What it's about:

Top cover girl and fashion model, Jennifer Tree (Elisha Cuthbert) has it all – beauty, fame, money and power. But someone out there has been watching and waiting, and wants her in the worst way. Out alone at a charity event in Soho, Jennifer is drugged and taken. Held captive in a cell, Jennifer is subjected to a series of terrifying, life-threatening tortures that could only be conceived by a twisted, sadistic mind.

What the critics say:

"[Joffe] brings an artful video-grunge look, and not much else, to this Saw clone."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"A spirit-sapping exercise in female degradation fantasy."
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

"The controversy may have piqued the curiosity of horror fans but the film is undeserving of any further attention, managing to be both nastily unpleasant and laughably ludicrous."
Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail

"Rarely have I found myself so uncomfortable viewing anything over such an extended period of time. There's nothing redeemable here. It's not tense or scary; it's just demented."
James Berardinelli, ReelViews

"The film's clunky point-of-view shift and obviously re-shot climax are likely to have you choking in disbelief."
Nigel Floyd, Time Out

"This isn't filmmaking it's shock treatment."
Jim Hemphill,
A fashion model and a chauffeur are kidnapped and held hostage in a small room by a serial killer.

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
