"first 30 minutes are as scary as anything I've seen in recent months. Director Greenspan, shooting in British Columbia, does a terrific job of sustaining Brody's restricted point-of-view ...
| Original Score: 3/4
Asked to convey a wide spectrum of emotional tones like confusion, shock, sadness, anger and oh, look out for the mountain lion, Brody does all he can to hold the screen.
| Original Score: 3/5
Outstanding work for a first feature.
Adrien Brody once again proves he's got enough onscreen appeal to carry a decent thriller.
Initially intense and suspenseful before tedium arrives. Adrien Brody delivers a captivating performance.
| Original Score: 6.02121/10
It's a tribute to Adrien Brody that Wrecked works as a modestly compelling thriller, since there's almost nothing to see but Brody himself.
In all those empty blockbusters, the big screen swells pointlessly; at least in these narrow spaces it shrinks with a real purpose. Far better the tight squeeze than the big bloat.
| Original Score: 3/4
It might not be James Franco's tour de force in the higher-profile "127 Hours," but Oscar winner Adrien Brody makes a meal of his seriously injured character.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The 91-minute film builds tension steadily and despite the single set -- if you can think of the wilderness as a single set -- it is visually inventive so the man's ordeal never grows tedious.
Because it's so carefully parceled out and so evocatively framed, Wrecked is an absorbing ordeal, perhaps less for its survival narrative than its metaphoric heft.
Suspenseful, beautifully rendered, and capable of keeping the viewer on the edge of their seat...
| Original Score: 3.5/5
For first-time director Michael Greenspan, Wrecked stands as a future calling card to show just how much intrigue and audience involvement he can rile up with such a minimalist plot.
...Wrecked makes its audience suffer along with its amnesiac protagonist. It's often boring and more than occasionally repetitive, dragging like the character's lame leg through the woods...
| Original Score: C-
Will cause you to tap your foot impatiently, waiting for something to happen. You will wait an awfully long time.
| Original Score: D+
Wrecked, like bowling, is one of those enterprises that seems more interesting to participate in than it is to watch.
| Original Score: 5/10
If the idea of watching Adrien Brody wiggle and whine his way through a forest sounds thrilling, meet your new favorite film.
| Original Score: 2/5
Brody is as convincing as the script allows, and he deserves points for powering such a low-budget exercise. But the final product can only be rated partially successful.
Wrecked is definitely in the running for one award: thinnest plot stretched to feature length.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A character study sans a character. Oops. It might have worked as a short but as a feature, we're left wandering around the woods, stranded, starving for a story.
| Original Score: 4/10
Secured by Brody's committed performance, the feature-length debut of director Michael Greenspan has the stable definition of a one-act play, and only falls apart when the plot starts to repeat itself
