Carnage Review - 2 Stars
Two married couples meet to discuss a fight between their sons. The meeting starts on a few politically correct notes and spirals downward. Cast includes Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz and Kate Winslet. Roman Polanski directs this film of a play. In spite of the great cast and director, “Carnage” looks like a play, and drags on like a play. A couple of outrageous moments of surprise keep this from out and out failure. Does it deliver what it promises? Yuppie parents at odds. Is it entertaining? Slow and talky with a couple of good jolts. Is it worth the price of admission? I’d wait for cable to snatch this up.
