Midweek Mouth-off: Too brutal?

1 min read

There’s been some debate this week over in gamer-ville about the “excessive” violence in BioShock: Infinite. Today we’d love to hear your thoughts on films, good or bad, that you felt overdid the violence.

Can you think of examples where you found the brutality jarring and pulled you right out of the movie experience? What about those flicks where the unexpected violence adds emphasis and emotional power to events onscreen? (I’m thinking Drive, personally). Which films and filmmakers have got it right in the past? Who knows how to find that balance?
