Editorial Reviews

In the spirit of great horror comedies like Army of Darkness, Shaun of The Dead, and An American Werewolf in London comes BOTCHED a film that takes funny and gore to the next level. Having recently won best feature at the New York City Horror Film Festival, the film's star Stephen Dorff (Blade, World Trade Center, and who is currently filming Public Enemies with Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, and Director Michael Mann) also took home Best Actor honors as well. Jamie Murray (Dexter, and the BBC series Hustle) is also along for the ride along with a ensemble cast of memorable characters. From producer Steve Richards, who also brought you The Matrix: Reloaded, House on Haunted Hill, and the upcoming Guy Ritchie film RocknRolla comes the story of Ritchie Donovan (Stephen Dorff), a professional thief whose luck turns from bad to worse. The only survivor from a heist that goes terribly wrong, Ritchie is forced to take the rap and is sent to Russia to steal a priceless antique cross locked in a safe on the penthouse floor of a Moscow skyscraper. Unfortunately, his luck runs out, yet again, and things rapidly go downhill. During the robbery, Ritchie and his Russian accomplices are trapped by police and are forced to take hostages, seeking refuge on the building's unused 13th Floor... and we all know how unlucky the number 13 is.

Just don't expect too much.

It is funny and easily outdoes most "comedy" movies churned out today but it's not you're typical Hollyweird movie and that's a very good thing.

How dare they put this in the same ball field as Shaun Of The Dead.

I like to think of myself as a fair appraiser of movies. I try to take movies as they are when giving to, or taking from, their merit, and not what I think they should have been. In all fairness, you can't judge a movie like The Shawshank Redemption on its comedic intent rather than dramatic effect anymore than you can judge Thomas The Tank Engine based on how many dismemberments and T&A shots there were. It's not fair to the film.

However, upon watching Stephen Dorff's Botched, I think I am being fair when I say that this was a horrible script surrounded by a great cast and intense execution. What does that really mean? I'm not too sure, but I'll sure as hell try to explain it.

Botched, directed by newcomer Kit Ryan and written by Derek Boyle, Eamon Friel, and Raymond Friel, introduces us to Ritchie Donovan, a professional thief with a streak of bad luck(played by Stephen Dorff of SFW and Blade fame). Our first contact with Ritchie displays a twice-bumbled jewel heist, of which Ritchie's employer, probable Russian mob boss Mr. Groznyi, is quite unhappy with. To redeem himself, Ritchie is given one last job, to steal a cross from a family living on the penthouse floor of a building in Moscow. With the help of brothers Peter and Yuri, the job goes bad, and the three felons are caught on the 13th floor(inferred) of the building with a group of apparently innocent bystanders, a security guard, and some Dungeons & Dragons fanatic with a real sword.

Hilarity ensues. Or at least is supposed to.

I will be fair: this film never asks to be taken seriously. There are a few memorable scenes that make sure we remember this, one which includes the use of disco lights and music, another at the end that almost makes the whole movie worthwhile.

This movie starts out really well, I was excited, interested and engaged... then it sank into a quagmire of trying too hard to be funny. The opening felt like your typical mob/crime film then we get to the horror/comedy part and everything went so way over the top that it felt like a student film.

The premise, a couple of thieves steal a golden cross at the request of their crime boss, then during their getaway get stuck in the building with a serial killer, some crazies, a loony security guard, and an assortment of whiny bad guy fodder. True some of the gore was GREAT, I wasn't thrilled with one of the decapitation scenes, but the rest of the gore was spot on. The problem was that the premise got old quickly and the movie starts becoming reminiscent of that old 80's film "Clue" with Tim Currey. Now I loved "Clue" but it also didn't contain a random man dressed up like a barbarian, wielding a sword through the hallways of a high rise.

I have heard this movie compared to "Fido" "Black Sheep" and the like, but sadly I feel that this movie attempted to go there, but never made it. Rather than funny, it was silly, and failed on all attempts by the time you get to the end.

Now I suppose if you are REALLY drunk, this movie might be funny. Other than that go for something else.

Format: DVD
The film begins with an almost Fargo-like series of mis-steps and mishaps that actually grab your interest. Unfortunately, that's as good as it gets. The joke, if you get it, begins with a Mr. Grozny (a fish-out-of-water Sean Pertwee...wouldn't Dr. Who just turn in his grave?) inviting the idiot who blew his last job to steal some "family heirlooms" in the penthouse suite of some Moscow high-rise. What they showed could well have been the former Lubyanka.
Recruiting the aid of a couple of Russian morons, probably too closely related, the theft goes from bad to worse, as does the film. Stupidity abounds with the cast slowly being slaughtered by some whirling dervish and so on.
Comedy and horror really don't mix too well and you have to be careful about your mix. Severance got it absolutely right and The Cottage comes in a close second. Here, it's like oil and water, one or the other.
This wretched experience brings the Keystone Kops to a new level of sophistication.
For what it's worth, "grozny" (pronounced "grozh-nyee") means "terrible." As in "Ivan the Terrible."

I saw this late one night on cable. I stopped to see it for Stephen Dorff, but soon recognized other actors and kept watching. This is so not my genre, but it was so far fetched and absolutely hilarious that I ended up watching the whole thing! Then I got online and purchased a copy. My friends and sis laughed their heads off! It's a spoof of all those other horror films you've either seen (or in my case, heard of).

First off this movie isn't to be taken seriously. It's a quirky, silly horror-comedy so if you expect something serious then you don't need to bother with this film.

Botched is about an American thief in Russia (Stephen Dorff) who teams up with two Russian brothers to rob a highrise. They soon get trapped by who they think are the cops but when heads starting flying off and people start getting hacked they realize they've made a mistake.

While trying to devise a plan of escape the three robbers meet up with an elevator of people who they take hostage. After that some of the hostages are picked off one by one by a crazed barbarian serial killer and from there this cute comedy springs some surprising and hilarious twists.

I was shocked I enjoyed this movie because I didn't expect much. I love to laugh and this film got some good chuckles from me. It's not award-winning material of course but it keeps you entertained. This is one of those films just to watch to pass the time. I caught it on cable and if something better had been on I wouldn't have watched it but being a Stephen Dorff fan (even though his movies are horrible), I gave it a try.

Anyone who has followed Dorff's career might agree that Botched is definitely not one of his worst films. In fact it's the best he's made in a while. I loved seeing him in a comedic role. He has a sort of sexy, dry humor thing happening and maybe he should venture more into comedy from now on.

The movie is fast-paced and the characters are all interesting. Some are stereotypical but that's the beauty of them.

So if you're looking for a film that's sure to be a little fun then Botched might be up your alley. Just don't expect too much.
