I agree with Michael. (below) The original Cube was innovative and thought-provoking; the sequel Hyper Cube was a typical Hollywood makeover, poor copy of the first; and this prequel Cube Zero was much more true to the original. Most of the questions raised in Cube are answered in this film. The gore here was a bit over the top, but it’s easy enough (on DVD) to fast-forward past it. I’m glad I watched Cube Zero, as it gave some nice…
I was bored watching it. I don't even feel like recapping it for this review, the mere memory of it makes me feel bored again.
Seeing outside the cube removes any kind of suspension.
It gives answers, but the answers are so generic that it feels like the new writer is just pissing on my fondness of the first movie.
If you asked a 12 year old that has seen one too many shit sci-fi movies to write a plot for a new cube movie this would be it.
If you want dumb answers instead of fitting ambiguity, watch this & love it.
The third (and final?) cube movie reveals the point and purpose of the cubes from the last 2 movies. The dark, industrial look of the first film is revisited in this prequel and it is vastly superior to the scifi look of Hypercube. This film also seemed much gorier than the previous two.
To appreciate this film it is essential that you have seen the first two.
The most intriguing aspect of this film was the revelation of what the…
La ultima de una trilogia que nunca debio haber existido, la una fue tan perfecta...aunque esta no es tan mala como "hipercubo" explica cosas pero es mejor haber dejado un aire de misterio
YES!!! Old school Cube is back in da house! Don'tcha just love when that happens!
Intriguing story inside and outside of the Cube! A whacked out villain sets just the right tone!
Tricked out traps! Fiendishly Fun and Gory-licious! What more could you ask for!
While it was different to the other ones in the trilogy, this one was the worst out the three, I praise it for doing a turn around from the first two and changing it up a little bit, but everything about this to me was weak. A little bit predictable, watchable though.
Completamente prescindible película, con un presupuesto supongo que mínimo, totalmente vacia sin explicaciones, aburrida.
A sido la ultima de las 3 películas de la triología que se supone que es en realidad una precuela de como se hace todo.
La he terminado por que cada vez que leo sobre cube, todo el mundo me decía, no es que tienes que verlas enteras para entender el significado de la gran obra.
No, es un no.

Whilst a group of strangers try to escape the cube maze, their attempts are viewed by technicians on the outside.
Here we have the second sequel to the highly successful low budget horror / SF movie. Some of the basic plot is similar to the other entries, but there are a lot of elements that suggest this is a prequel to the original, but there are a lot of elements that show that technology is in fact superior, and it…
Leider kann ich nicht viel zu dieserm dritten Teil sagen, weil ich mich so gut wie gar nicht mehr an "Cube" und "Hypercube" erinnere. Zumindest der erste Teil muss aber besser gewesen sein... "Cube Zero" bringt einen zum lachen, weil er stellenweise so schlecht ist. Wenn man die Hintergründe beleuchten möchte, hätte man vielleicht die Klischees ein wenig sparsamer einsetzen sollen, oder zumindest mit einem Schuss Selbstironie. Der gesamte Look wirkt außerdem ziemlich billig. Mit viel gutem Willen 2 Sterne, und ich möchte jetzt doch noch mal die ersten beiden Teile sehen, um sie vergleichen zu können.
As a prequel it works well enough with a few silly elements thrown for good measure.
"Do you believe in God? It all hinges on that?!"
A small step up from Hypercube, but then again it'd be pretty difficult to be worse. Zero doesn't feel the same as the previous two, it keeps cutting away to tedious scenes set outside the cube and that ruined the atmosphere a little for me. The entire first half seemed to be comprised of those scenes outside the cube followed by a glorious but random death scene.
