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?

Production designer Nicholas McCallum built the caves in concrete, so that they wouldn't move while the actors were climbing them, and so that they could be reused for underwater scenes. Once scenes with one setting were wrapped, the cave parts would be put in a water tank for the diving scenes. See more »

All that was left was for someone to say 'crikey' !!
oh dear ! this was so embarrassing. There was nothing about this movie that could save it from drowning. Well, no that's not right, the fly over in the helicopter was grand. Seriously though, how could the producers have thought that this dud could possibly have success. The casting was appalling, but mind you, I don't believe whoever they got to play the parts would have made any difference. The clichés, were cringe worthy. Seriously, we were waiting for someone to utter 'crikey' but it mercifully didn't happen, but we were ready with the rotten tomatoes if they did. The pace was so erratic. Rhys Wakefield was so annoying with his half little smile being irritatingly inappropriate at times. They all seemed like they escaped from a loony bin... from seemingly adventurous explorers to phobics or deranged psychopaths. Great team to have when going down a cave!
What was suspicious was how there was no hype or fanfare for this movie, It's almost like they decided lets just give it a go and if some schmucks pay to see it, then great, but if it doesn't work it will just sneak away into the background.
What a waste of money, and I will never get back that 120 minutes or so of my life....
