An interesting and enjoyable low budget film
3 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

The basic plot of this film is that three people wake up trapped inside a metal room, with no means of escape and no idea how they got there. All that's in the room is a table and chairs, jug of water and three cups and lastly a strange metal box.

When I first read about this film, I thought it sound like the 1997 low budget film "Cube" However I was glad when I started watching it that it took a different route.

The majority of the movie is played out in one room, this being said it needed 3 strong performances from the actors. Elly Jaresko was equal to the task, and easily the most accomplished actor of the three.

The runtime is given as 88 minutes, but if you take out the credits it's actually 70 minutes. Given how short the film was it felt to me more like I was watching an episode of "The Twilight Zone" or "The Outer Limits".

This is not too bad a thing as I found the film enjoyable. The ending has a twist in the tale, no actually two. The first one pays off, but the second one left me wondering what the point was.

So all in all this film is not the best and is certainly not the worst. If you want something slightly different than your Hollywood blockbusters then check it out
