"Spiderhead" was directed by Joseph Kosinski and starring Chris Hemsworth as the genius who uses a group of prisoners as test subjects for a new drug.
Overall, the movie is a tense and gripping thriller that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats from start to finish. Hemsworth's performance is particularly notable, as he portrays a complex and enigmatic character who is both brilliant and ruthless in his pursuit of scientific advancement.

The movie also features a strong supporting cast, including the group of prisoners who are faced with more and more ethical dilemmas and unpredictable side effects of the experimental drug. The film is shot in a gritty and realistic style, which adds to the sense of tension and danger throughout.

While the movie does rely on some familiar tropes of the thriller genre, such as a high-stakes prison break and a race against time, it also offers some interesting twists and turns that keep the audience guessing how this is going to end. Unfortunately I was let down by the final 5 mins., which resulted in a lower appreciation of the entire movie.

The soundtrack rotor throughout the entire movie is great if you are into these classics.

Overall, "Spiderhead" is a well-crafted and entertaining thriller that is sure to satisfy fans of the genre, as well as those looking for a thought-provoking exploration of the ethics of scientific experimentation.
