Tries to hard to be hip...,

Think of pulp fiction, less than zero, swordfish, and Beach all mixed together into one. Trying to compete with anyone of those great films (OK swordfish was not great) is a giant risk, but trying to be all of them is, well, not really doable. Now the movie itself. cliche, predictable and unauthentic. The film puts too much weight on the characters and they all become larger than life, with a modern cutesiness that makes you cringe. The idea that these heartless murderers are quirky and likeable just like me and you is deeply flawed and it doesn't work on screen. Finally the narration by the girl throughout starts off well, but as you get to know her character on screen, her narrative doesn't match her personality at all. It becomes annoying to hear her voice after a while.
There are beautiful people, soft porn moments, and some funny lines and situations, that make it bareable to watch, but this is no classic.

How bad is the violence? The DVD states that it's brutal. Is that accurate?

I'm pretty jaded, but it's not inglorious bastards level of violence. The scene where they decapitate 10 guys with a chainsaw is the high point on violence, but it's implied violence more than graphical. The sex is more graphic actually. I don't recommend the movie though. Very forgettable.
