Much, much better than I expected! (10/10)
8 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Summary: Cube Zero is all about going back to basics. Gore is back together with much darker atmosphere and (at least apparently) gone is all ambiguous silliness about alternative universes from Cube 2. (I did appreciate the idea but did someone really think it worked?)

Someone complained that this does nothing but recycle ideas of Cube 1 & 2. This couldn't be further from truth: I think the movie goes into a very interesting direction. The fact that the beginning is identical to Cube 1 is just a homage: I guess it tries to say that you should forget about Cube 2 at this point -- this is no PG ride. It "ignores" Cube 2 completely ("why" should be obvious after seeing the ending) and goes back to what worked in the original.

It would've been easy for this movie to be a complete disaster. The trailer certainly did not look as good as the movie ended up being. Sure, some performances aren't that great (but then again, look at Cube 1!) and some cgi seems to be recycled from Cube 1 (but then again, look at the budget!).

However, I think "Cube Zero" expands the "Cubeverse" in an interesting way and still keeps a lot of mysteries. ("Who *are* these people?") The ending itself is so great that if you liked Cube 1 at all, you should watch this movie.

Cube 2 certainly didn't give the viewer anything new except a silly ending that could mean anything. This one, on the other hand, is consistent with the premise of Cube 1 and just lays out some new rules.

A great ride with a very nice payoff! [10/10]
