  • Summary: A script that doesn't carry the movie that much. The movie has some really slow scenes but normally i like slow scenes because it's building up to something, well not this movie.

Creepy family movie #3186

  • Excerpt: Stoker is from the director Park chan-wook, a truly incredible director, who made one of my favorite foreign films of all time: Oldboy. Even though Stoker is not as good as Oldboy, it manages to still be a very impressive movie. It is ripe with things I like to see: Troubled characters, philosophical dialogue and the question of sanity. The overall look of the film is pleasing to the eyes, as well.

  • Summary: A striking, artistically directed and well acted piece. It's dark and cold presentation is alluring. At first I thought these aspects were to enhance the meaning behind the internal nature of the characters. But alas, I found nothing beneath the surface of the shiny exterior. The film left me cold and wanting more from it's dry story and characters. Such a shame, because I did enjoy the style and performances.

Review: Stoker

MikePA, FilmCrave
19 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Stoker is a competently made, occasionally creepy film that needed richer substance and a compelling final act to make it a good film. It's slow burning and very poorly written. The script doesn't provide these strangely fascinating characters with much justice, and ultimately sends the film into a state of blandness and predictability in the second half with an ending that's rather stupid.

Stoker review

Daniel Corleone, FilmCrave

  • Excerpt: "What a tragic waste of life." From the director of the Vengeance trilogy. Compared to his trio of a masterpiece which this critic admired, the violence here is tamed and toned down. The father of India Stoker's (Mia Wasikowska) passes away on her birthday so Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) takes care of her. India is introduced to Richard's brother Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never met before. Charlie tries to connect with India, but she resists.

  • Summary: A weak script threatens to sink Stoker throughout. The storyline is at times silly, confused, and forgettable. However, in the hands of Chan-wook Park, it's the striking, sumptuous visuals and brilliant editing that elevates the film and makes it worth watching. Not only that, but Kidman and, in particular, Wasikowska give delicious performances that are impossible to turn away from. It's all style over very little substance, but what style it is!

Beautiful, but empty

  • Excerpt: Chan-wook Park is an amazing director. Oldboy alone is evidence that the man is profoundly talented, and he brings it on full force in Stoker. The emotion, the music and the performances in Stoker and all of his other films is shockingly good and borderline perfect. Park’s direction is in fact so perfect in Stoker that it’s surprisingly easy to ignore how awful the script is. Yes, this script is awful, it uses tired cliché’s and still manages to make little to no sense.

  • Summary: Close to a masterpiece. Fans of Dario Argento will love this. Striking visual imagery and a well rounded story with some freaky characters

  • Summary: - Stoker - Totally a film festival piece & loved it, mash up of 'Gothic' 'The Others' & 'Natural Born Killers'. Great film that keeps you watching, thinking and guessing. Wonderful to watch something that hasnt come out of Hollywood normality, and with a better ending.

Arty farty boring horror!

  • Summary: Whilst dwelling on social taboos it is in no way related to any issue of our or any other times nor based on any logical concept, dripping along subjecting the audience to sleep injecting never ending dialogs unpleasantly interrupted by explosions of brainless violence.
