After Cube 2: Hypercube arrived with a thud I didn’t think that Cube Zero would be notable in any way, shape, or form. I figured that it would downgrade further and this would be the last we ever heard of the franchise. After having sat down and grooved on everything that Cube Zero had to offer, I can only hope that this isn’t the end. There’s still juice in this series, and writer/director Ernie Barbarash managed to squeeze much more out of it than I thought was possible.

What’s so great about the Cube series is that it has some mystery aspects to it. What is the Cube Experiment and who is behind it? Well, Zero lets us in on some details about the first question, but as for the second, I guess we’ll have to wait another couple years to find that out.

Acting as a prequel to Cube and Cube 2, Cube Zero branches out from the cube and brings us the movie from a second perspective. Wynn and Dodd spend their lives in a poorly lit, underground office where they push the buttons that keep the Cube moving. They’re under the impression that convicted criminals have consented to being put into the Cube, so they don’t have much of a problem with the unlucky fellows eventually being brutally killed. Today they’re observing a new group. Inside the Cube is Cassandra Rains and a few other people who must team up together to try and survive their predicament. When the curious Wynn discovers that Cassandra’s file doesn’t contain a consent form, he begins to worry, eventually trying to seek out assistance from one of his bosses. You can just imagine how well that is received.

Cube Zero is a violent, relatively high paced affair that wrapped me in from the start and never lost its steadfast hold on me. It slips up every now and then, and doesn’t match the original Cube, but it’s still got a lot of great qualities to praise. Writer/director Ernie Barbarash has managed to craft himself a film worthy of its predecessor’s name.
DVD: Ernie Barbarash provides a fun commentary track, there’s a decent making of, a music video, and two storyboard-to-film comparisons.
