This piece of beautiful savage cinema comes with an endearing love story wrapped with blood and maimed corpses. Its the type of vacation that all of us have experienced but this couple deals with in a way that most of us should! Its amoral beauty, folks! Not only it might be my comedy of the year but my favorite movie of the year!
A British couple heads out on holiday only to discover that the people around them, whether they be rude tourists or pompous locals, are ruining all their fun, and what started as a nice romantic outing descends into violence and mayhem. A grim, pitch black comedy about two serial killers in love, and the strange glue that holds them together, SIGHTSEERS is equal turns horrifying and hilarious.
Ben Wheatley drew my attention with his last outing 'Kill List', a twisted layered horror film and was very keen to see his follow up. This time around the horror is portrayed through a very dark and sinister British "comedy". The lead characters are delightfully wicked in a story well woven and with a wonderful build up and a brilliant ending. Can't wait to see what Ben will bring us next.
Dark, demented and decidedly funny. BUT... After two stellar efforts I cannot be a bit underwhelmed by Wheatley's third outing. As usual he wrestles both horror and laughs from the mundane with ease but this time the characters and the sketchy plotting don't gel the way you want it to. Still, this is a good movie but it doesn't stack up to the masterful Kill List.
This emperor has no clothes. This makes three overrated duds in a row; I honestly don't get the love for Wheatley. Grim sight gags and easy, superficial "insights" do not an impressive filmmaker make. He clearly has some talent, but he needs to focus on creating actual characters and storylines not just 90 minute sketches - otherwise just stick to advertising.
One of the cleverest pitch-black comedies of the last times. Full Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/04/sightseers-2012.html
I had really high hopes for this after his impressive and disturbing black-comedy 'Kill List', but Sightseers just left me flat and completely unconvinced. Billed as a hilarious, laugh-out-loud black comedy about a road-trip gone violently wrong I found it far from funny. The performances are decent enough but the script suffers from a lack of story development and the whole thing feels like a student film. 2 stars
The darkest comedy in ages, which was much expected from such a director (who's "Kill List" was a bizarre and shocking debut film). This perverted love story plays like a murderous road-trip film (not unlike Natural Born Killers or True Romance) by way of Monty Python. Brutally violent and peppered with off-colour humour and awkwardness, this film is truly one of kind - was certainly a bit of fun.
It's like a really dark-humored, fucked-up version of "Badlands". I love it.
Extremely funny right from the get go as we are quickly introduced to the socially un-skilled characters. Most successful when the humor arises from the characters and their often cringe-inducing interactions. The (also cringe-inducing) violence is a smidgen less successful at carrying the movie when not as well supported by character humor.
Dark but tremendously hilarious. I felt it was genius , two very odd characters and it follows their journey as their lives become intertwined,which was very disturbing. At some points I feel it did lose focus but overall a great British film ! very proud and loved each location of Britain.
