Trivia

John Gallagher Jr. auditioned for a role in a previous film directed by James Gunn (who wrote this film) but wasn't right for the part. However, Gunn thought he was the best actor he had seen in an audition and vowed to work with Gallagher again, thus a part was written for him. See more »

Popcorn movie
23 March 2017 | by (SLC, UT) – See all my reviews

The Belko Experiment - Some movies you see for the intriguing story, while others maybe for the actor or director involved. And then there are times when you just want to shut your brain off for a while and eat some popcorn. This is most definitely a case of the latter.

The 'kill or be killed' concept has been done numerous times, so there isn't anything groundbreaking here. Rather than a bunch of teenagers a la Hunger Games, it's 80 coworkers in an office building. Sometimes these stories can really bring out that 'what would you do' feeling. This one doesn't take itself too seriously, so you won't be doing a whole lot of introspection.

It's an hour and a half of a concept I've already seen, and it has gratuitous gore, B- C- and D-list actors, and dated special effects. That's not your typical recipe for success, yet somehow the movie makes it work. So maybe that was the experiment all along. 6.5/10
