Trivia

While the characters are recalling the last things they remember before being in the Cube, Geraint Wyn Davies' character, Simon, states he was in New Haven. When the screen divides into different views, the shot on the right/upper right of the screen is an alternate take from another Lions Gate film Davies had a role in, American Psycho II: All American Girl (2002). The similar scene in "American Psycho II" can be seen shortly after 1 hour 6 minutes into that film. See more »

Obviously Missed the Point of Cube
29 May 2004 | by drinkingturtleSee all my reviews

Well, I guess it's an OK movie so long as you pretend the first Cube doesn't exist. Interesting characters, interesting plot, and lots of panic and violence... gotta love that.

But... the question must be asked: How can you have a sequel to Cube? Cube was a deeply philosophical movie that had nothing to do with conspiracies or governments or Izod or anything nonsense like that. It wasn't some government project - it just was. It was a means of putting the various kinds of "humanity" to the test.

Hypercube obviously missed that. It missed the deeper meaning of Cube because whoever wrote it was too superficial to see past the glossy exterior to its true meaning. In making Hypercube, they insult Cube, as well as all its fans who understood it for what it really was.

Cube was a philosophical statement. Hypercube is a pointless sci-fi thriller. As a sci-fi thriller, it's not bad - but when you watch it, disassociate it with its predecessor, or else you'll absolutely hate it.
