A great idea with excellent performances, Spiderhead is also bogged down by some strange choices and pacing issues. Namely, while it’s great at building a sense of tension and even dread, when it comes to the payoff the film starts to feel rushed and haphazard. Still, that tension is done well enough. It’s worth stating again this is a great idea, and a damned intriguing what-if scenario. And yeah, all the actors are giving it their all. Hemsworth in particular is having a ton of fun and shows a wild range of emotions. But yeah, the awkward pacing issues and some direction that just feels off makes this an inconsistent experience. Worth you time? Sure! It’s a flawed but interesting journey.
