The characters and dialogue were laughable, the special effects were even worse. The mannequins were rather creepy, especially when they started to pile up onto the characters. It could have been better if there was more graphic violence and better use of the lighting/music.

The plot was entirely cheesy and predictable, but the set was so beautiful and lush, I really adore the urban chic style used for the film. The acting was rather rubbish, even the gratuitous nudity could not save the film from boring me to death. I was disappointed because it really does not fit well with the giallo genre due to the deaths are all either off screen or have little gore. Evelyn should have stayed in her grave.

It actually started off quite well, each character were given a detailed yet swift biography on what they are doing to prepare for the annual Purge. The little twists and turns were great in the beginning, predictable but the violence was fun. Then it all went down hill as the couple found the vengeful cop and forced themselves onto the cop's protection. Then they went to the Hispanic family friend's place and it couldn't be anymore disappointing. I actually liked the idea of hunting arena, I wish they would've expand it a bit more and make it more realistic. Finally,I just want to say that I absolutely disapprove of the message the film is trying to send out.

It was actually better than I expected, I had a few laughs. It stayed true to the notorious video game of the same name, being a massive fan of the game, I was actually satisfied with Boll's writing and direction.

The play takes on a different approach to the classic novella by focusing on the actress who auditions for the role and the lead and the director who is desperate to find an actress. Unlike his usual minimalist setting, this film embodied the lavishing glory of French theatre but only using two actors. The film was funny, the running time was perfectly planned, each minute was great, you don't feel bored or dragged at all. The character development was the greatest part, it's interesting to see Venus in Fur actually manifested the characters. If you like Polanski, you'd like his latest addition to his filmography.
