Bill C’s Review – 1.5 out of 5
Do not get Jodie Foster mad!!
Carnage is based on the hit Broadway play ‘God of Carnage’ and was directed by.Roman Polanski. The comedy is centered on two couples civilly meeting to discuss the altercation between their two kids. The discussion quickly escalates to World War III with ever changing allegiances among the four parents.
The movie has its moments but the acting (especially by Jodie Foster) seems overdone. When she gets mad the veins in her neck are bulging, her eyes are popping and I was expecting to see steam coming out of her ears at any moment. Whether laughing or crying, more subtle acting would have been better
None of the characters were likable and while I guess the point was about how childish the parents were. They all just seemed incredibly dysfunctional and mean spirited and therefore I didn’t enjoy the movie.
