This is one freaky movie...
Cube is a movie that explores human nature and our instinctive urges for
survival vs our humanitarianism. Not a new concept, I know, however this
movie does it in style, with a plot so simple that it could only be the
of a conceptual genius. I don't intend to give too much away, as the power
of the film lies in it's mystery, but I will say that this movie could
almost be classified as disturbing, not due to its content, but rather the
thoughts that it instills in the audience. I found myself rather shaken as
left the cinema, feeling as though I had been exposed to an ugly, hidden
side of humanity and society. Don't get me wrong, this movie is definitely
worth seeing, I would even be so bold as to say that it must be seen! I
admit that there are few movies I have seen that have had such a profound
affect on me, and I don't think I am alone in my feelings.
Low Budget, Does not have to equal Low Quality
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
Low Budget Canadian sci-fi film worth viewing
This film has more in substance than most big budget hollywood "event"
movies rolled into one. The film follows the perils of a group of canadian
civilians imprisoned in a futuristic "RUBICK'S CUBE" style jail from which
there is seemingly no escape. They have no idea how they got there, or who
put them there, all they know is they have to escape.....fast. This film is
reminiscent of LORD OF THE FLIES, and how it showed mankind at it's worst
when things go bad. The film chronicles paranoia, suspicion and fear.
MAURICE DEAN WINT, gives a
brilliant performance. In fact, this man's acting ability, makes the film
worthwhile. The rest of the cast is fantastic as well.The neat thing about this movie is that the makers did it for relatively
cheap (only having to make one set, that they constantly reconfigured) yet,
the film works on many levels. This
is without a doubt, a thinking persons sci-fi film. THE CUBE shows a level
of ingenuity, and genius, missing from mainstream American big budget fare.

One of the most original sci-fi films of the last decade
If you were to think about what situation would terrify you the most, Cube
would be the ultimate challenge. In a way, it is a predecessor to TV's
"Survivor" in which the people each have a skill that can help them survive
and possibly get them out. It all comes down to human emotions and
confrontations that get in the way of progress. It's a talky film, but
that's the point-- figuring situations and dealing with different
personalities is inevitable to any group. The solving of problems becomes
very complex, but the viewer doesn't have to worry...let the characters
figure it out as we go along for the ride. While so many sci-fi films want
to wow you with effects, this film
does something more challenging--it makes you think. With its limited
budget and digital effects in use even before Titanic
glorified them, Cube still proves itself as one of the more original and
intelligent sci-fi films of the last decade, with a cult status already
going strong. It is truly a nail-biter.
