I don't know much about survival, but it's evident that he had been cannibalizing even before that point, so he had probably been eating people in that whole time so it could have been a very long time. There's the wandering around, talking about the past, and speculation of why they're in the cube. In this strange dimension, the group of strangers begin facing a time crunch. The hypercube starts wearing away, and Kate opens a panel in the bottom, revealing a black void. How did they get there? Paley and Jerry realize that they may be in a , or a hypercube. This is a downer and makes the middle seem like it takes forever, and coupled with the weak, confusing story and lack of inventive traps, really brings this down. Remember, the first wasn't a flashy movie either, but a fantastic story with good elements that was done on a cheap budget and turned a penny, hence sequel.
Well, Cube 2 is the answer-but not really the best one. But one positive difference between the two is that this one seemed to be overall scarier. Some time later, a woman named Kate , detective Simon , a blind girl named Sasha , engineer Jerry , game developer Max , lawyer Julia Lindsey Connell , and an elderly woman named Mrs. And plus the background was just black, like the maze was built in space or something. I would recommend the original and maybe passing this one up all together.
Paley Barbara Gordon find themselves trapped in brightly lit cubes, each with six panels on each side which are doors to other rooms. Simon then appears behind Alex, old and blind in one eye, proving Alex's time theory. Kate finds Simon and hits him in the eye after he grabs her. The characters are all more broadly drawn, the dialogue is cheesier, and it looks faker. What I found were slick special effects, some decent acting, but very little of the charm that the original had. The absence of any knowledge about the experimentors made you literally create your own villain s. None of the simplicity is left.
I understand that the first gained a lot of popularity in the home video market, which prompted someone to try and cash in with a sequel, but this didn't really seem like a sequel, but more of a flashy remake of the original that couldn't cut it. Simon, alone and hungry, goes insane. The über-Military guy's comments on the phone make it sound like they are really contemplating a Cube3. The eight strangers explore their new surroundings, and they quickly learn that the fundamental laws of nature and physics that they know do not apply. Or to get her necklace? However that doesn't explain what he could have done for water. But he only had a handful of souvenirs on him, which means he probably stopped collecting after a while.
That will always be my favorite. I mean, they're my numbers! Outside of these great ideas, the film is pretty hollow. Discovering that they are in a hypercube, which has four dimensions across it and can fold back in on itself, which forces them to believe that an alternate reality is inside, as well as their self. From that point on, the characters take a seat and move along with a poor attempt at additional plot. Kate finds that the tesseract is shrinking, and kills Simon with the knife.
Eight strangers find themselves waking up in a strange cube-shaped room with no recollection of how they came to be there. I'd certainly pay to see it, but please go back and watch the first over to see why it was so neat. It was a psychological thriller trying on the Science Fiction coat, and it worked to perfection. That wave-like movement of the maze might have been a representation of that. . Simon tries to save Mrs. And in the same way it just doesn't workAlso, character development is practically nonexistent.
Don't I at least get a shot at my numbers, you stupid fucks? Meanwhile, Kate finds grisly alternate realities in other rooms. This cube was more like a time trial you had to survive to the end of in order to escape. The best part of the film is how it continually keeps you on your feet, long after you've seen it. And that is why it fails miserably. Not once does it fall together so that a simply answer can be arrived at that will explain everything, and instead, it just chooses to get more and more incoherent ending up being way too complicated for its own good. There is no exit door in a Hypercube! Unless you had seen the first movie and were actually expecting focus on character archs, you would find yourself thinking how terribly predictable the characters are. But if you are a big fan of the first Cube, and expect a little less, you will enjoy Cube 2: Hypercube.
In the first, you barely knew anything about the giant cube they were in. That title is terrible but I placated myself with the idea that a Hypercube is actually a real theoretical mathematical construct. Paley is an undercover spy, so he gags and ties her up, but crystal beams start protruding from the walls. Another scene shows on of them stabbing a character in the eye, only to then turn around and encounter them on the other side of the room a moment later, having aged several years and seeking revenge. A wall begins to close in on the group. Where did the simplicity go? And although the random crazy psycho killer is more random here than the first, I liked him more, and he was great as he was going through the hypercube.
They're not different colors, and there's no booby traps. Max and Julia, disturbed that Simon killed Mrs. After introducing themselves, it takes nearly forty minutes before the first trap is sprung, and that's far too long to be standing around arguing with each other. Written by Trivia Used a similar staging method as the first film. If you want to really watch it, watch it before seeing the original or not back-to-back, the differences will be quite startling.
What gave me hope for Lion's Gate was the frightening beginning and the fantastic ending. This is not Kate because she is standing on the other side of the room. There is also a quiet sound effect as it shows itself. Reviewed by DeviousMrBlonde 2 Hypercube. The Good News: There isn't a whole lot here to really like.
