Movie Reviews

Disappointing dvd, but the movie is great...
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Having seen the movie multiple times, I was very disappointed with the production of this DVD. Scenes have been cut, for example, a mesmerizing nunchaku demonstration from the killer, and some bizarre editing happened: Tom Berenger is beat up by cops in the movie, and that was edited in the dvd, a stripper's dog howls when killed by the psychopath, and that also doesn't appear in the DVD. I am going to sell this ASAP, and buy the much better produced UK edition, which, strangely enough, features all the missing scenes."
Surprisingly good

"I have seen this movie in VHS at least a dozen times, although I never remember seeing it in the theaters. It has a terrific cast, a good story, great strip scenes and awesome fight scenes. Something for everyone. I was so glad to see it in DVD, since my VHS copy had self-destructed."
UK DVD worse

"In response to the review written on 31/03/01- the film was cut by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) of a total of 1 minute and 10 seconds! This is probably the most edited anywhere. The version on ... UK website is 91 minutes in length; the version on the German website is 93 minutes; the version on this / the US website is 95 minutes in length. One can only assume that an edited version was submitted to the British censor prior to their 1 minute and 10 seconds of cuts."
Just seedy enough.

"I've had this movie for years, back to when I foolishly wasted my money on a laser disk player. But, anyway. The plot of this movie is simple: a psycho has targeted a group of strippers, for his own warped reasons, for death. And of course, we, the audience, get to see the acts of most of the dancers, before their timed-just-right deaths. Rae Dawn Chong and Melanie Griffith, for two. What is there to say about a movie like this? A must see for fans of Abel Ferarra."
