Descripción del producto

Richie Donovan ist ein Pechvogel. Da soll der smarte Ganove einen Diamantenraub an der Cote d'Azur durchziehen und setzt das Ding gleich mal in den Sand. Sein Boss verdonnert ihn daraufhin als Wiedergutmachung zur Beschaffung eines antiken russischen Artefakts, das schwer gesichert im Tresor in der obersten Etage eines Moskauer Wolkenkratzers lagert. Das erste Problem naht in Gestalt von Ritchies russischen Komplizen, die einfach zu trottelig für diese Welt sind. Das zweite Problem zeichnet sich ab, als der akkurat geplante Job in einem Blutbad endet und sich Gauner samt etlichen Geiseln im Fahrstuhl wieder finden, der seine Benutzer störrisch im menschenleeren dreizehnten Stockwerk des Gebäudes ablädt. Das wiederum führt zu Problem Nr. 3: Es führt kein Weg nach draußen. Als die erste Geisel außerplanmäßig ihren Kopf verliert, wird schnell deutlich, dass sich noch jemand anderes in den verwinkelten Korridoren herumtreibt - und wer auch immer es ist, er wird Ritchies Probleme nicht gerade verringern. Als ausgerechnet jetzt auch noch die Geiseln zur Gegenwehr schreiten ist klar, dass heute nicht Ritchies Tag ist…

When a horror movie doesn't work it can be bad but when a comedy isn't funny it can be teeth grindingly awful. And unfortunately that's pretty much what happens here. "Botched" shoots for that comedy/horror genre that's so hard to nail and it falls short on both counts. In the story a professional thief is sent to Russia to steal a specific artifact from the penthouse apartment of a large building. Things go badly and the thief (Played by Stephen Dorff.), his two associates and a group of hostages find themselves trapped in the seemingly abandoned 13th floor of the building. Then people start to die. It's not a brilliant setup but it's not awful either and there's plenty of blood and gore (Although some of the gore is just gross.) so you had the potential here for a pretty watchable movie. Unfortunately the scary part isn't scary and the funny part isn't funny. And while you can sometimes get away with a horror movie that's not scary, bad comedy and "quirky" characters that don't work are mind killers. I gave this two stars because the actors are all game snd do their best with what they have to work with. And honestly because I don't know why this was so bad. It should have been funnier. It should have been a more entertaining movie. It just wasn't.

The film begins with an almost Fargo-like series of mis-steps and mishaps that actually grab your interest. Unfortunately, that's as good as it gets. The joke, if you get it, begins with a Mr. Grozny (a fish-out-of-water Sean Pertwee...wouldn't Dr. Who just turn in his grave?) inviting the idiot who blew his last job to steal some "family heirlooms" in the penthouse suite of some Moscow high-rise. What they showed could well have been the former Lubyanka.
Recruiting the aid of a couple of Russian morons, probably too closely related, the theft goes from bad to worse, as does the film. Stupidity abounds with the cast slowly being slaughtered by some whirling dervish and so on.
Comedy and horror really don't mix too well and you have to be careful about your mix. Severance got it absolutely right and The Cottage comes in a close second. Here, it's like oil and water, one or the other.
This wretched experience brings the Keystone Kops to a new level of sophistication.
For what it's worth, "grozny" (pronounced "grozh-nyee") means "terrible." As in "Ivan the Terrible."

A thief named Ritchie (Stephen Dorff) must rob an exclusive, high-rise penthouse in order to pay back a debt. Unfortunately, two things have gone horribly wrong. Thing #1- Ritchie's two accomplices are absolute imbeciles. Thing #2- They wind up being trapped on a secret floor of the building, hunted by a decapitating, disemboweling maniac! BOTCHED is an intentionally goofy splatter epic in the vein of DEAD ALIVE, SEAN OF THE DEAD, OTIS, etc. w/ plenty of laughs and sloshing intestines. So, if you prefer your humor wet, this one should quench that thirst... P.S.- Watch for Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers) in a small role as a crimelord...

