Eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a final test with just one question. It seems simple yet confusing that soon, tensions begin to unravel.
The past, present and future of the CubeSat microsatellite technology is explored, with a particular emphasis upon the efforts of venturing beyond our own world by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies by Idaho National Laboratory.
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
Director Vincenzo Natali originally wanted to shoot the movie in chronological order, but had to disregard this idea because the doors on the cubes weren't working right. See more »

I don't wanna die, I'm just being realistic. Do you think they'd go to all the trouble to build this thing if we could just walk out?
Do you think they would have left us clues and let us beat it so far if there wasn't a way out?
You think we matter? We don't.
Put us out of your misery so we can get on with getting out of here.
Oh, you're not getting out of here.
Yes, we are!
No, you're not!
Yes, we are!
There is no way out of here!

It probably cost about half the budget of this movie, to make the opening sequence, which successfully gets your attention. Once it has your attention it simply refuses to let you go, it is compelling to say the least.
The entire cast were pretty much unknown when the film was made (and most still are), but they all gave fine performances throughout. Without the successful casting this film could have easily been a disaster, as it is almost entirely character driven. I'm glad to say that definitely is not the case.
Despite the low budget and practically unknown cast, the film manages to be clever, intriguing, thought-provoking and highly enjoyable. sadly, this film is probably a one off, i can't think of another low budget film that has half the impact of this one.
8/10 and worth every point
