Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Mystery Sci-Fi - This is a thriller aimed primarily at young adult moviegoers. While rated PG-13, and there is no graphic gore, there is frequent profanity plus a number of intense sequences too strong for young kids. There are some familiar but not hugely known names in the cast, such as actors known for television roles, such as Jay Ellis and Deborah Ann Woll.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...a sometimes diverting, but overly familiar series of set pieces in search of a good melodrama. There's not much of a plot: six disposable protagonists try to solve a series of inter-connected puzzles, and death is the penalty for failure.

USA Today Full Review
Average It was inevitable that "Escape Room”...would be a bad movie. The premise ("Find the clues or die”) is too obvious, too easy, for anyone with real ambition to want to run with it. But at least it could have been fun-bad, not just boring-bad.

NY Post Full Review
Below Average It's not asking much that a thriller be scary or shocking. This one waffles between being predictable and absurd. I won't spoil the groaner of an ending. Let's just say you'll be pleased to escape.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 18 moviegoers:
This movie wasn't well attended. From two showings we were only able to collect these 18 reviews.
TEENS: All three males loved "Escape Room." One female also loved it, but the other one felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone female loved it.
ADULTS: Of the five males, three loved "Escape Room" and the remaining two enjoyed it very much. These are great reviews from the males. The ladies didn't enjoy it nearly as much. One loved it, two enjoyed it very much, but the remaining four felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
