5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine Dexter with military training October 9, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film explores the consequences of sending young men overseas, training them as "special interrogators" and then re-introducing them to polite society and the girl next door. It twists and turns in unexpected ways.

The Torturer was particularly scary because I realized while watching that this could really happen, and maybe it already has.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jules April 21, 2013
By Julie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Again viewed this film due to Andrew Walker being in it. I wasn't to sure what to expect but knew the acting from him is always good. The movie is intense just as much or even more than Steel Toes. I loved it! It is full of twists and turns

1.0 out of 5 stars Sensationalist Garbage Awfully Acted June 2, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie is garbage. Even aside from the plot, the acting is terrible. There are 3 primary characters - a military interrogator, a psychologist-like person, and a detainee. The interrogator is simply ridiculous; he's a pathetically over-amped solider type who supposedly falls in love with his detainee? Sure. The psychologist is equally terrible. Her acting is painful to watch and equally as amateurish as the interrogator.

However bad the acting, the story is an abysmal failure. While pretending to be a story about an interrogator's post-torture grief/stress, its much more a poorly disguised social commentary on the director's views of America's evilness, particularly in the Iraqi war. I am by no means implying that I either agree or disagree with our handling of the war, however, I do not need a movie to weakly re-trace territory already widely treated in the proper venues/forms. I am also not denying the role of cinema in advocating social positions, but at least be honest about it. This movie advertises itself as a thriller/horror following an interrogator's mental stress, but its really not. Its about moralizing over Bush and his waterboarding decisions. I feel misled; while expecting a good horror/thriller, I instead got lectured about how terrible we are as a country.

I found this movie scary because it could really happen. When Doc Colleen said, "But Rick, none of this HAPPENED in Iraq" I tensed up and started to sweat.
