Movies in Review: "Straw Dogs"

I was very intrigued by the trailer. I was even more interested when the film started because it wasn’t totally playing out how it appeared in the trailer. The story was playing out well at first, and I was excited to see how it was going to turn out in the end. Unfortunately before the end could get here, things just starting to get weird. There were way too many underlying stories getting introduced in the film and none of them really seemed to lead to anywhere.

For example, it was never really clear what kind of relationship Amy and Charlie use to have. This former relationship also got more confusing to me when the gang bang happened…wtf. But before any of that went down, what was the purpose of the strip tease window scene? Somebody tell me what Niles actually did wrong or was he just being accused? I really feel like I missed something and none of it got answered by the time the credits started rolling. This movie rolled into a bloody mess that had no rhyme or reason. Counting all the corpse on the floor…really…smh. All of this could have been concluded easily if David and Amy would have drove the 40 min to the hospital, instead of getting involved in an 1hr long battle with the locals over an accused sex offender…smh. This movie should have stupid written all over it instead of the word “thrilling” which is used to describe it…D!

I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money.
