Description: Six complete strangers of widely varying personality characteristics are involuntarily placed in an endless kafkaesque maze containing deadly traps.

Review: A group of people is locked in a cube. This cube is connected to more cubes. Every cube has six doors. Some of them are safe, some have dangours traps. The people have no idea how or why they are there. All of the people have a different background and seem to be there with a purpose. Together they are trying to find a way out.
The concept of “Cube” is pretty original. As a viewer you have lots of questions about the cubes or the reason those people are in there. You never get those answers though. “Cube” is a very vague film. Sadly the original concept is ruined by a standard story, bad cliches and really terrible acting. These elements and the fact that all the images are very dark, makes it that you don’t care about the characters and everything that happens to them.
I hated “Cube”. It has two sequels, but I will probably skip those.

Rating: 0,5/ 5
