The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten.

The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only.

With plots as flimsy as the one presented here, there's a tendency to favor spectacle over character development, and it's no surprise that Raze struggles to balance the two.

Prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago.

Raze ultimately becomes little more than a tiresome endurance test ... Still, much like a less accomplished The Raid, some viewers may respond to its bloody, take-no-prisoners style.
