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.

June 21, 2009
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.

Bland, boring, conventional, cliché, and dumb...
September 11, 2006
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.

O roteiro é ridículo, mas o filme consegue criar algumas seqüências tensas. Ainda assim, empalidece frente ao ótimo (e similar) The Descent.

...a dull, thoroughly unpleasant horror flick...

...despite its shortcomings, The Cave does deliver on some of its promises.

The monsters show up and it becomes another run-of-the-mill creature feature, only one that's more dimly lit than usual because of the setting.

Some things, like this movie, are best left undiscovered.

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!

I wouldn't even encourage movie-goers who adore this type of film to give it a try because you'd be much better off renting anything from the action section of your favorite video store.

Rare is the movie in which it's so blatant that the quest for a lower rating has influenced the aesthetic style so much.
September 8, 2005
The whole thing is pretty dumb, and not tongue-in-cheek enough to make the dumbness fun.
September 6, 2005
Not a classic by any means, but possibly one you might want to add to your Netflix queue for a rainy day.

Even among the dogs of summer, The Cave scrapes bottom.

Look up pointless in the dictionary and you'll find a movie poster for The Cave.

The pretty cast gets knocked off in order of attractiveness (the least cute bite it earlier on) and the monsters and action are shot in such a way as to maximize the overall incoherence.

A generic duffer that's as exciting as a hole in the ground.

It's dumb folks, yeah it's an "Alien" rip-off, but that's not a terrible thing, it's the complete lack logic and decent dialogue that's the problem.
