When the friends are standing on the roof waiting for their helicopter they all have the exact same type and color of luggage. Why would four separate groups of people have the same luggage? The propmaster clearly just bought four sets of the same thing to save time. See more »
I was quite surprised to see a pretentious self righteous review for this movie and after having watched it I can only conclude that the reviewer must have been confused about what they were reviewing.
The movie centers around the premise of the hedonistic lifestyle of a wealthy individual Neil (Danny Masterson) who takes pleasure in indulging himself and his group of friends with the best experiences that money can buy.
An excursion to a luxury home on island includes a trip to an exotic night club that has a sexy stylized feel similar to attending a performance art show on steroids. The opportunity to try a designer drug like no other presents itself at the club and Neil and has posse have an experience like no other the only catch is they are told they can only take it once, but told why.
The next day they are keen to recreate the experience and its then that everything starts to unravel.
The movie does not set out to preach about the dangers of drugs and it is not the theme yet you cant help but recognize the parallels between the decent into psychosis that some are unfortunate enough to experience with recreational drug use and the aberrant behavior of those taking URGE.
The ending has a interesting twist and after the final credits a short scene sets up the possibility of a follow up movie.
This movie is both engaging and disturbing in the same way as a car crash can be, you know people are being harmed but you cant help but keep watching out of macabre curiosity.
A solid 7/10 anyone who thinks otherwise needs to get over themselves.
