First-time director Ringan Ledwidge conjures up an effectively creepy mood to accompany three young backpackers on an ill-fated road trip across the Aussie desert.
...suffers from an egregiously laid-back pace that ultimately negates its few positive attributes...
Debut feature for tv commercials director Ringan Ledwidge shows he has an innate sense of cinema, and handles the genre well and the outback looks gritty but great
Solid direction and well shot visuals cannot overcome the inherent problems from the mixed performances, thin script, off-putting characterizations, and languished pacing
In the end, the script lets the film down with its obvious twists, its naggingly illogical narrative and a general pointlessness.

You may be able to work out where it's going, but it's an enjoyable ride nonetheless.

If only it had taken the characters' lead and strayed further from the beaten track...
