Film Review Cube Zero

Cube Zero is the third Cube film and after the terrible film that Hypercube is, I wasn't expecting much, because apart from being bad, Hypercube didn't lend itself well to the First Cube Film, which is a strong cult classic.

If you haven't seen the original Cube film then you are missing out on one of the most original SciFi cult films ever made, and love it or hate it, it still gets people talking.

Cube Zero really brings the series home, but I do stress that you must have seen the original film before you see Cube Zero, otherwise you will spoil the original for yourself. Not that the two films are connected in events or characters, but in the revealed depths that the story takes you through with both films would be spoiled.

Cube Zero is about an operator that monitors the people inside The Cube, and then enters it to try and save a woman that he has been watching.

The visuals are strong, the traps are amazing and the acting is great. I loved this film so much I watched it again with the directors commentary immediately after, but then I do have a weakness for SciFi. This film will appeal to anybody that analyses films for their philosophical or moral implications. It is not an action film, it is not a drama or a romance, it isn't even a thriller which it could so easily have been. No, it is a film that leads from the concepts and ideas in original Cube film.
