Excerpt: ) to a cave exploring operation he has going on in the largest and most inaccessible hole in the ground on the planet. This particular cave has underground waterways that are believed to empty out in the ocean and the goal of the project is to find that waterway.
Excerpt: Murphy’s Law is… err, sorry. Sanctum is a story of the old mantra, “what can go wrong, will go wrong.” Nothing goes right for these people, from deaths before their cave-trapped peril even begins to the mountain of dramatized end-the-suffering styled drowning, Sanctum is all about milking the...
Summary: Overall, 'Sanctum' is a fairly middle of the road Blu-ray release. The movie is strictly average. It's a bit slow at times, but manages to deliver suspense at key moments. The video could be better, but the audio presentation is excellent.
