Format: Paperback
Kendrick's book gives a valuable and easy to read overview of the debates and theories surrounding film violence in popular cinema. The focus is on western cinema with specific investigation into several film-makers and genres. What I find most helpful is Kendrick's ability to put ideas, theories, etc, into historical frameworks, giving a sense of how the reactions to film violence have changed (or often stayed the same). Excellent work.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring alert 27 Feb. 2014
By LJ Clay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am an avid reader and even enjoy a lot of college assigned books. But this book was written in such a stiff, overly academic style that it was extremely boring to read. If I hadn't been assigned to read it, I would've put it down after page two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scholarly but past the vernacular 2 May 2014
By Andrew Kayle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is for those who want to dive into the academic side of the subject matter and aren't scared of big words. I found myself having to reread some paragraphs to get the full depth of the meaning but much like chess, you only get smarter by playing a better opponent.

Kendrick is that better opponent.
