If you enjoyed the first Escape Room—I did—then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this sequel because it’s really a continuation of the first movie. Both movies are so short the two of them together add up to one properly long movie.
I wish I had rewatched the first Escape Room prior to seeing the follow-up. But, the first 2 1/2 minutes of this movie recap what happened. But given that the end credits of Tournament of Champions are 7 minutes long that leaves this movie with less than 80 minutes of original content. To me, that feels a little too short.
On one hand, this movie doesn’t dawdle and drag scenes out unnecessarily, which many movies mistakenly do. On the other hand, there seems to be a lack of meat on the bone so to speak. I think the answer lies somewhere in giving the characters a little more time to interact between challenges. I think the creators feel like they don’t want to keep to a frantic pace, but adding breathing scenes helps the characters bond, which gives the audience a chance to bond with the characters and raises the stakes.
About The Peetimes: I have two good Peetimes. I would recommend the 2nd one because it doesn’t involve any clue solving.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Escape Room: Tournament of Champions. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
