A chartered cruise on a luxury yacht turns into a nightmare when it catches fire and a couple barely escapes to a seemingly deserted island. They have to survive the ordeal, but their personalities are not exactly matching.
It's a different kind of movie from the standard American movie format. Cruising on a chartered yacht isn't part of the American psyche as much as it is with the Europeans.
I'm into boats, so I kind of like this type of movie. The movie is beautifully produced even if the story is somewhat predictable. I watched it without expecting much, but I got more than I expected.
Luckily for them, the island has coconut trees, and they have water and food from them as well as fishes and lobsters from the reef.
Survival themed programs were popular when this movie was made, and it reminds me of watching Survivor or some other reality show, but the actors were lot better in this movie.
I kind of liked this movie, it wasn't as boring as some reviewers have mentioned. It's just a different kind of a story from the usual Hollywood adventure movies. I liked the scenery, and the island little bit made me wish that I was there.
