Circle (2015) Synopsis:

50 people wake up trapped in a circle with a deadly beam killing one of them every 2 minutes.

Circle (2015) Review:

The circle is very similar to these other movies where people wake up in a strange place, filled with deadly traps, with no ideas why they are here in the first place. Other examples include the exam, The Human Race or the precursor Cube.

The concept is simple: 50 humans around a circle, a beam kills one person every 2 minutes, and people can vote for whoever will be killed next. This simple, but just like a game of poker, it introduces great subtleties such as calculating the odds, bluffing, tricking others into voting for someone else, etc. The movie is a decent attempt at making something interesting out of nothing. I mean, the movie probably cost the salary of the 50 actors, and the rent of a black room – there is virtually nothing more to it. Yet, it is never boring and manages to bring interesting ideas all along. Thereee is also good suspense up until the very end.

I didn’t realize it immediately, but the movie made me think a lot, and a week later I am still stuck thinking about it. I think the ending is what will turn most people off. I personally found it all right, and I don’t think they could have done much better anyway. Thereee is a public for such a movie, and if you are of one of those who enjoyed the movies listed above, this one is definitely worth a watch.
