Way more fun than an escape room
10 January 2019 | by josephlee936See all my reviews

I love how the escape room veteran Danny reminds the audience how lame escape rooms are to contrast it with the real life escape room with actual consequences we get in this movie. It makes the entire movie more fun as you watch the characters solve the puzzles as they try to stay alive. I also liked the fact that the six members of this party were not all kids, something that you certainly could have had in a PG13 suspense film. I thought all six of the characters were good, but I really enjoyed Deborah Ann Woll (Daredevil), who I thought added some gravitas to, again, a PG13 suspense film. It's a fun movie.
