Right before he asks Dodd about the "third exit", Winn shows him how to win the chess game that he is studying. First of all, the position on the board is totally different than the one printed on the paper Dodd gives him. What's more, any chess player would agree that his 'solution' is ridiculous: black's last move (rook to e8) simply allows white to deliver a rather obvious mate in g7 when there were several ways to avoid it. It's impossible that an avid chess player like Dodd would not notice such a bold mistake, let alone qualify white's play as incredibly brilliant. See more »
A perfectly adequate prequel to the first film. This time we see the men who operate the cube, but it doesn't take long to realise that they are still within the system.
This film owes a lot to the identity loss themes seen in Dark City and even the matrix, as the film resolves to show existence as a hierarchical and circular metaphor of continuous control.
This is low budget, but has a dated feeling that the original Cube film did not. Writers and set designers face a lot of pressure to create fresh ideas, and new ideas are sadly lacking here. The horror element is delivered well, but the sci-fi elements are rather tacked on.
