Into the Darkness
10 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before I write anything about the film, I'd like to mention I am partial to an explore occasionally. It is a great hobby and ties in with photography brilliantly! I was excited about watching this as you can imagine, there aren't many films about us!

This documentary keeps your attention and is not boring by any means. My problem with it, however, is that is focuses too much on the explorers' everyday lives. I know this was the point of it, so show they had normal lives, but it took up too much time for me. That aside, the documentary has several great explore scenes, in the US, UK, and France.

This film can be watched by someone who has never heard the term 'Urban Explorers' - a lot of the film is explorers talking about what motivates them.

Overall I enjoyed this film, even if in some parts it seemed a little irrelevant. If you are into UE, then this is a good film to see some great locations. If you are not familiar with UE this is a great introduction to it!

7/10
