I suppose that would have messed with the satirical tone they were going for, but the story comes to a fairly unsatisfying conclusion.
Bel and Genesis, honestly, aren't that interesting of characters, at least when you compare them to the main character in Hard Candy, who could get away with what she did because she was such a complex character.
Bel and Genesis are just two unlikable people who have nothing better to do than to fuck with people's lives just to prove a point. If the characters had a bit more substance, then it would have been better, but there's no substance.
And, don't get me wrong, Lorenza Izzo and Ana De Armas Genesis and Bel respectively are actually really good here.
Keanu Reeves goes Nic Cage batshit crazy in some scenes. So the acting, to me, is the most entertaining part of the entire movie.
I just wish the characters would have been more interesting, the narrative would have felt more satisfying at its conclusion if they were.
I got some entertainment from the film, to be sure, but it's just not a movie that I feel comfortable calling good. You can certainly do worse, I tried a worse movie yesterday prior to this one, but there's really nothing to see here.
Hard Candy is so much better, so watch that instead. Unless you want more sex, then this is your movie and not Hard Candy.
Jesse O Super Reviewer. Mar 07, The story follows a married man who's seduced by two women who show up at his door claiming to be lost, but the next day he finds himself a captive in his own home being judged and punished by the women for his infidelity.
Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas give terrifying performances that really pull off the crazy especially well.
However, the film's theme is poorly constructed, as the girls are too violent and psychotic to be rooted for and Keanu Reeves' character is never revealed as having any dark secrets or having committed any egregious acts that are worthy of the punishment that he receives.
So while Knock Knock attempts to address some interesting issues, it ends up undercutting itself and devolving into mindless games of torment.
Dann M Super Reviewer. Nov 19, Not being a fan of Eli Roth or the torture porn sub-genre itself, I went into this film with serious reservations.
I hoped against hope that with the appealing inclusion of Keanu Reeves that this might be worth some time. Reeves has been involved in the occasional dud here and there, but he's also been known to unearth a few gems in his time.
I was hoping for the latter and also hoping that Roth may have moved on from his gratuitous early films like Hostel and Cabin Fever and actually managed to mature somewhat Alas, my reservations were correct.
Evan Webber Keanu Reeves has the house to himself for the weekend while his wife and children take a trip away. Evan's supposed to be working from home but the arrival of two young women at his doorstep temp him to do otherwise Those familiar with the psychological thriller Death Game will know what to expect already with this one but for those unaware, fear not.
There is, however, a small hint from a passing comment of Reeves flirting in the past and it's also noted that, due to family life, he and his wife haven't had sex for three weeks.
So, the stage is set Reeves gets on with his work one stormy evening until two young damsels come knocking on his door.
They've lost their way, of course, and ask for his help. They flutter their eyelashes, make suggestive sexual comments and dance flirtatiously to Spanish music.
Not before long they're naked and helping themselves to a shower while poor Keanu is folding their panties that he so obligingly dried in his machine.
Naturally, they refuse to catch the taxi home leaving good ol' Reevesy with no choice but to bump fuzzies. Now, if only Reeves had been privy to the ominous use of music that the audience hears so consistently to foretell danger he'd have known that these ladies are bad news.
And so ensues depravity, torture and mayhem. You may be reminded of such psychological films as Michael Haneke's Funny Games or David Slade's Hard Candy but the major difference is that those films are actually very good.
Quite frankly, this is awful. Had it's tongue been lodged firmly in it's cheek it might have gained a modicum of respect but it didn't.
And it doesn't! If there's any attempt at humour here then Roth has failed to capture it. It takes itself far too seriously. There's absolutely no consideration for the plot other than to move things along to the next depraved moment and the acting is woeful; Reeves is as wooden as he's ever been but, to be fair, his best moments come when he's being tortured.
Or maybe that's because I could completely empathise with his excruciating pain while enduring this film. Ridiculous doesn't even begin to describe this and I should have trusted my instinct before going into it.
I simply don't like Roth's films and after this I'll not be going near another one. If truth be told, I wish he'd just go away and stop wasting everyone's time.
The last I heard, "Knock Knock" was the beginning of a child's joke. However, this joke stretches over 90mins and doesn't even deliver a punchline.
At one point Reeves' character even screams out "what's the point of all this? Unequivocally one of the worst films I've ever had the misfortune to sit through.
Maybe once the dust settles I might be able to see this as one of those films that are so bad they're good.
I doubt it, though, this was absolutely awful. Like Roth's previous films it's just downright nasty and leaves a very bad aftertaste. No, Eli!
Just No! Back away from the camera and leave the filmmaking to the bigger children. Mark Walker. Mark W Super Reviewer.
