Summary: Wow, this was terrible with the sort of script that makes me believe I could write better (and I didn't pass GSCE English), the acting was unbelievably bad with near constant shouting and a general lack of empathy or sympathy towards the characters meant I found myself picking fault with the lighting (see The Descent for how to do it properly), set design and continuity, rather than caring what happened.
Summary: I saw this film advertised at the start of another and have to say I had never heard of it. Like many other films, where a group of people get into trouble, there are certain clichés, but I found myself drawn to the characters and their situation and thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Summary: Contrary to a number of the reviews my wife and I actually enjoyed this movie. It was relatively fast moving, mostly believable and did not have a typical Hollywood outcome. The acting and filming were good and the setting quite stunning in places. Well worth a watch!
Summary: We watched this as a family & had to hold on to each other just about all the way through. Terrifyingly gripping. We can't say we enjoyed the experience but it was a good film because it is based on a true story and unbelievable how humans can treat each other. Never going caving!!
Summary: Note: This is identical to my review of this movie on Rotten Tomatoes. So here it is: This movie was a surprisingly good one. Now I have to say around the first half hour of the film the dialogue is pretty bad. There is a hell lot of swearing and in reality nobody would really curse that much. But after the cheesy half hour ends and the real movie kicks in it's actually pretty decent. The 3D in the film is better than most I should say. Since it's by James Cameron.
Better Than Most Reviews Have Said But Still Average!
28 June 2011
Summary: After reading reviews for this film I was expecting something terrible but i found it an OK film. Its not a massive blockbuster movie thats going to receive lots of awards but its still enjoyable to watch. Its probably an average film that you will watch once and not remember alot about it but its still better than reviews have stated in my opinion.
Summary: The swarm of negative reviews should warn potential viewers. Without the 3d effects we're left with something akin to the old Saturday morning kids adventure flicks. It is really hard to imagine that this came from the same creative mind as Avatar. It's so cheesy, such wooden acting and stilted dialogue. Best unintentionally funny line - "I'm not wearing the wet suit of a dead person!" So there.
Summary: Well this is a hit or miss for most. Either it will grab you in or it will spit you out. The effects/scenery is pretty darn cool but thats really about it. The acting I found somewhat cheesy and overblown but for the most part it entertained. I cant say it was great nor terrible but its half and half for me.
