The Belko Experiment is pretty much Battle Royal meets Office Space.
The story is very simple. In a twisted social experiment, 80 Americans are locked in their high-rise corporate office in Bogotá, Colombia and ordered by an unknown voice coming from the company’s intercom system to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed.
The Review (Spoiler Free)
The Belko Experiment is another horror genre where group of people are trapped in a room/builder and forced to do things against their will. The movie started out as nice day at the office and quickly turned into Battle Royal.
The movie doe starts out very promising, but it quickly turned into very predictable mess. This type of movie does have surprise or twist ending and The Belko Experiment does have one, but I wasn’t impressed with the ending. I was disappointed fact that it doesn’t really explain the movie at all. There are lots of question unanswered.
Even with few of the disappointments, the movie isn’t terrible. The acting is pretty good and there are few familiar actors in the movie such as Tony Goldwyn, John C. McGinley, Michael Rooker from Walking Dead. Even with predictable story, the action and suspense start right away and it doesn’t stop until the end of the movie. Even though the movie doesn’t really get into each character, towards end, you start to root for your favorite characters.
If you like this type of movie, do check out Circle, Cube trilogy, Breathing Room, Exam, Killing Room, Saw series, and Fermat’s Room.
In the Nutshell
The movie is not very original but it isn’t terrible. I give 3 out of 5 stars.
