    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.

    The stark prison Sabrina and a half dozen final contestants inhabit make the torture chambers of Hostel look inviting, but to their credit (perhaps), screenwriter Robert Beaucage and director Josh Waller never sugarcoat their grim tale.

    You get the feeling that if there were less fighting and more character work, not only would Bell knock it out of the park, but Raze would be a better, more interesting movie.

    The entertainment value of the violence trumps most of the larger meaning, and the film exploits its characters just as they do their prisoners.

    "Raze" 10 Scale Rating: 2.0 (Awful) ...

    The Good: A few of the fight scenes were decent enough. The violence is top notch, despite being purposely over-the-top.

    The Bad: There isn't anything resembling a story here. At all. The motivations behind the antagonists were silly at best and made zero sense. Horrid acting almost all around as only Tracie Thoms was adequate. I understand what they were trying to do, but they missed the mark by a wide margin. The ending makes the entire film even more pointless than it already was. the attempted "twist" was just stupid and random.

    A generic exploitation action kinda film. It was ok. It's definitley not the worst of the year by FAR. But, it could have been better. I willA generic exploitation action kinda film. It was ok.

    An interesting concept of women who are kidnapped and made to fight in a bare knuckle tournament until only one survives.

    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.
