A woman (Zoe Bell) is abducted and brought to an underground lair, where she is forced to fight other innocent victims for the amusement of unseen spectators.
" "Raze" is a sweaty, queasy, bruising experience - and a superbly crafted film. "
" Sad to say, director Josh C. Waller and his crew don't deliver the goods. At least Waller knows what he's got in Bell. "
" Girl fight! If that phrase makes your pulse quicken, Raze may be the movie for you. Or, it may cure you forever of the desire to see women growl, bite, and brawl. "
" If you can stand to watch this movie -- a big if -- there is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more. "
" "Raze" is a sadist's idea of entertainment, mixed-martial-arts without the art, misogyny without the guilt. "
" A women-in-prison flick hawking its exploitation wares more to sadists than sex fiends. "
" Prurient nonsense, a film only a couple of notches up from the women-in-prison films that were popular years and years ago. "
" The entertainment value of the violence trumps most of the larger meaning, and the film exploits its characters just as they do their prisoners. "
" The lack of story and relentless suffering make "Raze" appealing for hard-core genre fans only. "
" The performances and plotting are so impoverished that the picture deserves to be called "The From Hunger Games," and then promptly forgotten. "
" There's enough craft and intelligence at work here that you can't dismiss "Raze" as meaningless sadism, but not nearly enough to make it worth the unpleasantness of actually watching it. "
" This brutally monotonous actioner centers around an all-female fight-to-the-death contest, but viewers of either gender may find themselves dying of boredom. "
" This ugly, dull and idiotic actioner doesn't know if it wants be fun or grim. It winds up simply being deplorable exploitation. "
