Director, Alister Grierson, directed a claustrophobic underwater thriller, about the dangers and beauties of exploring underwater caves. James Cameron (The Terminator, Aliens, Titanic) produces this film, and you can tell his involvement in the movie. This film is intense, gritty, realistic, and thrilling. Loved this movie!

La trama piena di cliché e personaggi approssimativi non aiuta di certo un film che fa una enorme fatica a trasmettere emozioni. Oltre ad essere pessimo per quanto riguarda la sceneggiatura, Sanctum presenta anche degli effetti speciali piuttosto scadenti con ambientazioni e luci irrealistiche. Viste le premesse il risultato poteva essere decisamente più interessante, ma così come stanno le cose sarà certamente un film che mi dimenticherò molto in fretta.

"Sanctum" adalah sebuah film yang tidak hanya menawarkan sebuah petualangan yang mencekam, tetapi dibalut dengan drama yang tragis, dan pemandangan latar yang sangat indah.

Very surprising film. Was expecting just a bunch of guys underwater but instead we got a realistic, tense thriller set in around underground caves. God knows why James Cameron has his name all over it considering he didn't direct or produce it! Very enjoyable, although Ioan Gruffudd's American accent is too over the top for me... as bad as Ewan McGregors! That aside, good film!

Cool movie, terrible acting.

This film has some amazing visual effects, but the script is quite banal and filled with trite characters.
However, despite being predictable, Sanctum manages to achieve a certain level of enjoyment thanks to its striking photography.

Si me gustó, pero hay partes aburridas, no sentí conexión con los personajes, hay muchas cosas pasadas que lo encontrà (C) sentido y la evolución de la relación entre Richard Roxburgh y Rhys Wakefield la sentí forzada.

While most others didn't like it I thought the movie was really suspenseful and claustrophobic. Could have skipped some cliches about characters, though. Worthwile to watch if you really like realistic adventure movies.

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.

A movie so beautifully made, but with catastrophic performances.

An embarrassment for James Cameron (who didn't have much power considering he was executive producer), Sanctum has a purpose and a premise, but fails to execute it correctly

This movie SUCKED. From beginning to end I wanted to walk out but I was with other people so I didn't.

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.
