- Brilliantly filmed – unbelievably gruelling and hard to watch but im glad I did
- Not easy to watch but a timely reminder of the dangers of extremism
- A raw portrayal of multi-layered inhumanity – grisly and toxic Nazism
- Leaves one stunned. Horror and madness – words are inadequate
- Cinematography style made me quite dizzy but very good film

- I found the story line difficult to believe. Amazing photography
- V well acted and excellent cinematography but i found it was let down by the storyline and the technique of the filming could have been put to better effect. Would of helped if first 10 minutes someone constantly crackering a crisp packet behind.
