An intense and engrossing but ultimately very flawed film that's just passable enough for one viewing...

an allegorical commentary (from a non-American director) on the United States, all lost at sea and at odds with itself now that it is under the steerage of an incompetent and deceitful helmsman.

lot like, well, treading water

Adrift becomes exactly the sort of DTV sequel we so very often ignore.

February 19, 2007 Full Review Source:

Adrift has its moments but it's a frustrating film in many ways and doesn't really work as a thriller unless you're a confirmed hydrophobic. If people meeting unfortunate watery ends is your thing then rent Open Water instead.

Audience Reviews for Open Water 2 (Adrift)

Much better than the first one, this has characters you can relate to and drama you can understand. Sure, they didn't come up with some great ideas for trying to get back onto the boat, but you never know how you'll act in their position. The ending was annoying, but I can look past that.

A bunch of people you don't like, make stupid decisions and put themselves in a lot of trouble. Then they more bad decisions and it gets worse and then that douche from Grey's Anatomy cries. There are a couple of moments that are well done, but overall meh.

Pretty lame movie actually. Very boring.

I hate movies with stupid characters, and this movie is nothing, but stupid characters doing stupid things. The fact that they all forgot to put the ladder down, was just so dumb. Then the fact that the main problem in the movie was them trying to figure out how to get back into the boat, was even dumber.

There's nothing I love more than watching a bunch of idiots try to get back onto a boat. They had some smart plans like using the inflatable whale, and tying their swimsuits together to make a rope. However the stupidity kicked in, when the only people trying to execute those plans were muscular, grown men. There's two functioning, slim women treading water right next to you, why on earth would you expect a rope made out of swimsuits or an inflatable whale to hold your weight??

The whole movie was pretty pointless. The lack of sharks was really disappointing also. The movie is pretty much about a bunch of people who tread water for days then complain about it. People get hurt and die, but not in very exciting ways. It's a huge letdown.

It?s not really open water 2, the production company only said it was because Open water was really good and this is shit. It?s a huge shame really because It?s such a brilliant, yet simple premise. A half descent writer could have made this film into a classic thriller, shit, I could have, my goldfish could have. I don't actually have a goldfish, but you get what I'm saying.
I wanted them all to die horribly and a lack of sharks was disappointing. Eric Dane is rapidly becoming my least favourite actor of all time. Adrift, annoying, like a crap that refuses to flush!
