A Stunning Knock Out of a Horror Film.
Verified purchase
Absolutely stunning film. Nearly perfect. This is a horror film that fits in with other films about truly evil groups that do horrible things to others, mostly as captives. Hostel, Borderland, The Nameless (Sin Nombre), 13 Tzameti, Crimson Rivers, Frontier(s), Martyrs and above all Salo are some of the other denizens of this breed. This genre is perhaps the darkest of all horror genres. Raze fits exactly in with this style, and does it exactly how it should be done.

This is stuntwoman Zoë Bell's film first of all. And she pulls it off with complete authenticity. She may have a narrow range as an actress. I don't ever expect to see her in a fluffy role. But damn! Here? She's all caged steel. But more than that... the plot works too. While it hits many notes from brutality to revenge. It never cops out. And the end works. It provides the slightest sliver of hope in a world black as midnight. The other actresses all do serious duty as well. I discovered this purely by accident, but I haven't been this jazzed about a film in quite a while. Hail Zoë! (And thanks to Tarantino for discovering her back in Kill Bill.)

Zoe Bell is absolutely awesome! Did you enjoy her in Death Proof?
Verified purchase
If you enjoy Zoe Bell amazingly awesome skills in the underrated "Death Proof" movie that was made by Quentin Tarantino then you absolutely need to buy/rent this RAZE movie! I first heard about this movie last year and at first I wasn't expecting too much from this RAZE film because I figured it was going to be one of those "straight to the bin" movie type of thing but I am glad to be proven wrong.

The main actress who pretty much steals the entire show/movie is the wonderfully talented and hot ZOE BELL! Please visit google.com if it isn't too much work for you because Zoe Bell is the best Stunt Woman/Actress I have ever seen today. This movie will keep you watching and guessing until the very end due because you will be thinking that you will know what happens next but end up being completely off/wrong! Very VERY few movies pull of that special moment where you can fool the audience/viewer into thinking they can predict what will happen next but they end up being wrong.

Just watch the darn trailer for this movie before you rent/buy it and if that trailer does not interest you, then you are possibly better off watching Fast and Furious or Transformers or whatever big hollywood movies that people love so much these days lol.

Anyways, what are you waiting for? Rent or buy this movie now! Support this film not because it needs attention but because it is an awesome/unique movie that will keep you glued until the credits are rolling!

Women fighting? I'm so there!
Verified purchase
This is a gender reversal of the 90's "forced to fight" films. A bunch of women wake up in a building and discover that they must fight each other to the death or their families will be gunned down (the loser of the fights also have their families killed). The champion so far is the delectable Zoe Bell (DEATH PROOF - 2007), but she and the final fighter have a plan to turn the tables on their captors, who broadcast the bouts on the internet to high-paying customers. This is a bloody, violent throwback film that works thanks to stuntwoman/actress Bell, who is not a traditional beauty, but has the chops to pull it off and make the film a winner. I would like to see her do more films because she knows how to handle herself. And I like a woman who can do that.

Not what you expect
Verified purchase
This is an a-typical revenge/action thriller in that unlike other, similar "underground fight club" genre flicks, "Raze" ups the ante by providing very little backstory for either the antagonists or the protagonists. There are glimpses of backstory - the way a few of the female fighters are identified is shown in brief flashbacks - but the majority of the film takes place in the present. "Raze" is brutally realistic in its fight choreography. It's uncomfortable at times to watch, and not because all the fighters here are female. It's the dark nihilism at its heart. There is no happy ending, no reason for hope, no light at the end of the proverbial long, dark tunnel. It's kill or be killed. Survival is the only goal.

Last woman standing...
Verified purchase
Great movie! Great martial arts action all the way. The casting was wise, 90% of the fighting techniques believeable, but really wasn't sure about the ending though. How you went though all that and finally fought your way out and then the first thing you do as you see day light or freedom is to throw your only gun down then started to run in the clear opening? But yet love the movie.

Fast-paced, vicious, and absolutely one to watch.
Verified purchase
The movie is not for the faint of heart, but it's definitely worth watching if you're not too squeamish. This movie is basically a tournament where 50(ish) women are forced to fight one another to protect their loved ones. No surprise that the story isn't Earth shattering, so the best part of the movie is the fights. They're very raw, so you won't find those silly pretty fighting moves, there's blood and lots of it. If violence and badass ladies don't deter you from watching a good movie then you're going to love it.

Thought I would enjoy movie, - - - women punching f**k out of each other!
Wrong! as you get to know the characters you gradually empathaise
with each of the 8 contestants, & think to yourself? waste of life for - - bets/pleasure.
Twist in plot threw me! from then on,- - gore & bloody scenes of retribution!
Final scene, - - - Rip off from GLADIATOR.!!!
Well acted/directed/good cast.
Enjoyed Bonus Feature!
Changed my mind! Rate 5 stars! Will watch again at future date.
