Don't expect to see Drive's sequel, it would make no sense ! If you don't know Refn's movie you've got to know 3 important things : - He makes contemplative movies. With a lot of silence and a minimalist screenplay. - He said "Art is an act of violence" so don't expect to see a peaceful movie. - Drive is the least representative movie of his style. You'll need to create yourself a part of the story because it's a movie between reality and nightmare. It's a philosophical and metaphysical movie. A true experimental & artistic movie. This movie is fascinating ! Cinemathography is beautifully worked, use of the red light is perfect, framing also. Production design and the places make us perfectly return in the dark side of the film. We remain completely speechless front of the pictures that are beautiful, surprising and deeply disturbing. Violence becomes poetry. The story speaks about the male impotence, revenge is put on side, there is no real hero. Just the story of a lost man who seeks his way, other side a cop who thinks he is God. It's to the spectator to find the morals of the story. The music (electro-pop) and Vithaya's interpretations are in total agreement with the progression of the story and the pictures. The actors succeed in transmitting the feelings and impressions of the characters with simple glances. We leave the room completely disturbed, while being posed full with questions, trying to assimilate all the asked questions by the artist, but completely fascinated and excited ! It is simple either one loves, or one hates this film. I loved it ! Refn signs one of his best movies, he assumes completely his style and (in my opinion) proposes to us a real masterpiece.

Fascinating ! - A masterpieceReviewed byMikeHenSevenVote: 10/10
Unfortunately there is a new generation of directors, writers, and viewers who feel that plot can be equally replaced with cinematography. Well I'm sorry after sitting threw 1 1/2 hours of long silences, pointless staring, rapid scene switching, and different lighting hues I just feel ridiculous. In fact this whole film is ridiculous. Since when can a films story and characters be omitted and then be praised? The cinematography is a sad excuse to replace the spots where the story SHOULD of been fleshed out. But there was nothing to flesh out, was there? so you can't really blame them for attempting to fill the time. I also hate when people say that others weren't smart enough to understand or appreciate the content and story. So let me break it down for those who are smart enough to appreciate/understand this film. Weak story + no character development + cinematography to fill time = Pointless
If you've seen Drive, then you should know that this movie is nothing like it, except perhaps in the fact that they are both beautifully shot. Drive had a pretty brisk pace, good dialogue, a plot that went somewhere, and a likable character. Only God Forgives had none of that. This is a movie which moves along at a snail's pace, and even at a runtime of 90 minutes, it feels like many hours go by before even a single thing happens. Even the characters move and turn slowly. The plot, such as it is, you would probably find worth watching, but Nicolas Winding Refn peppers it with pseudo-dream sequences and many pointless scenes that drag on for ever, so that the plot becomes hard to stay interested in. Now, some things you might care about. The acting. Ryan Gosling, of whom I was a fan in his earlier days, plays the same character from Drive, except that here he is indeed even more emotionless. He speaks about 5 lines during the whole movie, and has fewer different facial expressions. Kristin Scott Thomas is very good, although she feels underused. She is definitely the strong point of this movie. Vithaya Pansringarm, who plays a prominent role in the movie, is as expressionless as Gosling, although he is somewhat better, in my opinion. Action scenes do exist, and they do resemble those from Drive, in that they are very matter-of-factly and visceral. Here, Winding Refn has really indulged in a lot of gratuitous gore, although overall, I found the action scenes quite entertaining. One particular one showcases Byron Gibson's acting talents, and it is particularly (and hilariously) cringe-worthy. All the characters in this movie are unlikable. It is extremely difficult to get yourself to care for any of them, including Gosling's, who is arguably the protagonist here. Aside from Scott Thomas' acting, the only other redeeming quality of this film is the excellent way in which most scenes are set up and shot. The sets, the camera movement, the placement of the actors, all of these make up for some truly gorgeous shots. Overall, sad as I am to say it, I cannot recommend seeing Only God Forgives.
