    Raze is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience — and a superbly crafted film.

    Bell's performance is the best reason to see Raze.

    Quentin Tarantino showcased her bubbly personality (and ass-kicking dexterity) in 2007’s terrific gearhead horror movie, "Death Proof." Now, seasoned stuntwoman Zoë Bell gets a vehicle all her own—a disposable battle royal no-budgeter that’s immensely elevated by her presence.

    Ultimately, though, the lack of story and relentless suffering make Raze appealing for hard-core genre fans only.

    Josh C. Waller’s movie is just prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago.

    This ugly, dull and idiotic actioner doesn’t know if it wants be fun or grim. It winds up simply being deplorable exploitation.

    Battles are sickeningly brutal, and viewers who have no ethical problem with that may object to their sheer lack of imagination.

    An interesting concept of women who are kidnapped and made to fight in a bare knuckle tournament until only one survives.
    This isn't a campy
    film with modelesque girls slapping or pulling hair either. Its tough women who are literally beating the **** out of each other. Something different and something i applaud.
    However the film starts becoming repetitive and i feel more focus should have been made on the tournaments origins and its participates so that it breaks out of just being another death competition film.

    Although interesting in its own way, it is a tedious experience that I will never forget. Zoe Bell would be rather a good recommendation, but it is nothing too special. Expand
