Critics Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
With its confined setting and its existential predicament, the picture owes an ostensible debt to the likes of Pinter and Kafka and Pirandello -- you know, Six Characters in Search of an Author, or, failing that, just getting the hell out of this...

San Francisco Chronicle
Cube falls into the dreaded trap of allegory -- aaaaaargh! -- and the clunky dialogue makes a midnight bull session seem brilliant by comparison.

Unrealistic and relatively predictable, but it was original when it came out.

Excellent!
this is what I thought after watching it, what a great plot and a genius idea. this film isn't long, not over-sophisticating, all goes round the simple idea of the guys trapped in a booby-trapped cube. a bit of this and a pinch of that, and we have...
