Spiderhead Review: Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller star in a Netlfix movie that isn’t much better than its nasty name

Adapted from a short history of the New Yorker, the premise includes a near-future prison that requires no bars as prisoners are controlled and given space management in exchange for wearing surgically implanted devices that allow their guards to control them through mind-changing drugs.

Yet almost immediately it becomes painfully clear that the owner of the facility, Steve (Hemsworth, whose Physics “Thor”. is effectively hidden through the wardrobe), uses this space-age innovation to experiment on their wards, using the tools of a fast-talking salesperson to persuade them to “respect our agreement” and that this system is in their favor.

No, but the extent to which Steve turns them into human guinea pigs is slow as he seems to be looking for real-world applications of this technology that can extend far beyond the prison in a way that doesn’t trust the big pharmacy. “.

Meanwhile, a more conventional bond begins to form between two of the inmates, Jeff (Teller), who seems to be one of Steve’s favorite subjects; and Lizzie (Jerny Smollett), who, like Jeff, nurses scars from the outside world.

Director Joseph Kosinski had time while the Maverick sat on the shelf to come out and direct this relatively small, almost claustrophobic film, although with this film it still makes big theatrical profits, it’s hard to imagine that its directors would have chosen this restrained crap – written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernicke of Deadpool “but shows some of the lush energy of this franchise – for his next project.

For Netflix, the enticing combination of elements in “Spiderhead” – a really nasty title, by the way, despite the marketability of spiders – is probably enough to take the film to its most popular level, which can certainly be hailed as a victory the criteria that the service uses to maintain the result.

Still, it’s a gift to Netflix’s marketing department rather than to viewers who enjoy its network. Because this is one of those movies that is forgotten almost as soon as it’s over and doesn’t even require any chemical intervention to erase the memory.

“Spiderhead” premieres June 17 on Netflix. It is rated R.
