Netflix: “Spider Head” [Non-Spoiler Review] – It’s a hashtag show

Netflix has been putting out great content lately. From Project Adam to Stranger Things 4 there was no shortage of amazing things to stream. So of course when Netflix announced Spider written Rhett Reese as well as Paul Wernick (Deadpool) and starring Marvel Chris Hemsworth as well as Miles Teller (Top Shooter: Maverick), one would think this movie would be added to the list of great content that Netflix is ​​throwing at us. Well, think again. For a movie that cost over $100 million, you can’t help but scratch your head and wonder how much it cost to produce. So where did it all go wrong?

Netflix: Spider Head

Two inmates (Miles Teller and Jurney Smollett) forge a bond as they grapple with their pasts in a cutting-edge prison run by a brilliant visionary (Chris Hemsworth) who experiments on his subjects with mind-altering drugs. Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick, Tron: Legacy). Based on the New Yorker short story “Escape from the Spider’s Head” by George Saunders.

My thoughts on Spiderhead

When I first decided to sit down and watch Spider I was excited. I mean how could you not be? Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, director Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick, Tron: Legacy), starring Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, and Jurnee Smollett, this movie had some amazing talent. Don’t get me wrong, this is not one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen, but Spider I just had a hard time getting into it.

The action takes place in a state-of-the-art prison where Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth) experiments on his subjects with mind-altering drugs. Now you see that this could have been a great sci-fi/thriller, but instead it just flopped. Most of the scenes were filmed in ordinary rooms where nothing interesting happened. Most of the excitement in this film, of course, caused the effects of drugs on the prisoners. Luckily, that was enough to get me to keep watching and finish the movie. Overall, it took a long time for things to develop, and some of the most interesting things happened when more than half of the movie was already over.

With a small but amazing cast, it’s hard to believe this movie wasn’t better. The energy and fun nature of Chris Hemsworth was not enough to save this film. While Miles Teller (Jeff) and Jurnee Smollett (Lizzie) were great in this movie, it just felt like the character development could have been a lot better (the actors aren’t to blame).

Everything about Spider Head was supposed to be a great movie, but when the time came, this movie just missed the mark. It was simple and very predictable. The ending was everywhere and was just bad (at least the soundtrack was good). Like I said before, this isn’t one of the worst movies I’ve seen, so give it a try; who knows, maybe you will like it more than me.
