"The Loft" is a remake of a Belgian film, and focuses on five married men who go in on a ritzy high rise loft for the purposes of pursuing their affairs and sexual escapades. When a girl winds up dead in a pool of blood in the loft, the five men panic as they attempt to unravel who she is and where she came from. Taking some cues from Hitchcock (and not exactly with a fraction of Hitch's poise), "The Loft" is an overall entertaining film, but the script at times is the equivalent of a cheap Rubik's cube? it looks fine, it's a fun puzzle, I guess, but it's really just not that impressive overall. The film shifts between past and present, unraveling the narrative through flashbacks which are sandwiched between the current dilemma of the four men arguing in the loft over the corpse of the dead blonde. The pacing is a bit choppy, and the transitions rather abrupt. James Marsden and Wentworth Miller are among the film's greatest star power here, but the cast overall is really underwhelming, and the performances are at times borderline campy as the men play up their roles as buffoonish plutocratic mattress hounds. The finale cements my feelings of the film as an underwhelming thriller that seems more suited for television than the silver screen, but I still can't say it was totally not worth the time. In spite of the hammy performances, the disjointed narrative, and the overall sensibility of utter lifelessness that the film has, it is still by and large an entertaining flick. Nearly impossible to take seriously, but for entertainment's sake, it's passable. 5/10.

Like a cheap Rubik's cubeReviewed byE_MulwrayVote: 5/10
I saw "The Loft", starring Karl Urban-Bones in the new Star Trek movies, Xena:Warrior Princess_tv; James Marsden-Cyclops in the X-Men movies, The Notebook; Wentworth Miller-Resident Evil:Afterlife, Prison Break_tv; Eric Stonestreet-Modern Family_tv, Identity Thief and Rachael Taylor-666 Park Avenue_tv, Transformers. This is a pretty good thriller that is a remake of a 2008 Belgian movie, which was then remade in 2010 by the Dutch. Karl plays an architect that makes his best buddies an offer they find hard to resist. He gives each of them a special key to a penthouse loft-aka an apartment-that they may use anytime they feel the need for an extramarital affair or if they just want some quiet time away from their wife or boss. James is a psychiatrist, Wentworth is a shy and quiet one and Eric is a womanizing flirt. All are also married, but with different degrees of happiness. James and Wentworth resist, at first, but soon find a reason to use the loft. One day, Wentworth drops by and finds a dead body in the loft, so he calls everyone and they all put their heads together to figure out exactly what happened. The keys are electronic and need a master key to make a duplicate, which is under lock in Karl's safe-someone had to have gotten in with a key to commit the crime. Did anyone loose their key? Or lend it to someone? Did one or more of the wives discover what the boys are doing at the loft and seek some kind of revenge? Rachael plays a woman that James falls in love with, after meeting her at a party, and no, she is not the victim. It has a lot of good twists and turns in it and I really enjoyed it. It's rated "R" for violence, language, sexual content-including nudity- and drug use and has a running time of 1 hour & 48 minutes. I would buy this on Blu-Ray.
I was surprised how good this film was. I usually figure out who done its before the reveal but I didn't with this one. It can be a bit confusing jumping around from past and present but that adds to the mystery. Its a smart movie and we don't get those that often. Performances are good- most actors seemed to be a bit out of their typical roles. Wentworth Miller was very different from Prison Break and its nice to see Karl Urban break away from SciFi/Fantasy franchises. Eric Stonestreet was very different from his TV role and James Mardsen showed the conflict of someone going against their norm. Also, it was nice to have a movie this length- not so long its hard to stand up when the film is done. Its a shame the studio didn't really back it and do any advertising. I never saw a TV spot- just a preview. They also kept pushing back the release date. Its a shame this one will just probably fade into DVD obscurity because its good and entertaining.
