I did not have high hopes for this movie but I actually really liked it! I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through. Full of tension and suspense this is a great movie for a mature audience.

Good tension, lots of action, but nonsensical plot.

I choose not continue to watch this movie after 35 minutes into it. I agree with the comments from Dr-Alex.

Quite a good little horror film about 6 unwitting participants that were especially invited to play in the most advanced Escape Room game invented for a $10,000 prize. The first two thirds of the movie is quite tense and suspenseful with each room the diverse group of players must get through. The only problem is that the 3rd Act doesn't really work that well compared to the earlier parts of the movie. Taylor Russell is quite good in this and has a nice screen presence. The film is very similar to an earlier film made in Spain called Fermat's Room which had much tougher brainteasers for the characters to solve to get safely out of their predicaments.

I like this movie whose main goal is just to entertain us. And I think it does quite a decent job at that. I really liked the heroine and her evolvement through the picture. And she sure is beautiful to look at. I wasn't sure what the ending would be like but it surprises us to a certain extent which is difficult to do. I enjoyed the different rooms and puzzles. I look forward to the sequel which is in the works.

A fantastic movie! It was a perfect mix of suspense and mystery and you will find yourself holding your breath constantly! The escape rooms were designed and presented very cleverly and each character was so wonderfully brought to life by the actors portraying them. Overall, one of the best movies I have watched in a long while.

A simple plot with a strong social message with characters breaking the common stereotypes. i.e., the corner office executive is a young black man, the athletic combat veteran is a white female, and the quantum physicists is a black female. The two white males are cast in more traditional roles in blue collar jobs as a grocery stock clerk and a coal miner.

"Overall, I think Escape Room is fun enough and passable enough in the first half to be enjoyable fun, especially with a group of people. Some of the acting is good and watching the characters explore and navigate these rooms, which is clearly where all the attention went too because surely, it’s not character development."

Fun watch similar to the likes of the Cube/HyperCube/Cube Zero from 1997, and other movies such as The Exam (2009).

Entertaining but non stop action.
