Review

Cave is a formulaic thriller in the mould of The Descent, and almost equally ludicrous, but at least a lot better-looking. The production values are not bad considering the budget we're on here, and the film has some narrative drive and even suspense. The problem is that the stilted characters and lack of chemistry between them remove whatever credibility the premise could have had.
