What are people saying?

  • josé neves's rating of the film Bruiser

    So far, the only Romero movie I do not like. A sort of compilation of "what's what" of movies and filmmakers of reference- a little Argento, something of Castle's nonsense and plenty of De Palma's "Phantom of Paradise" and Raimi's "Darkman" - to an incongruence with little interest, with a set of horrendous actors, Peter Stormare in particular, and a very poor use of a very bad soundtrack. And yet, what a good idea.

  • Ethan's rating of the film Bruiser

    This is a nice little gem from Romero even if it is a bit over the top but that may have been the intention. Nonetheless it was a fun watch and an interesting take on a story that has been done a million times.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Bruiser

    *1/2 . After MONKEY SHINES and THE DARK HALF, BRUISER is the third Romero movie on the bounce dealing with the theme of Revenge. After the monkey and the evil twin, the director uses a virtual mask à la Halloween in order to embody the hero's rage. Yes. With the exception of the social comment on Peter Stormare's way of dealing with his CEO title, the film is anecdotical. Already forgotten.

  • TheCentralRuhr's rating of the film Bruiser

    Just as in the beginning with Night of the Living Dead, the source of horror for Romero is located in the loss of identity. The 'faceless' zombies of one generation are translated into the callous yuppies of another period. This dehumanizing existence can only result in people vengefully dehumanizing their surroundings, and thus Creedlow descends into violence toward those around him (cont.)

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Bruiser

    Une première partie excellente, description patronale hénaurme entre grotesque et caricature, puis le film s'englue et se dissout lentement jusqu'à une stupide soirée masquée qui a dû permettre à Roméro de fêter à moindres frais la fin du tournage... www.cinefiches.com
