Audience Reviews for The Wreck
Aaron Lohr just about makes this movie. He plays the man trapped in the car, and is absolutely terrific, completely selling the movie?s most harrowing moments. The Wreck is a very simple, low-budget suspense piece, that works more often that not, and makes some creative decisions that are unexpected. Too often in these kinds of films (like Open Water, for example), a couple will spend a good portion of the running time screaming accusations at each other. In The Wreck, these people act like people?they bide their time with barely controlled patience and inner terror?showing affection to each other and attempting, at times, to lighten the situation. I appreciated Jones?s approach to this situation. It grounded the film in realism, which helps when things get a little shaky towards the end. A character from the beginning of the film shows up in the last act, but it doesn?t enitrely work because we simply didn?t get enough time with the guy at the beginning of the movie to care like we should.
