Movie Info

On the road to a high-powered lunch meeting, smooth-talking ad man, Jackson Alder (Neil Hopkins), is brainstorming his next big pitch when he is blindsided by Mother Nature. Swallowed up by a devastating mudslide, he awakens to darkness. Alone underneath an avalanche of mud, his certainty of rescue gives way to a horrifying reality - no one is coming. With oxygen and time running out, Jackson clings to the unfinished life he left behind. Shedding his suit and surveying the limited tools he has at his disposal, Jackson refuses to go down without a fight. Pushing himself beyond his physical and mental boundaries, he must ask himself the ultimate question: What would you do to survive?

  • "Detour" does a fine job of giving drivers yet another reason to stress out, but that anxiety doesn't extend to its hero's fate.

  • At times the groan and scream of collapsing metal sounds so authentic you might mistake Jackson's heavy breathing for your own.

  • "Nothing to do but wait," Jackson says early on, in the hopes of a quick response from emergency services. That's sitting through "Detour" in a nutshell.

  • This taut and effective thriller produces maximum suspense with a minimum of means.

  • Dickerson passes on the occasion for existential drama and goes for the race-against-the-clock urgency of an ordinary guy trying to crawl out of his predicament. It's effective enough, but there isn't much to it.
