Jeesh who knew MMT would be such a hot topic of debate!

I still maintain something did not sit well with me. I suppose CGI blood does work in certain circumstances but the only circumstance I can think of is one that resembles Sin City and MMT felt more realistic and less deserving of CGI.....I dont know I'm just talking jibberish.

Igloo Keeper.......genius.

Matt- The beheading was pretty awesome but who knew one blow to the head could knock it off! I liked how she was still blinking afterwards, it reminded me of a chicken.

BJC wise words my friend, and the blood slipping scene was fantastic. Those subway floors always get slippery when it rains so I can only imagine the epic sort of falls that would happen when blood is involved.

I think someone said "okay, lets just use CGI and call it a day" and then someone hired an awesome art director to come up with some really intense shit. thats the only thing i love about this film. if i think of cgi as more of an art tool and less of a copout, it doesn't bug me as much. and watching people slip in their own blood is hilarious

I read the short story way back and it is pretty fantastic and slightly different from the somewhat nonsensical one in this film.

I personally liked it, not loved it. Vinnie Jones was super bad ass and the Kitamura direction was fantastic and the beheading was one of cinemas dopest!

As for the CGI blood...well, I think the CGI blood looked very cool within the style of the film, it almost matched in a hyper realistic way, how the film is shot and how it looks.

Now, with that said, if you are going to have this crazy CGI blood, that actually has a cool look within an ultra stylized film, then just make it all CGI! When you show blood on people, or on the ground and it looks real, it really makes the CGI blood all the more ugly.

That's all, great review as always!

I read this story in Clive Barker's comic series, Tapping the Vein. It was eerie, suspenseful, and lush with horrific images. I agree that it does not translate well over to film. For one, the story relies very little on action. Film thrives on movement. The nightmarish quality is lost in translation. A poor choice for an adaptation.

It's OK Jaded I remember reading quite a few other reviews that raved about it too!

I guess it was the story that had the most problems, I felt it kind of dragged on. The kill scenes just felt really over the top to me which is in part due to the CGI blood. I did find bits about the final show down pretty good though- the hook snagging flesh here and there and when the knife went through Leon and dripped some nice blood onto his face.

I guess this one is very hit or miss, I haven't talked to many people that thought it was so-so, you know? I love Clive Barker as well so maybe my expectations were a little too high. I guess I'll just never understand the purpose of CGI blood! It always gets me! (in the heart) : (

Andre - I'm going to be one of those people that loved this flick.

I even ranked it my #2 horror movie of 2008.

I guess I was biased being from Clive Barker and directed by Ryuhei Kitamura. Vinnie Jones muteness, his serial killer order and quoting from my review...

"In the climatic final action sequence, the camera moves from in the subway car, to out of it, then back in all the while still capturing the gory fight."

I can forgive CGI gore if done well. I thought the characters, story and kill scenes were all top notch.

I too thought it was very overrated. People really hyped this one up. That ending was SO rushed and yeah, the CGI blew.



Thank God! I was getting nervous.
