Lead sled that never really left the ground
20 April 2015 | by dracironSee all my reviews

The script for this movie was probably excellent, the execution should have been taken out and shot. The movie is about a pandemic of some sort leaving a couple isolated and trapped in a remote cabin in the woods while it unfolds. When I say unfolds I use the term loosely as the movie gets stuck very early and the over use of flash backs causes it to drag on and on. Attempts to create emotional connection just leave you bored at best. They come far too late in the movie, you are saying OK already I got it 30 minutes ago, what happens next? The problem is nothing happens for a very long time. The positive reviewers of this movie are the ones who do not get it. The movie spells out the ending with blinding clarity but for some reason many people want to make it into more. The ending was never meant to be more than a culmination. There IS NO discovery, no revelation. No insight into the nature of mankind or deeper hidden meaning. The script was meant to be a journey not a destination. I cannot be more specific without giving away the movie, but suffice it to say that the director missed the point of the movie and irrevocably damaged it in the process. They thought they were being clever but instead it took the heart out of what could have been a very good movie.
