In the scene near the end, where Travis is beating up Barris, Travis had recently grabbed the blade of the knife when Barris tried to stab him. His hand was shown to be very bloody. However, when the red light and the alarm went on and Travis raised his hands to his head, his hand was completely clean and unharmed. See more »
You suck, don't you?
Yeah, I suck so bad I just skunked you. Which means, you gotta eat your pills.
You're supposed to be nice to me.
I am nice to you. It's not my fault you got no game.
You suck, Travis.

It's as if the title 'The Experiment' refers to Hollywood finally trying to create a remake that surpasses the original.
It's a pale and poor remake of the brilliant German movie 'Das Experiment', which blew my mind first time I saw it.
None of that with 'The Experiment'... Even the presence of two gifted actors (Brody and Withaker) cannot rescue the poor cinematography and awful diluted script. I couldn't even properly empathise with the main character played by Brody. His actions seemed ridiculous put against the prison-experiment backdrop, so terribly written so that there isn't any true logic to his rebellion. It's also very obvious he's not doing half the acting that Moritz Bleibtreu performed in the original.
The casting was terrible, even before the experiment, I could immediately identify which characters were to become guards, and which ones prisoners. Mix this with the poor script-rewrite that put in unnecessary scenes and dialogues and that took out some of the most brilliant scenes in the original, and you get a straight-to-video production that will never be looked back on by movie fanatics anywhere, anytime.
If you have bought, borrowed or downloaded this copy, please burn or delete it. You will be much better off getting Das Experiment instead.
The Experiment has failed!
