    Watched it a week ago. Not bad, good laugh and fine as long as you take it for what it is a grindhouse styled movie. Its just the post war T55 (?) Tank that gets me, surely they could have found something more period.

    Wake me up when it's all over.

    Thanks to someone on here I'd seen the red-band trailer a couple of weeks and thought "yep, I'm watching that". I saw Renfield at the cinema a couple of days later which had a 15-rated version of the trailer and oof, it just felt so neutered.

    It's showing at a cinema near me next week so I look forward to catching it. I really enjoyed Rare Exports so anticipate having a lot of fun with this.

    Saw it a few months back. As said at the time: It’s totally preposterous, and for the first half bloody good fun with a set of ludicrously gory setpieces. It lost some momentum for me in its second half though, especially with a very CG heavy finale. Couldn’t escape the sense that it was also very clearly (cynically?) designed for international commercial appeal. But there’s enough fun stuff in it to have a damn good time as well.

    It’s pure ‘three star’ fodder overall. I definitely think it’s a film that has been made more as an obvious (rare?) export ‘product’, but as said there’s still good old-fashioned cartoonish ultra violence to enjoy despite the somewhat cynical nature of the project.

    when I watched the trailer the first, I quickly checked was it filmed in Wicklow lol
