Poster - Title Card rating: notes: Watch for the outlandish puzzles, otherwise avoid. It's high calorie, low nutrition cinema. Character? Plot? Whatever. Let's watch people bicker while trying to avoid almost certain death. Also, there's a weird cabal running things, setting it up for a possible sequel.

Outside Reviews:

2 out of 4 stars -

Escape Room has a handful of enjoyably bonkers moments, most of which involve nonsensical death traps. But Escape Room is also anemic compared to the Saw movies, as you might imagine based on the film's comparatively weak PG-13 rating. That wouldn't be a problem if there were other major differences between Escape Room and the Saw sequels. Sadly, Escape Room is only longer and more impersonal than what came before it.
