The Platform (El Hoyo) Reviews

    Fantastic! The kind of horror that isn't gruesome but leaves that pit in your stomach that you can't shake. Human nature.

    The amount of intrigue, metaphor, and shocking horror that comes from the first 2 acts of The Platform is astounding. It is nothing short of gripping in its premise: the life of horror an occupant of this dystopian prison lives and the motives of those who constructed it. It does, however, have some trouble sticking its landing. The metaphor of the ending is more or less clear, but it doesn't feel as significant as I hoped it would. Nevertheless, this is some good and freaky stuff.

    A film that explores questions around individualism, wealth distribution and revolution through the means of a great story that engages you from start to finish. Great casting, dialog and well executed all around

    This movie absolutely sucked. My biggest regret in life is clicking the play button for it. I cannot believe that it has an audience rating of 72%. That is just a lie. Please do not put yourself through the torture of watching this. It is so f***ing slow. I wish I was the people at the last level so I could die instead of watching this. If I could rate it a zero, I would. But sadly that is not an option. This movie is rotten.

    Not super special plot ending, but I liked the movie atmosphere and I enjoyed watching it. I would recommend this if you like dystopic scifi movies.

    Cruel, thought-provoking and not good to have some Snacks along, but a good watch overall.
