Plot twists, lighting changes and shifts of tone work hard to sustain our attention, but the script sometimes becomes too involved in solving the structural challenges it has set itself.
Claustrophobic psychological-drama is a flawed but intriguing exercise in script writing ingenuity and economy.
A tight psychological thriller with a slight sci-fi edge. A great find.
Low-budget but handsomely mounted cross between Cube and 12 Angry Men, with some script input by mystery writer Agatha Christie and literary critic Terry Eagleton.
An intriguing yet uneven thriller...
Everything is just slightly mysterious and off-kilter.
Benefits from a bit of dark humor, some critically important editing tricks, and a mystery that's actually sort of ... interesting.
The ninth person working on this puzzle will be the viewer.
Exam can't follow through on its ideas and premise.
Despite their supposed cleverness, all the candidates here make mistakes that would be avoided by anybody with even the slightest knowledge of how these situations usually pan out in movies, and the whole thing gets very silly by the end.
The tale is ingeniously developed, the suspense well maintained, and you'll think more highly of it if you have to leave five minutes before the disappointing pay-off.
This low-budget British chamber piece has an intriguing scenario, so it's a shame that the po-faced, sci-fi-tinged screenplay fixates on the applicants' efforts to detect invisible ink on their exam papers.
Although it begins quite well, Exam is too unoriginal and only draws inevitable comparisons to The Apprentice and films like Cube and The Method. However, the real problem is how pointless the story really is, including a frustrating ending.
Flawed, but still worthwhile answer to time-pass.
The premise is nihilistic but pretty cool. In the near future, eight strangers are applying for a job and a company that are not much more specified than that. They come together during the final exam, a white sheet of paper in front of then. What's missing is a question. The discussions and conflicts that arise as the clock is ticking down from 80 minutes´are sometimes realistic and sometimes a bit forced. It doesn't exactly help that none of the characters is particularly likable, but their struggle to come up with a solution to the situation is still entertaining, sometimes even exciting. The twist towards the end doesn't exactly blow you away but is still neat enough and it is refreshing that the solution lacks any sign of cynicism.
This story has been told a million times and with a frustrating back plot that is only hinted at I was left feeling exasperated by the time the not completley unintelligent conclusion finally came. I would say that this movie is definitely going to cut people straight down the middle and was nowhere near the worse movie I have ever seen, but I don't think I will be watching it again. Disappointing.
