jay (9 out of 10 ) The script is impeccable; looking and reading like a man after a styled haircut. Cold. Almost written by Pat Bateman himself. Facinating. Sexy. Crude. More violence may have better revealed Bateman's lack of morality, such as killing a newly bought puppy. Alas, Guinevere Turner is a beautiful creature. Great.
Limey (9 out of 10 )
Great film, a stylish jet black comedy that is surprisingly much better than the book.
In its latter stages, the book becomes so twisted that I simply couldn't stomach it, and I have a strong stomach! Some of the details make you genuinely worried about the mental health of Bret Easton Ellis. It is still unfinished on my bookshelf after about five years.
Cody Lee (8 out of 10 ) Most underrated movie of all-time
Greyson Futrell (8 out of 10 ) If you take a sleek black underling of a comedy and twist it into a horror-thriller you get an extremely underrated facinating story about serial killer named Patrick Batman. Polished but not flawless the crude, sexy, bloody violence does not overkill itself or insist upon itself in any form (or none that I can see). Surprisingly one of the fair gems in a lack-luster genre.
Patrick Evans (10 out of 10 ) Not a comedy at all. Black humor maybe. Very well directed and scripted. The music to the film is llike no other film I have seen. It flows flawlessly. Patrick Bateman is played by Christian Bale to the T. His performance is oscar worthy. I wish I had his lack of emotion.
Milo (8 out of 10 ) Black comedy, Patrick, is the same thing as black humour.
dave (10 out of 10 ) Personal favorite. I had to give this film 10 stars due to Bale's ingenious performance and an enthralling script. I had a wonderful time watching this flick and I would recommend it to anyone who delves in the dark side of film .
Bale, incontestably played an oscar worthy role. Im a firm believer that great actors can make a boring movie interesting to certain viewers, but when someone ca strike gold on each component of the film such as music, script, acting,. etc, It gives me more hope in the film industry during a "lackluster genre".
LUCKVIKI (9 out of 10 ) The movie is a tad cryptic for my taste but makes up for it in proper story and character development.
Kurt (9 out of 10 ) This movie made me think about my experience in finance. And though I did not come across a psycho killer (or so I think), I certainly did come across narcissists and psychopaths who enjoy hurting others, lying, manipulating and wearing a mask at all times, except when they want to show their true horrid devilish self to torment a victim. This type can (and wants to) push others to commit suicide. They are super envious and this is well captured by the two scenes about business cards. Status is everything to them. What this movie does NOT show is that they turn the tables on their victim when they are reported. They play the victim while projecting their horrible negative qualities on the actual victim, furthering the abuse. In the eyes of everyone, the victim is the perpetrator of some imaginary crime against this wonderful human being: the poor little narcissist or psychopath. I am out of finance now. I will never go back. I will keep my soul. An important movie to make people understand the kind of people who are drawn to Wall Street. Another good movie on the subject is Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile with Zack Effron.
