Here’s a movie that had a release date pushed back five years. We meet five guys, Vince, Chris, Luke, Marty, and Philip (Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, and Matthias Schoenaerts). These five guys are not very good husbands and decide to purchase a nice and spacious loft where they can take their prostitutes and women they are having an affair with. They buy this so their wives have no trace of knowing where they were. There will be no credit card bills saying they rented a hotel room. This was a smart move on their part. That is until now. A young female is found dead in the bed and clearly one out of the five men have killed her. No one is confessing who did this. We find out in this movie what exactly happened to that girl.
First off, The Loft had a release date that was pushed back five years for obvious reasons. The problem with this movie is that it’s just not any good. This movie had a very recognizable cast, but none of them delivered an entertaining and even believable acting job. I was very disappointed with the way this movie turned out because I liked the idea of it. Sadly, this movie was just 100 minutes of nonsense. I felt as if no one knew what they were doing when making tho movie. This was just not good!
The Loft jumped from one thing to the other. I liked how it started off, but then it took a very weird turn and left you saying, “what the fuck is happening?” This movie was all over the place and just makes you frustrated almost the whole time watching it. It is such a shame to see some really good actors go and play these terrible and very dull roles. You may know Eric Stonestreet from ABC’s, Modern Family. He is one of the best actors from that show and after seeing this, you would think he never performed in any other role in his lifetime.
The Loft is a movie where none of the characters are interesting. Each different character left you more and more disappointed. This movie was just a waste of what was an awesome premise. This movie is filled with so many weaknesses that you can’t even look for anything good about this movie. Even when the expected twist came, you still were not satisfied and could not wait for this to end. This is not one that you want to see and I definitely do not recommend giving this one a look.
Overall, The Loft is a movie with a great premise that goes absolutely nowhere. We see nothing but terrible acting, writing, and directing.
Grade= D- (Terrible!)
