[F]or a movie set entirely in, er, rooms Escape Room never feels confined.

The production design on this film is fantastic... I was dazzled from scene to scene.

Escape Room provides just about enough entertainment for the first two-thirds of its running time to get away with being a reasonably enjoyable Saturday night rental.

There's enough here to suggest that a sequel would not be entirely unwelcome. More Escape Rooms, please.

It's not original, yet it delivers tension and scares with confident aplomb. Well worth checking out.

If you haven't seen Escape Room yet, don't miss out on it, not only because it's a perfect Saturday night at the movies, but also for some fun, sustained suspense, people of colour in solid roles...

There's no denying the popcorn entertainment value is strong, resulting in a neat thriller that's far more entertaining than it has any right to be

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.

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.

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

Is Escape Room a perfect film? Hardly, but it delivers on what a thriller should deliver on.

Robitel does get credit for laying out an impressive set piece acts one and two that make you eager to play this game again.

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.

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.

Escape Room could be interpreted as a cynical comment on the pursuit of immersion in popular entertainment.
February 6, 2019
Escape Room is not anything to get terribly excited about. But where suspense is concerned, the premise works: even when the trajectory of the story is easy to predict, there's no knowing what may be hidden behind any specific locked door.

The entertainment to be had watching people younger and prettier than yourself being tormented on the big screen will never tire.
February 2, 2019
Escape Room is a nifty and smartly woven psychological concept that delivers.
February 1, 2019
There's nothing remotely new or original about this low-budget horror, but director Adam Robitel and his cast do enough to make it interesting for a while.

Nifty, nasty high-concept horror, with dabs of Saw and Final Destination.
