Just a Simple Review
21 April 2013 | by wolfenstein9000See all my reviews

As I Mentioned before;this is a brief simple review for a simple movie goer.if you want a detailed informative review.guess what i'm not giving one.oops sorry* well anyway let 1st begin;films like such as this is belong to a " special type " of crowd of film-goer's like me.we seek something different.something thats buzzed and hyped,possibly controversial; maybe even a WHOA factor. as one may put it.i wrote this review for 2 reasons and those 2 reason's only. 1) here's the simple review without me shouting out the entire plot. this takes place in Chile it has an abusive father with two daughters and some drug dealers things go bad and there you have it.wanna know more ? rent it.buy it. contribute to the hard work / effort into the filmmaking process and discover the plot for yourself. ahh yes the question as to is this as controversial as they say it is? well in direct formative answer: YES! more specifically for my American Friends. if you hail from south America or any other country where they view sex & violence like ham and cheese sandwich. NOPE. its enough to satisfy your appetite for sex & violence. and now on to the second reason: 2) i'm soo tired of people on ( not just IMDb )but other forum's ( films & TV ) complaining about violence,sex,video games,etc,etc. yeah you know the age old guns & ammo debate versus the film & television industry.listen up: if you don't like it keep it simple stupid. don't watch it idiot's. don't contribute. don't pirate them. don't sell 'em. don't complain.WHY? because its ART. that's right what's art to me is way different than art to you and vice versa. more specifically to my American people. i love ya'll.i even volunteered and served for my country. soo its very very extremely tiresome to hear outta the mouths of babies who have never had real responsibility in their lives or truly understand just because YOU FEEL its degrading doesn't not intent for everyone else's view. thats the amazing thing about an Opinion versus a fact.soo to wrap things up: go see this film with an open mind open judgment also remember different filmmakers create films to provoke different feelings from all walks of life on the earth no matter what country you come from. please enjoy films such as this one. remember there are a lotta of outta work Director's, Actor's, Producer's, Comedian's, etc. who are just as talented as our common A-Lister's. give every one a chance and soo give this film and the director a chance also Please support the effort and not be the cause of the aftereffect of a failure film. remember 1 film supports many individuals not just the discord of the director because you don't like his / her direction or whomever you dislike. thank you for allowing me to speak. this is my 1st time speaking out. * very nervous * sorry. Please Enjoy ~ Support The Effort.
