Eli Roth's dream project
If your a fan of Eli Roth and like super violent exploitation films from the 70's. With some awful acting and super crude humor that isn't really funny. You just might like this movie. When it comes to the main drive of this movie. It's basically violence revolving around activists that wants to protect the rain forest getting tortured and eaten by a tribe of cannibals. The first half is the build up of how the group plans and ends up in a area full of cannibals. And the other half is just people getting sliced up and tortured. Now when it comes to the characters it's just poorly done to the point you probably won't care. Yeah, that may sound a bit cold. But the characters seemed so fake...I think Eli Roth intentionally puts bad acting into his movie. It also has that formula of having a jerk in a group that messes everything up or you just can't help but detest. And the jerk in this movie is the ultimate jerk. Overall, if your an audience member that enjoy violent movies where the main point is people getting decapitated. This might be for you, although it's not as violent as other gruesome exploitation films from the 70's.

The Green Inferno stinks.
Eli Roth is at it again with all the blood, gore, and cheesy horror tropes you've come to expect, but this time with an anti-activist message wrapped up within.

Right out of the gate let me answer the question; no this is not a good movie. The acting will have you laughing the entire film, and I mean laughing at the characters not with them. The film looks like it was shot with an HD video camera from Best Buy, and the script is unabashedly flimsy. But with all of these negatives they somehow coalesce into a film that's great fun if you walk in with an open mind. Eli Roth's passion for this film shines through so much that I can't help but think every detail, bad acting and all, was all designed that way. And when approaching this film with that mindset and watching it with friends, you're guaranteed an enjoyable experience. It's certainly not a letdown when it comes to the gore effects; this movie has numerous killing scenes that are extremely brutal. You'll be cringing at some scenes and then awkwardly laughing the next. The main story-line raises questions about activism and critiques the motivations behind those who tear down jungles and those who tie themselves to trees. It seems smart at first but a little on the nose in my opinion.

So overall I wouldn't recommend The Green Inferno to the average movie-goer but for those die hard Eli Roth and horror fans, you'll certainly find something to love.
Roth's best film to date, but unfortunately tops out with only one stand-out scene...
Despite his status as an implicit 'one-trick-pony', relying predominantly on the pandering of low rent, fan boy-run social media- based horror "news" outlets who have continually publicized his plethora of ill-fated projects over the better part of a decade, Eli Roth actually managed to complete something and get it released. And, I'll be damned, I was actually somewhat interested in this latest work as it was a departure from the infantile, jump-scare laden, supernatural toilet waste that passes as 'horror' these days, as far as more 'mainstream' releases go. The idea of a NEW tribal cannibal flick hitting the big screen was inherently appealing to me, regardless of the smug douche hackster gracing the director's chair...

A wanna-be activist chick joins up with some environmentalists who travel to the amazon to ambush a crew of corporate loggers with a live-streaming "cyber" protest. Sh*t doesn't totally go according to plan (or does it?), yet they still manage to avoid getting their heads blown off by the militia. Their victory celebration on board their little plane is cut short by a crash that kills about half of them, leaving the rest to be kidnapped by a tribe of people-eating savages who mistake the do-gooders for the "evil" tree choppers. From there, you pretty much just watch the remaining captives get killed and eaten.

So, once you make it through the slow start, involving inane college kid babble and the botched protest, things actually start looking promising. The petrified group of Americans being herded into the tribal village made for a pretty strong and dire looking scene and the first guy to be gruesomely dismembered alive (after having his eyes and tongue yanked from his head and devoured...) was a delectably brutal bit of carnage, courtesy of some convincing and bloody practical FX work. Then, unfortunately, it's pretty much downhill from there with the remainder of the human livestock sitting in their bamboo cell and hatching their hair brained escape attempts in between idiotic scenes that only a frat boy-minded tard like Eli Roth would think fits into this type of movie. Sh*t like: a guy whacking off amidst bloodshed in order to "keep his mind clear", a chick with cartoonishly explosive diarrhea and getting the tribe high by jamming a bag of weed down the throat of a soon-to-be cooked corpse.

