All of this dazzling spectacle serves as a flashy distraction from the thin story and flat acting, but this is a wildly entertaining movie that breathes life into the Kong franchise.
“The Belko Experiment” is little more than dumbed down carnage that’s being marketed to educated genre fans and as a result, the project fails.
This movie tries to cover far too much ground and sadly drowns in the provocative source material.
It’s an arty freak show in the grandest of the schlock tradition, a horrific horror film that’s also elegantly horrific.
While I didn’t love the film, it’s well crafted, well photographed, and well written in a clear, concise and straightforward way. But with such a compelling story, I just wish it had been so much more.
When you have to suffer through a full hour of movie before it starts to actually get compelling it’s a failure in my book.
