A serviceable reintroduction to Roth's idiosyncratic brand of horror, but it fails to either offend or exhilarate, instead chronicling the misadventures of a group of student activists with more technical acuity than singularity.

Grolsch Film Works

thematically of a piece with the director's influential Hostel (2005) in its focus on the experience of clueless, meddling Americans abroad. Unfortunately it also shares with Hostel Roth's inability to settle on a consistent or compelling tone.

The plot may sound fairly simplistic but underneath the blood and guts there's a biting satire about rich cosseted students signing up to causes they hardly understand.

A tongue in cheek movie only occasionally prepared to go all the way and have that tongue cut out.
