It`s hard to find an original idea among hyper production cube_ver2 of movies especially now-days. The Cube is very original although it bases it`s story on a Jim Hanson(wtf, yeah it`s true The Muppet Man thought of this first, check out the imdb link below) flick from 1969. A bunch of people with different skills and jobs are trapped inside a giant cube, which is divided into smaller room-cubes that are rigged with deadly traps, and they roam the cube searching for the exit.

So we got the main quest of escaping the cube and surviving, and the fear and paranoia of the people involved as the underlaying story. Effects are pretty brutal and gory and what is most important, well done. Acid ruined faces, wire that shreds you into pieces, very good, very good.  Beautifully dynamic movie, with colorful characters. There was two sequels with serous cases of milking…
