I was already settled down to buy the 3d movie, but then I read that it has 32 uses of the F word. My wife and i get so distracted by excessive language. We can handle four uses, which is what a pg-13 is. So sad.
Though it's held back by commonplace characters and lackluster dialogue, Sanctum is impressively shot and its double dose of claustro/hydrophobia make it an action-thriller that will have you holding your breath.
I think I was suppose to see this in 3d, which is a gimmick I don't really care for. Sure the cinematography is quite gorgeous as we explore the dangers of being trapped in a cave, but it doesn't make up for a predictable script and bland characters. Maybe going with the actual story this is based on whereas all of them survived would be more dramatic and entertaining.
Sanctum is a thriller adventure and survival movie about a group of explorers who goes to Papua New Guinea to discover unexplored cave systems and then an accident happens. This movie will surely made you ask about choices and judgement that is between hanging life and death. It will ask your morals on which is to choose and which is not. Actually, Sanctum, the title itself means free from intrusion. In this movie, Sanctum feels like how to be free from guilt of one's judgement and choices. I wish this movie would have a more resolve ending. It ended with an emotional drama because of tragedy yet it failed to be a compelling movie. It also didn't show a climax that will be memorable like putting a solution to the problems that occurred or do a rescue mission to have it ended with a good story. Yet it just simply ended plainly as a one-man survival movie.
Amazing and TWISTED!! WARNING!! Great movie and amazing plot but certain scenarios may traumatize you. Seriously James Cameron you are Awesome, so talented...no offense I will never watch this movie again...so disturbingly real. BUT it is a must see!!
a decently done cave adventure that falls short of being great do to some cheesy moments that just kill it's momentum. There are some tense moments and I'm sure if they dropped all the cussing it would have made a pg13 rating that would have justified the movie as a whole.
I don't know what all these idiot "critics" are talking about, but I for one thought it was a good movie and the actors were pretty good (what terrible acting???). Maybe I'm just not a big no-it-all film and actor critic, but all I know is that 12 hrs after watching the film, I'm still thinking about it... it was very thought provoking.
