For something spawned in a torture chamber, it seems to think pretty highly of itself.

Audience Reviews for Die

The synopsis makes this sound more interesting than it is. Turns out it's basically just a ripoff of several other horror movies, namely the Saw series, but with less blood and much less entertainment value. I'm actually not sure why I sat through the whole thing... background noise, I guess. It's not good for much more than that.

Interesting (but flawed) movie which attempts to be more philosophical than it is. Taking a lot of cues from Saw (but without the grotesque torture-porn qualities), Die presents a perspective of fate where the victims either live or die by rolling a numbered cube. This is a pun-tastic play on words, then, and I'm sure the idea of death by dice has been done before. But what both elevates--and limits--Die is the questionable philosophy presented. Somehow the people who survive become disciple-like converts to the philosophy. Which ends up feeling like a deus ex machina since there is no reasonable explanation presented as to WHY this weird twist on the Stockholm Syndrome. Without being believable, the whole movie suffers--while at the same time offering up it's best sense of horror as the scope of those who are disciples is presented.

½

Basically a rip-off of the Saw films, Die is a little more original than you think if you believe that its title refers to death--it's actually the singular form of dice! A modestly entertaining, but completely derivative film, Die finally manages to develop in somewhat interesting ways but it doesn't quite make up for the tedium of the scenes leading up to the finale.
