"This is the worst god damned movied ever made. Vomitous. Hideous. Stupid. Revolting. Before you say "How can John Hubbard say this is the worst movie ever?", I want to assure you that I have seen "Car 54 Where Are You", "Wisdom", "Cabin Boy", "Dogtown", "Man's Best Friend", "Ishtar" and every other crappy movie that was amde since about 1980. This movie straight up sucks.: the editing, the plot, the dialogue, EVERYTHING. Serviceable actors like Jared Harris, Willem Dafoe, Michelle Forbes and Michael Parks should thank their lucky starts that, probably, nobody but me has seen this movie. I SERIOUSLY thought about burning down my house after seeing this crap stain of a film. The writer and director will hopefully leave Hollywood and go backto work at Burger King."
An example of too many friends (cooks) spoiling the broth

"BULLFIGHTER dates back to 2000 and the reason it never was noticed (if it even ever appeared) in the theaters is that it is simply a bad movie. Director Rune Bendixen has attempted to make a film that employs south of the border 'magical realism' with spaghetti westerns and has obviously captured the attention of fine filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Guillermo del Toro as he has cast them in very minor roles. To top it off he somehow convinced a cast of very fine actors to become involved - Olivier Martinez, Michelle Forbes, Donnie Wahlberg, Michael Parks, Willem Dafoe, Jared Harris, etc - but to no avail.
Giving the benefit of some positive comments, Bendixen does stage some sequences having to do with spiritual channeling that take on some nice photographic elements, and....well, it stops there. The editing is choppy at best, the dialogue is not understandable (which is probably a blessing), and the story is so inconsequential that it is next to impossible to stick it out to the end. This seems like Bendixen gathered some good friends together and talked them into a project that would propel him into the ring of edgy filmmakers. It just fizzled. Grady Harp, February 2005"
This is truly awful...

"I'm not kidding you, this is an absolutely awful film. I'm a huge Dafoe fan, and bought it because he's in it. (He's only in it for about two minutes.) This has got to be one of the worst films I have ever seen. No wonder it sat on the shelf for five years. It should have NEVER been released!!!"
