Sanctum Reviews

While Sanctum isn't a great film, it's enjoyable for the thrilling element.

Mixed in with flat characters and tense action is an incredible 3D visual component - which is where Cameron's involvement in the project is most apparent.

CinemaDope

Too bad this film, executive produced by Cameron, is rated R for profanity and gruesome makeup effects. I'm betting it's every 13-year-old's dream escape.

Triple J

A great survival action movie where none of the cast should've been allowed to talk. The script is cliched. Roxburgh is essentially playing Bob Hawke underwater while Ioan Gruffud is inexplicably channeling De Niro.

Fan The Fire

Its flaws are initially off-putting, but stick with it and Sanctum does do a good job of establishing tension and comes with some well-staged set pieces.

For the best part, the actors shut their mouths and the story becomes far more action based.

Shared Darkness

Director Alister Grierson nicely juggles the requirements of confined space adventure with the movie's somewhat more pedestrian human drama. No need for a 3-D presentation, though.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A brawny adventure-disaster film notable for its reliance on dangerous practical effects and stuntwork rather than CGI.

Despite the lapses in dialogue, what never flagged was the magnificence of the photography and in the end, it is those breathtaking images the left the deepest impression.

Daily Express

The action doesn't quite conjure up the claustrophobic intensity you expect but the father-son-storyline is sufficiently muscular.

Film Blather

Undergirding the cheesy dramatics here is an intense, fiercely technical adventure movie, one obsessed with the unpleasant realities of being trapped in a waterlogged cave.

A film of modest ambition that mostly lives up to the low bar it sets for itself.

After a sluggish half hour, this well-crafted adventure kicks into high gear and never lets up.

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

Pity about the characters: the script gives them little in the way of individuality. Down there, and up-close, you need more than archetypes. Still, a tense and spectacular film.

Workmanlike suspenser, with plenty of cold water but sparse chills. When it comes to James Cameron scuba thrillers, The Abyss still has the edge.

If the 3D is passable and there are some moments of tension, Sanctum has big problems.

What Would Toto Watch?

Silly, soggy but certainly suspenseful, Sanctum is a B-movie pick-me-up.

Times-Picayune

Aside from the cast of archetypes and the dash of confusion generated by some less than smooth editing during the film's crisis scenes, Sanctum is fairly entertaining.
