Good idea/poor execution

I had low expectations for this, and after watching it, I really just think they should have put more effort & money into it.

You won't see the gore that was in the first 2 movies, mostly just splattering blood, but the story and change of scenery was a nice twist.

The lower budget is evident. I thought the acting was fine except for a couple over-the-top performances. The first half set up was good, but the second half just seemed rushed. Maybe they were running out of money.

I thought they should have expanded on the new Las Vegas Hunting Club set up a lot more. Was it purely for betting purposes? Were the Hunters paid to perform or were they paying to kill as in the first movies?

The first kill had potential, but it felt unfinished... The second kill made no sense at all. The third one screamed for a higher budget...

Someone once said that they don't understand why they are remaking great movies, what they should be doing is remaking not so good movies. This is a candidate for the latter.

Rather enjoyable if flawed effort

Heading off for a bachelor party, a group of friends decide to leave their Las Vegas party for another gathering hosted by some friends only to learn that they've stumbled upon a group of torturers using the strip as their hunting grounds and must fight them off to get away alive.

This here was an enjoyable enough entry in the series. One of the more enjoyable parts to this one is the more enhanced and believable outcome of the society featured here that's quite thrilling. There's some nice work here detailing how they come about getting involved with the club as the opening party makes for a solid grouping of depravity and sleaze that works well in tying this into the rest of the series, and features a great way to bring about their eventual kidnapping and delivery into the system. That in itself leads to the film's greatest aspect in how this ties the torture system into the current location by showcasing the torture room as an attraction to gamble on for the patrons observing everything happening on a stage, and that fits into the location so well that it really adds nicely to the film by making these torture scenes much more engaging than they should be. As that also leads into the main part of the film which is the torture scenes in front of the patrons, that leaves this one with some pretty chilling scenes here with the facial and the insect swarm featuring some rather enjoyable elements. The finale, with its charge into their underground society which presents not only more brutality but a few rather ingenious twists thrown in as well which makes for a rather rousing and much more enjoyable outing than expected. There are a few problems here, mainly in the fact that like the rest of the films in the series its first half is dominated by the scenes outside the compound as it falls into endless scenes of them wandering around Vegas trying to find the missing people that it really doesn't even get to their society until the final half hour so the pacing to this is really off. Likewise, there's the fact that this one tends to throw itself into twists rather for the sake of ensuring a rather surprising aspect to this one, and it's piling on here simply for that reason. None of the real twists here are built upon doing this for any real reason other than this factor, and it's quite infuriating to get thrown another twist about what's happening simply for the manner of just getting that twist. Alongside some rather dodgy kills that look silly in execution, these here are what really hold this one down.

Rated R: Extreme Graphic Language, Graphic Violence, Nudity and drug use.

A disappointing end to the series.

I have watched all three Hostel movies back to back in the past day. I found parts 1 and 2 were entertaining with some memorable ideas.

I found this one to be lacking the depth or interest that the first two have. Even the deaths seemed a little disappointing. Some of them just looked cheap and one of the most surprising things occurred to someone who was already dead.

The change of location also did not help the viewing. Slovakia was a an interesting setting. Las Vegas (the little we saw of it) just wasn't. I feel that the artificial nature of Las Vegas does mirror how much was lost from the series. The hunting club seemed devalued by the way it turned into a gambling show.

There are a lot of good ideas and 'what ifs' based around both this movie and the series. I would have loved this sequel to provide something new but in the end it just did not deliver like the first two movies did.

It does get better as it goes along. The third act has nearly all the best moments of the movie.

This was by no means a bad movie. It just lacked execution (in more ways than one). I can see why Eli Roth decided not to do it and also why it went straight to DVD.

4 stars. The last act earned 2 of those.
