Editors Note: Today is ‘Cube’ day (for not other reason than to share Garrett’s thoughts on each movie in the franchise). The review of the first film is short, but to Garrett’s point—we’ve added to the post to give the film more context. These additions are from the ‘That’s Entertainment’ editing team and are summarizations of plot descriptions. 

Director: Vincenzo Natali
Writers: André Bijelic, Vincenzo Natali
Stars: Nicole de Boer, Maurice Dean Wint, David Hewlett

Editors Summary of the plot to ‘Cube’:
