A Collection of Clichés and Moronic Decisions
26 September 2013 | by Claudio CarvalhoSee all my reviews

Sarah (Kate Bosworth) travels with her friend Lou (Lake Bell) to spend the weekend camping in the remote Black Rock Island that was part of their childhood. When they arrive to get their motor boat, Lou sees Abby (Katie Aselton) waiting for Sarah and they decide to give up traveling to the island. Lou and Abby were friends in the past but after an incident with Abby's boyfriends, they have been estranged for many years and do not talk to each other. However, Sarah convinces them to travel with her to Black Rock.

When they are resolving their issues, they meet their former schoolmate Henry (Will Bouvier) that is hunting with his friends from the army Derek (Jay Paulson) and Alex (Anslem Richardson) that worship Henry and Abby invites them to have dinner and drink with them on the beach. Abby gets drunk and she flirts with Henry and he makes a move on her. There is a tragic accident with Henry and his friends decide to revenge him.

"Black Rock" is a movie with a collection of clichés and a history based on moronic decisions. The plot is OK with Sarah trying to make up the situation between Abby and Lou and then the girls inviting Henry and his friends to recall the old times at school. However, Abby's inappropriate behavior and comments, despite she is drunk or not, does not make sense since the guys are strangers and ruins the story. The decision of the deranged Derek and Alex of killing the girls can be accepted, but the two clumsy guys armed with rifles being defeated by unarmed girls, missing or failing the shots is an absurd cliché. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Terror na Ilha" ("Terror in the Island")
