It's actually a well-made, well-acted low-budget thriller that is more resonant than expected.

At the very least shows you how to make a smart, cheap little movie with only two actors, one main exterior set and no special effects.

It begins with energy, dulls in the middle stretches but redeems itself with a final destination that makes the trip feel worth it.

Fogler impresses with some brooding edge, but neither he nor the location photography is enough to recommend you join him on this doomed trip.

Mitchell and Carter never extend beyond the archetypes of Unhappy Family Man and Bitter Failed Artist. Nor do Duhamel and Fogler's inconsistent performances breathe life into their flat characters.

The howl of the desert wind and the unflagging hammer of the sun are the backdrop for every bad decision, lending them a plausibility they wouldn't have in comfort.

The movie becomes a survival tale and is more successful in its grueling, slightly crazed second half.
