  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    "Wrecked" starts with a man(Adrien Brody, who I had more respect for before he started doing commercials) waking up in a crashed automobile in the middle of the woods with a broken leg and absolutely no memory of who he is or how he got there. If you think that's bad, check out the dead guy in the back seat. Soon, he knows there is such a thing as a fate worse than death, when he gets the car radio working, which may soon become a serious regard, considering the lack of food and water. But then help may not be as far away as he once feared... Minimalist as it is, "Wrecked" aims to be a suspenseful story of survival but instead settles to be little more than an actor's exercise. But if you're going to have one of those, it is best to have an actor like Adrien Brody who is always interesting to watch. Since the movie is so obsessed with playing mind games, it is more than a little tough what to make of the character at times, and therefore how much we should care about him. And the movie's solution is not so much deduced, as it is revealed, with a little lack of logic and a couple of lessons learned in the end.

    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.

    Mystery, yes... horror and suspense, not so much. Very slow, moody and mind-trippy with little dialog but, I'm sure, frustrating for any survivalist to watch.
