A man awakens in a mangled car-wreck at the bottom of a steep cliff. Injured and trapped inside, with no memory of how he got there or who he is, he must rely on his most primal instincts to survive. But as he attempts to free himself from the carnage and escape an impossible situation, a darker side is revealed. Even if he manages to survive, the man may have to face the horrible consequences of an earlier, forgotten life.Written by

This flick hardly has any dialogues. But lot of mourning, cursing and hallucinations to fill the gap.
"Wrecked" is a quite slow moving and a painful drama wrapped in a mystery shell. The plot is rather straightforward at start but then it begin to throw quite a number of mysteries and at the same time solving them one by one as it goes. But the real twist comes at the end which ultimately makes you wonder WTF (You can either say what the f or Well that's fantastic on this one!) Basically the whole story is about a 'man' (Adrian Broody) who wakes up in a wrecked car in the middle of woods. Don't bother who is this 'man' as the movie never reveals it. His leg is stuck under the dashboard and one guy who he doesn't know is dead on the back seat with severe injuries. And in front a bit far away there is another man dead supposedly the driver of the car who exited via the windscreen. So this 'man' after living with pain and hunger in one place for few days ultimately manages to get out of wrecked vehicle and realizes that his leg is severely damaged. And the bigger issue he faces is that he cannot remember how he got there and even who he actually is. When he gets some hints of who he can be by examining the rubble around him, he ultimately decide that it's wise to hide away in the woods than being discovered by anyone.
This flick hardly has any dialogues. But lot of mourning, cursing and hallucinations to fill the gap. I can't actually say that it's boring. Well maybe if you expect it to go a bit faster or get bored of seeing the 'man' either sitting in one place for a long time or moving around the woods with a mysterious dog friend who appears from nowhere. At the start it looks a wee bit like the 'Buried'. (But Buried was better).
When it comes to acting there is only almost one actor in the whole flick and that's Adrian Broody. The others are either corpses or one alive but almost good as dead. And the performance by Broody is simply awesome.
