Movie Reviews

Suspense, Mystery, Intrigue..
Ryan | 06/04/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me start out saying I am reviewing the movie itself, and not the Blu-ray release. I have seen it in HD on HBO but have not yet seen the blu-ray (as it is not out yet).

This movie is an excellent suspense / thriller movie. Premise is that a small group of people are brought to a room for a "psychological research study". Basically under the guise that if they participate in the questionaire they will get paid. Things quickly go downhill from there, and soon become caught in an experiment that forces them to fight for survival The story isnt terribly original, but it is spun in such a way that it is definately worth watching. Also it is one of those stories that is best watched without knowing too much about it, as a large part of the movie is trying to figure out whats going on as they feed you little tid-bits of information throughout the movie.

Its not a big budget movie, so they keep things simple. This is not to say its low budget or low quality, they did a good job of knowing what they had and managing to stay within their limits to keep things sharp looking and sounding. The ending of the movie is definately more "small studio" than "big hollywood" as you can tell the ending is more what the director wanted rather than what the studio felt would sell best.

All in all this was a great under-the-radar suspense movie that kept me interested from the very begining until the very end."
