Bril­liant and bru­tal

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - WEEKEND TICKET - Brawl in Cell Block 99 (18) ●●●● ● Rough Night (18) ● ●●●● Ti­tle rat­ing

Writer-di­rec­tor S. Craig Zahler proves ace de­but Bone Tom­a­hawk was no fluke as he de­liv­ers a scorch­ing sopho­more out­ing.

A se­ri­ous Vince Vaughn is a rev­e­la­tion in this bru­tal, grip­ping drama.

Bones and lives are shat­tered in a glo­ri­ously over-the-top jour­ney to hell and back. A strong cast, in­clud­ing Scar­lett Jo­hans­son, Jil­lian Bell and Zoë Kravitz, can’t save this ris­i­ble ‘com­edy’.

Far from form­ing re­al­is­tic, Brides­maids-style, bonds, this en­sem­ble feel thrown to­gether and share lit­tle chem­istry. Most of the jokes are crude and re­liant on jokes done much bet­ter in sim­i­lar genre fare.
