All in all I give it 2 and a half stars for the first hour and 4 stars for the last 30 minutes.
Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva
If you enjoyed the first two Eli Roth Hostel's, then you may be a little disapointed in the third installment.
Jeremy Rushing
I feel like I should apologize sometimes for liking the first Hostel movie so much and the sequel even more.

Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this movie... direct to DVD, the biggest "star" in it was Kip Pardue, not even a production credit from Eli Roth... but I had no idea it would be so aggressively stupid and just plain insulting to the intelligence of its audience. Hostel was popular not just due to its gore, but because it played on American fears of that dark and alien place that is eastern europe, as well as themes of xeno and homophobia. In short, it was torture porn that was smarter than it had any right to be and that is why it was such a success. Then along comes Hostel II with slightly less provocative gender themes, misogyny and one of the most disturbing and graphic death scenes to grace cinema theaters in a while. Now we have Hostel III, a movie that is so distant from its predecessors that, as I stated before, it's just plain insulting to viewers.

Hostel III follows the Elite Hunting Club's continued booming business of torture and murder, this time taking us to the U.S. (mistake number one) Las Vegas (what happens there stays there, get it?) to be precise, where club members not only get to indulge in acts of carnage, but also have the option of watching and even placing bets on the dismemberment. A group of guys, lead by hasbeen Kip Pardue (you know how I know he's a hasbeen? cause he's staring in Hostel III!) out celebrating their buddy's impending wedding. While this premise sounds mildly promising, it isn't, not even a little bit. This movie fails for one main reason: it betrays its source material completely and utterly. Even with the limited budget of a direct to DVD release, one would at least expect to see some decent gore and disturbing carnage, right? Think again, instead you'll be treated to some of the most bloodless and stupidest deaths you've ever seen.

The idea of human trafficking existing for the pleasure of the silent rich to torture is both believable and disturbing on many levels. It touches the nightmare of captivity and the absence of humanity, just pure evil for one's sick private world. Apparently Eli Roth who wrote and directed the first two Hostel films got the original idea when he came across an article that suggested destitute families in Thailand would sell family members to well financed criminals and in turn businessmen from Europe and the US would pay $10,000 to walk in a room and shoot the sold individuals in the head. Shocking and very upsetting.

`Taken' (2008) gave us the action and the probability of how huge the human trafficking trade is in the world while the Hostel films just trims the fat off to give you the meat of unbearable acts one human can do to another who's strapped to a chair. Watching these films you can actually imagine the very real possibility of yourself being suddenly taken away and no one will know where you are and you can't escape. That is why this horror franchise stands above other lame film imitations. You will notice the influence of the brilliant `Hangover' films in this third instalment, it's almost a bloody carbon copy horror version of `The Hangover' (2009). The opening scene is great and unexpected, the ending could have been awesome. Unfortunately the makers decided to have a predicable comedy ending, just like so many other horror films do because they are fearful of taking risks. Giving the audience what they want instead of what they don't expect. I hate safe.

Putting aside the awful ending I enjoyed this episode, Eli Roth was not involved so I was interested to see how this one would pan out.

Why all the hate? What was everyone expecting when sitting down of Hostel Part III? An Oscar worthy film with many tears and moving moments? No. It's a horror movie, of the 21st century torture/revenge variety. For what it was, this film turned out fantastic! People don't like that Eli Roth didn't put his touches on this one, but you know what? It's time to move on from what he did. It's time to hand over the baton that we all knew would be passed sooner or later. Who did he give it to? Some new guy who would ruin the film franchise? Some up and coming pretentious twit? No way. He gave it to Scott Spiegel, long time Sam Raimi Collaborator, producer of Hostel I and II, and DIRECTOR OF INTRUDER! One of the best slasher films of all time! Everyone needs to calm down and see this film for what it really is: a cult following aimed horror film. Will the fans of Twilight or Avatar applaud this effort? Maybe not. Will the art crowd or, dramatic theater actors rejoice in Hostel III? Well it would be a step in the right direction surely! But this film isn't appealing to them, nor is it trying to. This is a horror film, for cult horror film fans, pure and simple, and in that respect, it did more than it's fair share.

The original Hostel was IMHO a pretty good horror movie...lots of gore and thrills. Usually sequal's don't measure up to the original in most cases. There have been a few that were as good or better then the original...The Godfather part 2 IMHO was better then part one...that is a rarity and not the norm.

Hostel part 2 came close to being as good but IMHO missed the target, but only slightly. Hostel part 3 lets say missed the target completely and totaly backfired. I won't get into the details about every aspect of the movie. the producers were hoping to ride the wave of part 1 and 2. the only similarity is the title of the movie...In Parts 1 and 2 the movie unfold in a foreign country and seemed to be realistic, actually in true life this sort of thing does happen in the black market of kidnapping (we are talking about part 1 here)..but to think this is happening in Las Vegas or trying to somewhat think this is realistic was an uphill battle that was a total failure.

Who would be pleased with watching this movie...Only true blue fans of anything that resembles gore...there is no rhyme or reason to the plot.
