On the run in the year of 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken.
Jorge Lendeborg Jr.,
Six strangers are given mysterious black boxes with tickets to an immersive escape room for a chance to win tons of money. Being locked in several rooms with extreme conditions, they discover the secrets behind the escape room and must fight to survive and to find a way out.
As far as January releases go, it could be a lot worse than this. If you can accept the kind of film this is and it's cliche characters spouting often clunky dialogue, it's pretty enjoyable; despite that it's about ten to fifteen minutes too long. In fact, once everyone assembles in the first escape room and the plot gets going and the danger kicks in, it can be quite tense. The first three rooms are fun but the novelty starts to wear off along with patience for the story and some of it's characters as the movie drags on. Overall though, there's enjoyment to be had here among all the familiar cheese and predictability.
