Technically proficient, but clumsily scripted

"This cave will kill you in a heartbeat."

If done right, a "man versus nature" disaster picture can effectively get the pulse pounding. Couple the sheer implacability of the antagonist with the difficulties of survival and a situation that's direr than that of a traditional thriller, and the result is usually an involving feature. 2011's Sanctum is a serviceable instance of an effec... read more

[SPOILERS]
Filme chato, manjado, cheio de clichês como o cara moreno, o mexicano, a gostosa e o ricão morrerem, o 3D não vinga (na verdade, pessoalmente, odeio 3D) e além de tudo é longo. A história inova um pouco por ser numa caverna, mas na verdade é tudo a mesma sequência de aventuras e sustos bobos. Não gaste seu dinheiro.

The special effects were good but everything else was awful. For starters the acting was terrible and the characters were boring and uninteresting especially that girl who was extremely annoying and the whole movie I kept yelling "just die already!" SPOILER SKIP TO NEXT PARAGRAPH!!!! When she did die I was so satisfied and happy!!

The dialogue was another problem, it was so stupid. H... read more

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E3 - March 2012 (28 movies items)

" Blockbuster eye candy with hardly any surprises. Ignore the hype that this film is 'based on a true story' as it is yet another father-son coming of age film in the face of adversity. A disappointing bore of a film that could only been seen as impressive if seen in 3-D or whatever else new technology Hollywood is shilling out this year."

2011 Movies I've Seen (97 movies items)

"This movie is a boring well-shot mess that aims to cash in on the 3D trend and capitalize on James Cameron's name, even though he is only credited as Executive Producer while having little input in the final product, and it shows. The characters are as hollow as the casm these idiots are stuck in and the story is formulaic and dull. Skip this one. C-"

Movies I've Seen In 3-D... (68 movies items)

"Viewed in Standard (non-IMAX) Cinema 3-D Meh... It was real 3-D and the director did a good job making an underwater 3-D movie, but it's not one of the best uses of the format."

SJMJ91 posted a review 3 years, 7 months ago

Good fun that was beautifully filmed. That's all.

“Many times over the years, we have seen films involving underwater adventures jumbled with disasters and chaos along the way from the likes of The Abyss, The Poseidon Adventure, it's remake Poseidon, possibly Titanic amongst others. It is safe to say that these films perhaps aren't for the faint hearted and definitely aren't the greatest kinds of films to have been made. However, the fact that the film had been filmed and scheduled for release in 3D actually made the 3D not seem pointless for a change since Avatar's release in December 2009.

The film itself has a very corny and predictable dialogue, but the 3D experience would have been beyond words! Being one who never actually saw it in 3D or at the cinema, I now take it with deep regret that I hadn't considered seeing Sanctum ” read more

2011 In Film - Best to Worst. (74 movies items)

" One sentence review: Having said that James Cameron was one of the producers and Sanctum was filmed beautifully, is a must-see in 3D and blu-ray and still a good bit of fun all around, but it still remains incredibly corny as far as script, characters and acting are concerned. FULL REVIEW HERE."

Horror movies I survived (more or less) (25 movies items)

""Based on a true story" This movie is actually more a survival movie, but some scenes, which were pretty disgusting, qualified it as "horror" to me. It is about the exploration of a giant cave with its many veins never touched by any human before. Frank is the leader of the team, he brought his son Josh whom he inherited the passion for caves. The adventure soon gets dangerous - heavy rain is starting to fall... "

SPOILER SKIP TO NEXT PARAGRAPH!!!! When she did die I was so satisfied and happy!!

The dialogue was another problem, it was so stupid. Half of the lines that came out of the characters made no sense and were completely unnecessary. Plus at some points in the beginning of the movie it tried to be funny but it wasn't because the jokes were so dumb. The story is based on a true story but it's so horribly told here. It was uninteresting and the pacing was terrible. I know I've been saying a lot of negative things about this movie but ther” read more

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"May 21 James Cameron has production credits in this deep-sea survival story and it shows in the production. The last remaining unexplored mega cave somewhere in Papua New Guinea is the frontier of the story in which Richard Roxburgh and Ian Grouffund? must conquer and overcome. Plenty of action, near escapes, and hair-raising misfortunes. Though characters are textbook, they only play second fiddle to the wondrous if phobic caverns. "
