The Loft (2015)
When a dead woman is found handcuffed to a bed in a loft apartment owned by 5 married men, they only have each other to question. They can’t tell anyone because this loft is a secret to everyone for obvious reasons so that only leaves 1 of the 5 as the killer. What exactly happened in the loft in the last 24 hours?
If you look at the reviews for The Loft around the internet, it is destroyed by pretty much everyone. I won’t sit here and say The Loft is great, but it kept my attention for 2 hours and did what it was suppose to do and that is entertain. The story is a mystery so right off the bat it has something interesting going for it. James Marsden and Karl Urban are familiar faces so that is a plus and, as I said before, it keeps your attention for long enough. Don’t expect great acting because it simply isn’t needed and the story might be predictable to some, but for me, I can never figure this kind of stuff out. I liked the ending and felt that it worked with the story. I enjoy movies with decent twists and this one has 2.
The Loft is the kind of movie you stream online when you are bored at home or when you have watched all the other good stuff on TV, but even for a rental that you take a chance on, it’s a decent watch. I wouldn’t go see this in theaters nor would I pay any money for it, but the time invested isn’t wasted so give it a go if the story sounds interesting. Co-starring Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, Elaine Cassidy, Isabel Lucas, Matthias Schoenaerts, Kali Rocha, Valerie Cruz, and Robert Wisdom.
6/10 Stars – Obviously not the greatest movie, but it was entertaining for a “rental/streaming” only movie.
