    Synopsis


    The Belko Experiment
    The 80 employees at a Bogotá, Colombia, company called the Belko Corporation are horrified when they are suddenly locked in their office building and ordered to kill each other -- or else face death themselves. Soon, the staff are torn between those willing to give in to their baser instincts, and those arguing that they should stand firm against their captors. John Gallagher Jr., Adria Arjona, Sean Gunn, Tony Goldwyn, and John C. McGinley star in this horror thriller directed by Greg McLean (Wolf Creek). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      I am a huge fan of James Gunn, between his older movies like slither, and of course Guardians of the Galaxy, so when he was doing a return to horror/comedy I had to pick it up... unfortunately this movie has already been done a few times... (see battle royale, severance, and operation end game) - its basically the same plot as those movies (especially operation end game and battle royale) with weak comedy, characters with less depth then their own coffee mugs... and all in all just a boring collection of other peoples over-done ideas. There are some great kills and comedy in it, but it doesnt outweigh the fact that this has been done before, and done better. Heres hoping whatever James Gunn does next is his own idea rather than a collection of others. I put this on ebay as the credits rolled.

      Well I got the feeling that this movie would be just okay, but I was surprised at how well put together this movie was. It gave great character development in short periods of time, and I must say there is a decent amount of thought that went into each character, even characters in the movie for little screen time seemed to have layered development. You actually want a lot of these people to live. The look of this movie is great and the soundtrack is phenomenal. I would recommend everyone to watch.

      After hearing some reviews for this movie I decided to check it out, was expecting it to be a bit different compared to other movies of its type and for the most part it was. Plenty of violence in this one to say the least which when you consider that the only way out is to kill everyone else, well, kind of goes with the territory. Overall it was a decent movie if you are into these type of movies.

      Fun B movie, basic disc bonus features

      Blind purchased this blu-ray on sale. I have always been a fan of survival genre, less so the battle royale genre. The film itself was fairly straightforward, and they did a decent job in getting you to care about several characters. There is a bit of mythology-building too, which I appreciate (but didn't need). Disc has a few basic bonus features. No digital copy.

      Worth a watch but not a keeper

      Entertaining film with social commentary to be gleaned if you're looking for it, but probably something I wouldn't have paid for as there is no backstory for such an extreme storyline and the ending was rushed and anticlimactic. Not for the faint of heart. The descriptor of Office Space meets Battle Royale is a little off, but gives an adequate idea of what to expect.

      This movie was predictable at times, but still one heck of a ride. I had fun watching this. The concept was simply undeniable. I had to see it for myself. If you're ok with brutality, then this is the movie for you. Also, this is done by the director of Guardians of the Galaxy.

      I saw this at the theatre and enjoyed it. Interesting concept that makes you wonder what you would do if confronted with the same situation. Best Buy had the blu ray on sale for "a steal" so I bought a copy for my collection.

      I was kind of hesitant of this one. I didn't really see much on it but has some really good actors so i gave it a shot. For the price it's definitely worth checking out and I know I'm going to watch it multiple times.
