...It had enough interesting ideas and an underlying commentary on classism to help it stay afloat, but it was ultimately too forgettable to leave an impact.

"It's fun whilst it lasts, but Escape Room takes a decent premise and quickly runs out of ideas and originality."

A better production value, and a pretty good cast, cannot make Escape Room a good example of its insanely tired subgenre. [Full review in Spanish].

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]

A decaffeinated cross 'Saw.' [Full Review in Spanish]

As with any mouthbreather feint to punch above its IQ, Escape Room is fond of invoking highbrow concepts to seem smart.

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 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.

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.

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.

The story of Escape Room wears out due to the constant twists and its obsession with surprising with each death. [Full Review in Spanish]

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]

Robitel seems to deal with a script that is flooded with forced turns of the screw, of guilty soliloquies, of attempts to be more shrewd than any formula. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 6, 2019
The movie always seems to be in two minds as to whether it should be giving you a real scare, or just a mild jolt.
February 6, 2019
Awesome production design illuminates this fun flick, repressed by a lack of real wickedness.
February 5, 2019
...the biggest puzzle of Escape Room is why they didn't spend a little more developing such a promising idea.
February 4, 2019
This was always going to be a trivial movie with paper-thin characters, but it should at least spring clever surprises. Generally, though, its mechanics are rusty and uninspired.
