I have not yet seen Haneke's original ""Funny Games"" made back in 97, so I really had nothing to go by in terms of a good remake. I watched this film with a fresh mind, not knowing at all what it would be like. "Funny Games" is about a family of three getting taken hostage by two young/mentally unstable young men.

The film starts off happier than ever, with the son and father getti... read more

Very enjoyable film.... I thought it would be sort of cliché, but nope. generally quite chilling, well done and fascinating. I have not seen the first version, but I sure will now. Both "bad-guys" where very convincing as cold blooded psyckos. I especially got a buzz from the parts reminding the viewer that your watching fiction, but what is really the difference? Weird how you sort of feel "on t... read more

What was the point of remaking EXACTLY the same movie (it is said that the house even has the same dimensions) ? Who cares when it is directed by the great Haneke?!? Since I am a huge fan of the original version (as a matter of fact, it is one of my favorite movies of all time), of course, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I liked this remake a lot. Of course, I have to admit it, it ... read more

"18.2 Periaattessa sama elokuva kuin -97 tehty alkuperäinen, joten en miinusviivaa tälläkertaa anna kun Haneken typerästä ideasta tehdä oma elokuvansa uudelleen. Alkuperäinenkään ei kuitenkaan suurimpiin suosikkeihini kuulu, joten mistään klassikon raiskauksesta ei voida puhua."

"31.1 Kuukausi vaihtui huonon leffan merkeissä. Tää ei vakuuttanut nyt sitten oikeen millään. Sekopää jäbät jotka tuli vittuilemaan Naomille ja sen perheelle oli vaan jotenki naurettavia. Ei ollu kuumotusta eikä oksetusta. Epäonnistunut fiilis ja monta todella tylsää kohtausta."

"Funny Games U.S. grabs you by the balls from the outset and doesn't leave you go 'til the end credits roll.

Funny Game U.S. = Tension

“Funny Games U.S. grabs you by the balls from the outset and doesn't leave you go 'til the end credits roll. Haneke toys with the viewer, tapping into the contemporary fears people have of senseless acts of violence that are commited. I can easily imagine this scenario taking place in America.

All of the acting performances are outstanding, but Naomi Watts and Michael Pitt are utterly convincing.

Haneke's trademark dead-pan, matter-of-fact camera works very effectively throughout as it intensifies the helplessness of the victims while, at the same time, keeping the viewer outside the story as a sort of impotent mute observer who is forced to witness the taumatic events. The static camera therefore creates much of the tension, adding to the slowly unfurling mind-fuck wrou” read more

A very good movie

“What was the point of remaking EXACTLY the same movie (it is said that the house even has the same dimensions) ? Who cares when it is directed by the great Haneke?!? Since I am a huge fan of the original version (as a matter of fact, it is one of my favorite movies of all time), of course, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I liked this remake a lot. Of course, I have to admit it, it was rather pointless to make the same movie again (I really wonder why Haneke thought it was a good idea) but it remains a great story and I loved it almost as much as the amazing original version. The tone was identical, visually, it was really similar (I still don't think it was really shot-by-shot the same though) and the acting was really strong. That's probably one of the few issues here comp” read more
