The Belko Experiment 1.0 stars

Belko Experiment movie poster

How’s this for a genuinely frightening premise: a faceless corporation outfits 80 of its employees with explosive implant tracers, confines them to a Colombian office building, and obliges the staff to participate in a game of last man or woman standing. All director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and screenwriter James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) had to do was play it straight and ushers would have been peeling aghast audiences members from off the ceiling. Instead, the laughs are beggarly — knowing that at any given moment his brain could be liquefied, all John McGinley can think about is perving out on a hot co-worker — the shocks meanly inadequate, and the overall level of horror greatly diminished due to both. A resourceful windup only acts to point up how badly stitched together the rest of the quilting is. With John Gallagher, Jr., Tony Goldwyn, and Adria Arjona. 2016.
