An unwatchable mess .

Kramer is showing us his very own rather disjointed comprehension of reality.

While most of the cast really performed to the best of their abilities, the film feels really disjointed and tries to be really quirky which probably lets it down in places.

surprisingly entertaining .

Yawn Chronicles .

Entertaining enough to sit through.

Funny, bizarre, pointless in a good way .

Overall, funny and entertaining.

Well it's a very disjointed hit and miss affair.

I find the whole film a bore, and is a torture to watch.

The result can often be sickening rather than amusing and I am tired of these pointless and ultra violent films.

But the end, that was worth watching: all of a sudden everything makes sense - each one of these crazy stories finds its place for the final American show.

So any expectations I had were formed in the few minutes I spent overlooking the film, that said, "Pawn Shop Chronicles", in the end wasn't quite as good as it could have been, but it certainly had it's moments and managed to stay entertaining.

The first tale got you pumped, the second upped the ante, and the third one nearly bored me to death.

Completely off the wall and irreverent, I highly recommend it with 7/10 stars to start off your weekend in a great mood.

Make no mistake however, the film i found was pointless.

It has an intense script, drugs, violence, shootings, every scene is packed with superb actors with a plan of action.

Another propaganda movie by a certain group living in the States.

It's crazy and plenty entertaining, and it'll leave you with questions by the end.

The rest was all two predictable and lame.

"Pawn Shop Chronicles" has a strong and stellar cast, but the execution is so poor that I found it unwatchable.

The third sequence, taking into account the insane direction that the previous story took, it was a bit bland with a most bizarre ending.

This gets a 6 out of 10 for extreme weirdness and confusion.

Yes, the movie can be disturbing and, at times, I wondered if I was a terrible person for laughing at some of the offensive jokes but there was something perversely entertaining about the film.

His image is compelling to the locals in that unnamed small southern town and they willing follow him around!

Disturbingly entertaining .

The first two stories are ultra violent, while the third one is pointless.

What I got out of this film was confusion, humour, some sort or religious symbolism, zombie-naked women.

It was disturbing and dull with over the top crazy and mean characters.

Thrown Together, Nonsensical and Pointless .

Trying to be edgy and witty the film ends up being boring, mean spirited, and dull.

It's a really dark and twisted film (like 'RUNNING SCARED') but also bizarrely interesting and entertaining.

The problem with Pawn Shop Chronicles is that it is to disjointed and weird for it's own good.

A darkly funny, entertaining and fun movie that I enjoyed.
