its quality, a very progressive sci-fi film, shot on ultra low budget but brilliantly devised.

Saw the first one at a local indy cinema when it first did the rounds, excellent.

Never bother seeing the second one though as I figured it'd be a crappy cash-in.

i was worried it might be a cash in but belive me, the effects are top notch, the claustrophobic "feel" of the film is not as bad, but the wonderful way they have completely different obstacles to overcome is classy.

the beauty about the first film was there were so many questions to be answered, in this one you get the feel they maybe added slightly too much plot other than simply what goes on in the cube, but its still worth a watch.

Rented Cube 2, didn't think much to it.

The idea is still strong enough that it wasn't a bad film, but it wasn't very good either. No where near as good as the original.

Thought the CGI traps were a bit wank and I agree with Doc about there being too much plot, one of the strengths of the first one was you didn't have clue was going on.

Probably worth a look for fans of the original but not exactly essential viewing.

Btw, rented Punch Drunk Love at the same time. Really enjoyed it. Very strange and I laughed out loud several times.

punch drunk love is a fucking amazing film! i sawe it in the cinema (its on tape already?) and i was left feelgin all warm and nice :)

its a bit of a headfuck though. very clever.

sat there with his date.
"i just have to go to the bathroom one second".
he goes in the bathroom, smashes the fuck out of the place, busting his hand up and everything, crying and shit for no reason.
back at the table:
"what happened to your hand?"
"nothing, uh we better go"
