After a harrowing snowmobile accident, a young couple is stranded in the woods and must survive while waiting for help to arrive. Events take a turn for the worse after the disappearance of Emma's boyfriend, leaving her on her own not only to battle the elements, but also to elude a mysterious hunter who is tracking her through the forest.

I thought this is going to be a generic, boring film that I have seen hundreds of times. But, it was actually pretty good. Not amazing or anything, but a lot better what I expected. The problem I had was that it was a bit boring at times and some, kinda dumb moments. Also typical stuff like the characters are bland and not interesting and I'm not a huge fan of this kind of story. It's not a "story" it's a situation, and to me that's kinda lame-ish. I mean, some effort on putting a story. The Descent could have been a "situation" movie, but instead, the writer actually wrote a story with real characters. BTW, The Descent was pretty good IMO. Anyway, that's my only real problem though... The actors did a decent job, not amazing but were likable, if a bit boring at times. Still, they had some good lines and funny moments were believable enough. Also I love that there is no real villain in the movie. I mean the wolfs, I guess are the villains, but that would be stretching the idea of a villain. They are stuck, simply as that. They'r not fighting anybody, except them freezing to death. It's kinda refreshing. And the ending is kinda satisfying. And the characters are kinda likable, so you will root for them. Also what I like about is how grounded on reality it is. Again, this is a situation you could be in. And the script tries to be as realistic as possibly, but fails at times. It has to throw something interesting on the screen, but we all know that if you were in that position, you would just stay in there. Don't act like you wouldn't!
Anyway, it's a decent flick. Not perfect, it has it's flaws, but it's surprisingly entertaining and grounded, that I liked it.
