Sanctum Reviews, “Avatar” this will not be. “Sanctum” is the first film with James Cameron’s name in the credits since his blockbuster blue alien in late 2009 but has served as executive producer on this latest adventure in 3-D, and “Sanctum” n is probably not to cross the 15 million mark this weekend. He’ll have to settle for second place at the box office behind the PG-13 thriller “The Roommate”.
The issue – above and beyond mixed reviews – is a largely unknown distribution, an R and a scenario unless commercially attractive. The plot unfolds as follows: Frank (Richard Roxburgh) and his team are exploring a massive system of underwater caves mostly in Papua New Guinea when a freak storm floods the region and the whole world forces to swim, dive and climb to flight. Claustrophobia and death ensue.

The Thrills “I loved every minute of the second visceral and exciting film of two acts. I was literally on the edge of my seat, disbelief suspended as a class clown in college. In scene after scene, disregard any intellectualism, I sat there thinking, ‘Holy crap, what would I do? ” [Director Alister] Grierson knows how to take action, and when the shot requires, the system Pace 3-D packs a punch. The agreement that 3-D can affect you psychologically seems to work well here. This is pure, classic film that makes the most of new technologies. “Jordan Hoffman, UGO -
The Script “The writing is really bad in this movie, and even talented actors such as Ioan Gruffudd (a Welshman, seemingly generic American dialect) and fellow adventurer played by Alice Parkinson (Australia, seeming even) stand out as rank amateurs. Everyone screams and panic and vomit pictures ever, if the context is hubris (“The cave is not going to beat me!”) or portents of doom (“The cave’ll kill you in a heartbeat heart “) or Duhs expository (” The cave is flooding! “) Or, after the last round of hypothermia or small clashes, some hard advice to those who go in telling the story (” Trust in the cave, and follow the river). ” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
Seeing it in IMAX “Just as 3-D research was condemned as a goose laying eggs rotten overpriced and more importantly, this action adventure cave diving is a reminder of how powerful the process can be when the right equipment falls into the right hand. (Warning consumers: I saw the IMAX version, your visual experience with non-IMAX theaters may differ.) “- Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal
Comparison Cameron “Cameron, to his credit, does not make movies boring, and if he was in charge, you can count on him to produce at least clammy monsters and / or companies struggling to give something to churn as heroes by darkness. Instead, the director Alister Grierson steps of the water. Its cast confronts dangers dumb cowards going nuts (really, if you were thousands of meters below the surface, would you attack the most skilful diver in your group?) and divers lady down the girlies severe attacks, in one case, because her hair gets caught in a chain. “- Kyle Smith, New York Post
The Final Word “The last element that makes” Sanctum “more than just a moment silent cinema is not fatal dialogue, the sense of authenticity, you believe that’s the way it went every piece of equipment. So real and what people seem to react real (which does not mean it is always smart). At one extreme are those cable TV shows that slyly document stories survival lunatics, while the other is Jon Krakauer engage, thinks “Into Thin Air.” Sanctum is located in the middle of these – sinister enough to entertain but specific enough to feel like you might see some truth in True-ish, anyway “. – Devin Faraci, Badass Digest
