A good movie

3 years, 5 months ago at May 4 14:16
This is the last movie directed by Paul Verhoeven which I hadn't seen yet so, of course, I was really eager to watch it. For Verhoeven, it was also a milestone since it is the first movie he made outside the Netherlands and just before he went to Hollywood directing movies such as 'Robocop', 'Total Recall', 'Basic Instinct', 'Showgirls', 'Starship Troopers' and 'Hollow man'. Basically, it is an in... read more

Film Journal - January 2014 (98 movies items)

"  If you're looking for a Hollywoodish movie, about the medieval ages, then this is not that film. Outside of The Name of The Rose, it's one of the more realistic movies, to take place in that period. That being said, it's a pretty decent, well made movie, that's not the most easiest film to watch."

"11.1. Ihan hienoa, että heti ensimmäisellä amerikkalaisella tuotannollaan Verhoeven perseilee tällä kertaa kommarivihan kustannuksella. Hauerin palkkasoturijoukko pukeutuu punaisiin ja vannoo jakavansa kaiken keskenään, mutta heti Hauerin sooloillessa asiat saavat kohtalokkaita käänteitä. Katsoja on joka tapauksessa näiden roistojen puolella, koska he ovat hahmoina huomattavasti värikkäämpiä kuin lordi sotilaineen. Lopussa ei valitettavasti nähdä vitsiä kruunaavaa punch linea "

"9.1. (DVD) En oikein lämpiä enää tässä iässä näille eeppisille ritarileffoille. Flesh & Bloodin syötti on kuitenkin sen todella, siis todella armoton ja Hollywoodille nöyristelemätön ajankuvaus, johon on tunnuttu tungetun kaikki keskiajan kurjuudet rutosta järjettömään murhaamiseen ja kristinuskon terroriin. Kukaan ei tässä elokuvassa ole hyvis, jopa Rutger Hauerin esittämä päähenkilö on sanansa syövä raiskaaja. Aika inhottava pätkä, mutta eipä tästä mitään ruus"

"9th January, on DVD Not a bad Verhoeven film, but it's not really all that special or memorable. It has fun, over-the-top moments but in terms of story it's a very typical medieval themed film. I don't believe that I'll get too much out of Flesh & Blood after this viewing and I doubt I'll see it again. But you'll definitely get some enjoyment out of this."

Incredible Movies That Should Be WAY More Famous (52 movies items)

" The film's title is an antiquity allusion to the phrase "sex and violence," and it fully lives up to that with an abundance of gore and perversion. This is probably my favourite period picture because it's an honest, low down, gritty view of the plague-ridden middle ages."

A Complete review of Paul Verhoeven's work (14 movies items)

" Cast : Rutger Hauer, Jennifer Jason Leigh What was it about? A band of medieval mercenaries take revenge on a noble lord who decides not to pay them by kidnapping the betrothed of the noble's son. As the plague and warfare cut a swathe of destruction throughout the land, the mercenaries hole up in a castle and await their fate. My two cents: It was another milestone in Verhoven's career since it was his first English-language film, the first movie he made outside the Netherlands"

"22.5 DVD Verhoevenin keskiaikakuvaus ei ole juuri millään tavalla eeppinen tai ylhäinen tapaus, sillä suurin osa elokuvasta koostuu lähinnä siitä, kuinka Rutger Hauer & kumppanit rellestävät keskiaikatyyliin, ja siitä kuinka Jennifer Jason Leighin saatanan tyhmä, tai mukavasti sanottuna naiivi neito ei osaa päättää renttu Rutgerin ja kouluttautuneemman Tom Burlinsonin välillä. Ihan jees oli, pidin siitä kuinka tästä ei juuri löydä hyviksiä tai pahiksia, ja tuo ns. pääos"

"9.8. Movie that's so underrated that it's making me mad. Very realistic portait (okay the last third is laughable but very entertaining stuff anyhow) of Medieval times. I've seen this about five times and I just love the way everybody in this movie are just as bad as the others. "

A good movie

“This is the last movie directed by Paul Verhoeven which I hadn't seen yet so, of course, I was really eager to watch it. For Verhoeven, it was also a milestone since it is the first movie he made outside the Netherlands and just before he went to Hollywood directing movies such as 'Robocop', 'Total Recall', 'Basic Instinct', 'Showgirls', 'Starship Troopers' and 'Hollow man'. Basically, it is an international production and you have the usual Verhoeven trademarks : Sex, Violence and Rutger Hauer. This time, the setting was the Medieval age and I think it was a great idea to mix this time period with this director style. Ok, I have to admit, the story was pretty thin and the whole thing was actually nothing great whatsoever but it was very entertaining and I really enjoyed it. To conclude, I” read more

Katsottuja elokuvia (108 movies items)

"Paul Verhoevenin ensimmäinen jenkkileffa Lihaa ja Verta on jäänyt melko pienelle huomiolle, mutta osoittautuu nyt katsottuna yllättävän mukiinmenväksi. Seikkailu poikkeaa ronskiudessaan mukavasti monista romanttisista ja sliipatuista ritarielokuvista. Kaunistelematonta väkivaltaa ja erotiikkaa sisältävä keskiaikakuvaus viihdyttävää hyvin pari tuntia, vaikka kokonaisuus jääkin tyhjänpäiväiseksi."

"Paul Verhoeven takes a crack at the violent n' bloody medieval sub genre where Rutger Hauer chops people up into little pieces and Jennifer Jason Leigh gets naked a lot. It's as excellent as it sounds. "
