Escape Room is too contrived to convince us of genuine peril.
February 3, 2019
The beginning starts out strong as a psychological, terror rollercoaster ride infused with humor. Shortly thereafter, you realize the similarities of other films like Clue and Game Night is the moment when it all goes off track.

Total nonsense. It makes no sense.
February 2, 2019
Summing up, one can only say that the film tries to do too many things at the same time and that leads to its downfall.

Don't even attempt to solve the puzzle; just stay away from the Escape Room.

Director Adam Robitel tries to hard sell the tried and tested concept with a brand-new packaging, which soon wears thin.
February 1, 2019
There is some enthusiasm on display at the outset...but the film, possibly prefiguring the response of any rational audience, is soon enervated by its own tiresome premise.

It has the Kafkaesque set-up of Vincenzo Natali's Cube, the claustrophobia of the M Night Shyamalan-produced Agatha Christie reimagining, Devil, and the ambition of a rejected Black Mirror episode.

The film is a knock-off construction with a bit of an identity crisis, marketed as horror but lacking either the Rube Goldberg ingenuity or sick verve of its genre bedfellows.

The formulaic frightener 'Escape Room' is certainly not worth entering for its cheap, collapsed creepiness. Dismissive and exhaustingly familiar, 'Escape Room' simply goes through the telegraphed macabre motions.

[The film] has been proficiently realized but doesn't bring enough variety to the storytelling table.

Escape Room is like The Crystal Maze with more death. It's fun at the start then loses its way, but it'll do until 'Flossing: The Movie' comes along.

If you're looking for a version of Saw suitable for a younger audience, you've come to the right place. But, has anyone ever wanted that?

"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!"

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.

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
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.
