Movie Reviews

J. Moore | Lynwood, IL | 09/08/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is not your typical suspense thriller movie and I for one can appreciate that and enjoy that alone. The cinemotography was outstanding, that in itself is worth viewing. I like the dialogue as well as the strained relationship that was exhibited throughout. There were some subtleness but it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what was happening. This movie thoroughly entertained myself (50ish female) and my husband a huge special/sound effects, action packed non-stop kind a guy."
Why, Jim Caviezel, Whyyyyyyy?

"All I did while watching this dreck was wonder why someone with the talent of Jim Caviezel would think that this film adds to his life experience. I mean, he's played Jesus, and I just watched the "Thin Red Line" where he...plays Jesus, sort of, and now I just can't imagine how this was pitched to him as a good idea.

Other reviews have covered the plot elements adequately, but I must shine a light on the overall vileness of the two main characters. Constant, vicious, arguing. I realize this was part of the story, but there you have it - I don't enjoy nasty arguing between couples for two hours straight. Within 15 minutes I was pointing out to the Significant Other (who spent the whole movie being productive on the computer and leaving me to agonize alone) that I simply couldn't wait for one of them to be killed, just so I wouldn't have to listen to them any more.

"Look," I say, "Jim Caviezel is playing a jerk for the first time!"
"Look," I say, "That beach is really pretty."
"Look," I say, "They called that thing a Sea Cow. It's a manatee, isn't it?"
"No," says the S.O., "That's one of those other things. It's got a weird name, but it's not quite a manatee...."

And then they reveal it as a dugong (which I mistakenly thought was spelled, "dewgong," but that's a Pokemon, and this is a manatee-relative. A dugong? And then there's a snake, and a bush-baby-type thing, but a dugong? Who names these creatures? At least the dugong made another appearance (and a startling one at that) later in the movie, so they got their money's worth out of that big plastic model.

But, the answer to my whining query? I see it now, as the bare-chested Caviezel wanders up and down the coastline, looking tanned and fit. They sold him on the movie by showing him pictures of the beach. He got to spend every day out there, surfing and whatnot on a beautiful, isolated stretch of sand and turquoise water, and I really can't blame him for that.
What's The Point?

"Jim Caviezal is a great actor, but I don't get this movie. It's basically the story of a dysfunctional couple that goes camping and has a complete and total meltdown. There seems to be some kind of revenge of nature theme, but the whole thing doesn't connect; it's too ambiguous. The director needs to spell it out more clearly for idiots like me, because this one doesn't make a lick of sense.
There was plenty of tension in the movie to keep you interested in what was going to happen but ultimatly it goes nowhere. I would recommend Madison, Frequency (New Line Platinum Series) or Outlander, but this movie fails.
