I had heard some good things about Razor Eaters, and I feel those good things are very justified. The film is very gritty, and in a documentary style, which cleverly hides the low budget. But it works, it definitely works. And even though this is a low budget movie, it's well acted, well shot (even though most of it is shot on handheld), and well written. This gang committed loathsome acts, but gained a cult following, why? Because you had to kind of admire what they were doing. Killing a guy who ran a dog fighting ring (my favorite part), drug dealers, an arms dealer and more. But the movie isn't all about random violence, there's some depth behind everything, and I'll leave it at that, I don't want to ruin things for you. This movie is compared to Natural Born Killers, and while it doesn't quite reach that caliber, it is still a very entertaining ride.

So what is a Razor Eater? In this case, a Razor Eater is one of the gang of 5 who have been terrorizing Melbourne, Australia recently with a string of murders and terrorist acts. To their credit, the Razor Eaters have specified they're targeting drug dealers, so they have the support of the people and fans all over town who are wearing Razor Eater shirts. But for the police, and Detective Berdan in particular, they're still breaking the law and have to be taken in.

This is the simple premise of Shannon Young's 2003 movie RAZOR EATERS, and it's a simple enough one, probably could have let it go at that and shot a quick, violent movie and been on his way. But apparently that's not how Shannon Young does things. For starters, the movie is filmed in a faux found footage style as one of the Razor Eaters--I'm going to assume it was Rob, but I honestly had a hard time keeping them all straight; however Rob was played by the writer/director, so I think this is a safe assumption--is filming their exploits. So we not only see everything from the Razor Eaters' POV, but we also are meant to feel a part of the group. However, at the same time we're seeing the events unfold on camera via the Razor Eaters, we're also following along with Det. Berdan as he tries to track them down and end their reign.

I thought this was a pretty interesting way to handle the found footage method, which is usually an all-in arrangement, meaning if it's not "on camera", we don't get to see it. Unfortunately, this usually calls for a lot of silly situations in which the camera is brought along in the midst of the fight, and it's supposed to seem totally natural that it's there.

Good show! This low budget unknown is quite good. Vigilantes set out to rid Melbourne of dealers and frustrate police from the get-go. Brutal murder after murder, with the intent of gaining a hoard of followers, the Ravor Eaters create chaos and mayhem to shake up the law and the lawless. I only gave it a three because of the lack of sound quality. It was already difficult trying to sustain the Aussies diction, but when it's muffled, it's almost a silent picture. It's definitely worth a look. I enjoyed it. And I loved the ending.
