Wonderful start.

I'm not a film maker i'm just the audience So I'm not going to go into great detail regarding technicals or accuracy regarding the process of making this film.

This film had a great premise: Three geocaching (google it) adventurers who find themselves on a kind of GPS-oriented scavenger hunt. Each find directs them to clues to a new location to explore. The anonymous internet provider of this adventure promises it will be "unforgettable"

This game seems to be appealing to the 21st century day-adventurer. But in this film the stakes are a bit higher as they discover the sister of one of the adventurers is in extreme danger complete with a deadline of 7pm the following day- the time of her demise. In order to save her they have to jump through the hoops of the geocaching which ultimately implies the final clue will lead them to her.

Good, fun thrilling stuff, right?

And it basically is, on the surface. There's wonderful locations and the audience is regularly reminded of the ticking clock without it being cumbersome. But it has some severe flaws.

First was the casting. Noting that this is an Indie, one cannot help but notice the main actors have very little in the way of acting chops. Their performances are bland and stunted for the most part.

Secondly was with regard to the ticking clock: they never indicated a sense of urgency as time was running out. Their behavior in the final three hours was as relaxed as the first three hours of the adventure. Never did I get the sense of panic or urgency from them.

Next was the lack of adventure. The film would have greatly benefited from more daring and interesting scenarios, rather than simple hiking and climbing. There were some light threats along the way but nothing even remotely thrilling. Indiana Jones taking a nap seemed more exciting.

Overall, I LOVE the premise. It has great potential in the right hands (and budget?) and could easily become a favored and critically recognized thriller/adventure film. I hope it gains little to no audience so that the creators of this film can use it as a demo to sell the idea to investors to create a much larger production of the film.

With some rewrites, better actors/director, more focus on the escalation and emotions that come with a ticking clock and augmenting it with bigger threats, spills and thrills this could be a home run.

I see others have rated this pretty low and that's understandable. As a film it is severely lacking in many areas.

I give it 5/10 stars because I see the promise in this film and hope that those who made it happen can create some movie magic with, what I consider a moving storyboard of a film that still needs to be made.

I say watch it and you'll see what I mean. It's not a bad movie- just a badly made one.
