Not a classic by any means, but possibly one you might want to add to your Netflix queue for a rainy day.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Characters leap, dive, climb, swim, lift, and run from one scene to the next. The Cave is the celluloid personification of 'Outside Magazine.'
| Original Score: 3/5
Spare and single-minded, The Cave is an insistently entertaining piece of pulp.
Contained enough unusual scenery and frightening sequences to keep my mind off its farfetched plot most of the time.
So very, very stupid... and so very, very fun.
Romps along on its endearingly dumb, shameless wavelength.
| Original Score: 3/4
if you enjoy watching flying, bloodthirsty monsters chase people around dark places, you'll get a kick from the film
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Constrained and unreadable, the space turns invaders into opportunistic killers (or maybe just rearrangers, a next step in body snatching).
Just barely worth exploring. (On DVD, that is.)
Bruce Hunt's directing debut displays a cold-blooded efficiency and refreshing lack of Michael Bay-ish hyperactivity in what is otherwise a solid if unspectacular action-horror flick.
The best part is that it takes place in a couple of locales -- spelunking in a cave and diving underwater -- that we don't normally go, unless it's a nature documentary.
If you gotta rip something off, might as well be a classic.
The Cave is a decently crafted but unoriginal and uninspiring creature feature with a few moments of true entertainment that the rest of the film never matches up to.
| Original Score: 5/10
Replete with winged undersea cave monsters, unlikely mountain climbing heroics and a mutating microbe that turns its victims into creatures-in-waiting "The Cave" is a paint-by-numbers thriller lacking in pigment.
| Original Score: C-
Bland, boring, conventional, cliché, and dumb...
| Original Score: 2/4
About what you'd expect from a low budget, B-movie destined to reside among the direct-to-video releases at Blockbuster and the Saturday night features on the Sci-Fi Channel.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
| Original Score: 2/5
O roteiro é ridículo, mas o filme consegue criar algumas seqüências tensas. Ainda assim, empalidece frente ao ótimo (e similar) The Descent.
| Original Score: 3/5
...a dull, thoroughly unpleasant horror flick...
| Original Score: .5/4
