4.0 out of 5 stars [3.5]--"Feast" has a thin plot but supplies a lot of Fun,, 30 Jun 2007
This review is from: Feast [DVD] [2006] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
It was really good besides one simple unanswered question:

Where the hell did the creatures come from????!!!! First of all the movie has an undeniable good factor about it. Henry Rollins as a second rate Tony Robbins, a Jason Mewes joke, and a truly funny self referential anyone can and will die at anytime vibe all in the first ten minutes sets the table high.

The storyline is nothing ground-breaking, but with the very simple plot, this one makes the most of its cast and writers and turns what could have been a boring dud of a film into an extremely entertaining ride. The movie involves people inside a bar and monsters outside trying to get in. Nothing more. It turns into a surprisingly action packed film for what is basically a one set Rio Bravo remake. Like "Shaun of the Dead" (Another better than anyone could of hoped horror comedy) the characters make the difference.

There is plenty of cannon fodder (Introduced in an almost to long for its own good style of captions rating the various bar patrons survivability) and eye candy and best of all a surprising amount of x-rated violence. (There isn't a body fluid not featured in the movie. Finally an unrated cut that is truly unrated and not just an "R" with some deleted exposition scenes.)

The movie wisely never explains what the monsters are or how they got there. It concentrates on the real time survival of the bar patrons. Did I mention that anyone can die at anytime? Even your best horror movie watching radar will be put to the test as you try to figure out who among the rabble are the prerequisite hero and heroine.

"Feast" again is nothing ground-breaking in terms of concept but has plenty of fun, action, and style covered over by some rough spots. This is simply a good B movie.
