The film has a really good and exciting concept but it doesn’t really deliver. It’s not a terrible film but it’s not the best, it’s just damn right weird. It’s all about a group of people being stranded on an island because their plane crashed. They have a limited amount of resources and so they end up turning on each other. In the real world, in a situation like that, you’d expect people to turn on each other and have fights but this film takes it to the extreme. They end up killing each other, there is also, almost, a rape scene. It just all felt very bizarre. Entertaining, but bizarre.

I was so surprised to see Sung Kang in this film, he is the guy who plays Han in the Fast and Furious franchise. I have only ever seen him in those films so it was weird seeing him in something else. I do prefer him with longer hair though, it was odd seeing him with short hair in this film.


The only reason you have to continue watching is because you just want to know how it’s going to end. Who is going to survive? That’s the only reason I continued watching. It’s not really boring either because there are some really shocking scenes and that’s what makes it bearable.

A weird survival thriller!