Aside from all this unfunny and out-of-place bullsh*t, the death scenes following the initial dismemberment are quite weak and ineffective. One of them kills herself in the cage. One demise is entirely off-screen and another involves lousy looking CGI bullet ants. That, on top of Roth's insufferable writing and one of the sh*ttiest 'payoffs' I can recall in quite some time, "The Green Inferno" disintegrates quickly into a tragically unremarkable and all-too 'traditional' looking horror flick, encompassing a cast of genre stereotypes. I guess I was hoping for a few less punches pulled in the long-run. Granted, it was a safe bet that animal killing and rape-sprees weren't going to 'fly' as far as a studio film in this day n' age goes, but there was ample opportunity for some dick chopping that never played out! And the topic of female genital mutilation is prevalent, but still never comes to fruition... Again, it all comes down to that one stand-out death scene.

On the flip side, is it better than all the other "Poltergeist/Paranormal Activity" sh*t coming out? Absolutely. Without a doubt. Hell, it's way better than the "Hostel" movies by a long shot and props go out to Roth for at least attempting something like this and pushing as hard as he did to get it released in theaters so I can't bitch too much. I only wish it was more worth the effort and the wait. It's worth checking out for those who appreciate the top dogs of the 'cannibal exploitation' sub-genre, such as "Cannibal Ferox", "Man from Deep River" and, of course, "Cannibal Holocaust". It's nowhere near as raw and visceral as those, but when is the last time you saw a NEW jungle cannibal flick?

On a side note of bonus douchebaggery, Roth decided to include the Twitter handles of the main cast and select crew members along with their credit at the end. Good idea since the popularity of social media sites has never been known to dwindle and accounts are never suspended or deactivated. Way to incorporate that timelessness into your movie, as*hole. Twitter will surely remain eternally relevant.

Eli Roth returns with an uneven cannibal flick
Eli Roth is a director whose fame certainly goes before him. These days you don't really get many directors unashamedly dedicated to the horror genre like you did in years gone by. I like Eli Roth for this reason and I do find him a somewhat engaging, funny and entertaining guy. On the flip side I would have to say that I have found his output to be somewhat patchy and uneven. And frustratingly sparse at that. The Green Inferno is his first feature film as director since Hostel: Part II from way back in 2007! It's a long time to be out of the game. The question would have to be has he came back in a good way? Well, despite the undoubted promise of the central idea, it's a film that is kind of as frustrating as most of his other work.

The basic idea here is to bring back a type of movie that only really existed briefly over thirty years ago. The cannibal film was a particularly notorious sub-genre. Most of the films got banned here in the UK; some still remain so to this day in their uncut forms. Their combination of graphic violence, sexual assault and real animal killing made them real bad boys of the horror genre. Cannibal Holocaust (1980) is the one film that Roth has mentioned in particular as an influence and for this viewer it is easily one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen. Its docudrama, found footage style mixed with a proper mean-spiritedness made it a pretty gruelling film but very well made. The Green Inferno takes a decidedly different approach to its material and it's not always a successful one. Where Holocaust was relentlessly confrontational, Roth's film is often quite jokey. This approach means that the tone overall fluctuates wildly but it definitely dissipates the overall threat posed by the cannibals. The choice of protagonists points to the change immediately in that it centres on a group of eco aware students who travel into the middle of the Amazonian rain-forest to stage a viral protest against some environment destroying workers, needless to say things take a bad turn and they wind up captive by a tribe of cannibals. The very fact that the film centres on a group of students makes this film surely the first cannibal film that doubles up as a teen movie! It's an awkward combination with a pretty ropey script and – the main girl played by Lorenzo Izzo aside - unlikable characters. The social commentary is not so unexpected for this type of movie, as Cannibal Holocaust had that too but it is modernised considerably here – the target is after all viral warriors who are more interested in being famous than for doing the right thing.

