Only seemed a bit low budget at times, like with a few lines being acted. The low-mid budget makes me admire it more. Most of it was shot with hand-held cameras, and it looks good.
This movie was entertaining, interesting and not too long. A simple idea that really worked. The horror was adequate. The mystery worked for as long as it needed. Tension at the right times...Some say the characters are cliché. I don't know what charcaters people expected in a movie like this. I think the characters serve their purpose very well. Don't forget they were selected for being such characters, which kind of helps them being the stereotypes they are.I'd have like more of a better conclusion at the end.
This is a classic low-budget sci-fi film that delivers good the chills and agony. Really good story and satisfying throughout the movie
I enjoyed this film. I really did. I think what did this film well was that it has such a small cast and has a very focused story. This film was executed so well give its budget, and I was glad to find out that there are sequels. I did not feel like the limited setting was a hinderance. Everything was done just right.
We initially see a man named Alderson exploring a new room of the cube. He is quickly killed by a wire mesh and is subsequently cut into many pieces. We'll later find out in the film that each prisoner is there to serve a purpose and each has some sort of talent, or intended role. I wonder what Alderson's role/purpose was?
The character development in this film is awesome. Throughout the film, we see characters evolve and take on changes as a result of the stress induced by their situation. Each character discovers themselves, or in Quentins case, devolves into a maniac.
Time for a theory. Kazan was the only occupant to escape. I start to wonder if this might have been intentional. Kazan is unable to communicate effectively, because of his disability. Was it designed so that only he would survive so that information about the Cube remained elusive? Furthermore, the room Kazan exits to is not the outside world. I say this because the building would have to be visible for this to be true, and would raise some suspicion. There could, of course, be a front.
This film left me wanting more, and I am eager to watch the sequel and the prequel. I hear this film is being remade, and I would be very interested in seeing how they do it.
Image and sound 3.75 / 5. She's as different, and anguished as ever.
The acting is so terrible that you wanna puke
Don't watch the second and third sequels. they suck. this one is the best
It's so disappointing to have such an original concept be developed into a script with every single cliche in the book. The movie has some very good suspenseful moments, but it's weak script and poor acting from the antagonist destroy the great movie this could have been.
When leaving the cinema after watch CUBE I was disappointed because of the weak ending. The rest of the movie would have been good but gory & quite brutal.
Urgh that end was frustrating...
I can't believe it took me so long to stumble upon the Cube movies. My sister and I watched all three recently for the first time. We loved them. This one, the first, was definitely the best.
La situación de la que parte es tan intrigante y alucinante que desde que comienza hasta que termina lo único que hace es arrastrarte junto a los personajes hacia un final impredecible. Pasando por momentos tétricos, dramáticos y muy, pero muy intensos.
Ahora, para mi los limites de esta idea quedaron un poco lejos de donde los pusieron aquí, se pudo haber ido más allá y mejorar el final, porque fue justo, pero me hicieron anhelarlo tanto que cuando llegó simplemente quede insatisfecho. Viéndolo en general todo se desarrolló del carajo, sin embargo otras cosas se pudieron haber mejorado, como el comportamiento y la motivación de los personajes para que así la experiencia fuera más emocional.
¿Recuerdan Saw? Bueno, creo que la idea salió de aquí. [4/5]
I liked the plot,but the ending was disappointing.
I really like the concept of this movie, one of the most interesting I've ever seen.
Man, I love this movie so much. I wish the sequels lived up to the same standards.
Before "Saw", there was "Cube", a low budget Sci-Fi/Thriller with a very cool concept but limited character development and a few major plot holes. But despite this, "Cube" still is a very watchable film, but not one to take seriously.
