Cube Zero Reviews

September 4, 2013
Prequel to the sci-fi thriller Cube, with events that unfold some time prior to those in first picture. Here, another group of prisoners navigate the treacherous confines of their futuristic trappings. Each step is potentially the last as the deadly last traps hidden in the sparse rooms find the numbers of the unwilling prisoners quickly thinning. Only when they can figure out the mysteries of their constantly changing prison will the surviving inmates have any hope for escape, and even then there is no guarantee of freedom -- much less survival. As the cube workers who monitor the prisoners progress bear witness to their increasingly grim bid for survival, a sudden sting of remorse finds one of the employees empathizing with the victims and plotting to assist them in their unlikely escape.

The Cube Trilogy Finishes With This Prequel, We Now See Some Of The World Outside Of The Cube. The Film Focuses On One Of The Junior Engineers, Who Escapes The Office And Into The Cube To Assist A Group Of People, Through The Traps. Cube Zero Moves Along At A Brisk Pace & Balances Gore & A Decent Narrative Very Well. The Script Is Good,The Plot Is Different And Slightly More Complex. The Cast Are Unknown But Give In Good Performances. The Great Thing About This Film Is That It Doesn't Show Much Outside The Cube, Which Keeps The Cubes Owners & Motives A Mystery.

One of Hypercube's screenwriters, Ernie Barbarash, took over directing for the prequel to the original Cube film, which is why I'm so surprised that it's actually good. Barbarash must have had his input universally shut down for the script to Hypercube, because Cube Zero is superior in every conceivable way. Hypercube failed at linking the suspense to the origins of the cube, but Cube Zero decided to start on the outside and work there way in, exploring the reasons behind and purpose of the Cube... One of the things that make the original Cube so fantastic was the lack of explanation of these things, but with the third installment of a franchise, new ground has to be explored, which Cube Zero successfully did. They even managed to link the ending of the film with the beginning of the original one in a way that both makes sense and benefits both films. The acting and dialogue was significantly better than the second film and on par with the first. Bottom line, this is a very good sci-fi B-movie, especially for a prequel. This might actually be the best prequel of it's kind in existence. I mean, it's not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, and the escape scene is horribly done, but it's great for being what it is. I'd recommend it to any sci-fi/horror fan... The ending flows so naturally, that it might even be better if you watch Cube Zero before the first one (which is a better movie overall)... I'd pass on Hypercube (unless you're in love with the other two).

It was ok once through. Many claim this was the best of the series. I still think I enjoyed the original the best.

This film destroys all of the fascination and mystery that comes with the first "Cube" film.

Enjoyable. Liked the 1st CUBE too.

The start was good, really good. I was sucked into the World and it builded up to some good moments. The Hero with the Glasses who is a Genius. But sadly after he reach the cube he didnt show any talent anymore and so does the movie. The scene when he told them he is there to help and the Women keeps yelling on him makes me almost scream at the movie ... Motivations where not clear and i missed the struggle from the first movie where people in the cube become more danger for eachother then the cube himself....

Horrible performances all over the place. It doesn't add much to the first movie's concept either.
June 14, 2013
Pretty cool, and it does a good job of setting up the rest of the story, including the first film. I wish they made more of these movies-as messed up as they are, there's really nothing quite like them, and they're all really entertaining.

Whilst a group of strangers try to escape the cube maze, their attempts are viewed by technicians on the outside.

Here we have the second sequel to the highly successful low budget horror / SF movie. Some of the basic plot is similar to the other entries, but there are a lot of elements that suggest this is a prequel to the original, but there are a lot of elements that show that technology is in fact superior, and it could be set after, and the viewer is not really shown whether this is a deliberate touch, or if the story is just badly handled. It is nice to see a return to the old fashioned style of traps and the industrial look of the cube works quite well. The small cast of characters are incredibly annoying and are just way too over the top for the movie's own good. The gore is limited, but what you do get to see, is as well handled as the other two entries in the franchise, and the traps are designed with quite a sadistic glee. But the real let-down in this movie is the plot, as in the original not knowing who was in control added a real sense of fear and paranoia, but the addition of the characters 'on the outside' just breaks any tension that may have been generated, especially taking into consideration how almost pantomime some of them are. Also, the ending of the movie would been quite good if you hadn't seen the original, and the reviewer can understand what was trying to be put across, but the almost carbon copying was actually quite annoying. All in all, this is a pretty average movie that feels like it is a SyFy original movie, and it would have been ok to watch as a standalone film, but compared to the other entries in the Cube franchise, it is a very poor cousin.

It answers too many questions removing much of the mystery leaving us with an occasionally inventive but underwhelming b-movie. Its attempt to stake its place as a prequel is also rather disappointing.

This movie I found had a slow but intense build up. It also had well written character development. But this was the first Cube movie I saw so maybe that's why I liked it so much.

Heaps heaps heaps better than Cube 2 but not as good as 1. It's supposed to be a prequel so along with the usual group inside the cube there's a few characters operating it.

True Science Fiction horror fan? Prove it what do you know about Cube and other non blockbuster cult classics.
January 18, 2013
Although not as good as the original, it's extremely better than Hypercube. It gets back to the original premise, while going beyond out to the guys "monitoring" the cube and their actions.
December 19, 2012
again, not nearly as good as the first. although much better than the second. this one seemed to stay a littler more true to the first film, which was appreciated (unlike Hypercube).

"Cube Zero" is just a lesser version of the first film but with an added side plot about onlookers monitoring the maze as people try to navigate through it. The film starts off strong, with a very bloody and disturbing trap (making you think this installment will focus on the traps, something that played a minor role in the previous two) but the movie doesn't go into the horrific death route so if you wanted to see the trap portion of the film, you'll be disappointed. If you liked the high concept science fiction that was in the first two (and more predominant in the second) it's not present here. If you were looking for a convoluted love plot, a cartoonish villain (complete with yes-men sidekicks and a bionic eye), a half-hearted anti-religion, anti-government message that feels more like an afterthought than an actual statement and a whole lot of plot holes and improbable technology, then this is the movie for you! "Cube Zero" has no idea what it wants to say and towards the very end introduces a new idea in the franchise that is offensively bad. If you're interested in the "Cube" franchise skip this one altogether or if you absolutely have to see all three save this one for last so you can more easily point out the flaws to your friends and make fun of the ridiculous elements.

Will have to watch this one. Not necassarily good or bad. Will see. Want to watch!
December 2, 2012
Even worse then Cube 2. Reminds me of "Saw" franchise, but this time an effort to expand the original fails totally. It's not a B-movie, it's a "Z-movie" in comparative to the original. Sad, very-very sad. We get the incredibly amazing teaser in "CUBE" the first and we never get the proper explanation or just as good an impressive sequel.
