...Wrecked makes its audience suffer along with its amnesiac protagonist. It's often boring and more than occasionally repetitive, dragging like the character's lame leg through the woods...

Will cause you to tap your foot impatiently, waiting for something to happen. You will wait an awfully long time.

A sterilized psychological thriller that brings to mind films like Brad Anderson's The Machinist but fails to achieve that level of ambiguous magnetism.

If the idea of watching Adrien Brody wiggle and whine his way through a forest sounds thrilling, meet your new favorite film.

A character study sans a character. Oops. It might have worked as a short but as a feature, we're left wandering around the woods, stranded, starving for a story.

A hollow genre variation on 127 Hours.

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

Wrecked, like bowling, is one of those enterprises that seems more interesting to participate in than it is to watch.

As much as you want Wrecked to work because Brody is that good, it starts to drag and some may soon be sneaking peeks at their watches.

...a relatively decent short that's been ungainly padded out to feature length.

"Wrecked" is mostly free of dialogue - and, unfortunately, suspense.

Ultimately crashes from lack of story. Brody's tenacity in his Sisyphus-like mission isn't enough to save it.

Wrecked is definitely in the running for one award: thinnest plot stretched to feature length.

Brody is as convincing as the script allows, and he deserves points for powering such a low-budget exercise. But the final product can only be rated partially successful.

The 91-minute film builds tension steadily and despite the single set -- if you can think of the wilderness as a single set -- it is visually inventive so the man's ordeal never grows tedious.

Initially intense and suspenseful before tedium arrives. Adrien Brody delivers a captivating performance.

Suspenseful, beautifully rendered, and capable of keeping the viewer on the edge of their seat...

Because it's so carefully parceled out and so evocatively framed, Wrecked is an absorbing ordeal, perhaps less for its survival narrative than its metaphoric heft.

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.

"first 30 minutes are as scary as anything I've seen in recent months. Director Greenspan, shooting in British Columbia, does a terrific job of sustaining Brody's restricted point-of-view ...
