Antagony & Ecstasy

[Director Vincenzo] Natali's handling of mood and pace leave Cube one of the tightest horror-thrillers of the late '90s.

...an inventive (if inconsistent) bit of sci-fi fun.

Electric Sheep

The lack of information, the strange Jack Kirbyesque details on the walls and the absence of any outside world makes the environment of the film timeless and suitably, subtly existential.

Cinema em Cena

Nem mesmo os diálogos pedestres e as atuações medianas conseguem destruir o interesse gerado por um conceito interessante, ainda que mal desenvolvido.

Combustible Celluloid

A bizarre, frightening, and clever new low-budget movie with a "Twilight Zone"-ish premise.

One of the smartest, most nail-biting thrillers in EON's

Cube is a film boxed in by its own intriguing central premise.

Flipside Movie Emporium

The film's clever gimmick holds up well, despite a cold, clinical tone.

For the six trapped characters in this film their own warps are their worst enemies.

Cube was named best Canadian debut feature at Toronto last year, and there's no questioning Natali, clearly a visionary, is an important new talent.

Adding to the narrative tedium are the often laughably amateurish turns by the justly unknown cast.

If writer-director Vincenzo Natali, storyboard artist for Keanu Reeve's Johnny Mnemonic, were as comfortable with dialogue and dramatizing characters as he is with images, this first feature of his might have worked better.

For all of the film's technical proficiency, it's a stilted and unsatisfying piece of work.

Austin Chronicle

Startling at times, but just as equally distant at others, Cube seems to have it all backwards: It's a film in search of a one-act play.

Ten minutes into this film and I wanted out too.

Compuserve

The claustrophobic film is inhabited by six uninteresting individuals who'd have you climbing the walls in 90 minutes, much less an Sartrian eternity, and in fact the movie provides its own evidence of this.

Cinematter

Vincenzo Natali directs this science fiction thriller with an intriguing premise. Unfortunately, there's little to Cube besides that premise and some creative filmmaking techniques.

Apollo Guide

Heartless. That's the one word that best describes Cube, a brutal and nasty attempt to explore human motivations and emotions at their most basic level.

Cube is one of those rare films that make you itch uncomfortably on the inside.

Empire Magazine

With its enigmatic and simple premise, this works best as a series of nerve-stretching suspense sequences as the characters try to get past the killing traps.
