Reminds me of Cabin in The Woods except actually has a good ending. Excited for the second one. Overall great movie! All the characters are likeable and you can connect with all of them! Interesting plot kept me interested the whole time. It was Predictable but still a great movie! Awesome puzzles even though I was able to figure most of them out before the characters. Awesome Movie!

I surely thought I'd watch 5 minutes & not be interested in a horror sounding film. This was a surprise to me. Kept my full attention to the end.

Honestly better than you're probably expecting! Solid acting, fun trap scenarios, some decent writing! Biggest problem is the sequel bait ending.... or the FIVE different sequel bait endings they just pile up on you in the last twenty to thirty minutes. The movie straight up has to lie to you to make one of the endings work which is a big no/no for me. Can we please stop trying to build cinematic universes and just have movies begin and end within their allotted time?

I thought it was a really good movie. Definitely fastpaced and kept me on the edge of my seat. The premise of the story was really interesting and it's kind of scary how much this could actually happen to someone. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes an action filled horror movie. I

Very average movie targeting a teenager demographic. Surprisingly entertaining at times. But the last act spoils everything . I wish it had a different ending.

Reminder, this is fiction - let's keep it that way. SPOILER: Initial impression, cool 5-senses escape room. My take away from this movie ... 1> for all those who do not seek mental or emotional help, when needed, from family, friends, and/or medical professionals, consider this your alternative! 2> This story would highly justify adopting an exponentially increasing tax structure of the wealthy - the more money you make the more you should be taxed! Extraneous wealth leads to boredom and decreased intelligence. Again, reminder, this is fiction.

Escape room was an interesting action/thriller movie to say the least. The way that the people in the movie solved one problem to the next with such a fast pace definitely made me feel like I was in the movie. The backstories of all the characters gets twisted into the rooms, and there are some pieces you might figure out yourself and fill you with even more suspense! Escape Room is a good psychological thriller, but there are some downfalls to it. I'm sure this movie would have been much better if the CGI was higher quality. The cheap-looking special effects took me out of the movie and distracted me for a period of time. Aside from low quality CGI, I would recommend this movie to anybody that enjoys a good action and horror movie! @peraltiago4ever of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Escape Room was a really good movie, it reminded of the time when I went to an escape room. I really liked this movie because how each room had a unique aspect to it and how they had to fight there way through each room. This movie also showed us perspectives on each of the characters and what they were thinking in there had when they were surprised with a new room. Without giving any spoilers, this movie is about a group of people being invited to do an escape room, but then they realize this isn't an ordinary escape room, they are faced with daring challenges. I really liked this movie how they gave us a back story on each character. For these reasons I would give this movie a 5/5 rating. @Teen15 of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

It’s basically FINAL DESTINATION & SAW lite.
