There has been controversy over both the ethics and scientific rigor of the Stanford prison experiment since nearly the beginning, and it has never been successfully replicated. French academic and filmmaker Thibault Le Texier, in a 2018 book about the experiment, Histoire d'un mensonge ("Story of a lie"), wrote that it could not be meaningfully described as an experiment and that there were no real results to speak of.

When an "inmate" who has diabetic low blood sugars, he correctly says he needs sugar. But later, still with low blood sugar, he says he just needs insulin. That would lower his blood sugar even more resulting in coma or death. See more »
You suck, don't you?
Yeah, I suck so bad I just skunked you. Which means, you gotta eat your pills.
You're supposed to be nice to me.
I am nice to you. It's not my fault you got no game.
You suck, Travis.

The Experiment. Definitely doesn't get the credit it deserves. While its extremely fast paced (even though some say its slow - which is not true), It has an interesting and intriguing storyline with great actors and some twists which, all in all, made me confused, excited, worried and even gave me an intense hatred for some of the characters. Whoever you are, I think you'll enjoy the film all in all. Try not to compare it to what most say it's a remake of - it's its own film and should be acclaimed for its self, without comparison to other versions. Fast paced and constant tension building throughout, which is just what I love in a movie. While it is not hugely thriller-like, or physiologically stimulating as may be expected, it is a great movie, especially for younger viewers (15+ as stated). Some explicit, adult natured themes should be expected, so kids should stay well away from this movie, however the worst stuff is fee and far between, so can be avoided - although you'll be missing some of the best parts of the movie.
Don't listen to those who say its awful - it's a great film, and don't knock it because of others opinions. Make your own judgement.
