Christopher Atkins
3 November 2016 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

in the role of dr. Christiansen. this is one of the pillars of the film. then, the bodies of two Australian teenagers losted out of civilisation, different one by other, becoming parts of a seductive love story. and, sure, the end. risky but useful for save a teenager story who could be a large collection of clichés and stereotypes. so, a nice film. easy to criticize, not bad for the mixture of classic themes. and for the tricks. because it has the nice idea to conquest different categories of public. the nostalgic of The Blue Lagoon from 1980 for the presence in the cast of Christopher Atkins. the admirers of the sequel from 1991 for the beautiful new level of story. but the target remains the Facebook generation. and this is the motif to not ignore a film who reflects the spirit of a circle of young people who defines his identity step by step.
