It's not the smartest movie you'll ever watch, but if you're a fan of the horror-thriller genre, this film will keep you fairly entertained even if it won't quite dazzle you with its inventiveness.

The script is a glaring insufficiency at the time of making the viewer participate in the film's tracks, dilemmas and resolutions, simply capricious. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 17, 2019
Escape Room manages to lock into current social trends and exploits the anxiety that could potentially surround them, delivering a largely exhilarating ride that feels quite different within its genre.
March 13, 2019
A decaffeinated cross 'Saw.' [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Escape Room picks up Saw's baton and adds action and adrenaline. [Full review in Spanish]

February 28, 2019
Is Escape Room a perfect film? Hardly, but it delivers on what a thriller should deliver on.
February 28, 2019
As with any mouthbreather feint to punch above its IQ, Escape Room is fond of invoking highbrow concepts to seem smart.

February 28, 2019
Robitel does get credit for laying out an impressive set piece acts one and two that make you eager to play this game again.
February 26, 2019
Where they go at the end just wasn't needed and left a bad taste in my mouth...it's not as horrible as you were thinking it would be, and that's due to a strong first half, but it falls apart.
February 24, 2019
I was surprised by how engaged I became in the storyline and like the characters themselves, you'll be wondering what they need to do to escape each room.
Full Review | Original Score: B
February 22, 2019
There are some solid flashpoints of tension early on, but as the ever-dwindling team shift from room to room it all becomes rather episodic and dull.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 21, 2019
These films work a treat when they are nasty, brutish, short and utterly aware of their own stupidities. Escape Room, despite some impressive design and few decent visual flourishes, ticks none of the boxes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 16, 2019
The superb, stranglehold direction of Adam Robitel draws you in early and never lets go, even after you think things have been resolved...a prime example of the economics of the horror genre. Serve the genre's fanbase and the world is yours.

February 13, 2019
Escape Room could be interpreted as a cynical comment on the pursuit of immersion in popular entertainment.
February 12, 2019
Escape Room manages to deliver even less than it offers, and with an already low bar, the exciting design and good performances cannot salvage this messy horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 8, 2019
The story of Escape Room wears out due to the constant twists and its obsession with surprising with each death. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 8, 2019
The film leaves too many loose ends in hopes of getting our wallets indefinitely. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 7, 2019
The filmmaker doesn't take advantage of his captive audience, locked in a dark room, and requires only a passive presence. [Full review in Spanish]
February 7, 2019
The film goes all to hell with an explanation so inanely preposterous that it would have been much better off if it had not bothered with an explanation at all.
February 7, 2019
The film is a game where no one has fun, not even the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
