About six people who find themselves trapped in a maze-like cube and have to figure a way out, while evading fatal traps. Six people are locked in a mysterious cube shaped room. These 6 people are: 29-year-old engineer Yuichi Goto, 37-year-old association employee Asako Kai, 31-year-old Freeter Shinji Ochi, 13-year-old middle school student Chiharu Uno, 39-year-old mechanic Hiroshi Ide and 61-year-old company executive Kazumasa Ando. These 6 people are complete strangers to each other. They don't know why they are locked in the room, but they try to escape out of the mysterious cube. If they can't decipher the code, they won't get out of the cube. (Source: MyDramaList, AsianWiki) ~~ Remake of the Canadian movie “CUBE” [1997]. Edit Translation

There are two ways of making a good remake: make it better or make it different.

Cube failed at both. It was not interesting, not innovative and the special effects were laughable - apparently people there have no internal organs.

Being perfectly honest, the only good thing was the acting. I am amazed how the actors were able to deliver a solid performance, when most characters had ridiculous arcs and out of the blue quick last minute changes of heart.

I think the worst crime of this movie was the fact it was simply boring. There were hardly any deaths nor traps shown. The ones we got were as basic as they can get.

There is nothing Cube 2021 can offer that Cube 1997 did not already deliver, so why bother watching?

A bit predictable...

First things first, I have not seen the original so this will have no comparison whatsoever.

I don't really have much to say about this, to be honest. Initially, I was excited. I had watched the trailer and had high expectations because of it, along with the fact that I'm familiar with most of the actors in this film.

But ultimately, it fell flat.
Visually, it was great. The set was amazing, and the acting was good. They all played their characters well, despite not having much to work with because this of course all takes place in a cube. It was clear the type of people they all were. But, it sometimes felt repetitive. Like yes, we know you hate young people, but you don't have to complain about them every five minutes. And I feel like I've seen Okuda Maskai play similar characters before - is it just me, or is he typecasted to play roles where he's a bit crazy...?

The only other problem was that it was so predictable. Like I mentioned above, it was made clear what type of lives they all lived which made it easy to guess everyone's outcome. Because of that, it sucked the fun out for me, unfortunately. It was also bizarrely long for a film which covers so little situations and is constricted to one location.

Maybe watching this again and also the original will change my opinion though. Either way, I'm not sure who I'd recommend this to - I assume fans of the original would be curious to form their own judgement. And also if you're a fan of any of the actors. I was initially only interested because of Suda Masaki (but any project with Takumi and Masaki is always a plus in my books).
