Hostel: Part II Reviews
Any semblance of suspense quickly gives way to buzz saws, drill bits and sickles. And the movie ends so abruptly, one has to think the filmmakers ran out of either money or prosthetic body parts.
Roth might have chutzpah, but, sadly he doesn't have any interest in actually scaring us. The moviemaking is driven only by contempt; he wants to nauseate us into submission.
Ends up there is a moral to the story, one sure to delight the bamboozled pseudo-intellectuals who laughably defended Hostel as a geo-political critique of American arrogance and the culture of torture.
Roth is good at what he does. Trouble is, he keeps making the same kind of movie over and over, and with his talent and imagination you'd like to see what other weapons he has in his arsenal.
