Hypercube

Hypercube

Plot Outline: Eight strangers find themselves waking up in a strange cube-shaped room with no recollection of how they came to be there. Soon discovering that they’re in a strange fourth dimension where our laws of physics don’t apply, they have to unravel the secrets of the “hypercube” in order to survive…

Personal Comments

I’ve seen the first Cube quite some time ago (before 2000 as I recall). I was eager to see this one but I really never had the chance to take a look at it. Finally, I rented last week and the movie was unpleasantly worst than the first. Even though there were nice ideas like the shift of time frames and differences on the direction of the gravity field, it was not better than the first.. and it is definitely not an horror film. The deaths are badly thought and there’s no much more to it than the bunch of people walking around trying to find their way out of there and in the end, you don’t get the answer to some of the questions you made during the movie. I know there’s another cube: Cube Zero, but I’m not quite sure if I want to check it out just right now…

  1. The movie is so freaking simply, but at the same time so fucking good.

    I bought the Box with the 3 movies a few days ago, and beside the terrible quality of the actors and same leaks (specially in Cube Zero), the film is a “must have”!.

    Its strange, but i have a tendency to love “naif” movies :p

  2. Hypercube is just the same story as the original Cube, but with all the bits that Vincenzo Natali refused to include in it (like seeing outside the cube, more details about the character’s lives, …). In the end, I can see why: Cube is a great movie, Hypercube isn’t, not even close.

    Judging from the comments over at IMDB, Cube Zero is also mostly the same story as the other two, but manages to be even worse than the second one.

    This kind of movies aren’t meant to have sequels, it just ruins the original experience…
