Cube 2: Hypercube

2.5/5 stars

I watched the original Cube when it first aired (in 1998?). I’d enjoyed it, and when I saw that there was a sequel, I knew I had to watch. (My main complaint about Cube was Nicole de Boer, who played Ezri Dax on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. While she did a good job in Cube, I did not like her portrayal of the Dax character, so I had a hard time getting past that.)

Hypercube was equally well done. The characters climb from room to room trying to figure out where they are and how to get out. Some rooms are booby trapped, others have a time-differential. A cool twist was that, since they were in a hypercube, quantum-mechanical weirdness allowed for multiple realities. So we run into characters whose fate is different that we’d first seen. Unlike Cube, there seems to be a connection between the characters, but I still didn’t entirely understand the ending. I think I liked the open ending of Cube better.
