Review by mizi causevic (posted on 13-Feb-2005)

Naturally, whoever expected Cube 2: Hypercube to be better than the original Cube was dead wrong. I am huge fan of the first Cube and I always knew (since I heard that this was in works actually) that this sequel was not going to blow the first one out of the water. It's basically the same thing all over again and the only better thing about it is the visual aspect. The story line took a difference approach to it and the actors had some really cheesy lines which made me roll eyes quite a few times. However, this is a straight to video/dvd release so I guess everything was expected. All in all, the damn movie takes place in a Cube! What more can you really do that wasn't done and explained in the first one?

In the first movie the Cube the atmosphere was much more suspenseful and the characters were just plain better and generally seemed terrified with their situation. Sadly in Cube 2, some of the characters just did not display the same genuine fear that the first cast had. It almost seemed like a joke at certain parts. By all means, the cast was good, it's just that the script was weak and they could not do a whole lot. Cube 2 also focuses on different things that the first one, more of a "fantasy" and nothing exists type of deal which just made the movie seem like one of those nightmare flicks with a different universe which often seems like a cheap way out of a good story that just did not have a good ending in the first place.

Visually, this movie was stunning. The music was good and suspenseful but everything else was unfortunately below the bar. When it all comes down to it, this is a fun movie to watch on cable or even a decent rental from your local video store if you happen to be a huge fan of the original Cube. Be warned, this movie is not as good as the first one, but it is still cool to watch.
