‘Escape Room 2’ Director Explains That Crazy Twist Ending
(This article comprises solely the largest of spoilers for “Escape Room: Tournament of Champions”)
“Escape Room: Tournament of Champions” is nothing if not very fast-paced — it’s a film that merely refuses to allow you to ponder what’s occurring, as a result of earlier than you’re in a position to course of a personality’s demise, for instance, the movie has already moved on to the following factor.
The “Escape Room” sequel catches up with Zoey (Taylor Russell) and Ben (Logan Miller) roughly the place we left them: attempting to stay their lives whereas coping with the trauma of their experiences within the first film. Zoey is seeing a therapist who’s attempting to get her to beat her concern of flying — and who doesn’t appear to consider her story in regards to the escape room.
But Zoey needs to face her fears a unique means: by exposing Minos, the nebulous group behind the lethal escape rooms. She convinces Ben to go to New York along with her — by automotive, so we keep away from the escape room from the very finish of the final film for now — they usually examine what appears lots just like the sort of place Minos would have an escape room, however now it’s empty.
So they take a journey on the subway from there, and it seems their practice automotive is an escape room. Everyone else there reveals in addition they survived a Minos room earlier than — they understand that is the titular “tournament of champions.”
From there, issues transfer so rapidly that no person, together with the viewers, will ever actually have an opportunity to catch their breath. Characters die abruptly, generally even suspiciously. (While I used to be watching, I wasn’t positive if this was by design or if it was simply the results of chopping the film all the way down to below 90 minutes, or some combination thereof.)
Then we get to the ending. Ben is trapped in an hermetic room that’s filling with water, and Zoey is confronted by Amanda (Deborah Ann Woll) — in some way nonetheless alive after apparently falling to her demise within the the other way up room within the first film. She says Minos faked her demise after which compelled her to design this present recreation that Zoey is taking part in. And they need Zoey to design the following one, or they’ll kill Ben.
Zoey rejects the provide and manages, as all the time, to discover a completely different means out. She, Ben and Amanda get out safely, handle to achieve the cops — who give her a surprisingly fast report about how they’re already arresting Minos’ people — and escape with their lives. Zoey is suspicious as a result of it appears too straightforward. But Ben is adamant: this story is over, and it’s time to go house. Zoey decides to place a bow on issues by taking a airplane.
And now we lastly get to the airplane escape room that we noticed on the very finish of the final film. Though we don’t get to see the way it performs out, as a result of the film ends with that reveal, and Zoey’s realization that all the things that occurred in New York was meant to get her thus far.
This ending invitations so many questions. How many individuals does Zoey know who secretly work for Minos? Her therapist is a chief candidate due to how she principally demanded that Zoey take a flight originally of the film. Minos additionally used cues from that session, and a lady who seemed precisely just like the therapist from behind, let her know that the airplane isn’t a traditional flight. Is that as a result of Minos was spying on Zoey, or was the therapist really in on it?
Likewise, there’s purpose to suspect Ben. In the flashback montage that we see as Zoey is realizing what’s occurring with the airplane, “Escape Room” reminds us how emphatic Ben was when he was attempting to persuade her that the entire thing was over. Is that simply because he needed so badly for it to be finished with that he was deluding himself? Remember, he didn’t need any a part of going after Minos — going house and pretending none of this ever occurred is strictly the kind of method he would take. But if he have been Minos, he would additionally attempt to allay her fears so she would get on that airplane.
