“Escape Room: Tournament of Champions” is a 2021 Horror/Adventure movie that is the sequel to the 2019 movie “Escape Room.” It picks up where the first one left off bringing back Taylor Russell (Lost in Space), Logan Miller (The Walking Dead), and Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood), while adding Holland Roden (Teen Wolf), and Indya Moore (Queen & Slim).
Zoey (Russell), and Ben (Miller) are back and determined to find out who’s responsible for the escape rooms and get the proof they need to shut them down for good. They track down their headquarters in New York, while investigating they get roped into another escape room with a group of others who have also survived the ordeal once.
“Escape Room” is one of the best movies to come out of 2019, it was almost perfect if it wasn’t for the ending. It’s almost like they didn’t know how to end it so they dragged it out and added an additional ending scene. If it wasn’t for that I would give it a 10/10, but it’s still a very solid movie, so I was super excited to see the second one. Just like the first one this one is fast paced from the start and doesn’t slow down. They come back with bigger and more elaborate rooms. It glues you to the TV and the hour and a half run time feels like thirty minutes. It didn’t disappoint, but just like the first one the only issue is about the last twenty minutes. Once they reveal what their intentions for having Zoey there are, it’s just a little underwhelming to me. Still a fantastic film, if it was for that part, just like the first it would be a perfect 10. I’m giving it a 9/10. Also it sets its self up for a third installment, so I’ll be keeping a lookout for that.
