This review is from: A History Of Violence [DVD] (DVD)
Being a big fan of gangster/controversal movies, I was looking forward to watching the newest David Cronenberg film, A History Of Violence.
However, now I have viewed it, theres not much to say. I was expecting a fast paced action gangster flick - and of course violence. When I heard it was a thriller, however, I paced myself for something that may not contain a lot of action, but a good plot and ending.
Its not a bad film...but not great either. The story is good, but it feels like youve seen this kind of thing before. The title of the film and the 18 classification natrually expected me to see a lot of violence. There is occassional gruesome scenes, but not to the extend of what you can imagine it to me with a story such as this. If it were not for the violent sex scene, I would have glady given this a 15 classification sticker.
All in all, a film worth watching, but to me a big dissappointment.
