- Excerpt: It’s a shame that such unprecedented access to the Olympic Village was squandered on a paper-thin story that goes nowhere and accomplishes nothing.

- Excerpt: Satisfyingly bloody and wickedly funny.
- Excerpt: Joe Begos’ VFW feels like it crawled out of a grimy, urine-soaked 1980s gutter. And I mean that in the best possible way.
- Excerpt: Marry that carnage with performances hinged upon authenticity specifically because of what kind of film this is rather than despite it and you’re in for an entertaining treat.
