Goofs

When Dany and Roberto are trapped above the moving elevator, it shows Barry going to the top floor. While this is convenient for the scene, it doesn't make sense for Barry to be heading to an empty floor immediately following orders to kill as many people as possible. Furthermore, in the very next scene he is suddenly on the first floor. See more »

Quotes

The Voice: In two minutes we want thirty of you dead. If thirty of you are not dead, we will end sixty of your lives ourselves. Five, four, three, two, one. Begin.

Serviceable Film, But Could've Been Better
22 March 2017 | by Movie ParadiseSee all my reviews

The strongest part of this film is its premise. It's really fantastic. There is so much possibility for this fun, satirical look at what people will do in certain situations. The film is really filled to the brim with brilliant possibilities. But for the most part, they remain just possibilities. I do think this is a really good script. However, I don't think the execution of this screenplay was as good as if could've been. The characters making decisions and breaking off into groups could have been fascinating and riveting, but it didn't reach the level it should have. The actual streaks of killing could have been so cool to watch, but it comes off as kind of dull. Where the action could have been really inventive and insane, in a Kingsman: The Secret Service kind of way, it ends up being rather rudimentary and bland. There isn't nearly as much electricity or excitement in this film as it deserved to have...
