Bryan Lienesch81 - The only thing holding back Eli Roth's gore-a-palooza is the constant barrage of oversimplistic stereotypes. There are no characters here, but rather a series of judgments in human form.

Dan O'Neill65 - Hostel proves to be extremely violent, filled with plenty of gore and guts, and shows that Eli Roth loves his creations, but its pacing is very mishandled, the characters weren’t very likable, and starts out very bad which lessens the effect of the film.
