Premiere date: Saturday 19 May 2012
Channel: Lifetime Movie Network
Editor comments: This may very well be what our world is like by 2016. If you’re a future-freak, we definitely suggest peeking at this just to see the cool technology they used.
Murder on the 13th Floor, actually starts out a little dull kind of unexpected considering how hyped the commercials for it actually were. However, one stand-out point in the beginning was the the simplicity of the futuristic technology they used to make this movie itself.
Who noticed the hand-keys? The wall-hologram phones? Isn’t that just amazing. We’ll keep this G-rated and simply refer to the red headed lady as ‘That Harpie’ generally because she already almost instantaneously within the first 20 minutes of the movie appears to have a major problem with the help in the house.
Cliff note: Again, who noticed the freaking cool 3-D simulation closet? Could you imagine if this is what our world really turned out to be? How freaking cool would that be!?
This movie clearly has a mindset of a jealous ‘wife’ or ‘girlfriend’ or whatever Arianna may have been, after all, only jealous women tend to spy on their men while their off doing something by themselves. It turns out, Jordan is actually the father of the nannies impending pregnancy.
We can say that the movie really started to get good, when the two leads Arianna & Jordan started to show the problems within their relationship. Jordan didn’t want to sell the amazing futuristic house that he and his pals built, but Arianna did — simply to greedily pocket the money from it.
The secrets each person holds in this movie, really makes for quite a ‘What’s gonna happen next moment’ Mia’s pregnancy vastly becomes an issue between Arianna and J0rdan because of the fact Jordan’s been lying to Arianna the entire time telling her that things are broken [literally, only don't recognize Arianna, but they do everybody else] simply because he’s been sneaking off with the nanny and lying about it.
Many many different points in this movie make for a great viewing experience, especially now at this point Arianna is planning murder and has enlisted the help of two thug-lookin-white-men to do the job starting with the overly-nerdy compu-tech guy that makes Eastorian possible.
Frankly, it’s a sad sad fookin world that this poor Arianna witch literally tries to kill each member of her team off so she can bank on what her hubby created. Since we’ve spoiled nearly all of the movie, we’ll just cut to the chase — the plot of the movie is when Arianna’s ‘henchmen’ sneak into the condo building after having it locked down to kill Mia but run into a roadblock after Mia’s friend and the little boy are still in the building.
Turning point of this film? The fact that the nanny and the child outsmarted Arianna’s henchmen without getting caught nor killed. Jordan divorces Arianna, and she pretty much looses it.
Movie Grade: B+
Kudo’s for the hot black guy.
