    I quite liked it. Different from a lot of films. The acting was a bit wooden, but the film was different enough to gloss over the worst bits.

    I've seen this. It's pretty much the same as the first with several stale characters in crises hiding a truth but with a physics twist. The end screams franchise. Let's face it, it's a low budget production with a modicum of respect allowing it to draw in C or D list actors - i.e. Geraint Wyn Davies of This Life etc. and Matthew Ferguson of Nikita et al. - and the Canadians are going to cling to it like a floating mill log.
    If you liked the first then this may appeal but it has less edge to it in a story which thins the waters of fear somewhat. Although the simplicity of the cube's design is alluring, most of the effects would have a college comp' sci' student of the early 90's putting their feet up on the desk and feeling nostalgic. However, the worst thing to this is the very end. It's very clumsily handled.
