Film Review : Escape Room (2019) |
Escape Room is part thriller, part horror taking cues from many films similar to it. Does it do well however or is it unable to escape it's own room its trapped in. The story is simple enough to follow. Six strangers all receive invitations to come to a all new Escape Room and if they can succeed they will be rewarded with $10,000. Only entering the first one they soon quickly realize that these rooms are quickly going from a game to life or death. They must then work together to make out and figure out why they were chosen for this. As a premise Escape Room while not being a new idea is still a good one. Having people trapped in a room with elaborate things going on that are against the participants is always entertaining. If it wasn't we would have a Saw franchise, Cube series, or movies similar to that. Many will slam it for being PG-13 as is the current trend with films like this and while an R rating would make it slightly better, in this rare case it didn't need to be. Tense
