Customer Reviews

Adrian Brody should NOT have been in this film.
Spider Labyrinth
You won't have trouble making it through to the end, but you won't have trouble sleeping after seeing it either.
Trevor Willsmer
It is disturbing in many ways, but I also found it to be realistic.

Format: DVD
Even the worst Dario Argento films have managed to at least get DVD releases in the past decade or so, so the fact that Giallo was filmed two years ago and is still unreleased in most of the world aside from a handful of badly received festival screenings where it was laughed off the screen doesn't exactly fill you with confidence. It may not be the director's favorite film by a long shot - despite the misleading 'written and directed by' credit, he was simply a director for hire with the script written by the separately credited Jim Agnew and Sean Keller with the producers apparently no longer returning his phone calls - but it's fair to say that it's a long way from being his worst, thankfully never descending to the depths of Phantom of the Opera or the lacklustre The Card Player. Unfortunately it's also not especially good.

The story is serviceable enough, with model Elsa Pataky abducted by a deformed serial killer who likes to take his time destroying beautiful things and her frantic sister (a haggard Emmanuelle Seigner) teaming up with Adrian Brody's broody Italian-American cop to find her while there's still enough of her to find. Despite the set-up, it avoids going the Eli Roth torture porn route, but there are few of Argento's signature flourishes. Not only are the gloves literally off but the film's one 'big' death scene is nothing to write home about: just a simple fall from a tall building. Worse, a couple of minor twists aside, the plot just plods along with not much happening until the last half hour before a last scene that feels like it was tacked on not so much to give the film a happy ending but because what you suspect was the original ending didn't pack enough of a punch.

you can't always listen to the haters.

going in to this movie, i wasn't expecting very much. at best, i figured the title of the film was a cheap cash-in on the director's legendary output. something to get "nerds" like myself to pony up the funds to watch some new argento. i hadn't really dug anything recent from argento, and it certainly seemed like the glory days were long gone.

maybe going in with little expectation helped, but this film is a huge improvement over the weak tv-movie vibe of "mother of tears" and certainly a major improvement in the acting department. having adrian brody on board absolutely bumped this film up 10x. granted, he doesn't have TONS of stuff to do in the film, and he plays it straight as the detective with a troubled past who has his "own methods" for catching the psycho killer. typically his character would've been staffed by a no-name or has-been actor who really phones it in. having someone of his caliber on board makes his character stick out, and this film infinitely more watchable. argento keeps brody in the spotlight damn near the entire film, and i daresay his character is more important in the end than the actual killer is.

the cinematography alone is a thousand times better than the bland, ho-hum look of latter day argento output. this has warmth and class when zooming around the city and a suitably dank look in the killer's "dungeon" attention to detail in these areas makes a difference. you've also got a more fleshed out story that makes more sense. everyone who follows argento knows it's usually been style over substance. his dream-like images and narratives being the important than the acting and the logic of the story. in my opinion, this film turns that around.

I put off watching this film because of the bad reviews. If you're a 70's Italian giallo film fan, don't put off watching it. No, my friend, revel in it. My take on the film is that this is a nearly perfectly updated 70's giallo in the true sense of the the sub-genre term. It's new giallo old-stock and a must see for fans of directors like Argento, Lenzi, Martino, Fulchi, and Bava and the cinematic giallo art of the 60's and 70's. Beautiful camera set-ups, violent death scenes, excellent Italian scenery, great music (but not as good as the Italian classics of old), beautiful women, and Brody is perfectly cast as the brooding detective. It's violent bold chance-taking artsy schlock - just like the giallos of the 60's and 70's. The totally wacked villian is more something out of a Fulchi film, I thought, and adds that dollup of nuttiness required for the genre. Of course, don't expect idiot film critics (who are really frustrated literary critics) who don't understand cinema - and who prefer pretentious film snob bores to artsy-exploitaion, to give it its due - or fans who have never seen a true giallo. All the elements that make a giallo a giallo are there, including the /required/ dose of nuttiness - as is Argento's trademark style. He pulled it off. Bravo! The only thing missing was a bottle of JB scotch, though I might have missed it. I'll need to keep an eye out for it when I watch it again.

I put off seeing this film because of all the negativity involving the critics and also actor Adrian Brody in the controversy of money for services rendered. I'm glad I finally got to see it and yes, it's no 'SUSPIRIA'-1977 but then again, we are not in the seventies anymore either. At that time, there were no reality TV shows showing actual autopsies or histories of serial killers or Showtime's 'DEXTER' to measure up against. Since Director Dario Argento never started out as a Horror Director per se, its fitting that he went back to his roots and you can look at the title 'GIALLO' as the name of the killer in the film or as the genre that Argento basically made famous with 'THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE'-1969 aka 'L'UCCELLO DALLE PIUME DI CRISTALLO'. All the critics seem to be looking at is a career slump but isn't it fitting that after Director Alfred Hitchcock made many masterpieces back to back that his career did the same thing? You cannot say that 'TORN CURTAIN'-1966 and 'TOPAZ'-1969 are up to par with his best. Yes, Argento did the MASTERS OF HORROR series which had his best work in years ('JENNIFER" still haunts me to this day) and then unleashed 'MOTHER OF TEARS'-2007, a flawed but still outrageous piece of filmmaking. 'GIALLO' is his best thriller since 'SLEEPLESS'- aka 'NON HO SONNO'- 2001 and has all the Argento qualities we know and love: beautifully edited and photographed sequences, strong women figures and jolting surprises. Brody is joined by Emmanuelle Seigner ( Mrs. Roman Polanski) and Elsa Pataky giving our killer a run for his money. You'll also see the credit of Roy Bava as a technician on the film joining other family members such as Lamberto and the master Mario Bava to remind us of the golden age of Italian Horrors.Read more ›
