Mini Film Review: The Green Inferno, directed by Eli Roth. ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿ‘Ž

So I finally got around to seeing this. I really wanted to like it, as I’m a huge fan of the genre. I also rolled my eyes at the accusations of racism hurled at this film when it first came out. That said, this film is hot garbage and Eli Roth should be ashamed of himself for pissing on the cannibal genre with this weak attempt at an homage.

The Green Infernoย is pointless and only serves as a vehicle for Roth to “torture” his audience with what amounts to a wasted effort in what could have been a decent film. Why Roth decided to torture/kill the “good” characters and leave the “bad” ones alone, with absolutely no logic or payoff behind it, is anyone’s guess, but at the end of the film it leaves you pissed off. If that was his intent it worked.

This film isn’t even a pimple on the ass of much superior cannibal films, mainly because those films have a great story, subtext and plot twists that actually work.

For example, Cannibal Holocaust has one of the best morals of all time at the end of the film, which gives licence to its brutality. This one? Pure wannabe garbage by a director who’s ego precedes his talent and absolutely no rhyme or reason to the story other than: oohh! Cannibals!

Lame. Avoid.

    • Thanks! I agree and was mostly disappointed because I think the film had tons of potential to be awesome. It was going great right up until a certain point and then it all falls apart. I appreciate the comment!
