Descent Reviews

  • Oct 24, 2018

    The Descent is as close to a masterpiece as they come, and in my humble opinion it certainly qualifies among the top ten finest horror film of the past twenty years or so. It is claustrophobic, visceral- there are bone splitting, blood oozing and vomit inducing scenes, certainly not for the fainthearted. But apart from all this the Descent contains something that every horror film should utilize- a good screenplay and characters one can relate to/side with. This is a tight film(literally and figuratively) and the characters are well drawn out. The acting is top notch and the fact that Neil Marshall went for quality but unknown faces works in the favor of the film.

    Ovaj film je svakako acquired taste, mislim tesko je naci nekog kome je pojam dobre zabave Luk Peri u ulozi profesora koji spasava svijet od unistenja. Ako jos uvijek citate ovaj tekst i niste pobjegli glavom bez obzira na pomen doticne osobe, napomenucu da se radi o standardnom filmu katastrofe - neka kompanija eksperimentise s nekim eksplozijama i time pomjeri nekakve (tektonske?) ploce i napravi belaj, tako da lava pocinje da izbija u ogromnim kolicinama i tome slicno. U maniru Armagedona (samo na Zemlji), ekipa se u nekom supermodernom vozilu (nalik na ono iz Nindza kornjaca) spusta 40 km pod zemlju i postavlja neke bombe i spasava stvar. Meni je ovde vrlo simpaticno bilo to sto su vojnici negativci, ali potpuno je neocekivano da najvece djubre bude Majkl Dorn (!)

    Even Luke Perry couldn't save this one! Sci-Fi channel does The Core! Laughable effects, showstring dudget and a flat cast...why bother? That's the afterthought of this movie.

    Oh God! My Eyes! This was the worst movie - NOT to be confused with the "The Descent" with the scary underground creatures and the spelunking spice girls. This had Luke Perry in it ... *shakes head* and i will NEVER EVER get that hour and a half back. Bad acting, terrible sets, woeful special effects, and even worst plot - think "The Core" and then give a hobo $10 to remake it, and THAT would be 100% better than this tripe. It was like watching a 50's sci-fi, but the fact that it was made in 2005 make what would be funny, just disgraceful. SHAME SHAME SHAME!

    A cheap THE CORE rip-off with the man Luke Perry leading a team of scientists journey to the center of the earth. Thoroughly forgettable stuff, and bargain basement special effects. Pass

    Like The Core, only not as good, which is saying a lot.
