  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Bloody Knuckles

    At its best, Bloody Knuckles is an obvious and too tidy commentary against censorship of the grotesque and bizarre. The film itself is rather juvenile and tasteless without being as funny as it thinks it is, and it often feels awkward in its attempts at humor. That may be the point, but it doesn't make a good movie. It also takes too long for the hand-revenge element to get going. But once it does, it's semi-fun.
