The Cave Reviews

Page 1 of 6
Joshua Starnes

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.

Why would anybody go in The Cave?

Showing no interest in staking new ground, Bruce Hunt is content to make his directing debut by aping scenes from better examples of the horror/thriller genre.

One plot twist provides a creative respite from the rehash barrage, but this Cave is better explored on DVD.

Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

This movie unfolds as though the scenes were assembled in random order. At least I think that's what it looks like; it's hard to say because it was so dark and murky looking.

| Original Score: C

If you like cold, dark, claustrophobic spaces, I highly recommend you go rediscover The Abyss. If that doesn't work, just go hole yourself up in a closet!

Most everyone in the audience, except those rendered unconscious by boredom, will see the 'big twist' plot turn coming well in advance, although the qualifiers 'big' and 'twist' seem overblown and inexact.

A bottomless pit of lame characters, horror-film cliches and improbable monsters.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Its job is to deliver a few jolty thrills and a couple of laughs and wrap things up before it starts to get too dumb.

Remember: CPR doesn't properly work on women unless their cleavage is visible.

Without 'scary' and 'surprising,' what is The Cave left with? Flying amphibian monsters. Which are great to have in a movie, I'll grant you, but not by themselves.

Cole Smithey

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.

'Something's not right here,' proclaims one of the characters exploring the creepy depths of The Cave. We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

The film's creatures are quite derivative, while one of the most intriguing revelations pertaining to them is never convincingly exploited or properly explained.

Director Bruce Hunt shouldn't be allowed to film a birthday party, let alone a major motion picture.
