The new worst movie on my list :)
25 December 2014 | by (Washington D.C.) – See all my reviews

This is a completely pointless, sadistic and uninspiring movie. It is nothing close to the uplifting celebration of the human spirit, strength and persistence that the trailer promises. I have never written a review before but I just felt the need to share my awful experience. The story could have been told in much better and more inspiring way, bringing the emotional depth of the experiences, as oppose to portraying solely perpetual torture and suffering of the main character. I have seen more than 20 movies with "lost at sea" scenes, but this one had by far the worse. The highlight of the ridiculousness was when the people who were holding barely to life, caught a 200lbs shark with bare hands from their infallible raft. I also don't understand the need of the director to show one full hour of torture of the main character, without giving it any perspective build through dialogue or maybe self-refection. This movie replaces "Thinner" (1996) as the worst movie I have ever seen.
