The Belko Experiment REVIEWS

  • Gory? Sure. Fun Gory? Meh..

    March 21st, 2017

    You know the story. Heads explode, people are stabbed, sliced, and shot. I'd rather see 'Final Destination' type creativity with this sub- genre. . It's decent enough to watch. Nothing to rush out and see right away, though.. Gore without creativity no longer amuses me. It once did. But I'm a grow ass man, now.. Please hit the "this review was not...

  • A movie that's been done 100 times, but passes the time adequately.

    September 12th, 2016

    Eighty American workers in Bogota get locked inside their office building and an announcement over the intercom gives them half an hour to kill any two of the employees. When they don't comply, the rules are amped up, and an American Battle Royale (down to the 'collars') ensues. . The Belko Experiment managed to accomplish the difficult feat of ne...

  • Fun at first, ultimately a waste of time...

    March 26th, 2017

    The set up for the movie had a somewhat interesting concept at its core: what do people do when they are trapped in a situation where the only way out is to kill others? Not a completely original idea, but it has some potential to be thought provoking if there is some kind of message it is trying to send, or some aspect of society it is trying to ...

  • A near-ideal mix of gory kills and organic laughs

    September 11th, 2016

    The concept of director Greg McLean and producer/writer James Gunn's THE BELKO EXPERIMENT won't seem overly original to those who've seen BATTLE ROYALE or really any movie in which people are forced to hunt or kill folks they know and like, but in Gunn's hands it's a whole lot more fun: office workers for a Bogota-based non-profit are trapped in t...

  • A bloody good time.

    March 9th, 2017

    The Belko Experiment is a messed up film and it's wildly entertaining.. The Belko Experiment is an indie film that's essentially about a office building that gets shut down and the people inside are forced to kill each other.. Here's the good.. The story in this movie keeps you on the edge of your seat practically the whole run time of the movie. ...

  • Serviceable Film, But Could've Been Better

    March 22nd, 2017

    The strongest part of this film is its premise. It's really fantastic. There is so much possibility for this fun, satirical look at what people will do in certain situations. The film is really filled to the brim with brilliant possibilities. But for the most part, they remain just possibilities. I do think this is a really good script. However, I...

  • Battle Royale in an office, meh.

    April 19th, 2017

    This review of The Belo Experiment is spoiler free. *** (3/5). BEFORE HE CLEANED his writing for the family-friendly blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy (both volumes), writer-director James Gunn conducted the script to The Belko Experiment. A horror slasher/whodunit thriller. Both forming the two sides of Gunn, however before he had blockbusting ...

  • A fun shallow thriller that lacks originality but entertaining.

    March 19th, 2017

    The Belko Experiment is a bloody mess fun that goes for so long until it wears down with the body count. Produced and written by James Gunn, the same guy that can write a fun horror thriller like Dawn of the Dead or Slither (a little grossed out film). The script is able to flash out the characters by giving them characteristics on who they are in...

  • Sad for it being just average

    June 11th, 2017

    After watching I do believe that "The Belko Experiment" would've been a much better film overall under the direction of James Gunn. I don't think Greg McLean does full justice to Gunn's script and the "Experiment" fell a bit short, at least for me. Its not a bad movie in any aspect but for me it lacked the extra detail and effort to make it someth...

  • Repetitive and Thoroughly Unpleasant

    March 20th, 2017

    The Belko Experiment is a nasty, gory, chaotic little horror film that pits an office building full of co-workers against each other in a bloody battle of last man/woman standing. This much you probably already know from the trailer. It's a plot that can be succinctly surmised on a cocktail napkin so it's not like you need much to prime you for wh...
