I like Justin Long, he was fantastic in Jeepers Creepers but Barbarian is uninspiring, to say the least. Not that that is the fault of the actors.
Without giving too much away, Barbarian feels a little like The Hills Have Eyes, meets Psycho, meets Quasimodo. The problem here is the scripting and handling. Its takes far too long for this story to get off the ground, it has weird, nonsensical plot holes and the reveal comes far to early.
Whats left almost feels like a second film. It leaves only a reiteration of the essential earlier plot line with a few wrinkles, as the film moves towards its rather icky, conclusion.
Of course, any sense of fear and tension, built up subtly in the first part of the film, is dissipated too. You know what’s coming.
In summary, this film feels like it borrows from other horror flicks, in the worst possible way, leading to a disjointed but predictable viewing experience that’s neither all that scary or even terribly interesting. The only thing propping it up, is the acting, which is of a high standard. Yet, as I’ve said more times than I can count, that on its own, is not enough.
**While for many horror fans, Barbarian might be compelling and unique, I found it decent but more strange and uncomfortable than scary and not as remarkable as others seem to think.**
Barbarian had heavy hype and big expectations before I checked it out. And while it didn’t blow my mind, I can see why many film aficionados would rate it more highly. It had a fresh Jordan Peele-type feel to a story that has been done many times before. I enjoyed the different stories coming together and the obvious nods to tropes of people ignoring clearly dangerous situations and red flags. However, while it had some fun elements, I wasn’t as impressed as many reviews suggested I should be. Definitely not a bad movie by any means, but some of the horror is just strange, and the creature is so bizarre that it’s less scary and more awkward at times.
Weak climax, brilliant first 90 minutes
Barbarian is that rare breed of horror- visceral- would make your stomach drop and heart beat faster + unpredictable- would make you use your grey cells to prophesize, often wrongly, where it is headed.
For 90 minutes of its 100 minute run time, it is a combination of the two. I didn’t like the way it ended, but that doesn’t take away from the experience that it is.
There is nary a dull moment, with the pace relentless. It really got to me at some places. There were many scenes where I felt like shouting to the characters to stay away from dark places. I have been watching horror fairly regularly this month, because of Halloween, and this has been the experience that I have been chasing.
The casting is spot on with Justin Long taking the cake.
The director could have tuned up the gore quotient just a little bit to make the climax more memorable.
Shifts and never comes back
First act..Bravo. Loved the ratcheting tension. Not knowing if Keith is good or bad. The camera focus trickery. The long winding hallways. My eyes darting around. Takes the time to set it up and once the ball get rolling it just..stops. It’s stops and never regains the momentum. It turns into a totally different movie And ushers in a character with a back story that is ever present into today’s times but was it really necessary? It changes the dynamic of the movie entirely and not for the better. It puts an agenda forward and Everything it took the time to set up this character tramples on and that initial dread never comes back. It turns really goofy but not even crazy/goofy enough to pick up the slack it drops it’s just kinda meh after that. Theres one scenes that must be homage to deadly prey. The first act was excellent but the tonal shift is too dramatic. The ushering in of tired tropes both horror and societal. Ya we get it. It could have been a nutzoid flick but ultimately falls short because of the 2 times (yes two) it cuts away to set up another character totally kills the initial vibe. 4 stars for the first act.
