Audience Reviews for Nine Miles Down

  • May 25, 2013
    Mediocre thriller that really fails to entertain, Nine Miles Down is a film that should have been much better than what it turned out to be. The film started off well enough, but the film quickly ran out of steam and ended up being a dull, predictable affair that ended up being quite boring and uninteresting. The script is underdeveloped and lacks anything really interesting. The cast are bland and don't offer anything interesting to the film. I think that's a shame because this one really could have been great. Unfortunately, it fails to be entertaining or memorable for the viewer. This film lacks in many respects and should have reworked significantly before being green lit. This is just a thriller that ends up lacking in terms of thrills and ideas that should have worked. This film ends up being a waste of time with nothing really entertaining or memorable. I really wanted to enjoy the film, but it just failed to be any good. The result is a mediocre movie that leaves a lot to be desired and you are simply disappointed by the time the credits roll. Nine Miles Down is a movie that is boring and pointless; it really isn't worth your time. If you're looking for something good here, you'll be disappointed. This film is flawed and could have been much better. Skip out on Nine Miles Down, you'll be glad you did. The one just doesn't deliver on its premise and it's a mess due to a lazy cast and direction. This film was a letdown and I expected much more.

At last check, a drilling team was attempting to drill below the earth's crust, where they may have released something. Something awful! COMMENTS: Themes of madness, duplicity, repetition, and ambiguity between fantasy and reality bolster this surprisingly good treatment of a familiar plot. Desolate Tunisian desert locations accentuate the film, and a fresh, thoughtful ending, with some neat twists and effects distinguishes Nine Miles Down from average attempts at the genre. This movie was written by horror vet screenwriter, Everett De Roche who is fast becoming a favorite of mine. For those familiar with Aussie horror cinema over the years, he has brought us, among others, Patrick (1978), Harlequien (1980), Road Games (1981), Razorback, (1984), The Long Weekend (1978) and it's reshoot, Nature's Grave (2008), reviewed here a few weeks ago. All of these are unusual and offbeat movies, examples of some of the better horror films to come out of the outback. The Nine Miles Down story device is the old, 'investigator ventures to a remote location where something terrible left no survivors and may still be lurking' routine. It's a twist on Joseph Conrad's Heart Of Darkness. In this case, the seeker is a security consultant, and the target is a desolate oil drilling site way, way out in the wilderness. When the consultant arrives, there's nobody around. As for what may have transpired, think Event Horizon, Dead Calm, The Thing, etc. Yes, something heavy and creepy definitely went down this hastily abandoned geological research station and it's going to be security specialist Thomas Jackman's (Paul) ordeal to discover what. A scene of carnage greets him, one of those scenarios where everyone went crazy and reverted to the trees. (Picture those parodies of the infrastructure suddenly disintegrating, and the next thing you know, bonfires have been built and respectable business people are running around hooting at each other and and clutching severed heads by the scalps) OK, maybe it's not quite that bad, but something clearly scared the hell out of all the scientists. Obviously they all went nuts. They are all gone, buzzards are showing a peculiar interest in the cess pit, and there are signs that degenerate nastiness preceded the evacuation. <div style="width:300px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/nine-miles-down-14007117"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/14/00/71/14007117_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> An unlikely scenario ensues, in which his superiors order Thomas ordered to remain on site, yet he receives no immediate backup. Then he discovers flippant Dr. Kat (Douge), a 24 year old, blonde bubblehead, triple Ph.D. with a lot of cleavage. She is the lone survivor at the complex. She's been there all along, keeping a low profile. Why? I groaned at this point and nearly turned the movie off in disgust. No! Not this cliché again! But some quality of Nine Miles Down made me want to stick with it, and I'm glad I did. The filmmakers are going somewhere with this idea, and while the movie is not something so clever that it compels one to write down the title in order to tell the grand-kids about it, Nine Miles Down turns out to be a unique and worthwhile horror film. It's pretty good! And it's different. It;s not what you might expect. Not only does the premise receive a novel treatment, but several abrupt plot twists keep us guessing. When Jackman begins to investigate what happened at the drilling installation, creepy occurrences start all over again. As he digs deeper, frightening visions leave him struggling to keep a tenuous hold on his slipping objectivity. The mysterious Dr. Kat may not be telling him everything she knows. Or is she? Is she trying to guide Jackman in his investigation, or beguile him? Jackman finds himself in a puzzling, self-referential paradox in which he cannot separate fantasy from reality. The plot becomes non-linear This provides the film with an arty complexity, and throw us into Jackman's subjective, willy-nilly world of confusion. On one side of Jackman lies infinity and bedlam. On the other, deliverance. But which is which? With the story presented from Jackman's perspective, grave doubts arise regarding both his sanity, and the dodgy Kat's veracity. Is there something she's not telling him about the mysterious disaster? What happened to the scientists and crew, and why is everyone else gone but her? And just what did the drilling team find under the earth's crust? (Scary music please!) The answer may lie somewhere within Jackman himself, but can he discover what it is before hallucinations drive him completely mad? <div style="width:300px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/nine-miles-down-14007115"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/14/00/71/14007115_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a></div></div> <div style="width:120px;font-size:10px;text-align:center;"></div><a href="http://www.flixster.com/videos?videoId=11144619"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/drPGaj4obyQ/0.jpg" border="0" /></a><div style="font-size:10px;width:120px;text-align:center;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"><I>Nine Miles Down</I></a> - trailer</div>