So how does it work simply as a horror movie? Well, it certainly has its fair share of gory violence. But it has less impact than it should because of the silly jokey tone that permeates it, even once the students have been captured. Because they aren't taking their situation seriously enough, it's hard for us in the audience to either unfortunately. The on-location photography certainly adds a fair bit it has to be said and the cannibals themselves are quite distinctive too, in particular the more prominent members of the tribe were somewhat creepy. I can't help feeling though that if Roth had reigned in the silly stuff and went full-on with this material with a more disciplined approach then it would have made for a far better film. It feels slightly like a missed opportunity and I am sad to say this as I was really on this one's side and had quite a bit of optimism for it.
Come in Mr Roth ... Your 15 minutes are up
This film has sat in limbo for the last couple of years and isn't it obvious why ... It is just awful ... Its like the Sci-Fi Channel do Cannibal Holocaust ... Hopeless clichéd actors / characters ( you can hardly call this acting ) ... Really bad effects ... And of course written and directed by Roth who, lets be honest, seems to be somewhat intellectually challenged and stopped any development at age 17 ... This is the sort of cannibal film that is the equivalent of Jess Franco's two forays into the genre, though it has none of the fun of watching Al Cliver pretend he only has one arm for most of the film :) ... It has none of the gross out power mixed with hilarity of Ferrox and none of the power of Holocaust ... In fact this, made 35 years later is a limp imitation rather than any new spin on the genre Roth is obviously good at one thing ... Raising money ... Recently he seems to be fleecing some rich South Americans that frankly you would have thought would have more sense as the films are crap and are bombing left right and centre He saw the fact that most everyday cinema goers had never experienced hardcore gore and savagery like the genre film makers were doing in the 1970s - 80s and talked Tarantino and his Hollywood honcho into letting him pretend to invent something ... And there it was ... Torture Yawn ... Come in Mr Roth ... Your 15 minutes are up
Is this an homage, or a ripoff, or just a bad idea?
It was cool to see a cannibal movie in cinemas, a throwback to a genre which didn't last long, and hasn't had a notable entry in decades- and still hasn't, because that novelty is the film's only attraction.

This is all formulaic and fairly predictable: a group of (mostly irritating and unlikeable) people end up stranded in the Amazon rainforest, first attacked by jungle natives, then held captive for an extended period of time, tortured, escàpe, blah, blah, blah.

Gore fans and Eli Roth fans may get into this a bit more, but I found my attention wandering, when I wasn't repulsed by the gore, or annoyed by some of the obnoxious characters, and the poor cinematography in the Chilean and Peruvian locales. I found myself scanning the audience to see their response to the movie more than I watched the screen. And the obligatory set-up for a needless sequel, shown partway through the closing credits, made me hope the filmmakers end up tortured by cannibals before any sequel materialises.

Filmed in November and December 2012, shown only at a handful of Film festivals in 2013, then first released in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan (!) in 2014, didn't get a proper US release until September 2015... Film's bizarre release history is more interesting than the film itself.
Can't Match the Films It Tries to Pay Homage To
The Green Inferno (2013)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A group of college students decide to head to South America where they're going to protest some developers who are damaging the rain forest and threatening a tribe that has lived there for thousands of years. Their plan doesn't quite work when their plane crashes in the jungle and soon the survivors have the unlucky fate of being served up for dinner.

Eli Roth's homage to the Italian cannibal movies of the 70s and early 80s is a rather mixed bag. After the movie was over I really didn't know what to think about it because there had been so much hype built around it. For the most part I don't think the film lived up to the hype but this is going to depend on your knowledge of the genre. If you have no idea what CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, EATEN ALIVE and CANNIBAL FEROX are then there's a great chance that you're going to be shocked and horrified at what you see here. If you're familiar with those films then you're going to see THE GREEN INFERNO as a watered down American film.

Again, it's really hard to judge this movie but I'm overly familiar with the Italian cannibal movies so let me get that out of the way. I think this film is going to shock, outrage and gross out the majority of the people who watch it as there's no question that this contains some of the most graphic and goriest violence that has ever been in an American film that had to go in front of the MPAA. How this got a R-rating is rather shocking in itself and it really makes you laugh when you watch something like this and think at one point something like SCREAM had to be cut to avoid a NC-17 rating. Again, the gore effects are rather great with many practical effects that are quite effective. The gore and violence, again, will shock most people.

With that said, if you're familiar with the brutal films in the genre then you're not going to blink an eye here. There's really nothing shocking, outrageous or too graphic if you're familiar with the films that I mentioned before. This movie certainly doesn't have the animal violence but it also doesn't have the graphic rape, mutilations or any of the infamous moments from those films. You'd think that this homage would wink at those movies and their graphic moments but the film doesn't even try. This just gives the movie an overall watered down feel that fans of the genre are going to notice and especially when you consider that there's not even any real nudity in the picture. If you can't show nudity then you know certain elements of violence aren't going to be shown.

I think another disappointing thing is that the jungle settings really aren't used. Those Italian movies worked so well because you could enjoy them as adventure stories but that's not the case here. I will say that the build-up was a lot more entertaining than I expected it to be because the violence doesn't happen until the last portion of the movie. The performances are certainly better than you'd expect with Lorenza Izzo making for a good and likable lead. The story itself is okay with some sly humor thrown in at times but then again there are some really stupid moments. There's one girl in the cage who gets "sick" and this scene is just downright stupid. There's an incredibly awful jump scare towards the end, which will have you rolling your eyes.

