3.0 out of 5 stars An average film, 17 Oct 2007
This review is from: Paradise Lost, Extreme Edition [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
A film about good looking travellers who get taken advantage of and ultimately tortured is perhaps a tad offensive to Brazillians, although does have the potential to be scary and nail biting. This film made a good effort but doesn't quite pull it off. The Americans are annoying, the Londoners cheerful cockney chappies that Americans seem to think is true of all Londoners and the Australian (Melissa George) is probably the best character as the mysterious lone traveller.

Probably the most terrifying moment is when the group awake dazed and robbed after having a fantastic night in a bar with seemingly friendly locals. After this, the film sinks into a cross between Hostel, Urban Legend and The Hills have eyes. It's not a bad film, although I'm not sure I would describe it as enjoyable, since it can be really nasty at times. I am not sorry I watched it but I am glad I rented rather then brought this dvd.
