The Bad Batch REVIEWS

  • Much Ado about nothing......

    June 23rd, 2017

    There are three previous reviews about this film ranging from 3 of 10 to 9 of 10. I won't bore you with the lengthily details of the entire film as one reviewer did. (Would not be surprised at all if He/She had some direct connection with the making of the film, etc) . I am always up for cerebral, off color, non conformist, anti-Hollywood type fil...

  • Desperately trying to be cool

    June 23rd, 2017

    This is another film that screams "I want to be a cult movie!" but just doesn't have what it takes. It starts out promising and then seems to have absolutely nowhere to go; it just becomes long, ponderous and self-indulgent. As someone who grew up going to midnight movies, "The Bad Batch" seems like its taken elements from these films ("El Topo," ...

  • Walking around, more walking, oh and did I mention walking?

    January 25th, 2017

    I was excited to see this movie after reading the synopsis a couple of days before the screening. As the title of this summary suggests, there is a lot of walking in this movie. The story starts out semi promising with you wondering what happened to the earth but ends up being the walkiest and least talkiest movie I've ever seen. I know those aren...

  • So much going for it - but painfully slow

    August 22nd, 2017

    This is a dystopian movie about a young woman left out in a lawless desert with some real choice characters. . This film starts off very brutally but calms down considerably after the first few scenes.. The characters, acting, production and filming are really good. The story is adequate for needs. The scenery and leading lady are absolutely gorge...

  • Wasted Premise in an acting wasteland.

    June 25th, 2017

    You'll need to suspend all of your disbelief to close the holes in this movie's plot, starting with the pumping-iron, body-building cannibals, working out and living in aluminum airplane wreckage in the burning desert sun, in the middle of nowhere. Sun block anyone? . Enter Protagonist Suki Waterhouse, 25, acting age 17, cute and lean, and apparen...

  • What did I just watch.....

    June 23rd, 2017

    Where to start.. AMAZING cast, high hopes, good direction, TERRIFIC cinematography and a Dystopian future to boot....What else can you ask for????. A script that does not read like a bad night of binge drinking.. The storyline was horrendous. The female lead acts like she does shoe commercials. WORST "Essay" accent EVER from Momoa. Keanu looked li...

  • Criminally underrated cannibalism and murder.

    June 26th, 2017

    Ever since I've watched "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014)" this movie has been on my radar. Ana Lily Amirpour is clearly one of the most interesting new directors out there and her next projects should be anticipated. I'm glad to see big name actors like Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey in her movie, they play their parts brilliantly and will pu...

  • Burning woman.

    July 17th, 2017

    Hoo boy. This movie requires some effort. What starts off as a brutal exploitation flick, surely to weed out the meek, evolves into an absorbing treatise on primal human conditions in a barren, deserted wasteland.. While Ana Lily Amipour's sophomore effort contains pulpy roots, littered with outrageous characters and circumstances, it also tackles...

  • Dreadful stuff

    October 3rd, 2017

    I went against my instincts when it came to watching 'The Bad Batch'. Every nerve in my body was telling me it would be dreadful, but the words cannibals, Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves and Giovanni Ribisi kept repeating over and over in my head until I finally gave in and made the fateful mistake of watching it. My god, how is it possible to make a sto...

  • Director's sophomore effort is definitely a slump

    June 25th, 2017

    I was really looking forward to the director's follow up to "A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night" but after seeing it I'm incredibly disappointed. There are a lot of things that work here;the direction and pacing of the film are spot on with some nice cinematography and some interesting choices along the way. Likewise, most of the actor's contribute ...
