Storyline

Six different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math whiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a disabled man. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they've been imprisoned. Written by <dadroog@hotmail.com>

Senseless must see
14 May 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This movie just doesn't make much sense and leaves the viewer with many questions. It has almost no special effects, the actors are unknown and the story can be told in two sentences. Yet, the atmosphere is tight and exciting. It is so tight, that I rate this movie as a must see!
