Masterful art in cinema!

True masterpiece genuinely done; very dark adventurous story about a group of men that are stuck in a situation after some creepy guys do some awful things and things spiral more from there! The sound editing & cinematography alone make this a wonderful experience along with a great cast!

I thoroughly enjoyed this menacing adventure; I'm sure it was difficult to make too. Movies aren't made like this anymore, so it's definitely nice to see this gem.

Deliverance is the fascinating, haunting and sometimes even disturbing tale by James Dickey, turned into a brilliant movie by John Boorman. It's about four businessmen, driven by manhood and macho-behavior, who're spending a canoeing weekend high up in the mountains. Up there, they're faced with every darkest side of man and every worst form of human misery...poverty, buggery and even physical harassment! These four men intended to travel down the river for adventure and excitement but their trip soon changes into an odyssey through a violent and lurking mountain-land, completely estranged from all forms of civilisation. All these elements actually make Deliverance one of the most nightmarish films I've ever seen. Just about everything that happens to these men, you pray that you'll never find yourself to be in a similar situation. Pure talking cinema, Deliverance is a very important movie as well. John Boorman's best (closely followed by Zardoz and Excalibur) was - and still is - a very influential film and it contains several memorable scenes that already featured in numberless other movies. Just think about the terrific "Duelling banjos" musical score and, of course, the unforgettable homosexual "squeal like a pig" rape scene. All the actors deliver (haha) perfect acting performances. Especially Jon Voight. A must see motion picture!!

A terrific film but probably NOT for all audiences!

I will be the first to acknowledge that although this is a terrific film, it will certainly NOT appeal to everyone. When I watched it with my wife, she was pretty disgusted by the plot (it is pretty adult and pretty creepy) but I wasn't. I was actually fascinated how the film violated many of the unwritten rules of film--especially the amazingly non-traditional ending.

The film concerns a group of city folk who head to the Appalachian wilderness to hunt and canoe. Unfortunately, a group of man-rapin' hillbilly trash attack--and the group members are forced to take the law into their own hands. This makes for a very creepy film (don't even get me started about Ned Beatty's big scene) as well as a suspenseful one--very suspenseful.

Overall, the film has a lot going for it--a terrific soundtrack, a 100% original story and an ending that just blew me away! Well worth seeing...if you can take the very adult plot.
