An adventurous look into how 2 friends survive together
31 January 2004 | by (Mono, Ontario - Canada) – See all my reviews

A well produced film in which survival and learning how to co-operate with each other in such harsh circumstances is the main theme here. It was amazing to see Jamie and Awasin work well together to survive against the elements the way they did. Sure, they both thought that they weren't going to make it out alive and it was hard to withstand all that. But when it all came down to it they both came through when they had to and as it turned out, they made it back to the cabin alive and well. However I think things would have been a lot different if they couldn't co-operate in the harsh environment together. Fortunately they came through despite the fact that they panicked most of the time.

But........ anyways........ that's the reason why I gave this film a 7 out of 10.
