The cellmates try to cope with stress in Stoic.
Let me first start off by saying this is the lowest rating I have ever given a movie. Thats just how bad it is. To begin with, it's not a film. More like mindless snuff and torture porn elements that will make you puke. This doesn't qualify as a film. It simply is something you make for fun, or just to show how ignorant you are. What a cruel, and distasteful film. With bad acting and directing from, god help us, Uwe Boll.
Uwe Boll has been criticized for the worst director of all time. In which is a dubious honor, but must be awarded, like all, in opinion. I have to say anyone who thinks Boll's directing or overall work is great needs to watch this trash. Its a cold and heartless "movie" that is just the worst you can expect from anybody. Even Uwe Boll.
The film is supposedly a supposedly a non-fiction tale about four cellmates who get into a heated poker game which results in the quiet cellmate not living up to his bet of eating an entire tube of toothpaste if he looses the hand. He is brutally beaten and forced the toothpaste down his throat. That is only the icing on the abuse cake. He is rapes, beaten, mutilated, and left for dead in most cases. What kind of film is this? A crappy, low class mess that should've been scrapped when the idea was pitched.
I honestly had to blink twice to see that Edward Furlong. Funny man from Detroit Rock City is in this crap. Honestly, I couldn't believe it. Maybe those drug problems gave him some bad karma. Who knows. Stoic is one of the few Uwe Boll films that is not based off a video game of the same name or concept. If this was a video game I couldn't expect it being banned seeing the movie wasn't. Althoug, I don't think the goal of raping and mutilating a man for no good reason is a great concept for a film.
My uncle warned me about this film, but since I'm an idiot, I must see or have the "forbidden fruit". If he said this movie caused Cancer I would have watched it. I'm sorry to say this, and would hate to again. He was right. The film sucked. An easy candidate for the worst film of 2009, and a possible candidate for the top five worst films ever.
Starring: Edward Furlong, Shaun Sipos, Sam Levinson, and Steffen Mennekes. Directed by: Uwe Boll.
