    The performances make the movie. Every one of these fine actors gets a lot to work with and gets to display their chops in both restrained and subtle acting and bursts of emotive excess. They're fun to watch as are the shifting alliances and sympathies. There's a lot of humor and occasional not-to-completely-obvious insights. The film eventually adds liquor and then too rapidly accelerates the stripping off of polite veneers until abruptly cutting away at an only moderately sensible point in the story to announce the end of the movie. But it's fun while it lasts.

    This is ridiculously funny with just the perfect amount of philosophy. They're all extremely funny in their hysterical patterns.
    I secretly hope this kind of encounter will happen to me someday.

    Carnage is a brilliant stage adaptation that accurately shows people cracking under pressure and the gradual decline from civilised and polite, to immature and colliding with each other. It shows the importance people put on material possessions, meaningless chatter and social status.

    Four outstanding performances, but overall probably better suited to the stage.

    I wasn't expecting a masterpiece and I didn't get one. I was expecting a good film and I got something more than that.

    This film was highlighted by a wonderful cast which consisted of four well-known actors: Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet, and Christoph Waltz. Each one of them played his/her character masterfully in this deliciously strange dramedy. It tells a simple story straightforwardly and, except for the opening sequence and the very last shot, it all took…

    A physical altercation between two eleven year old boys brings their parents together to discuss the situation... a meeting that rapidly degenerates into a verbal free-for-all in which all personalities are laid bare. Both funny and emotionally jarring, it's only real flaw is that it feels a bit confined (probably due to it's stage play roots), but still is effective owing mostly to four amazing acting performances and deft but restrained direction.

    Though supremely entertaining, even hilarious in parts, this stagy little film is terminally unambitious. Nothing about it is executed with anything less then perfect grace --- Polanski and all the actors are on top of their game --- but it's done in service of a film that's nothing more than a diverting amusement. It succeeds perfectly on its own terms, I just didn't like the terms: I go to movies to be moved, and Carnage wasn't interested in trying to make me feel anything at all.

    Carnage is the definition of awkward.

    Polanski’s Carnage unfolds within the walls of a bohemian apartment, where we witness a polite discussion between two pairs of upper-middle-class Brooklyn parents escalate into a verbal warfare- it’s stiff, talky, and airless. The initially cordial conversation becomes increasingly contentious and, once alcohol is added to the mix, inhibitions fall away and fractures in both marriages are exposed.

    In the beginning, the film's about two couples, at the end of it, it's about four…
