3.0 out of 5 stars Stoic January 30, 2010
Format:DVD
"Stoic" is entirely set in a prison cell shared by four prisoners. An argument during a card game soon spiral into bullying, violence and death. "Stoic "i s quite different from most of Uwe Boll's other movies. The movie is not light entertainment. It's a 90 minute study in human cruelty and violence. It's brutal and disturbing and certainly not for all tastes but it's fascinating in a way and the actors all do a good job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pack Mentality September 12, 2010
Format:DVD
I love a good horror film, and I don't often see good ones these days. So many horror films have jumped on the "torture porn" bandwagon, and have replaced suspense, tension, and an exploration of the darkest parts of human nature with outrageous gory stunts being performed on half-baked characters (Yes, makers of the "Saw" franchise, I'm talking to you!)

"Stoic" is a horror film in the truest sense of the word, because it is a truly horrifying depiction of the darkest, sickest, most cruel and cowardly aspects of human nature. Four petty criminals (not murderers or rapists, but in jail for minor drug offenses, robbery, etc) sit alone in a cell, going about their normal routine of shooting the breeze and playing cards. When one of the foursome places a bet that involves the cost of an unpleasant act (the eating of some toothpaste) and then refuses to follow through, it sets in motion a series of acts which begin as unpleasant, and quickly escalate into abuse, beatings, torture, rape, and murder.

The film does a good job of making the series of events seem believable. The young men are all caged, angry, scared, and, most of all, determined to maintain their reputations as tough and a part of the group. Whenever any of the characters display a slight sense of apprehension or conscience, the other characters are quick to instill in them the fear of the consequences of going against the pack. The film cuts from the showing of the events that led up to the death of the victim with interviews with the three perpetrators following the crime. Ultimately, each of the characters is processing the events in a different way, which vary from cold detachment, complete denial, and sniveling regret.

Director Uwe Boll is about to release a film about Auschwitz. "Stoic" was probably good exercise for that film, since it depicts a microcosm of the kind of group psychosis which led to the events in Nazi Germany.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy watch December 7, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I must say that I don't care about Uwe Boll's reputation, even though he has made some bad movies. Now, Stoic is set entirely in a prison cell with sequences of fighting, rape and sodomy, and abuse. If you can't handle those things, turn away from this movie. Each set of abuse is divided by interviews with three of the cell mates that do a great job at acting. Good news, the shaky camera isn't as annoying as it was in Rampage and Darfur.
The ending is what really brings it down a star for me because I just didn't agree with it factually. This was a great movie with minimal plot, which Uwe is actually good at doing because I personally don't think that he writes well. I could watch it again, but I would probably watch it with the commentary or just the special features. Once you watch it once, you don't feel the urge to really watch it again. Rent it and see for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! June 19, 2012
By T. Farr
Format:DVD
I've seen a lot of prison movies and this is one of the best. And it does something that the others never do, it shows the convict's personalities seemlessly transitioning from normal to sadistically violent. If you have ever watched one of those prison reality shows you know this is how they really are - being able to seem so calm being interviewed then soon after getting into a brutal scuff with the guards. Somebody else here compared this movie to Short Eyes but the only thing they have in common is that they are both prison flicks. In Short Eyes the antagonist's motives for violence are entirely different. And Edward Furlong gives an incredible performance that has to be seen to be believed. Check this one out!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, raw, real April 19, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the movie. It was gritty and raw. Though shocking and in-your-face, since it took place in the jail cell, it felt kind of "boxed in". I did enjoy it though.
