See it in theaters. It's well worth your time! Lots of blood as well! What's not to like? 4.5/5 - Jay
