Editorial Reviews

Jack (Hauser) and his brother Tyler (Eddie Cibrian) are thrill-seeking professional cave explorers who run a team of the top divers in the world. They arrive in Romania with all the latest equipment, including a new type of scuba tank allowing a diver to remain submerged for up to 24 hours. The crack unit, which also includes Charlie (Perabo) and Buchanan (Chestnut) immediately begins their exploration. But what they find deep inside the caves is not just a anew eco-system, but an entirely new species altogether...

Customer Reviews

Once inside the cave, the divers patrol its waters and discover strange creatures, like slimy moles, slithering around.

How fascinating the scenes are in this movie when it comes to the cave- this part of the film creeps me out through its darkness and just the ominous feel it gives.
I won't ruin it, but let me just say this: I thought the movie already couldn't get any more incomprehensible, and then I saw the ending.

Let me start out by saying that I'm about as big a sci-fi fan that you will find anywhere and I've seen them all. With that in mind I'm little confused on what basis some of these other reviewers are using in order to review this film... as in regard to the poor reviews.

I guess I'm old school when it comes to Sci-Fi action with likes of cult Sci-Fi classics such as Forbidden Planet, the Thing, Alien, Mimic, Leviathon, the Relic, Pitch Black, etc. Following in that category I personally believed this to be one of the best Sci-Fi action-thrillers to come along in many years and trust me...I've seen some very bad ones.

First thing to consider with the Cave is it's very original considering over the past 50 years just about every type of plot & senerio has been done, re-done, and done again with a different twist. If you are an old school Sci-Fi fan you can see how the Cave might have been influenced by some classics of the past, but it undoubtedly stands on it's own merit. I don't want to get too in-depth on this review because I would hate to play spoiler and give away to much of the premise as I could easily do. I'll just conclude by saying that if you are partial to comedy movies then you might not care for this film.... If you are partial to love storys and/or "girlie" type movies you might not care for this film.... If you are partial to deep psychological thrillers then you might not enjoy this film....If you are partial to hardcore gore slasher flicks then you might not care for this film... If you believe yourself to be a big fan of Sci-Fi thrillers then you will LOVE the Cave.

If you like good B-horror movies with nasty critters that go Bite in the Nite, a group of people (in this case scientists and cave divers) waiting to get picked off one by one, and a unique atmosphere that adds to the creeping horror, then you will love The Cave. Whether alien planet or dark underground caverns, backdrop is important to a horror film, and the location of this film helps to highlight the monstrosities that come crawling out to greet their guests.

The film starts with a group of treasure hunters who break into this ancient church, hoping to discover riches buried underneath the decorative seal on the floor. After a silly mistake in which they blow up the seal while standing too close, they all fall down. Screaming.

Later, in more modern times, a group of scientists and cave divers enter, hoping to go where no man has gone before. They set up a base camp in a cavern while sending a diver through a long, long underwater tunnel to map it out. Because of a strange message from said diver after he enters the next cavern, the entire team, typical of b-horror, follows. The tunnel collapses behind them, about the same time our crew discovers they are not alone in the cave. Trapped, with no communication to the outside and low on food and water, our merry group of mistake-makers must find a way out before they are all eaten. Rock wall climbing, ice climbing, diving, riding down wild water tunnels and waterfalls, hiding in still pools, escape begins to look bleaker and bleaker as the way out becomes harder to reach.

The scenery and photography are great, the cave is creepy and dark, and the acting, while not memorable, is not as bad as some folks have mentioned. The best part, as with any monster movie, are the monsters.

I saw the previews for this low budget horror/thriller and saw it at the theater. I thought it was decent. Was it an oscar winner? No, but really, was it supposed to be?

As for a couple of hour diversion, The Cave was fine. I came in with fairly low expectations and walked away feeling satisfied. I don't understand all the negativity towards it.

If you buy the DVD, don't expect a megabuck blockbuster flick. It is a fairly low buget movie that put most of its money into really classy sets. Aliens, it ain't, but for spending a fun night in front of the TV, The Cave meets the bill. There are many, many horror movies that are really terrible. I just don't think The Cave fits that bill.

UPDATE: It's now 2013 and I have come to appreciate this picture even more over the years. I have even up'ed my star rating from a 3 to a 4. The movie still looks good (you can stream it on Amazon), the acting is fine . . . I think it holds up much better than a lot of the junk horror movies coming out today will. If you haven't seen this yet, do yourself a favor and watch it.

The good news: this movie features some of the best sets I've ever seen in a movie. The set design, the props, the colors---everything that is visual about this movie is top-notch. This is the definition of eye-candy, right here. Beautiful. Brilliant images fill the screen from start to finish. And since not many movies are set underwater or within caves, many of the sets look exotic and otherworldly, which is all the more reason the visuals are so appealing.

The bad news: everything else.

"The Cave" is a subpar action-horror with a bunch of slimy, fanged monsters stalking and/or eating a group of young, attractive explorers. It features pretty much all of the cliches you'd expect from an action-horror and doesn't really try to break the mold. This wouldn't be a problem, necessarily, if the script and acting and direction were at least done well. Unfortunately, they aren't.

There are only two good actors in the whole movie: Cole Hauser and Daniel Dae Kim. The latter is on screen for about ten minutes, total, and for six of those minutes he just runs around screaming. Not a great opportunity to show off talent. Hauser does a decent job, but the character he has to play is ludicrous and his lines are laughable, so you don't really notice his performance half the time.

Everybody else is forgettable. The female lead, in particular, is bland.

The screenplay is aggravating. We are told, in the beginning of the movie, that these characters are professionals and scientists, but they speak like losers. For example, when they first go into The Cave, Blonde Girl screams, "Totally awesome!
