    Director Joel Schumacher directed "Batman and Robin" so it doesn't come as a surprise that this movie was going to fail miserably. The end result is sadistic violence and a great lack of mystery and suspense.

    Think it's bad now? Wait until it's sanitized for network viewing.

  1. Voyeuristically wallows in the sadistic violence it professes to deplore. What hypocrisy!

    Almost as degrading as any unmarked video you can buy in the back alleys of Manila, and, in its pseudo-significance and arty pretension, it's a lot less honest. I'm heartily sorry I had to poison an entire evening with it.

    The moral contortions of 8MM seem especially bogus, a sadomasochistic peep show booth pretending to be a confessional.
