A good movie

4 years, 9 months ago at May 4 14:16
Obviously, since it was the last movie directed by Paul Verhoeven which I hadn't seen yet, of course, I was really eager to watch it. For Verhoeven, it was definitely a milestone since it was the first movie he made outside the Netherlands and it was just before he went to Hollywood directing such movies like 'Robocop', 'Total Recall', 'Basic Instinct', 'Showgirls', 'Starship Troopers' and 'Hollow... read more

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

“Obviously, since it was the last movie directed by Paul Verhoeven which I hadn't seen yet, of course, I was really eager to watch it. For Verhoeven, it was definitely a milestone since it was the first movie he made outside the Netherlands and it was just before he went to Hollywood directing such movies like 'Robocop', 'Total Recall', 'Basic Instinct', 'Showgirls', 'Starship Troopers' and 'Hollow man'. Basically, it was quite an ambitious international production and you had the usual Verhoeven trademarks : Sex, Violence and good old Rutger Hauer. This time, the setting was the Medieval age and I thought it was a great idea to mix this time period with the style of this particular director. Alright, I have to admit it, the story was actually pretty thin and the whole thing was actually no” 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. "
