SEQUEL TO THE WORLD WIDE SMASH HIT AND CULT CLASSIC Eight strangers wake up in a bizarre cube with no recollection of how they got there and no idea of how to get out. They soon discover that they're in a deadly dimension where the laws of physics don't apply and they must unravel the secrets of the "hypercube" in order to survive.

A few basic comments though - I don't think this movie is self-explanatory, at the level of mathematical theory. Which means, if you don't sometimes find yourself lying awake at night teasing your brain with multi-dimensional geometries, you probably simply won't enjoy it.
This is not about being smart or dumb - it's about your interests and pre-existing inclinations. I can think of subjects for films that would leave me wondering what the point is - ones where I don't have enough background or interest in the topic.
As a "sequel" this is dangerous. Whereas CUBE 1 was a nice mechanical device presented in a thriller, CUBE^2 is a deviously complex theoretical construct presented as science fiction.
I saw a copy of the used dvd for sale at my local video rent-all, and decided to rent the tape first in case, as most sequels do, this one was awful. Watched it twice that night. Bought the dvd. Have watched it about six times in a week... very unusual for me...
The film is chock full of presaging and detail. It is flawed, of course. I can think of twelve hours of scenes I would have like to have seen in it, and I bet the creators had to delete ten times that many ideas. It heavily rewards repeated viewing, but, even more so, stimulates curiosity, creativity and confusion for many more hours than it takes to watch it.
So my recommendation? If you read Flatland more than twice, if you occasionally dig out Einsteins little book just for beach reading, you'll probably enjoy the mental gymnastics of this film. If not, you'll probably think it is stupid.
complicated than the first.there is a lot going on and sometimes it is
very confusing.there are some things that don't make sense.however i
liked the characters better.i thought there was a better mix than in
the first one.if you're a gore hound,this movie likely won't satisfy
you in that area.i thought the movie was much faster paced than the
original and had a bit higher budget.i liked a some of the special
effects,although they are a bit cheesy.the acting was pretty good,i
thought.i did find the movie a bit too technical at times.the other
thing i didn't like was the ending.it seemed too abrupt and and didn't
make much sense.overall,though i liked it a bit better than the first
one.i give "Cube 2: Hypercube" 3.5/5
In this sequel, we are introduced to a similar band of characters who are placed into the cube against their will, and again they try to find their way out of the awful waking nightmare. However, there are a few twists this time. In the Hypercube (a somewhat far-fetched theory in both physics and mathematics) the people are not only traveling through 3 dimensions, but four. In other words, these unsuspecting and unwilling participants must face variants of gravity and time within each room of the cube. They come across themselves in alternate realities. Furthermore, there are traps as in the original film, but they seem to have a supernatural element. They aren't the simple, explainable mechanical traps that we encountered in the previous film.
One thing I enjoyed about the first film was that the concept was somewhat believable. The maze and traps were mechanical and based on mathematical principles. There was a solid explanation, and thus a way out. In the sequel, there really was no big mystery (mathematical problem) to resolve. Furthermore, in the original film, the group of people stuck in the cube were all there for a purpose.Read more ›
