I've been wanting to watch this movie for quite some time, yet somehow I managed to go into it with tepid expectations and I think that this may have assisted with my surprising overall enjoyment of the film.
If you're familiar with Ruggero Deodato's most notoriously famous film, Cannibal Holocaust, you'll have some sort of an idea for what you'd be in for with this movie. However, Cut and Run substitutes the disturbing aura from Cannibal Holocaust and replaces it with conventional movie-style action sequences. Unless I've forgotten, as it's been a few days between my viewing and typing this actual review, but while the natives in the movie may be cannibals, I do not remember any seeing any noticeable acts of cannibalism taking place in the movie itself.
If you watch the most uncut version there is, you'll be treated to quite a few gory kill sequences as people lose theirs heads, limbs,, get torn apart and more. There's all kinds of weapons being used throughout with guns, knives and blades, spears among the other dangers with snakes and crocodiles also appearing as threats. As noted above, while some of the violence at times is extreme, it's a lot easier to swallow as it's got a much more polished movie type feel to it.
Cut and Run is an entertaining flick which has pumping 80's action theme music, some gory kills and Michael Berryman jumping out of nowhere on multiple occasions like some sort of crazed jungle slasher. If you were always put off by Cannibal Holocaust because of its disturbing aspects of cannibalism and rape, Cut and Run is the perfect alternative as it doesn't really have much of that stuff.
