Editorial Reviews

Like Saw for corporate go-getters, in EXAM eight young people vying for a sought-after job are locked together in a room and given one hour to finish their exam. But the exam is a blank piece of paper and the eight candidates soon realize their only competition isn t a q& a but each other. Hot rising talent Stuart Hazeldine is Hollywood s in-demand rewrite artist for top sci-fi and thriller fare and now he s established himself as a behind the camera threat with this brilliant genre spin highlighted by actor Luke (28 Days Later) Mably s swaggeringly solipsistic bad-boy charisma as the job applicant most likely to succeed by stabbing you in the back. Like Saw for smarties or the B-movie gem Cube, EXAM is one test you can look forward to bring your number 2 pencil and hope you don t get cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars And You Thought The Current Job Market Was Competitive? October 14, 2010
Format:DVD
An intricate puzzler, "Exam" is a topical and prescient locked room mystery that makes good use of standard thriller conventions and modernizes them in unique and timely ways. With eight strangers (and one security guard) enclosed in a classroom, "Exam" initiates a competition and lets the psychological warfare begin. Reliant on a smart script and good performances, this film with its claustrophobic setting and defined time frame allows for a slow build tension that eventually explodes as the clock ticks down. The hook to "Exam" is that these eight individuals are in the last stages of a crucial job interview process and an enigmatic final test is the last hurdle. With desperation and deceit, the prospective employees find themselves combatants in the ultimate mind game!

"Exam" ratchets up the stakes by setting the film in the near future where a pandemic is ripping through the world's populace. Winning the job is a chance at survival itself as one of the company perks is a treatment protocol--a health insurance package of undeniable importance. But to gain life, is it worth trading your humanity? That's the conundrum each of the interviewees must face. From various backgrounds, these applicants form a good cross section of society and this microcosm starts to unravel almost immediately. Each is given a blank sheet of paper and asked to answer one question--but the question is never defined. After they initially work together, they start to become more and more frantic and more and more ruthless at eliminating the competition. There will be only one victor.

The story is taut and tidy. The screenplay is clever without being overly precious. And the cast is game. Ranging from cool bravado to outright hysteria, each actor brings a unique characteristic to their role.

Format:DVD
1 Disc DVD Widescreen, being released November 16, 2010

"Exam" was written, produced, and directed by Stuart Hazeldine who is known for some sci-fi film writing and not much else. I had low expectations going in on this one and was VERY pleasantly surprised. Hazeldine in this closed room scenario managed to pull out the tension that "Devil" failed to achieve earlier this year in an elevator.

The premise is that eight candidates are vying for a very prestigious job with a company. They are shown into a room with eight desks, each of which has a white slip of paper with "Candidate" and a number after it. A proctor of the "exam" informs them that there is one question before them and one answer and lays out ground rules of not attempting to speak to the proctor or the guard in the room and that if any of them "spoils" their paper, they are disqualified and escorted out.

What follows is an exercise in logic and group dynamics as each of them attempts to pull information out of the others without giving much in return. A sassy bad boy-type man who makes waves played by Luke Mably dubs himself the nickname "White" and then hands out nicknames to the others based on their race or hair color to make things simpler. While they try to work together to at least find the question, it soon becomes every man or woman for themselves.

I found this film suspenseful and intriguing with very well developed characters, dialogue, and strategy. The entire film takes place in one room that they manage to use in interesting ways once the characters in the room attempt to change the space to induce results.

2.0 out of 5 stars The unexamined life is not worth living September 19, 2012
Format:DVD
This picture reminded me of a time when newly graduated from high school I tried to put myself through college by taking the SAT exams for younger students. If they wanted to get into some place great I'd try to get brilliant scores, if they wanted to get into community college I'd answer badly. It would be rather fun except it was a little bit nerve wracking, and I stopped my activities when one girl in the classroom recognized me under my true identity and nearly jobbed me as a bad lot. Whew, I can still feel the relief. I don't think you could do this today, I expect every single person, even the young, has some sort of picture ID, or maybe they use DNA evidence, but back then you basically just out your social security card on the desk and the proctors might give it a look but usually they just whisked by like runway models, looking neither sideways nor down.

In EXAM the young people are not trying to get into top schools but rather they're sitting for an exam in which the top applicant will win a job with a faceless corporation. It didn't seem likely to us, but then they explained that the world had been invaded with a killer disease and that this company a) gave top people great medical insurance and b) actually were this close to a cure. In th4 closed set of the exam room, it all seems far away, and thus when the eight people are all revealed to have enough motive to do just about anything to stay in the game, it makes sense, well, up to a certain point. I'm afraid the low budget of the production limits its plausibility.
