Consensus: The Belko Experiment offers a few moments of lurid fun for genre enthusiasts, but lacks enough subversive smarts to consistently engage once the carnage kicks in.

Barry Hertz
Globe and Mail

A lean, mean, bloody comedy of the darkest order, Greg McLean's The Belko Experiment is pure genre fun.

For all its promise to be a wry commentary on the savagery of office politics, "The Belko Experiment" is more like an experiment in how many cracked-open skulls can be crammed into one movie.

The surrender to expediency is unrestrained, but it's only at the close that McLean indulges the macabre and expressionistic, giving the atrocities a counterpoint.

By the end of the film, you're left with the unshakable feeling that everyone involved, from actors to filmmakers to the audience, is, and should have been, better than material like this.

The Age (Australia)

Going about its grisly business with undisguised relish, the film comes closer to the chilly spirit of science fiction writer J.G. Ballard than director Ben Wheatley did in his recent, overwrought adaptation of Ballard's novel High-Rise.

You may think of Dilbert one minute, the Nuremberg defense the next. No, really.

FILMINK (Australia) inventively gory, frequently funny thrill ride that's just the thing to kick back with at the end of a long week in the rat race.

A brutal social experiment but fails at providing a worthwhile plot.
