The 3-D action-thriller Sanctum follows a team of underwater cave divers on a treacherous expedition to the largest, most beautiful and least accessible cave system on Earth. When a tropical storm forces them deep into the caverns, they must fight raging water, deadly terrain and creeping panic as they search for an unknown escape route to the sea. Master diver Frank McGuire has explored the South Pacific's Esa-ala Caves for months. But when his exit is cut off in a flash flood, Frank's team-including 17-year-old son Josh and financier Carl Hurley are forced to radically alter plans. With dwindling supplies, the crew must navigate an underwater labyrinth to make it out. Soon, they are confronted with the unavoidable question: Can they survive, or will they be trapped forever?

In an unfortunate coincidence, Agnes Milowka, one of the film's diving doubles, drowned after running out of air shortly after the film was released. See more »
When Victoria lands, gets off the seaplane and walks to the helicopter she is wearing blue jeans and a white pull-over top that has 2-3 buttons at the top like a regular shirt, it has button flaps on the arms for rolling up the sleeves and she has a white bra on underneath. They all get into the helicopter and it appears to take off immediately, but the very next shot of her shows her top has changed to a full button-down shirt, left unbuttoned with a white halter top underneath and a white bra. She could not have changed all those tops with the helicopters seatbelt/shoulder harness on. See more »
Josh? Wow, your old man let you come up for air?
Oh you're kidding, Dex.
Oh you're gonna be in the shit.

It makes me embarrassed to be an Australian. One of the worst scripts ever written. Even great actors like Richard Roxburgh weren't able to save this one. It started off well, with some great aerial photography, but soon went downhill with corny one-liners and awkward so called 'action' sequences. It amazes me how the characters could endure such trauma (being trapped in a cave with their friends and family dying), yet still manage to have poignant moments of reflection while trapped in crevices less than one metre wide. That actor from Fantastic Four (whatever his name is) will probably never work in the film industry again. His performance was more comedic than convincing. Help!!!!
