Summary: Carnage is compelling with smart, funny and sharp dialogue with little Polanski's direction help. All four its leads performance are overrated. I have to say that I hate the ending, don't show us the rodent, I have phobia.
Summary: Carnage suffers from a bad script that is simply unfunny. The actors are quite good and know how to play there role, but they cannot save this 71 minute long film from feeling like a total drag. This is also the first polanski film that I have not enjoyed.
Summary: Who's Afraid of the God of Carnage? would be an apt title for this film since it is reminiscent of the Virginia Woolf play/film. Any film that takes place almost entirely in one room has to be be based on a play, and Carnage is no exception. The four characters occasionally tread into the hallway and there's a trip to the bathroom, and that's it. The stage lends itself well to prolonged dialogues and dramatic monologues, but film demands some action.
Summary: A pitch-black, hilarious upending of social conventions. The entire cast is exceptional and John C. Reilly is especially entertaining, and the script (based off of the French play "God of Carnage"), is whip-smart and Polanski's direction is as usual exceptional, (although he lets the film speak for itself, there isn't much here that would discern it from other great directors, he lets the acting and writing to the heavy lifting).
Summary: I gotta say , at the start I thought the movie will be supper boring . The first 15 min was boring but finally it turned out to be really funny. Haven't seen this kinda comedy film in ages ! One Apartment , 2 couples fighting over something so silly and all with the phone and hamster amazing . Good actors and their acting and Kate was clearly the best among them. Nice directing by Roman and Really good screenplay too . Over all a different kinda fun movie !
Summary: Carnage should have gotten meaner. Essentially a One Act play, the film features some fun acting in what is a black comedy, a bit of a critique of hypocrisy from Roman Polanski to the modern United States Culture that has banished him. Jodie Foster goes for the extreme the most, and comes away with the best of the 4 main performances.
Summary: Two couples gather for a civilized discussion about an incident between their young sons. Before it's over, barriers drop and things get real. It's a strong cast (Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, John C. Reilly, Christopher Waltz), but with the exception of Reilly, they aren't known for their comic chops (and neither is director Roman Polanski). Making it worse, the script isn't funny.
Summary: Its embarrassing. It fails dismally. I can see how it could have worked as a play but unlike say , the importance of being earnest, its fails horribly in the movie version. The jovial twists and turns of the play do not work on the screen version.
Summary: Im surprise Its getting Mixed ratings. This movie was actually pretty good. I like the dialog & acting was pretty great also. The script was a bit juvenile at times but it was actually able to keep my attention all the way through & this typically wouldnt be the type of movie I'd go for. It reminded me a lot of phone-booth only this is like the House Arrest version lol. I kept waiting for them to just leave but it never happens lol.
