I do not know what to say. Please, do not watch this film. It trashes and utterly destroys the vision, beauty, and brutality of the original. American government should ban remakes!

Normally, I try to keep an open mind to American remakes of foreign films - sometimes they can improve (in my opinion) on them (The Ring comes to mind) but, sometimes they are poorly executed. The American version of "Martyrs" falls into this category. The original version from 2008 is a benchmark work in the wave of extreme French horror that began in the mid 00's. Sadly, the American version lightens-up the crushing nihilism of the French version, and weakens the overall impact of the story. Do yourself a favor and request the French version via Inter Library Loan (if your library doesn't already have it in its collection).

The 2008 original Martyrs is much better than this remake.

This is one of the most brutal films I've ever seen. I'm not talking about whimsical movie violence like Rambo, or Hannibal, either. It's woven into a pretty interesting plot, but be prepared because it is uniquely brutal.
