I liked the movie Sol.
21 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect when I watched this movie but I was drawn into the plot from the first minute. The story revolves around teams of young people who are playing an galactic game called Sol. Teams of youths are transported to planets throughout the galaxy without knowing which planet they will land on and the winner is the first person to find our sun (Sol) in the night sky. Something goes wrong from the start and therein lies the story.

I'm not sure why the other reviewer found this movie to be so bad. It's a suspenseful story, with shades of The Lord of the Flies and Robinson Crusoe about it. It's not overflowing with exciting special effects and has a bit of a low budget feel to it, but the interplay of the characters is interesting and overall, I found the movie to be a thought-provoking and satisfying experience.
