A welcome addition to the small subgenre of horror films where people don't act stupidly under extreme duress.

A tame version of Saw aimed at a younger crowd. It's capable of providing thrills while lacking an original concept. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a fairly intriguing premise that is, at the outset, employed to better-than-expected effect by filmmaker Adam Robitel...

"THAT IS NOT, IN FACT, A TWIST! THAT IS IN POINT OF FACT LITERALLY THE OPPOSITE OF A PLOT TWIST - IT'S AN UN-TWIST! A PLOT-STRAIGHTENING!"

It's an incredibly watchable and mostly satisfying experience, although it's one that you'll probably forget about four or five hours after you leave the theater.

Its complete and utter lack of ever taking itself or its characters seriously is the film's major saving grace. While this all makes it quite fun, it still doesn't make it any good.

I felt that this film from Adam Robitel was a lot better than his other films like Insidious: The Last Key.

It's so much fun that the payoff is ultimately a convoluted disappointment, but I can hardly complain considering how many times I gasped or cringed or whispered "yesss" throughout the rest of it.

The surprise is not that a body count thriller released in January isn't good. The surprise is that it's almost good

The end of this s--- turned into Inspector Gadget... it became a different movie.

I'm enjoying myself but only at a medium level... but it believed too much in its own hype.
January 7, 2019
At the end of the day Escape Room is a pretty solid horror movie.
January 7, 2019
A diet version of the Saw franchise: PG-13, modestly inventive, fun rather than gruesome, with a few characters who are even likable.

Once Escape Room finds its groove, it shines on a number of levels, not the least of which is the thrill of watching people battle nightmarish versions of a traditionally fun activity.
January 7, 2019
It's a fun movie and a good way to spend 100 minutes and so you should go see it.
January 7, 2019
A decently clever movie that loses confidence in itself the moment it most needs it. As a result, it knocks down the house of cards it had, heretofore, adequately stacked.
January 7, 2019
Altogether, "Escape Room" scores some unexpected points given the circumstances, but falls short of what it might have been with another draft or two back in the writing stage.

January 7, 2019
Captivating settings, interesting camera angles, and a fast-paced narrative will pull you into the tension of the game. However, unlikable characters and a perplexing plot hindered any potential it had.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
January 7, 2019
Almost every major puzzle is honestly quite thrilling, but it's the characters themselves that are Escape Room's biggest issue.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

...there is an inventiveness to this whole endeavor that makes Escape Room fun to watch.
