Very much along the lines of Hostel, Cabin Fever, Saw, etc. V good in that respect. Esp if you’re like me and love anything Santeria/mexican cartel related.

I agree. Definetly has that Hostel/Green Inferno kind of vibe. Overall the movie was entertaining. The last 30 minutes were super cheesy. The violent gorey scenes were great, no complaints there! I love these kinds of movies

What others do you highly recommend. Ever watch the serpent and the rainbow? Kind of old and not as serious horror but pretty good movie from what I remember.

Ha, nice to know. I meet him along with Ely Guerra in Miami back in 03. It’s crazy he’s an actor in the messed up film genre.

Untrue. Europeans (to my knowledge, and especially the French) look down on Americans. Fake is normally the first word to come to mind when we think of you. I myself find Americans to be extremely xenophobic and overly patriotic. Your obsession with the flag is juvenile. Patriotism is dangerous. Look what happened to Germany.

As an American I can assure you not all of us are like that. So over-generalising any nation is bad. It’s xenophobic. Best to just admit there are weirdos in every place. Some Americans are like that, you are right, but not every American.

Still, this movie was lame. Period. They could have done much more with the story they had and were inspired from. The one of the American kid, Killroy. That story is insane, and is what this is based off. It had potential. Oh well.

I really wish Europe would get nuked. Your self-love is fucking incredible. If you hate America so much, stop watching its movies and TV constantly. You can’t because your shite Eurotash is either American rip-offs or boring arthouse crap. There’s nothing wrong with being patriotic. Just because you Eurotards don’t give a shit enough to stop migrants from taking over your entire continent. Pathetic self-adoring dipshits.

P.S. as if anybody outside of France has ever given a fuck what the French think

btw OJ, two of your three points were about eating, that shows how pathetic your argument is, you’ve got nothing, so Americans enjoy tasty food, big fucking deal 😛 at least our continent isn’t drowning in islam, pedo rings and marxism. Europe will destroy itself in a few decades and i can’t wait 😛

Wow no none at all….just pure insanity. Ive been to Mexico and it’s absolutely LOVELY. Maybe try getting out of your bubble for once and visiting them. if you act like that though, I cant guarantee they wont rob you. Me on the other hand they treated like a queen. Rightfully so. I treated them all with love and respect and that’s all I ever got back. They even sold me a gorgeous $60 authentic silver bracelet for $20 and a cigarette. LOL #winning

When you say they treated you like a queen, is it because you are a faggot and they treated you like the queer queen you are. Or is it because you are a liberal turd with a cunt.

Utter trash. I expected torture porn based on real events, instead I got another ‘American goes full Rambo and saves the day’ film. Where was all the rape and torture? The wire through the spine stuff? You know, the stuff that really happened? Don’t waste your time with this.

I am American and i agree with the European, the movie at the end was lame.
Firstly, what is up with the final cut over saturated digital colors? Whoever edited this was insane. I see the purpose of the grittiness by using hard contrast but the over saturation was overboard. Secondly, the sound guy was smoking weed because in one part I heard literally 6 beeps from a car outside. Someone kept beeping. Like really loudly.I guess they felt that didn’t deserve a second take? Wtf. Who does that? Terrible sound person. Finally, the end. Ok the gore was really well done. Hats off to the makeup and special effects people. They were honestly the best part of this film. Unfortunately the writers wanted to make it a hero movie. Then again, it was made in 2007. I guess the hero trope was still alive and well in horror films back then. I hate movies like this. It’s true and I admit it, it’s mainly an American Hollywood style film in that sense. One guy + one girl save the world. Yawn. They could have broken huge ground by sticking to a better story. I do like most of the story line in the middle but they killed it with that ending. Otherwise good film. 3/5 black hearts.
