Nope. I'm done with you, Ben Wheatley. Your juxtapose tonal shifts are excruciating. Your satire is boring and flat. Your mumble mouthed characters are unwatchable. Pathetic couple goes on a killing-spree roadtrip? From the first five minutes, I couldn't wait to see your main characters die, but then I had to endure them for another hour and twenty minutes. You're not genre bending. You're just amateur.
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.
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.
Every little bit as disturbing as Kill List and insanely funny. Sightseers captures middle England's hum-drum pace, it's fascination with pastoral idyll and beauty and the threat of losing it's identity. Brilliant references to late 60's/early 70's British horror like the Wicker Man and Blood on Satan's Claw. Definitely recommended to anyone that hasn't ventured north of Watford.
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!
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.
