Dreadfully paced, with the shoddy acting of everyone but Biehn magnified to punishing degrees in talky, lengthy, predictable scenes.

The Victim is a film that will most likely be ignored by those who can't handle the explicit yet chilling prologue, but those who can survive it are in for an unexpectedly amusing sleazefest.
