The Belko Experiment (2016)
A group of 83 American expatriates who work in a building in Sao Paulo, Brazil, find themselves trapped in their workplace; a voice emits over the speaker system, forcing them through a series of murderous moral decisions.
best movie i've ever seen.
Great movie! If you want to be entertained and have a few good laughs, see this movie. The music is also very good,
It was OK. I don't see why everyone loves it so much. It wasn't very smart or deep or well-directed.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
A poor version of Battle Royale, nothing really original, as there have been numerous movies over the years sharing the same plot. There are lots of employees in this company, so the directors try to interest us in only a handful of them, which sadly does not go that well either, since we do not know any background information on any of these characters. The vast majority of this film is extremely blatant and predictable, you feel as if you have watched this movie a hundred times, because this movie has no fresh ideas, they just recycle the old gory scenes from older cult classics of the genre. When you make a movie of this sort involving a large amount of people, you need a way to kill them off and quickly, which takes a huge amount of suspense and fun out of it, since more than half of the characters are utterly useless, running and screaming providing next to no entertainment. If a situation like this occured in reality more than 6 out of 80 would be ready to fight until death just to survive and return to their families. Instead of that the complete opposite happens in this film, people die for absolutely no reason without giving any effort to survive. All in all, a movie you can easily pass on, nothing new, same old genre shticks overused into a compilation of really bloody and unoriginal scenes. The ending of this movie implies an obvious sequel, which could be a potential possibility to make things right, since the premise of this sequel seems to be much more interesting. If you love this survival horror genre, there are far better movies to watch, for example, ''Battle Royale'', ''Nine Dead'', ''Circle'' and ''Exam'' just to name a few.
Crappy beginning middle and end. Literally no closure at the end. Hoped for an explanation for the stupid movie but nah.
The Belko Experiment, Saw meets Battle Royale. Not a patch on either of those films, but the slightly lo-fi production really gives this an edge and it's very effective. Kill or be killed. Good guys, bad guys, really bad guys. It's a moral bloodbath!
SPOILERS! When I heard the concept, I was excited. It was marketed as "Office Space meets Battle Royale." It was not. The first thirty minutes are promising but it's all downhill from there. You have a horror film that has John C. McGinley and Michael Rooker and they aren't even the main antagonist? McGinley is more like a side character. He could've been a great main baddie. Like an evil Bob. Instead he's just playing creeper, and not even a likable creeper. Haha. Rooker is totally wasted as well. Tony Goldwyn, while a competent slimeball in Ghost does not seem like he should be the main baddie, a special ops guy who easily gets bludgeoned at the end? That's one of many nitpick things (killing off Dany in a lame way, not even a struggle; lame payoff). The movie doesn't know whether it wants to be funny or serious. It should've been played for laughs (a la Cabin in the Woods), instead it's just kind of depressing. Most of the people who get mowed down don't deserve it. If anything, the cast is good, to their credit...most notably James Gunn. But yeah, disappointed.
