A Film With A Mountain of Plot Holes
15 October 2017 | by comps-784-38265See all my reviews

Whilst most of us are fortunate enough to have not experienced a plane crash

Many of us have been camping and general living out doors. So we know, in a relatively short time, without washing amenities etc, you get a bit grubby.

So by the time Elba & Winslet are getting all amourous after 3 weeks living in the wreckage it is truly remarkable how clean and hygienic they were

Another wonder was the amazing mountain views and Elba's perfectly choiffered beard. Truly remarkable beard, always perfect in every scene, it must be guaranteed plane crash proof

Another, in a long list of recent films, illustrating how stunning views and cinematography are not a substitute for a good script.

Would I watch it again? Naa ! 5/10
