High-Flying Top Gun 2 Director Crashes Down With Netflix’s Spiderhead in Initial Reviews

Based on a short story by George Saunders, Spiderhead is the latest offering on Netflix. The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski whose recent film, Top Gun 2, proved to be a monumental success. It has a fascinating premise. A pharmaceutical company performs experiments on inmates with chemicals that can alter a person’s behavior. It has Chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller in lead roles, however, despite all this, it has received a lot of negative reviews from critics.

Despite having an apex director and an awesome star cast, the film failed to impress many reviewers. The film had a lot of promise, however, it seems that it has underperformed. It certainly has some good aspects to it, though. The experimental drugs given to inmates are quite ingenious. Take, for instance, Darkenfloxx, which makes one feel very bad, or Verbaluce, which makes a person speak eloquently.
