    The Green Inferno is not exactly a feel-good film, but it gets a very particular job done.

    The Green Inferno will be gleefully offensive and unpalatable to mainstream audiences, who may be more similar to The Green Inferno’s victims than they’d like to think. No one could accuse Roth of lacking guts – even if he hasn’t found the perfect recipe for them.

    Izzo, who co-starred with Roth-the-actor in Aftershock, is a fine genre actress, standing out from a cast of blonde women with her naturalistic performance and signs of courage and initiative.

    Unfortunately, the unbridled shock value isn't matched by a similar investment in other ingredients that might have made this low rent B-movie worthwhile.

    Finish your popcorn early if you’re going to The Green Inferno, and save the bucket to barf in.

    The film is measured and executed effectively to satiate horror fans' bloodlust, yet its underlying messages are just so repugnant.

    Empty cynicism isn’t a substitute for well-reasoned critique, and Roth winds up looking more clueless than the so-called “social justice warriors” he’s trying to satirize.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Some college kids (social justice warriors) travel to Peru in order to protest miners cutting down trees while looking for precious minerals. The students put themselves in harm's way as the miners have armed guards, but the tech-savvy SJWs protect themselves by live streaming the whole event via their cell phones. They were a smashing success and are soon trending over Twitter worldwide. As they are departing the country, their plane crashes into the jungle. The liberal do-gooders are greeted by the local Indian tribe who teach them a lesson in multiculturalism. Soon, the great liberators return (in the form of White men with bulldozers and rifles...kinda like Rainforest Schmainforest when Cartman was rescued from the green hell), but are too late to save more than one of the bleeding-hearts. A similar formula to the jungle-cannibal films popular in the late 70s/early 80s (the best being: Massacre in Dinosaur Valley, Eaten Alive!, Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, Jungle Holocaust, Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals, and Mountain of the Cannibal God). Very strange there was minimal nudity (the Indians were even prudish) despite rather grisly depiction of torturous violence. Expand

    Hope you have a strong stomach for this one. Extremely gory. The ending was ok if you believe in forgiveness.

I know this is a movie that will disgust most people. I get that. But some of us really enjoy watching stupid college kids get brutally murdered. I don't know why. I don't question it. So if you're like me and you get a huge thrill out of excessive blood and gore, then I think you will enjoy this film. There are some very creative death scenes here. And with Howard Berger handling the special effects, you know there won't be any pulled punches. There is one scene in particular where a fat guy gets his eyes and tongue pulled out and his limbs hacked off one by one. Then his torso and head are baked and eaten by the entire tribe. If that sounds like a good time to you, then what are you waiting for? Go see this movie with a bunch of friends and laugh your ass off. Expand

    Hilarious movie. Because it's funny? No, because it's so uneven and badly made that you'll keep wondering what the hell they were thinking.Hilarious movie. Because it's funny? No, because it's so uneven and badly made that you'll keep wondering what the hell they were thinking. Here's an attempt. Eli Roth clearly loves horror movies and has watched many of them. He however doesn't seem to have to skill to either bring a homage or a twist to the horror/gore tropes he seems so infatuated with. Having a gruesome ritual execution and then following it with a farty poop joke (including cartoon noises) requires a lot of skill to make it work. Here, it doesn't, it just comes off as clunky. As with all Roth movies, many characters a cynical, and they certainly are all stupid. Some moments are pretty creative, but usually ruined by the following silly slapstick. The low quality of pretty much every aspect doesn't result in a bad movie. Most of the time you'll be looking at the screen thinking either "wait, what?" or "eew", which is better than many other recent gore/horror movies. Lastly, Eli Roth, your wife can't act for **** Expand

I have watched tons of gore films in my life and I think I know how to comment on one.
    I've seen The Green Inferno a couple of weeks ago with my colleagues who are eager to watch it. At the beginning of the film, I got this idea that it looked really similar to Cannibal Holocaust.
    Blood and brutality is there. The creativity of the whole setting is there. What it lacks is the dialogue and the storyboard that'll grip you by the throat.

The Green Inferno is a interesting movie and could have became one of the better horror films in years . But it's not. It seems Eli Roth lost his way in this film . There are two scenes in this horror flick that really ruin the whole entire movie. And the ending ruins what was left of the Green Inferno. If this movie was handled by another director , it would have been a classic. Expand