THE GREEN INFERNO is a decent movie but at the same time it doesn't quite live up to all the hype that people have created for it the past couple years.
Gore galore, but a slavish re-tread of the Deodato/Lenzi films. Not that that's entirely bad thing . . .
NOTE: slight spoiler in the second last paragraph, duly noted below.

I've always found Eli Roth's films to be mixed bags. GREEN INFERNO is by far his best picture, but as in most of his other films his limitations as a dialogue writer are foregrounded too often, albeit thankfully to nowhere near the extent they were in the RZA's execrable vanity project MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS. His character development skills, however, show unexpected signs of refinement during his six year absence from the director's seat.

In particular, Roth's take on environmental activists -- all of the main characters in Green Inferno are self-serious, latte-drinking "save the rain forest" university types who infiltrate a clear-cutting operation deep in the Amazon jungle and chain themselves to the logging machinery in order to protest "corporate greed" via satellite linkup with their iPhones -- cuts effectively deep for a filmmaker not usually given to social criticism.

Most criticism that could be leveled at the film's dialogue and subtext, however, is irrelevant since the drawing card for horror buffs will without question be the exotic, "dangerous" location (which promises enough stories for multiple gory sequels, according to Roth), and the copious scenes of torture, dismemberment and cannibalism that ensue when the protagonists' plane -- possibly due to sabotage, it's later implied -- crashes into the forest on the return trip home (the opening protest mission is entirely self-contained, and actually successful, or so it seems at first). Enter the natives -- reportedly played by an authentic Chilean tribe, albeit one not prone to dining on human flesh -- and the feasting begins.

The grisly makeup effects are by a team led by legends Gregory Nicotero and Howard Berger (who aren't credited at IMDb as of this writing, but ARE listed in the opening credits of the film), and they certainly deliver, particularly the squishy, screaming dismemberment that sets the ball rolling. As far as cannibal movies go, the special effects in GREEN INFERNO are certainly the most elaborate to date, but considering the most notable (and notorious) run of this genre happened thirty years ago, that probably goes without saying.

Manuel Riveiro's full orchestral lends the film an appropriately ominous sense of portent -- especially when it accompanies sweeping flyover shots of dense jungle -- and a feeling of scope and import that belies the fact that GREEN INFERNO is ultimately a throwback/valentine to the works of Ruggerio Deodato and Umberto Lenzi, almost to the letter, in particular Lenzi's CANNIBAL FEROX (aka MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY). Speaking of those two, Roth's film is actually dedicated to Deodato, and the credits list most if not all of the films in this sub-genre that one should probably see or at least be aware of going in or coming out. At TIFF, Roth claimed this list (along with numerous tweet handles in the final roll) was simply a great way to insert some marketing magic directly into the film itself, but one could also read it as a preemptive strike against critics (and fans) who might realize just how shamelessly he treads familiar ground with this show and attempt to dock points for it. Mind you, if enough future audience members haven't seen any of the late 70's or early 80's Italian cannibal pictures -- and let's face it, a whole new generation or two probably doesn't even know they exist -- that might bode well for this picture, especially via DVD/streaming, as there's nothing like experiencing a dedicated cannibal movie for the first time, and with a strong stomach. It's also now very likely that some of GREEN INFERNO's predecessors will get fancy new Blu-ray re-releases thanks to the existence of this film. So there's that.

As for gratuitous skin -- always a component of the originals -- Roth treats us to more of Daryl Sabara's junk than most viewers probably ever thought they'd care to see, for what that's worth, while for the likely-to-be-predominantly-male demographic of this type of picture, Loranna Izzo spends a fair portion of the final act bounding through the rain forest in a skimpy little muslin jungle bikini (and -- SPOILER AHEAD!! -- appears oh-so-briefly topless during her FGM "preparation" scene), while she and a couple of the other actresses have fleeting moments sans pants getting "examined" by the tribe's cataracted, jaundice-skinned resident witch doctor and gynecologist. Such as it is, the skin quotient -- when it's not being ripped and chopped apart, and cooked and eaten, at least -- is more or less on par with the original films. Thankfully Roth and company avoid scenes of animal cruelty (even faked) altogether, so those who uncomfortably recall such unpleasantness from the Deodato/Lenzi films can rest easy; it's only the humans who get eaten this time out.

