Had its moments...
29 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Elevator" doesn't really bring anything to the party, so to speak, that hasn't already been seen in other movies of similar concept. I mean, if you have seen one movie with people stuck in an elevator, then you basically seen them all.

And while "Elevator" did have some good moments, I can't claim to say that it is a particularly outstanding or memorable movie. The story, like all others of this type, is about a group of people trapped in an elevator, and as anxiety sets in people show their true, and often ugly, nature. But wait, just for a twist, there is a bomb on the elevator too.

What worked for "Elevator" was the acting, a good cast and the dialogue. As for the story itself, not so much.

"Elevator" is hardly a movie that made a lasting impression, and it was just too bland and generic even for this particular genre of being trapped in an elevator, if there is such a thing.

Predictable at every point, the movie followed a very scripted how-to-make-a-trapped-in-an-elevator-movie guidebook.

I am forced to rate "Elevator" a mere four out of ten stars given its weak storyline and lack of ability to captivate and entertain.
