Movie Info

Adrien Brody stars as a man who awakens in a mangled car-wreck at the bottom of a steep cliff. Injured and trapped inside, with no memory of how he got there or who he is, he must rely on his most primal instincts to survive. But as he attempts to free himself from the carnage and escape an impossible situation, a darker side is revealed. Even if he manages to survive, the man may have to face the horrible consequences of an earlier, forgotten life. -- (C) IFC

  • Asked to convey a wide spectrum of emotional tones like confusion, shock, sadness, anger and oh, look out for the mountain lion, Brody does all he can to hold the screen.

  • Adrien Brody once again proves he's got enough onscreen appeal to carry a decent thriller.

  • It's a tribute to Adrien Brody that Wrecked works as a modestly compelling thriller, since there's almost nothing to see but Brody himself.

  • In all those empty blockbusters, the big screen swells pointlessly; at least in these narrow spaces it shrinks with a real purpose. Far better the tight squeeze than the big bloat.

  • Secured by Brody's committed performance, the feature-length debut of director Michael Greenspan has the stable definition of a one-act play, and only falls apart when the plot starts to repeat itself

  • It might not be James Franco's tour de force in the higher-profile "127 Hours," but Oscar winner Adrien Brody makes a meal of his seriously injured character.

Audience Reviews for Wrecked


Adrien Brody awakens battered and bloody, trapped in a car wreck on an isolated mountainside with no memory of who he is or how he got there. In a similar vein to 127 Hours and Buried, Wrecked is very much a one man show as Brody is essentially alone for the vast majority of the film. Being a fan of his though, I don't have a problem with this idea but the initially intriguing crime thriller premise hinting at a shady past and potential vengeance-based drama never materialises. Instead we have Adrien Brody stuck in a car for half an hour, followed by Adrien Brody crawling through some woods for a further hour, and that's pretty much it. More a wilderness survival drama than crime thriller, Wrecked is well acted and nicely shot in some attractive locations but the pay off at the end when you discover what happened is just not strong enough to make for a satisfying experience. There's not a lot wrong with it; it's just a little too insubstantial.

It`s well-crafted and mind-bending at times but dose not really satisfy or intrigue as it should. Theres no real bare bones to the piece and looks to be more man vs. nature than vs. self. Brody does give a good performance with what he has, not one of hise best performances but not his worst either.

3 3/4's stars actually...Apparently not for everyone. This film, to me, is a classic example of a good story with outstanding acting that makes for a good viewing experience. No need for expensive special effects when the delivery is so well done. Adrien Brody has become a favorite actor of mine, and this film is a very good example why...he is wonderful. This is a movie with a simple story, and enough ambiguity, to keep you watching all the way to the end. The fact that you don't know how it will end, till it ends, makes it worth while...

Cast: Adrien Brody, Caroline Dhavernas, Ryan Robbins, Adrian Holmes, Adrian Hughes, Lloyd Adams, Mark McConchie, Jacob Blair Director: Michael Greenspan Summary: Adrien Brody stars as a man who wakes up trapped in a crashed automobile in a steep wilderness ravine, injured and clueless with no hope of rescue. As the man struggles to survive, he slowly remembers the events that put him there. My Thoughts: "The opening scene grips you and you want to stay and finish it till the end to see just what really happened. Now usually a movie like this might come off boring and uninteresting. But that is why it takes a genius actor like Adrien Brody to pull this movie and character off. Some scenes are pretty gruesome. Especially the scenes involving the mountain lion. But the movie takes you in and out of mirages and flash backs to his life, or what he thinks was his life. Slowly his memory comes back and the real story unfolds. Not a great film, but not a horrible one either. Worth watching at least once if you get the chance."
