Disappointing
8 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Adrift really ought to sail away and never return. When I first watched this a few years ago now, I thought to myself how can a well known Hollywood actress like Kate Jackson even contemplate accepting a role in such drivel? The suspense IS there in Adrift, and we can certainly believe that we do not know what is going to happen, no matter how hard we try and guess, but the cheap and 'cheerful' image Adrift gives out lets the side down. This film is basically a low budgeted version of the 1988 thriller Dead Calm, but the sense of loneliness and eeriness in that film never materialises in Adrift, and viewers will always realise the limit in budget and the weak unpretentious script.
