The Belko Experiment ★★★½

I'm not a biggest fan of the "Humans are the real monsters" movie, because I not just think that this message became a cheesy cliche, it's also untrue. Humans are generally good.

Therefore I appreciate that this is not one of those "Oh shit, everybody kills everybody at the first sign of trouble" movies, but has almost a slasher feel, with a very small group going after the rest, who only tries to kill in self defense or not not at all.

All in all it's more entertaining and suspenseful than expected, thanks to the (mostly) unpredictability of the victims, the sprinkles of dark humor and the good cast.

I don't think that this will be remembered as a beloved classic. Despite all its qualities, it's still too average for that. But if you are in the mood for a well written, directed and acted unapologetic, yet completely unpreachy group dynamic thriller, this is a good choice.
