It’s one of those terrible films that you continue to watch anyway because you’re interested in how it ends. The pacing was all off for me. I like films that tell its story non-linear but for me, the jumping back and forth between the submerged vehicle and a past timeline where nothing really happens was a bit jarring. It wasn’t good pacing. When the car scenes ended it was utterly boring. I didn’t really care about this other timeline.

The characters weren’t really developed or likeable so I didn’t care what happened to them. In films like this, you often find yourself rooting for one of the characters but for me, there wasn’t one in this film.

It’s not a film that you take seriously. If you’re with a group of friends and want to laugh at something then put this film on because it is honestly terrible. You can pick it to pieces.  Jonathan Bennett, who stars in the film, is the guy from Mean Girls and I’ve never seen him in anything other than Mean Girls so that was strange but it’s put me off him. I don’t feel like I’ll ever watch a film with him in again. I’ll stick to Mean Girls.

    Thanks for the warning. I watched a movie like that recently that was so bad I can’t even remember the name. I hate wasting time when I am waiting for something to happen and it never does. Urg. Thanks for the warning.
