Das Experiment (The Experiment) Reviews
A good film, well acted, but possibly not quite as good as a lot of reviews have led me to believe, I think, because the ending tends to go on for a little too long.
A shame that the director has also bitten the hollywood chain of doing useless remakes. I guess he's the one swimming in a pool full of naked women right now, while i'm here writting this review :X
This German film is a great piece of psychological horror.
All in all, very recommended !
While you can guess the outcome from a mile away, it's still intriguing throughout and the 2 hour duration damn near flies by, especially when all hell breaks loose. This movie is also a prime example of early 2000's German cinematography. It's fast paced, surreal, and visceral like a MTV music video, when MTV was still good. It feels great and fits the mood perfectly.
Though overall, this movie is worth your time, there are some problems. As I said, the movie is predictable near the end and there's an "everything that could go wrong, will go wrong" feel to the whole thing, that rides throughout. It's not a deal breaker, but it gets annoying. Also the final frames leave much to be desired, since it goes for the art house route instead of showing more of the aftermath.
Das Experiment, it's fun, disturbed, and visceral. A great time with friends or by yourself. Definitely recommended.
PROS: Tense, well acted, nails the late 90's vibe well, music video-esque at times
CONS: Weak ending, predictable