Finally, a dangling subplot involving one character will undoubtedly serve as the foundation of the just-announced sequel, which reportedly begins production almost immediately. To be honest, I'd almost forgotten about this character until the drive home, which was probably the point all along.
Gore-hounds will be satisfied, people expecting a good horror movie won't be.
The Green Inferno is a standard Eli Roth fare - gore galore, cannibalism, and occasional humor - set in the Amazon rainforest. The acting is terrible right off the bat, but thankfully it isn't an issue halfway through the movie when the body count starts up. The characters themselves are paper thin, only about 3 of which are given actual personalities while the others are just fodder for the natives.

The premise of the movie is disturbing and will sound appealing to most horror fans, including myself, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Yes, the gore is done very well; as usual Roth uses great practical effects to create some wince-inducing scenes. The problem is that the first half of the movie feels like a student film. Really bad acting, horrific dialogue, and the documentary style filming doesn't help at all. It's not so much an issue once the characters are captured, but you aren't able to get immersed into the world from the get-go so you're never truly frightened or concerned for them when the bloodshed begins.

The biggest issue is that The Green Inferno isn't scary in the slightest. Apart from a cheap jump scare near the end, there's little to no suspense or tension in the movie. It's just a linear storyline with characters getting killed off one by one with very little left to the imagination. It also isn't funny. There's maybe two times I chuckled at the tongue-in-cheek jokes. Most of them come across as forced, partly due to the acting and partly due to the jokes not being very funny. Roth tries for a darker, more disturbing atmosphere and he succeeds, but he sacrificed the potential fun to be had with the film. It's not terrible - Eli Roth fans will get exactly what they're expecting - but it also isn't anything new. The Green Inferno is a decent effort but a wholly mediocre movie watching experience.
Avatar meets The Deer Hunter
Yep, I couldn't get it out of my head. This was a cross between Avatar (for obvious reasons) and The Deer Hunter (when the soldiers are held captive by savages). The rest of the movie was just OK, but I really disliked most of the characters. I was hoping that Roth would at least give some better gratuitous skin shots of the female lead. Unfortunately not enough to warrant an extra star. The main guy who was the scumbag leader of the group I really wished that they had him get chopped to pieces and eaten at the end. What a turd of a character. The first guy to get chopped up into smoked jerky was also a moron and was glad he got killed off. But if you're really interested, here are some very specific reasons that this movie was ridiculous:

1. Female bimbo takes off to parts unknown with strangers against the gut feeling of her bimbo best friend - can say cliché?

2. Female bimbo doesn't realize she's being played for a fool when she's manipulated into almost being executed because the lead moron gave her a defective or sabotaged padlock once at the protest site - a blind man could have seen that coming a mile away.

3. Scene just after the plane crash where people come out of the plane and you get the one guy who was lucky to survive the crash unhurt but confused enough to stumble into the still spinning engine propeller blades - again, totally cliché.

4. The unnecessary and totally stupid scene where the chick needs to have an uncontrolled diarrhea explosion in the cage while her fellow captives look away or look on disgusted, but the little children of the village watch and laugh making "stinky smelling" gestures with their hands by their noses. If Roth thought that would be some levity, the dude should never try to make a comedy then because he obviously doesn't know a joke from his a-hole.

5. Trying to escape through the top of the cage. Really, are these primitives so effing stupid that the first time they saw the attempted jail break they didn't think to fix the hole in the top of the cage???

6. The scene of testing the chicks for virginity with what looks like a dinosaur fang on the finger of the one-eye-blind cannibal bitch in charge. Just flat out stupid. And the least Roth could have done is shown a booty shot of the chicks from behind. Blown opportunity.

7. The main chick wins the trust or respect of one of the village children by playing a couple of notes on a necklace flute. Come on...

8. A successful escape only to have the morons go back to the plane crash site TO BE CAPTURED AGAIN!!! How stupid are these idiots?

9. The fire-ants swarming the dude. Again, missed opportunity. I'm embarrassed to write this but, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull did such a scene much much better.

Finally, 10. The scene just before the end where the douchebag is back at the university and comes up behind the main chick to say he made it back, she turns, looks shocked to see him, but then bares her bloody cannibal/savage filed teeth and attacks him, only to have a quick cut scene to her waking up safe in her bed because it was just a nightmare. Seriously, WTF was that??? The oldest and lamest trick in the book. Roth should be beaten mercilessly and repeatedly for that stunt alone.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, its off to see what other piles of steaming dog doo there are to waste my time watching.
