director Joseph Kosinski is back with Netflix's Spiderhead, his second movie of the summer, following the blockbuster success of Top Gun: Maverick. The thriller is substantially shorter and more constrained than Kosinski's blockbuster legacy sequel and was shot in late 2020 during the COVID-19 epidemic. Even still, Spiderhead has enough going for it to stand out from the flood of Netflix original movies thanks to a cast that features well-known actors like chris Hemsworth and Miles Teller. And this movie generally succeeds. Spiderhead creates a captivating, if flimsy, sci-fi thriller by fusing intriguing notions with good performances from the ensemble.

In Spiderhead, Teller plays Jeff, a prisoner serving his sentence in the unique Spiderhead facility where prison director Steve Abneti (Hemsworth) studies pharmaceuticals intended to change people's behaviour. Jeff has his doubts about what is really going on, but the prisoners participate in the experiments under the belief that their work will eventually assist society. Jeff tries to find a method to get away from Steve and Spiderhead after losing faith in the programme.

The script for Deadpool, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, differs from the meta comedy for which they are well known in terms of style and tone. The more cerebral, thought-provoking content Spiderhead produces examines concepts like free will and humanity's ambition to rule over all facets of existence. For a title like this, it is undoubtedly beaten ground, but Spiderhead manages to make it work for the most part in part because it is prepared to go into the past traumas of the characters (which is a significant part of Jeff's story). The various tales relate to Spiderhead's themes and give the screenplay more substance.

The performances, particularly those of Hemsworth and Teller, elevate Spiderhead. In order to play a sleazy billionaire, the former sheds his heroic MCU persona, displaying a side of his range that is rarely highlighted. Hemsworth is obviously enjoying himself in the job and using his on-screen persona to make Steve look endearing but frightening. Despite being a major enemy in Spiderhead, he has a complex personality because to information provided about Steve's past. Teller is fantastic as Jeff, a man who is obviously burdened by his background and has grown weary of Spiderhead.
