While attending a bachelor party in Las Vegas, four friends are enticed by two sexy escorts to join them at a private party way off the Strip. Once there, they are horrified to find themselves the subjects of a perverse game of torture.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Not Torture Porn but Rendition Porn; we are supposed to get off not so much on the pain and death but those sexy black SUVs, grimy prison cells, symmetrical corridors, and strict routines of humiliation, binding, gagging and surveillance.
Must say that this one is probably the most impressive. Still, that's not saying much. It's still pretty sterile and void of substance, but it seems to care about its characters, and doesn't spend the first fifty minutes of the film in a strip club and what-not. Like I said, not very commendable, but, in my opinion, stronger than the weak first part, and miles past the abashed second.
I´m not saying that the first two Hostel movies were exactly "good" but at least I consider them both to be entertaining and well made gore fests, delivering what they promise. I´m actually surprised how light this movie is compared to the brutality of the first two films. Bad acting, poor and predictable plot twists and very tame comparing it to the originals. A mediocre horror film and the worst of the franchise.
Pretty bad...Vegas doesn't look like Vegas, there isn't really a hostel (save for a lip-service opening), and the gore is cheap and surprisingly stingy. Slap on a silly revenge motive, add some bad lighting, shooting and editing and we're done. Starring we-couldn't-get Daniel Tosh (Kip Pardue), we-couldn't-get Paul Dano (Chris Coy), & we-couldn't-get Julian Sands (Thomas Kretschmann—though that's hard to believe).
La trama fa acqua da tutte le parti, con twist telefonati e uno sviluppo senza mordente. Personaggi caratterizzati male, senza che la trama compensi questa lacuna. Ritmo troppo lento e alla lunga la storia annoia. Finale abbastanza ridicolo. La messa in scena è orribile, con una fotografia degna della peggiore serie tv e una CGI orribile. Le torture sono fine a se stesse e non godono di una bella realizzazione
stupido, senza senso, incoerente. Recitato male, scritto anche peggio, con una storia improponibile, colpi di scena inverosimili e un finale quasi comico. Quasi, perché non è uno di quei film così brutti che diventano belli. Riesce a far apparire i primi due della trilogia quasi dei bei film, e penso di non dover aggiungere altro
