EXAM has an interesting premise. EXAM is about a bunch of people who took an mysterious, yet bizzare test. A test to enter a mysterious company. It's easy - to me - to get intrigued with its storyline from the very first minutes. Director Stuart Hazeldine succeed to build a MYSTERY surround it. Also he creates a very-well suspense. Hazeldine will not let us get BORED with this movie. The ending went too easy for me.
It spends most of it's runtime posing as an effective and interesting critique of the way corporations operate. Then, with its twist, it whole heartedly supports big business and essentially says corporations implement sexism, racism and the destruction of lives for the greater good, so stop whining. Pretty reprehensible stuff, but often tense and fun beforehand.
The premiss was interesting and the movie went by very fast. Even with a couple of moments when the characters' actions felt a little farfetched the ticking clock made me feel extremely engaged in everything that was going on. Too bad the end was kind of "meh", anticlimactic and a bit messy. I was expecting for White to be the last one standing only to realize he needed all the others to win or something like that.
a very thrilling, intelligent & psychological movie..! it's very entertaining, although it's in the same room the whole time - good discussions & very paranoid moments... if you like "Das Experiment" & i'm talking about the german original version, then you like this one pretty sure too..!
