    "For the Sake of Vicious" is like Blue Ruin dialled up to eleventy-stupid; tense, compelling and gory.


    Absolutely ridiculous trash!!! The violence was good & realistic but everything else was so stupid that i couldn't get into it & all suspense was wasted because of the situation, we have a nurse & a vigilante & a hostage in a small suburban house in a neighbourhood on Halloween night & we have a gang laying Seige to that house & there's lots of shootings & fighting & screaming & yet NO ONE HEARS OR SEES A THING????? ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT when everyone is out Trick or Treating & the streets are busy & no one hears or sees a thing? & the gang arrived on motorbikes!!!! Utter bullshi# & that ruined any believability in the supposed to be a very serious story about Child rape & vigilante justice but it's all ruined by the disbelief of all that i mentioned.

    The main guy vigilante is a troubled father, who looks like Tom Green, & he captured the man he believes raped his little girl & all that part of the story is done fairly well & disturbing with it's flashbacks & the performances are ok for this type of cheap flick but it's all un-done by the silliness of all i mentioned & sucked me right out of the film, i liked the brutality & i totally agree with Vigilante justice & all child abusers should be brutally EXTERMINATED but the film as a whole was badly done.

  • you will have plenty of opportunities to jump of this... by 7

    Unchained bull of hell-o-ween mayhem, and if you have a mickey probe connected to your guts, or have reduced your ventrikkuly size to become a slimmer and nicer person it maybe a competitive enhancement for you, because this is a very violent gore and with blood up to your ears kind of horrific violence that seems to never end, all because of mistaken identity from a man that wants revenge over his beloved daughter that were kidnapped and killed 5 years earlier.

    So now all laymen out there you have the chance to switching on this film, youre warned, this is not an innocent teenage sprawl halloween flick, its murders and decapitative behavioural issues en masse'.

    But by all means, with a revengeful story comes usually a good rewarding feeling , my feeling though is bland and the plot is drawn to the limits of what my countrys censorship board would allow at the movie theater. This said ive come to the conclusion that the film aint bad at all, all that blood and stunning visual violence needs good planning and extremely good make up artists. The fights in very small living spaces is just jawbreaking, and its no wonder the hammerhead hits something it shouldnt when living life like sardines in a box.

    When So said its not a screenplay that will enhance the actor, rather the opposite, they do a sadistic sosiopathic impression to me and if it hadnt been for the relatively calm serendipitously placed woman that tries to phatom what the heck is happening in her home at this halloween evening this would have been far from the number 7( a number that is pretty symbolical for this film, 7 deaths, 7 blows etc...). So lora burke does her job as an actor, and does handle the situation as a proffesional nurse at all levels(im a nurse myself...).

    So if you can stand the visuals of a bloody ordeal, or how to let your kids paint the kitchen red with non other tools than a gun , a dagger, and a clawhammer, then have a look for the sake of visciousity, its starts in a halloweenistic way but ends as shocking as ''class of 1984'' did.

    The grumpy old man didnt have any erotic moments, had a few giggles though due to the maddening behaviour by the intruding occupants, there are some sound issues, and very low dialouge sound vs score and sound effects that will wake up your better half if sneak peeking the laptop under your bed blankets. I give this a recommend for what it is, instantanious violence at all parts and never a moment of relaxation, im still numb...

    So maybe not an 8 but a definite 7! Gotta make up for the 1 star who probably shouldn't have watched it in the first place! I will agree the lead looks a bit like Tom Green and he seems to be channeling Nicolas Cage. The female lead I hope to see more of. It's obviously not meant to be more than it is, a fun ride! I'm usually bummed I spent $5.99 on a flick while bored but I was pleasantly surprised!

    Another story about revenge. But, then it gets weird and a little bit better.

    If you're squeamish about blood and people getting hurt then this film is not for you. Lots of close action fight scenes with nowhere for the knives to go except into the people type of movie.

    Various characters get introduced later on in the film which (for me) made it watchable again and regained my interest. 4.9 - 5.0 for me.
