Karl Urban and James Marsden star in this mystery thriller in which five married men use a shared penthouse loft in the city to conduct their illicit affairs.
Their fantasy is torn apart when Luke (Wentworth Miller) discovers a woman’s dead body handcuffed to a bed in the apartment leading the five friends, who possess the only keys, to suspect each other of her murder. As they are all interrogated by detectives Huggins (Kristin Lehman) and Cohagan (Robert Wisdom), the number of potential suspects only seems to increase as their complex affairs unravel.
The Loft is cool, slick and sexy – and will keep you on the edge of your seat until the climax, in which all the plot strands come together just as they should in any crime thriller. This isn’t Miss Marple though, and each of the central characters are floored and obnoxious.
It’s brooding, erotic, edgy and it gives a nod to Hitchock. What’s not to like?
Our verdict: 4/5.
