  2. lou.'s rating of the film A History of Violence

    To me, a bit delusional Cronenberg.

  3. Ilkan Atabay's rating of the film A History of Violence

    director is good, script is shiiiit!

  4. Danny Mansfield's rating of the film A History of Violence

    A little slow getting there, but Cronenberg's film about the past selves we'd rather forget is ultimately haunting, and devastating. The ending, which has no dialogue, is tragic and a good use of film's visual story telling. Quite an underrated gem, this one.

  5. Jo's rating of the film A History of Violence

    80s/90s Cronenberg is more my cup of tea.

  6. sekmadieniaislyja's rating of the film A History of Violence

    what a pretentious piece of garbage

  7. Adam Whybray's rating of the film A History of Violence

    3.5 stars. Hugely compelling and meticulously controlled by Cronenberg at his craftiest (if not most imaginative). I always find it interesting when Canadians make films about America (see also: John Paizs' 'Crimewave'). But, the themes simply don't speak to me. I'm not interested enough in certain kinds of violence - though maybe I should be. I think I would have responded differently as an American viewer.

  10. lbunuel's rating of the film A History of Violence

    It has three clear facets: one is a wry comment on the American dream; the other is a classical Dostoyevskian tale about redemption; the final is a psychological horror on doubles and lies. All of these facets are dealt with so masterfully that you can't tell one from another, and you can't even be sure if the film is being ironic or straight.

  12. spasmolytic's rating of the film A History of Violence

    This and Cosmopolis are my two least favorite Cronenberg.

  13. Andre Flickatina's rating of the film A History of Violence

  15. letters never sent's rating of the film A History of Violence

  16. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film A History of Violence

    Solid Graphic novel adaptation about how violence lead to a domino-effect on an entire family and the psychological effects it has on them. William Hurt do one of his best appearances in God knows how long time by growing himself a goatee and doing a mean vicious character. The rest of the cast is also excellent as we get Viggo, Ed and Maria in top form. Nice to see Cronenberg have a mainstream hit once in a while.

  17. Matthew Catanzano's rating of the film A History of Violence

    Cronenberg's Tarantino picture.

  18. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film A History of Violence

    Obviously this greatly appeales to many people. Strangly not so much to me. Strangely, because here is a lot of violence which I like; sexy Maria Bello who does a very good performance; twists and turns make the movie interesting. However, in between the plot develops so slowly, it gets boring; Mortensen's "mildness" is disproportionate; Ed Harris' acting is poor, William Hurt's performance is a joke. Just solid.

  19. Stefano Campagna's rating of the film A History of Violence

  20. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film A History of Violence

  21. Ka potem Es's rating of the film A History of Violence

  22. smndvdcl's rating of the film A History of Violence

    A surprisingly linear and gripping thriller from Cronenberg that understands the weight of ghosts from the past.

  23. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film A History of Violence

    Impressionante come si possa facilmente deturpare la bellezza di un soggetto con pochi piccoli dettagli. I protagonisti sono lo stereotipo della famiglia media statunitense in una piccola cittadina modesta, il cui american dream viene sconvolto da dei segreti oscuri, come in mille altri film a stelle e strisce. Fino agli ultimi 15 minuti l'ho trovato guardabile, poi è andato tutto in vacca con la sparatoria in villa.
