The original Cube was a love it or loath it mindfcuk of a film from canada, now several years later comes its sequel.
The hypercube in question is a 4 dimensional cube, the blood and guts are far less but the suspense, suprises and quality mindfcuk is still there a plenty. Adding the fourth dimension takes this cube to another level with time and paralel universes thrown in you see living people discussing the fact they just watched themselves die, and dead people wondering why they just got there.
This time there is a connection between some or all of the protaganists and slowly all becomes clear. Its nice to see the fittest bird get her tits out and the little Jap woman is very nice too (but clothed throughout).
Its got the usual selection of misfits from a blind student to an old woman with senile dementure (very annoying) of course there is the requisite psychopath but thats not giving much away since you find out straight away.
Is it as good as the first cube? well not realy, the first one didnt realy leave much for a sequel but that doesnt mean this film is bad, in fact its bloody good in its own right.
On a side note the time coded screener is of exceptional quality for a well pre release movie so a quick dl is well worth it, i'm guessing but this film is probably better suited to home video than the big screen so if youcant watch it before i'd wait for the home video release.
8.5/10 (original cube 9/10)
