Slow and boring! 2/10
4 March 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I really didn't enjoy this film! I found it extremely slow and the fact that there's hardly any dialogue, didn't help. There's no depth to the three main characters and the random events didn't suit the flow of the film. The acting is average from Bean, Yeoh and Krusiec but they did make the whole wilderness feel to the movie, seem real. The ending was also disappointing because I was expecting Bean to react to Yeoh's strange mentality. The concept wasn't bad, because I can't imagine how it would be for 2 women, stuck in the middle of nowhere in horrendous, freezing cold conditions, struggling to find food, could be and when Saiva (Michelle Yeoh) and Anja (Michelle Krusiec were fighting for Loki's (Sean Bean) affections, the movie became more weird as it went along. The rape scene was quite emotional and the murder scene towards the end was quite shocking but from an entertainment point of view, I really found it quite dull and boring. Disappointing!

Round-Up: Although Sean Bean has starred in some impressive movies and TV series like, The Game Of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Patriot Games, Goldeneye, Ronin, Troy, National Treasure, Flightplan, the Martian, Pixels and the hit TV series Sharpe, he still isn't highly rated in Hollywood, which is a shame because he really does deserve it. Personally I think that he has starred in more bad movies than good, which is why he makes some mediocre movies to stay in the limelight, until a bigger project comes along. With that aside, I think he's a good actor who can take on any challenge that is put to him, even though he seems to play the baddie most of the time. This movie was directed by, English born Asif Kapadia, who recently won an Oscar for the Amy documentary and also directed the highly rated Senna biopic. He's currently making another documentary about Maradona, which should be extremely interesting and I personally think that he should stick to biopics because this feature was quite terrible.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their drama/romance/crime movies starring Sean Bean, Michelle Yeoh and Michelle Krusiec. 2/10
