This low-budget science-fiction drama, winner of a 1997 Toronto Film Festival prize for "Best Canadian First Feature," depicts the plight of a group of people clad in prison-style uniforms and trapped in futuristic cube-like metal cells. Their memories are hazy; no one can recall how they got there. Alderson (Julian Richings) awakens in a cell, seeks an exit, and arrives in an adjacent cube where he's sliced and diced. Former cop Quentin (Maurice Dean-Wint) becomes the group leader, and he's challenged by conspiracy theorist Dr. Holloway (Nicky Guadagni). Government worker Worth (David Hewlett) remembers a past government link to the project. A discovery that the cubes have numerical codes suggests study by math-student Leaven (Nicole deBoer) while former thief Rennes (Wayne Robson) knows some escape tricks. However, the extreme behavior of Kazan (Andrew Miller) becomes a threat to their survival. Also shown at the 1997 Vancouver Film Festival.

    This is a terrific movie! My wife and I love it, it's a classic. I originally bought this on VHS many years ago when it first came out. I've since made the transition to DVDs and bought it again. This is one of those movies that you'll never get tired of watching, it's just as entertaining every time. This film will definitely make you think and will keep you on the edge of your seat, from the first scene to the last. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this movie and its two sequels, Cube 2: Hypercube and Cube Zero. Buy all three!!!

    I first saw this movie in my Discreet Math class in high school over 10 years ago. If you don't mind the math and the gore, then you'll love this movie. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, whilst making you think and keeping you guessing. I definately recommend this movie if you don't have a weak stomache. Imagine if the government really did have something like CUBE in existence...it's a scary thought.

    The story is the highlight here. Well written and good cinematography. Acting is fair. Sets are well made and with using good camera angles despite how cheap overall movie costed to produce.

    This was a pleasant surprise. Didn't receive good reviews and I didn't expect much - but turned out to be a pleasantly entertaining film. Complex plot, although somewhat far-fetched.
