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.

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

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.

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.

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.
