Consensus: Populated with characters as unpleasant as its sleazy storyline, The Loft is uninhabitable for all but the least demanding erotic thriller fans.

Frank Scheck
Hollywood Reporter

Erotic thrillers are a time-tested genre, but this effort, scripted by Wesley Strick, is neither erotic nor thrilling.

There's no redeeming this softcore nonsense, which plays like a script that Storage Wars stumbled across in Joe Eszterhas's old locker.

This film isn't a guilty pleasure and it's not a thriller. It's just dumb.

This new iteration proves such a dour hodgepodge of bad behavior, bald-faced misogyny and ping-ponging alliances, it's more alienating than alluring.

The Loft is a film that can't decide what it wants. It's a male fantasy, and a cautionary tale. It's sleazy in concept, and timid in execution. It punishes its protagonists for their transgressions, then lets them off the hook.

Village Voice

The Loft's boorish leads aren't sensible enough to be worth caring about, making the film's character-driven conclusion feel like a self-defeating cop-out.

Plausibility isn't in the cards for this odious excuse for a thriller. This is all about sexy danger, for sociopathic, misogynistic values of 'sexy danger.'

For a tale that was deemed worthy to be remade three times in less than a decade, it's pretty underwhelming.

A lazy drama, it gets to a point where you couldn't care less who committed the crime.
