Open Water 2 (Adrift) Reviews
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.
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!
Though it does stretch out too long, for what it is. There's only so much time you can watch people float around in water, and wonder if there going to survive. But, for what they had to work with - I dont see why its getting such bad ratings.
It's worth watching and provides some intense moments to kill out a day of boredom.
I mean come on, is someone stupid enough to forget letting down the ladder before jumping off, when clearly, no one is on the yacht to let the ladder down except the baby?! Mind you, the child is only a few months old >_< So they're all stuck out in the ocean beside the ladder-less yacht. HOW RETARDED IS THAT?!
I kept sighing and having facial spasms due to how ridiculous the situation all was. However, I found this quite enertaining and unlike most films out there. Well is someone an idiot enough to make a film out of this? Apparently so. And it actually works!
My only criticism is the acting which definitely needs some polishing. And maybe how the story unfolds since everything just descends into stupidity. But then again, it's the whole beauty of this film :P
Watch immediately and laugh your life away!
They also panic and then act like a "chicken without a head". Being calm and cool is a major plus, to get out of a jam. What I still figure, is how they managed to be in the middle of the ocean without meeting any sharks. Jaws, this isn't. Nothing to rave about, here.
