“i liked this film very much, my fellow IMDb reviewers, for what it is.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLet me start with the things i liked; fantastic photography. excellent casting – an amazing collection of interesting characters, simply looking at them is interesting. the acting, i thought it was pretty solid on all counts, including the supporting actors(yeah, i did like the lead too). the pacing, the writing .. i pretty much liked everything about this film, from a production point of view.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e(you can see from my review history that i do not, in fact, work for the production company)u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ethe story … is bad. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ei second the fact that having a film half 50s noir and half modern is unsettling, but with a little suspension of disbelief you can get past that rather easily. the only real fault here is the weak story, and the miserable ending. i like the various situations that develop, and yet there isnu0026#39;t really a main theme to keep me interested.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ebut, iu0026#39;ve seen better films fail much worse than Abbattoir.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eignore the weak point, and focus on how well this film is made, visually, and you will enjoy it, IF you enjoy classic cinema. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ehonest vote, 7/10. Iu0026#39;m looking forward to the next work by the director.”
