Amélie Poulain’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hooptober7.0 #15 (2/2 extra credit films) The first Cube movie was innovative. Using a small cast with limited locations and a low budget, it managed to make a film that was intriguing, suspenseful, and fun. Cube 2: Hyoercube goes to show that a bigger budget doesn’t necessarily mean better quality. There were serious miscasting issues. (“Maybe it’s aboot time I head back to Cana— I mean, Connecticut where I’m a gritty private eye, eh?”) The big twist wasn’t a twist at all. The majority of the special effects were downright laughable. It lacked the mystery and tension of the first film. The pacing seemed glacial at times. The last scene which was intended to leave the viewer shocked instead provided relief that the film was over.
