Shut four people in a room and you get CarnageBy Wooster (310 reviews) from Tonbridge , 24 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]The most interesting thing I found with Carnage was how the battle lines kept changing and each character sided with another then broke away again.
The dialogue was excellent and it certainly had some great moments which made me chuckle, but the star spot goes to Miss Winslet in the chucking-up scene which was so good.
Carnage is tightly shot in only a few rooms of an apartment and felt in many ways more like a stage play than a feature film, which isn't intended as any sort of criticism.
It's a good film although if you like action and shoot 'em up stuff you'll find this very staid as Carnage is all about interaction and dialogue.

Hope I don't get like that.By Bertie101 (3 reviews) , 15 Jun 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideMore a depiction of self loathing than the duration of the film can sustain. Counterbalanced by superb ham acting that creates the comedy in an otherwise introverted plot in a single scene scenario. Hate the fact the hamster lives.
What over thinking can do.By a customer , 14 Jun 2013It is JUST TALKING. If you need action or plot twists I suggest you don't watch. However it is a brilliant example of how good a film with a minimal plot should still get some recognition in today's modern media.
Nothing SpectacularBy a customer , 14 Jun 2013Nice idea, not enough interesting content to make an enjoyable film. I wanted to turn it off within 5 minutes but gave it a chance. It's more about the social situation than anything else. Probably better as a play.
not quite sureBy marie_a (21 reviews) from Harrogate , 03 Jun 2013a film worth watching but i still cant make my mind up as to whether or not i enjoyed it! crazy characters who lose the plot more and more as the film goes on. plenty of funny moments
