A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas, and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
This movie is literally bubbling over with blood and gore left, right and centre and leaves little to the imagination. In fact I don’t think it leaves anything to the imagination whatsoever. Jason Eisener, in his first proper movie as a director, knows how to make a bloody scene even more gory than you could imagine. At times the gore looks quite convincing and at others less so but it comes so thick and fast that you won’t have time to worry yourself with small matters such as that.
This film has a superb nostalgic look, and it’s one of the most colorful and vibrant movies projected on screen. But why are we here? For the deaths! And boy, do they not disappoint. Eating glass, decapitating heads, and shots to the head are not even the goriest segments. Actually, they’re the tamest. Not only that but almost every five minutes there’s blood. Whether a dead body in a shot, random blood, or a kill occurring. This is just a huge blood bath. And a great one at that.
The DVD comes with a ton of featurettes, deleted scenes, alternate ending and commentaries. On top of that, you get a digital copy that makes you go through Magnolia’s rather complicated means of verifying that you have a legit digital copy. I don’t get what the deal is, as most studios just have the copies trigger within a prompt inside of ITunes. Still, if you can get past that…you’re receiving a double disc special edition with amazing A/V Quality. While it seems that geekdom’s fascination with Grindhouse culture is coming to an end, you can still appreciate great cinema.
