  • 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.

Stoker

Christel, videoland

  • Excerpt: Drie vreemde, perfectionistische en emotioneel verwaarloosde personages komen samen, zodat er een paradox ontstaat van aantrekking maar ook afkeer, maar gezellig wordt het er niet op. Doet me een beetje denken aan Hitchcock. Er zit veel symboliek in de film en deze mysterieuze film heeft een psychologische diepgang. Thriller/horror met enkele onsmakelijke beelden maar dat overheerst gelukkig niet. Love it or hate it. Ik vond het best een okee film.

Stoker

  • Excerpt: Stoker is een thriller met een bijna filmhuis-achtige ervaring. In ons gezelschap waren de meningen verdeeld, maar persoonlijk vond ik het een interessante afwisseling op andere films van de laatste tijd. Eigenlijk klopt alles, maar je moet als kijker wel openstaan voor het vreemde script, de curieuze wijze van filmen en andere eigenaardigheden.

Great imagery let down by poor story

  • Excerpt: A warped coming-of-age tale, this has a lot of style, beautiful imagery, disturbed characters and unsettling performances - exactly what you would expect from Park. The story itself is something of a mixed bag though - with the central mystery as to the backstory of Charlie feeling a little flat - though Park almost makes up for this with a tightly edited sequence that reveals all.

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
15 June 2013
  • 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

Looneymanthegreat, FilmCrave

  • 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.
