My Movie Reviews-Sanctum
Anyway,I was excited to see this and settled down to watch.The movie starts with Josh (Rhys Wakefield) heading into the jungle where his dad (Richard Roxburgh) has a forward base camp inside the cave they have been exploring.After Josh reaches the bottom,they discover a storm has hit and they cannot reach the others at the top of the cave.Trapped below,with the water rising,the crew has to find another way out.
I won't tell to much of what happens so I won't ruin this for anyone else.I will just say that while trying to find a way to escape,the members of the diving party have to explore parts of the cave never gone into before.Through some surprise twists and expected outcomes,the movie spirals into a fight to survive.
There are a few great scenes in the movie and a couple I could have done without.I think, all in all, it was worth seeing.I would even watch it again because I always seem to catch something new when I watch a movie a few times.I liked the unexpected parts and there are some beautiful scenes inside the cave.About halfway through, I had figured out the ending, but I was still captivated enough to watch it the whole way through without getting up,which is rare for me.I wouldn't pay a ton to see this but it is worth the cost of renting or PPV.
