Far from a classic, The Experiment delivers exactly what you expect. A group of people are paid to take part in an experiment that involves locking them up in a closed down prison. A few are told to be guards, the rest prisoners. A small list of rules is handed to the guards, ones that must be followed or enforced. This sets the stage for a “evil that men can do” type of lesson. Adrien Brody does a fine job with a predictable role and no one plays a guy going down the road to Looneyville better than Forest Whitaker. A great buildup leads to a climax one wishes went a bit further…after watching i got the feeling the original German film probably had sharper teeth. This experiment is a success for the movie fan looking for an entertaining 90 or so minutes…much better than Brody’s last few flicks.
