    Full of intrigue, The Loft is a dark and mysterious erotic thriller. When a woman is found dead in a loft rented by five friends for secret sexual liaisons they start to turn on each other as they attempt to discover what happened and who is behind the woman's murder. Karl Urban, James Marsden and Wentworth Miller lead the cast and deliver fairly solid performances. And the script does a good job at crafting an engaging murder mystery with shocking twists and reveals (though it does use a couple of standard tropes). However, the characters are a little underdeveloped and the final plot twist is a bit rushed. Yet while it has a few weaknesses, The Loft is a suspenseful and provocative film.

    This is film is so fucking stupid. I just love how many times the characters keep saying "the loft" in this film. You could really play a drinking game based on it. I get that it's the title of the film, but these guys are so fucking obsessed with having an apartment to themselves. It's like they're trying to move out of their parents' house for the first time or something ahahaha. They even have some Fight Club-esque rules for this fucking apartment. So dumb. Wish I had never watched this film.

    For a tale that was deemed worthy to be remade three times in less than a decade, it's pretty underwhelming.

    Where do I begin? These actors must have needed a paycheque really bad, because this film is almost too bad to bother releasing in my opinion. "The Loft" follows a group of five married men who bring women to a loft that they own, to do whatever they please, behind their spouses' backs. Once they find a woman murdered in their bed, they must find out which of them is responsible. Cold messages throughout and with none of the characters really evolving and coming to their senses, this film makes you feel disgusting inside for even having watched it. As the film unravels entirely through flashbacks and conversations in one room, I felt myself not caring, due to the fact that you need to pay attention to every little detail to figure out a conclusion that is not even that interesting to begin with. I will admit, this film had me guessing at first, so I give it props for that, but by the time it reaches the third act, bye bye brain. There are a million different twists in the end of this film, so many to the point that I pretty much gave up keeping track. When you reach the final verdict, it is so dumb that the writer of this film must have given up. Simultaneously trying too hard and not hard enough to be clever, "The Loft" fails on multiple occasions. This is one of the worst films of 2015 so far.
