Imagine if The Hunger Games were rated R and combined with Office Space - that's right, white-collar, blood-soaked mayhem ensues. I wasn't expecting much out of The Belko Experiment, but I have to say it did what it did well. It puts regular people in an impossible situation (kill or be killed) and we watch as this small piece of humanity descends into madness. The plot has been done before in different ways, but it still feels fresh enough here, with a wicked satirical edge, that it's worth watching.

Bloody, gory, deranged, and surprisingly enough, a darkly comical thrill ride. The Belko Experiment basically crosses the passive aggressive social commentary in works such as Office Space with the gruesome violence from schlock such as The Purge or to a lesser extent, The Hunger Games.
Director Greg McLean flexes his muscles with the blood and guts splatterfest. There is some exciting and intense action mixed with some pretty dark and sadistic violence. It's unflinchingly brutal.
At the same time though, the humor and satirical elements are pretty funny. It helps that the cast isn't bad either. The cast is made up of "oh yea that guy" actors and actresses, some of whom made a few horror movies or similar genres. Admittedly, the characters are introduced with one quirk or personality …
