Review: The Cube (1997) presents characters that are stereotypes. The psychology is simplistic, but the movie builds an effective sense of claustrophobic menace that changes their behavior, which is the kind of thriller fans may enjoy. An original idea that shows the true human nature, its survival instinct, its character… It is remarkable what can you create with a limited cast and low budget! We live in a society that people love a good mystery and like to put themselves into the situation and think about how to win! To be fair its excellent sci-fi image gets a little destroyed with this terrible ending… It is tough a unique experience all of you viewers shouldn’t miss!
