Holy shit was this one bad. The last thing Cube needed was anything close to an explanation. With Kafka the hows and whys were completely immaterial. What was important was the exploration of hopelessness, impotence, alienation, humiliation, rejection, and confusion, and Cube 2 shoots itself in the foot trying to rationalize the irrational. It then steps on a landmine with the other foot with its even worse dialogue, acting, characterization, set design, and CGI, which is laughably bad, yet does nothing to make the film any less boring. I watched this on Amazon with commercials, and fuck me if I wasn't glad to hear about toothpaste every 15 minutes or so. The main character approached being sympathetic, I guess, and whatever her name was (no, I'm not going to expend extra energy on this film, put in a decent performance, but jesus, the rest of the movie? Ugh. At least it's not Boondock Saints. One star. Plus half a star for daring to show mummy butthole (BANDNAMEICALLEDIT).
