‘Circle’ is a thriller/horror movie from 2015, not to get confused with Netflix’s 2020 reality show ‘The Circle’, although you can find ‘Circle’ on Netflix as well. ‘Circle’ is about fifty strangers who wake up in a mysterious chamber without any recollection how they got there or what is going on. Every two minutes one will die by a system of voting, if they don’t vote one will die at random. Old, young, white, black, Asian, rich, poor, educated, and uneducated it doesn’t matter they’re all there. Obviously there is a big cast since there is fifty people, no real big names are in the movie. However, it does star Michael Nardelli (The Collection), Lawrence Kao (Wu Assassins), and Carter Jenkins (Aliens in the Attic).
‘Circle’ is about humanity, and our thought process in a difficult decision. I respect that, and I like the concept of this film. Ultimately though, it falls flat. It’s just fifty people arguing for an hour and a half while one by one they get killed till there’s only one left. I could have just watched ‘Survivor’ if I wanted to see people argue and get voted off. I give this one a 4/10.