I like to think of myself as a fair appraiser of movies. I try to take movies as they are when giving to, or taking from, their merit, and not what I think they should have been. In all fairness, you can't judge a movie like The Shawshank Redemption on its comedic intent rather than dramatic effect anymore than you can judge Thomas The Tank Engine based on how many dismemberments and T&A shots there were. It's not fair to the film.

However, upon watching Stephen Dorff's Botched, I think I am being fair when I say that this was a horrible script surrounded by a great cast and intense execution. What does that really mean? I'm not too sure, but I'll sure as hell try to explain it.

Botched, directed by newcomer Kit Ryan and written by Derek Boyle, Eamon Friel, and Raymond Friel, introduces us to Ritchie Donovan, a professional thief with a streak of bad luck(played by Stephen Dorff of SFW and Blade fame). Our first contact with Ritchie displays a twice-bumbled jewel heist, of which Ritchie's employer, probable Russian mob boss Mr. Groznyi, is quite unhappy with. To redeem himself, Ritchie is given one last job, to steal a cross from a family living on the penthouse floor of a building in Moscow. With the help of brothers Peter and Yuri, the job goes bad, and the three felons are caught on the 13th floor(inferred) of the building with a group of apparently innocent bystanders, a security guard, and some Dungeons & Dragons fanatic with a real sword.

Hilarity ensues. Or at least is supposed to.

I will be fair: this film never asks to be taken seriously. There are a few memorable scenes that make sure we remember this, one which includes the use of disco lights and music, another at the end that almost makes the whole movie worthwhile. Geoff Bell, Jamie Foreman, and Hugh O'Conor all put on excellent comedic performances when they are needed, even if it is to smooth the edges of Stephen Dorff, who has a knack for turning anything remotely funny into melancholy drama. Not that that's always a bad thing, but in this movie, it doesn't work all that well. This movie has no serious intent, Stephen, so there is no need to try to make this an Oscar-worthy performance.

The problem with this movie is incoherence mixed with NOT ENOUGH FUNNY. Incoherent is only as funny as the running gag jokes that give the movie its script. Of course, sometimes too much funny incoherence can be bad(see Scary Movie 2-4, Superhero Movie, Meet The Spartans, Disaster Movie for references). Botched doesn't give us enough funny, and with a feeble script limping along, it just doesn't make the cut. Sure, there's some nice, gruesome gore in the film, but even those moments of horror are few and far between, which makes it a tough sell when going up against movies like Frontier(s) and Otis

First off this movie isn't to be taken seriously. It's a quirky, silly horror-comedy so if you expect something serious then you don't need to bother with this film.

Botched is about an American thief in Russia (Stephen Dorff) who teams up with two Russian brothers to rob a highrise. They soon get trapped by who they think are the cops but when heads starting flying off and people start getting hacked they realize they've made a mistake.

While trying to devise a plan of escape the three robbers meet up with an elevator of people who they take hostage. After that some of the hostages are picked off one by one by a crazed barbarian serial killer and from there this cute comedy springs some surprising and hilarious twists.

I was shocked I enjoyed this movie because I didn't expect much. I love to laugh and this film got some good chuckles from me. It's not award-winning material of course but it keeps you entertained. This is one of those films just to watch to pass the time. I caught it on cable and if something better had been on I wouldn't have watched it but being a Stephen Dorff fan (even though his movies are horrible), I gave it a try.

Anyone who has followed Dorff's career might agree that Botched is definitely not one of his worst films. In fact it's the best he's made in a while. I loved seeing him in a comedic role. He has a sort of sexy, dry humor thing happening and maybe he should venture more into comedy from now on.

The movie is fast-paced and the characters are all interesting. Some are stereotypical but that's the beauty of them.

So if you're looking for a film that's sure to be a little fun then Botched might be up your alley. Just don't expect too much.
