Chris Hemsworth ‘s Netflix’s ‘Spiderhead’ is enjoyable, but ‘loses its way,’ say critics.
After his action film ‘Extraction,’ which was one of the most-watched movies during the epidemic, this will be Hemsworth’s newest Netflix offering.
‘Thor: Love and Thunder,’ starring Chris Hemsworth, is only a few weeks away, but it’s already generating hype with his other upcoming film, ‘Spiderhead.’ The Netflix film received mixed reviews from critics with a 57 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating. While the Australian actor got praise for his performance with Miles Teller in ‘Top Gun: Maverick,’ the narrative suffered a setback.
According to Netflix, the official synopsis reads: “Inmates wear a surgically implanted device that distributes quantities of mind-altering pharmaceuticals in return for commuted sentences in a state-of-the-art jail managed by bright visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth). There aren’t any bars, cells, or orange jumpsuits to be found. Volunteers who are confined in Spiderhead are free to be themselves. They’ll be till they’re not. They’re a better version of themselves at times. Do you want to lighten up? There is a medication for it. Do you find yourself at a loss for words? There’s also a medicine for it. However, as two patients, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), build a bond, their journey to redemption becomes more complicated, as Abnesti’s experiments begin to test the boundaries of free will entirely.”
Robert Kojder of Flickering Myth said the film wasn’t as grim as it was made out to be. “Spiderhead isn’t as as gloomy and ethically demanding as the trailer suggests. When it begs for a nastier, more sadistic approach without abandoning the dark comedy, it’s all played a little too safe “opined the reviewer “For a film that’s so realistic in other areas, Spiderhead appears to purposely dance around the fact that most individuals don’t need to be pushed that far to injure others,” observed Katie Rife of Polygon.
The Guardian thought the film lost its stride at times, while Screen rant called it a “intriguing thriller.” According to The Empire, Hemsworth’s performance was highlighted, saying, “While he’s entertaining, the role lacks a sense of danger, which is a problem considering that this is billed as a tight two-hander. He’s a bit of a let-down as Spider head’s main arachnid.” Joseph Kosinski’s Spiderhead is a surprisingly thrilling experience built upon an intriguing premise and tightly wound screenplay, according to Tilt magazine. “Sitting comfortably between an episode of Black Mirror and a fun genre exercise akin to Steven Soderbergh’s Kimi or Unsane, Joseph Kosinski’s Spiderhead is a surprisingly thrilling experience built upon an intriguing premise and tightly wound screenplay.”
After his slam-bang action picture ‘Extraction,’ which has a sequel in the works, this will be Hemsworth’s next Netflix release. He’ll next be seen in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder,’ opposite Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson.
Netflix will premiere ‘Spiderhead’ on June 17th.
