  1. This is a very didactic, aggressively sad movie. From the start, it feels like a charity funded anti-drug work. Good Christians against the dark soul of drugs. Characters are very shallow, there is a bible in most of the scenes. All young people are good in essence, except for their inability to assess the outcome of their actions. I hated the movie because from the start you can guess the direction it is taking. Obviously there is nothing, no information or emotion, about ecstasy. You might as well replace the pills in the movie with some other bad thing and give the kids another lesson. But you also need to change the title of the movie, that's evidently important.

  2. The beginning of this film picked up at a good pace and I expected that the plot would unfold and continue to be intriguing at the very least. However, my expectations were greatly dismantled after about a half an hour in. I so badly wanted to stop watching out of boredom but I kept thinking at some point, the movie would pick up.

    The acting as not bad at all, nor the art direction that the film took. However, there was a lot of character forming relationships that didn't make any sense to me at all. First off, the mother didn't seem much of a "practicing catholic", she seemed very uninvolved with both her daughters lives. The whole priest using that pill in the wine was just very strange and nothing ever seemed to come of it.

    More importantly, it never explains what exactly the pill is. I'm unsure why the film is named ecstasy because those pills were nothing of the sort.

    I think this film lost its direction right after the crude bathroom rape scene. I was left with a frustration as to why nothing was even wrapped up. I'm used to films where there isn't a happy ending so that wasn't the problem. Its just this one had very little direction to begin with, and to end it on the same note was simply unnerving.

  3. This is probably the first movie I have to give 1 out of 10 stars. It is completely senseless and a waste of time, packed with clichés over and over and has no real plot or a main character to follow. It looks like someone put together all known drug clichés, rolled the dice to start with something and then just added silly cliché after cliché after cliché. If we wouldn't have been three of us to watch it and started making fun out of it after 15 minutes (!!) I would have stopped the DVD not even close to 30 minutes.

    And everything what I like or interests me about drug- and electro music films also failed in this one, like music, good clubbing scenes, interesting nightlife characters and so on.

    Do your self a favor and don't watch this. You will be very disappointed.

    Ah, didn't know what exactly to expect but I got what was way worse than I expected. I really did honestly like the cinematography and the acting. Those were the main points of the film, and if it wasn't for them, this film would've gotten a 1. The film sounded pretty interesting from the summary and everything so I tried watching it on Netflix. This is one of those films I just turned off in the middle of viewing it. Really that bad. Another thing that was really weird is that the main drug in the film isn't even ecstasy, so why even call the film ecstasy telling the viewers that your about to see a film ABOUT ECSTASY. Really stupid. But this is the first film on my reviews that has gotten below a 5, congratulations Ecstasy. 4/10.
