Escape Room (2019)

Rated PG-13 for terror/perilous action, violence, some suggestive material and language

Quote:Six adventurous strangers travel to a mysterious building to experience the escape room -- a game where players compete to solve a series of puzzles to win $10,000. What starts out as seemingly innocent fun soon turns into a living nightmare as the four men and two women discover each room is an elaborate trap that's part of a sadistic game of life or death.

This was... actually not bad? Okay, sure, the final act is completely ridiculous, and the story is pretty shallow, but the basic premise -- people trying to escape a series of lethal escape rooms -- works on the same level as a good Saw movie, albeit PG-13 with special effects instead of gore. It's dumb as hell, but it's still good popcorn entertainment, and a lot better than I feared it might be.

My full review is here.

This looks like a more fun version of Saw (though maybe not as good as some of the better ones). I love Deborah

There are better Saw movies, true, but if this movie gets one thing about that series right, it's the fun of it all.
