Cube 2: Hypercube (2002)
Canada / English
"Welcome to a new dimension in fear "Eight strangers find themselves waking up in a strange cube-shaped room with no recollection of how they came to be there...
Cube - again
Virtually a scene-by-scene remake of the original Cube, Hypercube
offers little that's new. We still have a bunch of people stuck inside
identical looking rooms trying to get out.
The actors feel slightly more professional this time, but the
characters are carbon copies of the previous ones - so what's the point
really? To make matters worse, they've got rid of what made Cube fun to
watch, i.e. the traps. Instead we get some increasingly dodgy rantings
about forth dimensions.
There are attempts at trying to explain more about the cube and its
purpose, but in the end no-one's any wiser. And to add injury to insult
- there are some really bad computer effects in this one, the kind that
just takes you right out of the film. The fascinating premise from the
first film still saves this from being a complete disaster, but if
you've seen the original there's really no need to see this one. [2/10]
