Kevin Home Alone for adults with a Bonnieand Clyde ending (by Robertronin)
Didn't know much about Steven C. Miller because I'm not so into Horror. But then he makes also something like this film and therefor I like him. Imagine watching "Kevin Home Alone" Rated R. And Kevin is a mixture between MacGyver and Bruce Willis in Die Hard. Nicely played by the about 10 years old Ryan Hartwig, who really isn't speaking much.Dana Ashbrook played one of the bad guys, he and hes crew sometimes played a little bit "to soft", like in a comedy, so they spoiled the Thriller-feeling a bid. I mean there was a lag of acting between the bad guys and the <more>
family, something like:"The Desperate Hours 1955 " was missing. For the Rest I was surprised how good it was. Fabianne Therese is a good casting as well.
Such a terrifically done movie. One of the . Most underrated movies out there!
What did I just watch? (by bobmichigan1)
At first I thought I was watching a poor mans "B" movie with the typical torture the parents until they get what they need. By the end i was watching Home Alone 4 rated R style and zero jokes. This movie was downright brutal.This kid was awesome, now some of the acting is stale but the silence of the young man made this a better movie. The bad guys in this flick were also very good, they came in to get what they want and didn't waste our time torturing them but straight up killing.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for Saturday night popcorn flick. Turn off your brain and enjoy the action!
Lots of shot gun violence n booby-traps. Nice lil thriller. (by Fella_shibby)
I saw this first on a DVD in 2012. Was browsing the dvds n came across this title. Immediately searched IMDb n read some good reviews. Most reviewers have described this movie as Home Alone on steroids. Indeed. Add a lil of Rambo too. The plot is simple - a group of armed men attack a family looking for stolen money, the children hit back. Awesome flick. There's plenty of shotgun/gun violence, stabbing, bashing, limb breaking, hand skewering, and bloody booby-traps. This is a tense, suspenseful and violent movie nicely directed by Steven C. Miller n the cast has given decent performance. <more>
Ryan Hartwig the kid is creepy as hell with an anger issue. His role was wordless and he really nailed it. I have enjoyed Millers Automaton Transfusion n Silent Night, Deadly Night. Heard that Miller will b directing Escape Plan. Thats some good news.
Nothing really more to say then this is a very gory extreme R rated version of "Home Alone". I loved it. I say A. (by cosmo_tiger)
"We don't have to do this clean, you go down this list and kill them all, then you find my money. You got 48 hours." When a recently released criminal gets out of prison and returns to his life he notices that $500,000 of his money has been stolen. After finding out who took it he hires a group of hit men to get the money back. Things go fine until they reach a house with a boy who fights back. Based on the preview I was intrigued at this. It seemed like a movie I would like but thought it could go either way. I have to say this was a huge surprise to me. This is not a movie for <more>
everyone because it is very bloody and violent. The best and only way to describe this is that this is an over the top extreme violent version of "Home Alone". If that doesn't want to make you watch it then I don't know what else to say. To me this movie was very fun to watch and I really liked it, it a morbid way. These revenge movies like this are one of my favorite type of movies. Overall, a very over-the-top violent version of "Home Alone" that I loved but is not for everyone. I give it an A...I know but I really enjoyed it.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this film, having seen others I've been disappointed in from this production company. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised. The Aggression Scale was a lot like an adult version of Home Alone. The film was suspense-filled, keeping me at the edge of my seat waiting to see how these kids are going to handle everything. Watched with a friend who is very familiar with autistic children, and his reaction was very positive. The portrayal of the main character was spot on for the obsessive habits of an autism sufferer. The cinematography was expertly done, <more>
but the soundtrack left a little to be desired. All in all, I recommend this film highly.
A very good Action/Thriller! Highly recommend. (by Michael-Hallows-Eve)
This movie was one of those films that was a great surprise. I'd seen the trailer and read a little about this film but I wasn't expecting what I'd just seen. It was great from start to finish, the acting, the story especially and the action were all top notch. And Derek Mears played his part very well. It was one of those movies for me that I'd be very happy to watch again and again, and I'm glad I own it. The action is quite violent too, which for me is always a huge bonus. I'd put it in the same category as 'A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE' Viggo Mortensen . If <more>
you haven't seen this film, I highly recommend it. So I give it a solid 8 out of 10.
