Trivia

When Rains, Haskell and Meyerhold enter the cube with a dead body, Haskell suggests he starved to death, with Rains replying "God, I'm hungry". This is a reference to Cube²: Hypercube (2002), where a character complained of hunger and killed a fellow captive and ate him. See more »

Goofs

When Haskell falls feet-first from one cube to the one below it, Wynn says, "There's no way he could have survived that," and he turns out to be correct. However, earlier in the film, Meyerhold makes the same fall head-first, and is able to stand and operate without apparent injury (except for a giant wound on the side of his face). See more »

Cube revolutions
4 February 2005 | by deastman_ukSee all my reviews

A perfectly adequate prequel to the first film. This time we see the men who operate the cube, but it doesn't take long to realise that they are still within the system.

This film owes a lot to the identity loss themes seen in Dark City and even the matrix, as the film resolves to show existence as a hierarchical and circular metaphor of continuous control.

This is low budget, but has a dated feeling that the original Cube film did not. Writers and set designers face a lot of pressure to create fresh ideas, and new ideas are sadly lacking here. The horror element is delivered well, but the sci-fi elements are rather tacked on.

(Saw this at Sci-fi London)
