Quite interesting
4 January 2021 | by wiacSee all my reviews

The movie isn't as bad as they write in the press commentaries. The plot is interesting and the ending is quite well-considered. I also liked the soundtrack by Alexander Desplat. I agree that this movie is the connection of "Gravity" and "The Revenant". It is not as great as any of these movies, but nevertheless it is worthy of watching. It is wise and well-directed.
