X was the real YIt turns out humanity was the real four-dimensional government death cube.

How was the tagline not "A whole new dimension of horror?"

This was actually the first Cube movie I ever saw, but I had only seen the final 30 minutes. Having now rewatched it and having seen it in close proximity to the first Cube, I now think the original is probably stronger.

I still enjoyed this, and I'm not super into gore anyway, but I did find the largely-abstract traps less interesting. I also thought the ending (in which the tesseract falls apart) kind of fell apart. I don't see how I would care about the twist that occurs.
