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

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

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.

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.

Ten minutes into this film and I wanted out too.

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.

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.

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.

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