Topic: Eden Lake - 2008
Well I finally watched Eden Lake which I bought on dvd a few weeks and loved this flick. This film was 1000 times better than Them(aka iLLs).
I felt sorry for the couple in it like I did for the film The Strangers and Funny Games remake.
Eden Lake stars the sexy red head Kelly Reilly(from Pride and Prejudice) and actor Michael Fassbender(from 300) as a couple who on a romantic weekend getaway who encounter a young group of thugs. These punk kids in it would have gotten their asses beaten in real life if they did that shit to me I know that for certain lol.
The couple are terrorized and beaten and tortured in many ways. She fights back though til the end.
I didn't like the fact that the parents at the end killed her instead of helping her. So what if she killed some of those punk kids. They deserved it and she was just fighting back and trying to survive.
I know, I know......it's just a movie......it's just a movie......
BUT, if I was in the woods or a lake with the woman I loved, I certainly would have carried a pistol or 2 with me and hid one in the car where nobody else would find it and keep the other gun on me at all times or at least have my 8" knive with brass knuckles on the end of it with me at all times even while swimming lol.
The couple should have gathered some weapons together....anything could have been used like a large think piece of wood or something from their handbag that was left. Even a broken beer bottle would have helped them out.
Anyway, enough of my rant lol about the thugs cause it is only a movie lol.....
And a good movie at that.
I give this film a 8 out of 10 rating.
