This review may contain spoilers
This review contains SMALL spoilers (parts of the games themselves) because I believe it's necessary to mention these things. Don't read this if you're sensitive to minor spoilers.

Story (3/10)
I decided to watch this movie because I like survival game horror flicks and the online broadcasting seemed to be a nice twist to the genre. However, the writing is so bad that I was unable to connect with even one character. A loaf of bread has more life in it than those characters who always live up to their respective stereotypes.

The plot was so predictable that very few plot twists only got that "I knew it all along." sigh out of me and the survival games seemed like a 4-year-old came up with them.

Unless you get excited over watching people "run 10 meters, eat a donut, run 10 meters again and drink a glass of water" to their death, you will probably agree with me on this if you decide to actually watch this.

Other "highlights" include a sweaty old man in his underpants hula hoop for five minutes and lots of furries.

As for the ending... Well, I'm not going to spoil you but it's quite disappointing. I get what they wanted to do with the movie and it's not confusing but it made the entire movie pointless in my eyes.


Acting/Cast (3/10)
I'm not really blaming (most) of the actors. The characters they had to portray were, as I mentioned before, robotic. The lead, in my eyes, did the worst job. When he's supposed to look frightened, he just stars at you with his mouth wide open and his eyes screaming "I'll kill you in your sleep".

I realize that this isn't a blockbuster movie and that these actors are amateurs but it was still painful to watch.


Music (5/10)
There's nothing "wrong" with the music because there are very few scenes with sound. And that's fine for this type of movie. They used classical songs which I'm sure everyone has heard like 1000 times in Japanese films/drama so yeah, five out of ten.


Rewatch Value (1/10)
I will definitely never watch this again. It was a huge disappointment (even though I did not really expect anything from it).


Overall
The concept could have been really good but the execution is ruined by terrible writing, acting and story. It might seem like i'm bitter about this but believe it or not, I'm trying hard to be just with this review. If someone decides to make a similar movie, I'll give it a shot.

Death Tube, as you predict, is similar to Saw movies and the like. This one is not so horrible-looking though. It does contains bloody scenes but other US films is much much more brutal.



The story is what I like in this movie. It is common, people gets drag into a game which requires them to kill other players. What impressed me is the idea of YouTube. What disappointed me is their movie effects. The blood used are obviously a fake, no much effort.



The acting did not make a good impression at all. All of the casts are not popular. They did their best but really, I'm not impressed.



Music is fine. Most of the scenes does not have sound because it will only ruin the mood.



Rewatch value is 7. I will watch this again some time, and will likely make my friend watch this too.



Overall, I give the movie a fair score.
