While on holiday in Cambodia, two couples partake in all the traditional tourist attractions the impoverished country has to offer.
While on holiday in Cambodia, two couples, Dave and Alice Flannery
(Joel Edgerton and Felicity Price) and Steph McKinney and Jeremy King
(Teresa Palmer and Antony Starr), partake in all the traditional
tourist attractions the impoverished country has to offer, but after
attending an underground dance party, Jeremy unexpectedly disappears
and a dark secret is buried within the circle of friends. What starts
out like a third chapter in "The Hangover" franchise quickly morphs
into a simple and dismal story of betrayal that drags its feet through
the first two acts, only to conclude on an intriguing high note.
However, the compelling conclusion only leaves an irritating
aftertaste, since the journey certainly isn't worth the pay off.
Director Kieran Darcy-Smith neglects his characters' foundations and
significance to such a degree that viewers have little to invest in. In
turn, everyone's wavering fates are insignificant and disposable. In
the same fashion of the story, Edgerton and Price float through the
film without devoting too much into their characters, but once the
finale comes into play, they immediately switch gears and display their
true acting abilities.
