Lack of penis violence aside, REVENGE was a fun watch. Quick pace, good acting, silly characters, overstylized art direction that was equally exhausting and fun, beautiful locations, continuity errors, minor nudity (both male and female), a fair amount of blood. One thing that did irritate me was the television in the guys house. Multiple times throughout the movie, the television was turned on and every time it was just something bland like a car race or an infomercial. If the filmmakers had been wearing their thinking caps they would have, earlier in the film, put on nature films about wolves or alligators or other predators attacking prey...then later at the end of the film, during the final showdown, they should have put on something stressful, like the dinner scene/chase scene from the original THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. Just my two cents.
Not the greatest thing ever made, but still a fun watch. Check it out.
