Movie Reviews

Don't bother
Fast Eddie | Washington, USA | 09/25/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I am very open minded, and watch many movies. Being an Alcatraz fan, I was hoping this movie was going to not only entertaining, but would also show me some good footage of the island.....Wrong on both counts! I could make a better movie with my video camera than this mess. Poor plot, poor photography, this movie has about 5 minutes of value, and thats it. Rent it if you want, but even then, its no bargain. I run across maybe 2-5 movies a year that I think are a total waste of time, and this seems to be my #1 for 2007! 90 something minutes I will never get back, too bad...."
Low budget but interesting and creepy

"Alcatraz is a pretty creepy place to start with - especially at night.
It's a low budget film, and several of the actors aren't so great, but it's got a pretty cool plot, with a viral infection that creates a kind of "The Thing" situation but on Alcatraz. There is some interesting history of the island woven throughout the story, too.

Forensic scientists are trapped on the island and you don't know who/what is killing them, while at the same time they're digging up these remains - something like an American Indian version of a Nordic Beserker. If the director had more money, it probably would've been better, but the production value of "The Rock" adds a lot to the scary factor.

I heard it was the last film the Government will allow to be shot there. And apparently the cast and crew spent an entire night shooting on the Rock (watch the Director's commentary).

Worth the rental, some beer and popcorn.
Absolute waste of time and money...BAD MOVIE

"I enjoy cheesy films and budget movies occasionally, but...come on! This is a bad bad bad movie. The acting is horrific, the plot is lame, there is no continuity...

even the last few minutes is horrible...once it is supposed to be finished. *sigh* I better stop or I could write pages as to why this movie sucked some major donkey balls.

save your 90minutes. save your money and spend it on something better. It is a shame that this is the last movie to be shot on "the rock". I wish it had done it some justice."
