This movie looks like a remake from Forest Whitaker Adrien Brody 2010 The Experiment. What y'all may not notice, similar experiemtS had been conducted all through the history of cruel mankind.
The original Stanford prison experiment was in part a response to the Milgram experiment at Yale beginning in 1961 and published in 1963. The Third Wave was a 1967 recreation of Nazi Party dynamics by high school teacher Ron Jones in Palo Alto, California. Although the veracity of Jones' accounts has been questioned, several participants in the study have gone on record to confirm the events.
Then came Stanford University psychology professor Philip Zimbardo, on August 1420, 1971, led a team of researchers, funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and was of interest to both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps as an investigation into the causes of conflict between military guards and prisoners. The experiment, turned out to be a classic study on the psychology of imprisonment and is a topic covered in most introductory psychology textbooks.
After 2001 German film Das Experiment, and acts of prisoner torture and abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq were publicized in March 2004, psychologists Alex Haslam and Steve Reicher conducted another Prison Study in 2006. This was a partial replication of the Stanford prison experiment conducted with the assistance of the BBC, which broadcast events in the study in a documentary series called The Experiment. Their results and conclusions differed from Zimbardo's and led to a number of publications on tyranny, stress, and leadership（REALLY?）.
So tell me, do we expect anything you haven't seen nor read from the result of this EXPERIMENT? I found this movie predictable & bored indeed.
