About the Movie
A student, an ex-con, an engineer, a social worker, a cop and a mentally handicapped person are caught like rats in a trap in a maze of interlocking cubes with no apparent way out. They're clueless as to how they got there or why they were chosen. Food or water is nowhere to be found, and upon further investigation, the six discover some of the rooms are booby-trapped with destructive devices.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Surprisingly gripping.
Fresh: Cube was named best Canadian debut feature at Toronto last year, and there's no questioning Natali, clearly a visionary, is an important new talent.
Rotten: If writer-director Vincenzo Natali, storyboard artist for Keanu Reeve's Johnny Mnemonic, were as comfortable with dialogue and dramatizing characters as he is with images, this first feature of his might have worked better.
Fresh: With its enigmatic and simple premise, this works best as a series of nerve-stretching suspense sequences as the characters try to get past the killing traps.
I was first introduced to the Cube universe oddly enough through an Unreal Tournament 2004 custom map. I was intrigued. I have been looking for this movie on iTunes for a while and I must say I am impressed by this movie. It is not only a sci-fi/horror work of brilliance, but an fascinating look into human behavior. I really reccommend this movie to anyone looking for a thoughful, inspired, and really open ended movie well worth your time!
A different kind of Sci-Fi
I'm a fan of science fiction. This movie is different in a good way. I saw this movie when it aired on the Sci-Fi Channel and loved it. It is low tempo and not your typical Hollywood canned movie that people have come to expect. This is was the first movie in the trilogy until they came out with a prequel. Give it a rent or buy if you are into science fiction. The feel is a like a "made for TV movie" but the story is very interesting and engaging. Fans of the game "Portal" will love this one.
I have to be honest and say I did not want to see Cube the first time I saw it, I thought it looked "dumb". but i watched it on movie night and I was blown away.. the psychology behind this movie and just the way it was filmed was superb. It was filmed in one room, on one small set and they simply change the color of it to seem like someplace new and it WORKS! one of my favorite cult classic films of all time. I highly reccomend this movie..(hypercube...not so much)
