Goofs

The Sergeant (Chris Obi) has a mixture of ribbons from the Air Force Basic Training Ribbon (on top row for God's sake) to the Bronze Star (on the position of the least ranking -- it is the 20th military ranking of all military awards and is usually found on the top (highest ranking) row. There are other service and auxiliary ribbons that could be from JrROTC to Police/Fire to Foreign. All it takes for wardrobe to set these ribbons correctly is to look up the proper military service "Order of Preference." See more »

Very Good! Those who left low ratings shouldn't have done so.
23 June 2016 | by peetamellarkmailSee all my reviews

This movie is full of action and suspense. Haves some similarities of the Cube series, but while being very different. If you like Cube, then you'll probably like this. I'm not going to post anything about the movie containing spoilers. You'll have to watch it yourself! That being said, don't join a contest without looking into it! Also, don't be stupid and try your best! This movie contains footage of gamer noobs doing stupid things like wasting grenades, wasting ammo, and making unnecessary noises, and being bad team members is general. Viewer discretion is advised! I rate this movie PG for no pornographic scenes, but usage of colorful language.
