Keanu Reeves is one of those actors that you either like him or hate him. I really am the type to lean more towards like with him and frankly that’s the ONLY reason I decided to watch this movie. I must admit I went into it not knowing anything about this movie, just making the assumption that if Keanu was in it, it can’t be that bad. I was dreadfully wrong.
When I saw in the beginning that this was written and directed by Eli Roth, I have to admit, I groaned a little and thought “aw crap… I’m probably going to hate this now…”
And as expected, I shut it off about half way through. There are very few movies that I have intentionally shut off part way through out of complete discomfort; Tusk being one of them (sorry Kevin Smith and Justin Long, I love you both, just not in association with Tusk). Anyhow, out of pure morbid curiosity, I turned it back on and skipped to the last 3 min of the movie, which resulted in exactly the complete lack of surprise as I might have expected. So here’s the gist, there’s this dude who decides to help out these two young women, after some very unrelenting sexual advances, he makes a VERY poor decision and hooks up with them. Unnecessarily long story short, they completely ruin his career, destroy his home and more over, obliterate his life.

If Eli Roth was going for making the viewer terribly uncomfortable, he has succeeded with flying colors; congratulations sir. Under no circumstance do I recommend this movie, at all, like, at ALL. That’s it, terrible movie.
