After their plane crashes off the coast of a deserted Pacific island, the surviving members of an American soccer team find themselves in the most dire of circumstances with limited resources, dwindling food supply and no rescue coming any time soon. Team spirit evaporates as disagreements cause the group to separate into factions - a violent one lead by an unbalanced ruler (Peck), and a compassionate one led by a selfless player (Parker).Written by
Started off reasonably well although I think the airplane crash scene could have been longer and more interesting.
Up until the point they find the Japanese soldier all was proceeding well, then it all just went to pot. Lord of the Flies this most definitely isnt!
The illogical actions that no one would do if abandoned on a desert island in the middle of nowhere and the poor story just weakened the whole premise and the ending well....SANDS OF THE KALAHARI - I guess the director had just watched that classic and thought he would throw that ending in lol
Could have been good but like most of the films I am watching over the last few years, they just dont seem to have decent story writers and cannot sustain the pace that a good film needs to keep audiences involved.
